Bill & Ted Face The Music was released in the US today (August 28), with the first reviews now in.

The Hollywood Reporter called the new film “almost exactly as good as its two big-screen predecessors,” while IGN also praised the film, saying, “Bill & Ted Face the Music manages to recapture both the spirit and energy of the earlier films while still acknowledging the clear passage of time.”

The film sees Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprise their roles from the 1989 and 1991 films, with their titular characters now middle-aged.

The plot synopsis reads: “Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it.

“Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe.”
