This film shows the Alice Cooper band at its peak -- and unfortunately, during its final tour. The comedy segments where a film director and viking are pursuing the band are very weak, but the concert rocks! All of AC's classics (18, Billion Dollar Babies, I Love the Dead) are represented and rendered expertly. Alice was a major influence on rock and metal, but his crowd interactions are pure punk shtick -- taunting and insulting front row fans. The theatrics are minimal compared to other performances, but the music overshadows the stunts with a guillotine and saliva drenched mannequins. If you're an Alice fan, check this out on DVD -- and play the Concert Only option. Or, if you'r an AC neophyte, prepare to be surprised by a great performance by an underrated rocker.
