Pretty VacantBy scoopmuldoon (5 reviews) from newton le willows , 15 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]You can either do this kind of thing as a 100% accurate factual biopic or as an allegorical fairytale fable type thing - both have been known to work extremely well. What doesn't work however is mixing them up, seemingly at random. I couldn't work out at any given time whether it was factually incorrect to make a point or because of poor research or because nobody was that bothered!
Sid and Nancy is a film that loses nothing in terms of emotional impact or coherence if you watch it at 2x speed with the sound off.

Outstanding electricBy a customer , 23 Apr 2013Outstanding acting, direction and cinematography. Superb. Who are these people watching that don't get this? I don't remember seeing a better biopic, it's a blast.
Toxically DepressingBy Cato (705 reviews) from Lydbury North , 12 Apr 2013Can't say I enjoyed this much. The acting was very good, except that I couldn't hear a lot of what Nancy said, apart from the expletives. There were some good scenes of 70's London, and of course the music was memorably exciting, but the whole tenor of the film was one of depression and ultimate doom. Yes, there was a love affair, but the circumstances in which it was conducted were squalidly nihilistic in the extreme. A definite downer.
very goodBy a customer , 26 Jan 2013very good movie, gary oldman is great he can play everyone, ABORTION KEEP IT LEGAL!!!!!ha ha ha ha ha ha
Shockingly awfulBy a customer , 24 Aug 2012Terrible .. lots of points not even real, even the bits that extra dramatised for the film...tried to hard to be PUNK but couldnt pull it off..
not badBy cheesekake (1283 reviews) from uk , 02 Jun 2012this film is definitely good no doubt about that, but I think it has some extra bits in for dramatisation effect, I know that Johnny Rotton said the film was only slightly true and the rest was far fetched.
guess its one of those films you watch and make your own mind up about
