this movie defines the late 1980s when punk was on its way out and punk rocker's only way out was the world ending. Matthew Lillard was astonishing as this smart-mouth yet knowledgeable punk rocker. Great movie, great plot, acting all top notch definitely worth getting into. Awesome!!

This movie was funny, dramatic, and had a really good plot. Pretty good acting and desent ending. This movie is worth a watch!

Entertainment Weekly
For a while, angry young Stevo (Lillard) turns his quest for total anarchy into a grungy, giddy, randomly violent rave. Then reality creeps up and, well, it bites. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Energetic but poorly structured. Full Review

Ultimately, SLC Punk! doesn't have enough dimension to maintain dramatic interest. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Likable for its outlandishness, less so when it shows a self-important streak. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The film has an undeniable energy, and, at times, it works as light entertainment, but there is a problem. The central character is consistently aggravating. Full Review
