Based on Neil McCormick's 2003 memoir Killing Bono: I Was Bono's Doppelgänger. The film loosely recreates the story of young Irish rocker McCormick and his younger brother, Ivan, who attempt to become rock stars but can only look on as their secondary school friends form U2 and become the biggest band in Ireland.

U2 was the soundtrack to my youth and they, amazingly, continue to not suck even though they have been famous for so long. Decent movie but the book was much better, as it more accurately portrays the real relationship between all concerned. The book even has a foreward from Bonno, so you know he gets the humor in it all. The movie deviates significantly from reality and even what was portrayed in the book. For instance, the gun thing never happened and was added by writers doing the screenplay for sow drama and action, pretty disturbing but whatever. Anyway, the movie is not bad and worth seeing but the book it's based on is really great.
Watched this movie soooo many times and never get tired of it. The plot, two brothers, Ivan & Neil McCormick dream of starting their own band and making their way to the top in 1980s London/Ireland but instead their childhood friends of U2 are ambitious and successful in their careers of music. However, Neil calls all of the shots, making bad decisions that prevent both him and his Ivan of living the dream that U2 have now sought. Great movie, highly recommended!!!
