A rock bio about the first big all girl rock band. Michael Shannon gives his best performance as the producer, but the principals also give great performances. Interesting and entertaining.

It was alright. Worth renting. I'm really glad I didn't grow up in the 70's. I don't care for the fashion.

I loved this movie. it's left me craving the music and the fashion of the era. great music, wonderful shots & moods. Kristen Stewart was an amazing believeable joan jett. i've seen it twice and would go again....

I love the older rock era, and when I watched the movie, I was NOT disappointed! I loved it! It explained where and how Cherie came into the picture of Joan Jett, I felt that the movie portrayed both women well. The only thing I would ask for is to see more of how they went on after the movie. Maybe more details or time spent on the "where they are now" attitude. I would definitely

The movie may be a little too tame in the end, but at its best it is just wild enough. Full Review

A soaring, sympathetic ode to the outlaws, subversives and insurgents who occupy the edges of popular culture, making them safe for everyone else's dreams. Full Review

The problem with The Runaways is that they went with the wrong girl. Full Review

It's an artistic and authentic evocation of an era but a rather surface-skimming story of the '70s all-girl rock band fronted by Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. If anything, it just makes you want to know more about Jett's back story and Currie's subsequent life. Full Review

The wispy insubstantiality of The Runaways can't be blamed on its cast--Fanning, Stewart, and Shannon are all good in their roles, even if their range is never tested. Ultimately, maybe it's OK that there's not much below the surface of this great-looking but shallow movie. Full Review
