The Dirt review – slick Netflix Mötley Crüe biopic mostly rocks

Saturday 05:09 GMT

Hot on the heels of Bohemian Rhapsody’s mystifying four Oscar wins and box office glory comes The Dirt, the long gestating biopic of the 80s glam-rock band Mötley Crüe.

Things begin in media res at a party featuring exactly the kind of debauchery you would expect from a Mötley Crüe biopic directed by the Jackass maestro Jeff Tremaine. It’s unlikely to convert skeptics or reveal hidden depths to diehard fans but it moves at a clip and offers enough novelty to overpower the cliches as it chronicles both the punch-drunk nights and the sobering mornings after of this hard-living band.
