It's high on charm and low on quality; the writing is pedestrian at best, the characters are paper-thin, and director Allan Moyle lets the music do the heavy lifting. Full Review
May 28, 2016
It was never on the cards that Allan Moyle, the director of Pump Up the Volume, would deliver an authentic study of modern youth with his new film Empire Records. But the picture is barely even set on this planet, let alone in this era.

The biggest audience laugh at a recent showing came when a guy deadpanned, "This movie speaks for our generation." The sun can't set too soon on this Empire. Full Review

A great nineties film-if you never actually experienced the nineties. Full Review

Rating: C- -- The movie is too blatant a throwback to crass '80s teen fodder to really work. Full Review

Product Description:

This rocking, slice-of-life comedy examines one so-strange-it's-normal day at a busy record store, from the manager's attempts to cope with his bizarre young staff to the loves, lusts and whinings of his slacker clerks. From the director of "Pump Up the Volume."

Plot Synopsis:

Empire Records is a small music store staffed by a diverse bunch of slackers. As the teens sort out the various crises in their lives, they soon discover their jobs are on the line. This is because the giant franchise Music Town wants to buy out the independent Empire. Can the grungy staff avoid the specter of capitalism -- and keep their jobs intact'
