I couldn't find a great review, so you are hereby warned. Some think it's flawed, but semi decent, other hate it. Well, we have to make up our own minds anyway.

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/03/30/movi ... eview.html
https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-a ... na-records It mentions Jason:
Among the veteran actors, Jason Isaacs, as Neil’s hustling dad, is good in everything.

I really enjoyed the movie. Jason was in it just enough. Sixties and 70s music was what I was into in those days, so I sang along . . . as did others in the theater.

I just watched the movie and it's quite entertaining story.
Displays of clothes and wigs, truly amazing, so we can see Jason in few stylizations(The rest of actors obviously too). I wouldn't mind if he had more screen time, but I assume for the story it was enough.

I watched this tonight. It was OK, The music was great, but I thought it became a bit long. It reminded me a bit about Creation Stories, having the lead character talking about everything that happened. I don't know why a lot of music movies choose to do that, since they aren't saying that much interesting. Show don't tell.
I wish Jason was in it more. he probably has about 5 - 10 minutes screen time (but I haven't checked).
