Captain Lee Briggs:
They say, when you hear sounds of devils, all else is quiet. My general question to that is: how do you know that what you are hearing is the work of such devious beings?

I think Angels & Airwaves has only gotten better with every record. This film continues the upward trend. While it's not the best movie ever and I have my issues with it, I think the fact that it is a narrative film that stands on it's own with or without that band's involvement is a real testament to the artistic creativity of this band. This is not a visual interpretation of the record or some completely avant garde piece -- it's a real film with the score done by the band that produced it.
There are very few tongue-in-cheek references to Angels' song titles and themes but where they are, they are appropriate and feel organic. This film was made not to blatantly promote the band but to make a film based on a story they wanted to tell. The music contributes to the story best when the instrumental versions of the songs the fans know the words to accompany the scene they are backing and vice versa.
This film is well shot, production value is high, visuals and sound are stunning, and Gunnar Wright takes us through this space odyssey with grace and poise with direction from freshman director Will Eubank.
I cannot wait to see the scenes that were cut and great the commentaries on the DVD/Blu- Ray.
