Bowie was never HUGE if you compare him to Zep or Van Halen, but he does have a loyal following if this film is any indication. I liked the stage setup with the performers strutting their stuff under a giant spider, however I did object to quite a bit of the choreography. Judging from a few of Bowie's steps he appears to be able to dance well, so why didn't he? Instead of hoofing along with his high energy songs he instead spends his time flopping around on the floor, making exaggerated Kama Sutra/kung fu arm and hand movements, and staging one very juvenile skit with a stooge from the audience. If all this was Bowie's idea he needs to hire someone with more creativity; if not he should fire some of the help. Having said all that, this is still an interesting concert and I especially appreciated the guitar licks of Peter Frampton.
