An amazing "feel good ride" even for non-Maiden fans...
6 November 2009 | by (www.upperception.com) – See all my reviews

First off, i was into metal but not that much into Maiden, i always respected them but didn't listen to them very often.

When the DVD started at a friend's place during a party i began watching "accidently"... Towards the end of the film i was asked where i was and didn't realize i watched the whole movie and completely forgot the time.

Sam Dunn has gone to the next stage, he made a "movie" - which can be enjoyed by anyone, not just metal fans. Right from the beginning you dive into a very private side of a band that doesn't have to be described any closer - that's what this movie is here for. The history and achievements of Iron Maiden are completely unimportant at this point - it is reflected by the adoring audiences around the world which is brilliantly (simple but effective) put in picture. As the viewer you literally meet a group of people telling amazing stories, experiencing memorable moments, sharing a lot of insight and just immediately grabbing your sympathy. Though the main frame of the film is quite simple it never fails to make you lose interest - it is an elegant swing between information, emotion and impression.

I was very impressed by the fact that the making of this documentary was obviously not very expensive. It is a perfect example that a high budget doesn't always capture as much sincerity, passion and honesty as this one does. And this affects you - considering the previous productions of the makers - it is received way less "fanatical" though it ironically covers only one topic.

I can really recommend this documentary to everybody, it is a great display of how famous people can stay grounded even after two decades of filling big stadiums. I was entertained, amazed and moved. A solid gem in a world where the quality of documentaries is visibly declining.
