So not great. Writing and lyrics and bad and David really doesn't pull this off. But I can't help but somewhat enjoy it, the music is still decent and the other actors are great. Watch at your own risk
Great performances, poor writing
I was pleasantly surprised by Hasslehoff's performance. He managed to stay on level with the rest of the superbly talented cast in both vocals and character. The choreography was very mediocre. The storyline was quite drab and confusing, and I don't think it lived up to the original writing of Jekyll and Hyde at all. Overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone who isn't hypercritical.
This is the least sparkling adaptation of a sci-fi story that I have ever seen. Bland characters whose objectives are dulled by poor performance by the actors, especially the lead. I didn't even finish watching this.
