I read the negative reviews & tried to hate it, but I couldn’t
I can see how some people may get annoyed at the protagonist of this story. “Killing Bono” is the story of a chronic loser, and from the outset, he makes every bad choice possible, repeats his bad choices, blows just about every golden opportunity to redeem himself. And all the while he cockily convinces himself that he is the last great idealist on the planet. Who would want to sit through 2 hours of this??

Answer: YOU.

Maybe it’s Ben Barnes’ charming portrayal of the loser (a bit like John Ritter’s charming loser character Jack Tripper on “Three’s Company”), maybe it’s the wonderfully acidic script, maybe it’s the parade of lovably bizarre characters, or maybe it’s the suspense of wanting to know if he actually does kill Bono, as the title & opening flash-forward scene tease us. Whatever it is, something about this film will keep you interested & entertained until the very second the end credits roll.

Loosely, very loosely based on the memoirs of Bono’s 70s school chum and rival rockstar Neil McCormick, this film depicts some true events such as the anemic rise of Neil’s 80s pop band “Shook Up!” (they weren’t half bad, check out their videos on youtube) and some not-so-true events that really spice things up in the third act. But since this is a comedy, the fictionalizations are strangely believable if not central to the point of the movie.

“This is not a true story. It is crucial to say that,” says director Nick Hamm in the DVD bonus featurette. “You can be real to the story you’re telling, but your story doesn’t have to be real.”

The real Neil McCormick, when asked about the fictional aspects, sheepishly approved: “We all fictionalise ourselves … I created a version of myself to suit my book … Now, someone has created an alternative version. As a deluded, fame-obsessed young man, of course, I never doubted that one day someone would make a film of my life. It just never occurred to me it would be a comedy.”

That it is. A brilliant & entertaining comedy with a compelling theme driving it. Not many comedies have been able to portray the story of a loser in a fun, vibrant way. But if you’re familiar with the obscure gems “Buffalo 66”, the documentary “Anvil! The Story of Anvil” or the Aussie rocker “Garage Days”, you’ll have an idea of the treat you have in store here.

A final note about the music: I think it features only one U2 song (“Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”), but there are some atmospheric bits that sound hauntingly like U2. There’s one song by Neil’s band Shook Up! entitled “Stop the World”, and most of the other songs seem to be new compositions (or new versions) that actually feature Ben Barnes singing. U2 fans may be disappointed because this is not a movie about U2, although it revolves closely around them. In that respect it’s a lot like another great comedy “Grand Theft Parsons” about famed singer Gram Parsons’ good friend who decides to steal Gram’s body after his death.

“Killing Bono” is a creatively-told fiction that flirts with truth but ultimately takes us in the opposite direction. Hey, this formula worked in “Amadeus” (Mozart), “Immortal Beloved” (Beethoven) and “Impromptu” (Chopin). Sure, why not Bono?

Worth a watch or two
A successful tale of failure. A funny, moving, well acted movie. I thought a movie involving Ben Barn’s hypnotically bad “dancing” and Sheehan in tight pants was definitely worth a shot and I was right. What people seem to be forgetting is that it’s loosely based on a real story and shouldn’t be expected to replicate the real thing to a t. Though the plot is fictional, the characters feel real. Ban Barne’s pretentious yet endearing and persuasive character, along with his Sheehan’s equally excellent acting and 80’s hair brought the characters to life. The script was good, the soundtrack was amazing, the acting fantastic. What more can you ask for? It was also refreshing to see a movie about a band that didn’t make it but not because they necessarily lacked the talent.
