The actors aren’t musicians in real life. Luckily for the actors, they had a pretty authentic coach — Tom Morello, the guitarist of the metal band Rage Against the Machine, acted as the chief metal counsellor.

For teenage misfits Hunter and Kevin, the path to glory are clear: devote themselves to metal, win Battle of the Bands, and be worshipped like gods. “Metal Lords” is disappointingly formulaic, but Hunter’s restless energy keeps the picture lively, all the way up to its cathartic musical finale. The film may be cinematic comfort food, but its creators do earn our trust and nail all the essential beats they need to along the way.
