Storyline

In 1989, the Rolling Stones go on their "Steel Wheels" tour: Jagger, Richards, Watts, Wood, and Wyman, backed by three singers, a sax, four horns, and two keyboards. In Turin, Berlin, and London, they perform on a gigantic stage in front of masses. The staging includes huge air-filled figures of women and of a wolf; there are fireworks and a light show. On stage, the musicians are sometimes yards apart, with Jagger racing up and down wide staircases that project like wings to the left and right of the stage. All the while, the music pours forth, sixteen songs in all, from "Satisfaction" and "Sympathy for the Devil" to "Start Me Up" and "Rock and a Hard Place." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

TOO larger than life
24 February 2002 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I had high hopes for this IMAX film. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. What should have been a revolutionary concert film turns out to be 85 minutes of the Mick Jagger show. Now, that's really not a big surprise as he is, after all, a legendary frontman for a legendary rock band. But seeing him (and to a lesser degree Keith Richards and Ron Wood) in IMAX proportions, posturing around the stage and "playing" with the huge blow-up dolls is more than anyone can handle. The emphasis here was NOT on the music, but on their obvious reactions to being filmed by a huge IMAX camera. I have only seen the Rolling Stones in concert once (for their 1999 tour), but I have to say that this concert was fairly disappointing. The entire concert was not filmed, as you can see the list of songs near Charlie Watts' drum kit several times in the movie and a few--Harlem Shuffle, Angie, Jumping Jack Flash--were not filmed. I could not believe they left off the latter song, one of the Stones' signature songs. The songs they did perform were over-extended versions of other classics like Satisfaction, where Mick climbs the rafters and catwalks and just acts silly. I glanced around the IMAX theater while this movie was playing, and everyone was frozen in their seats. It would have been a good opportunity to really "cut loose" and move to the huge images and sound, but no one did. The filmmakers really missed out on an opportunity to film a great concert with "At the Max." You are left with the feeling that the Stones were patting themselves on the backs for "revolutionizing" the concert film.
