In the terrain of rock bands, implosion or explosion is seemingly inevitable. U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction; this band has endured and thrived. This documentary asks the question why.
U2: Achtung Baby offers a previously unobtainable level of insight into the band during the recording of their most dynamic and well respected album. Via the use of live footage, long forgotten videos....
As of 2010, this film has not been released to home video. U2 (and their label, Universal Music Group) retains the ancillary rights to the film, and is withholding this film from the market until such time as consumer 3D technology has "caught up" and is capable of showing the film as it was originally intended.

In some scenes, U2 are shown for a short period of time playing to an empty stadium. This is mainly due to the fact that U2 had agreed to be filmed playing a show to an empty stadium so they could get close-ups from on-stage. See more »
When I saw previews for "U2 3D", I thought it would be a normal type concert movie, only in 3D. The problem is, though, I was wrong. I saw it Saturday night at a 3-D theater and was just impressed what I saw, what all the effects were. I saw U2 Rattle and Hum and was good, but this was way better. I thought that the way that U2 3D was made and all of the 3-D effects that there were, it was the best. Now the question will be, "will it come out on DVD?" Hopefully, because I would just love to own a piece of history. For you who haven't seen it, see it now. See it because if they do decide to not put it on DVD, you will miss out on a great piece of history. Even though I'm a U2 fan and even if you aren't, you will for certain enjoy it. Who knows, maybe your favorite band will make a 3-D concert film at a point.
