Greatest Concert Film Ever

Author: paperstsoapco-2 from United States
19 February 2012

This has to be one of the most visually brilliant concert movies I've ever seen. I would go as far to say it had some of the most brilliant visuals of any movie I've seen. Any fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Enter the Void and Speed Racer type-psychedelic quick-cut mind-blowing exploding color visuals will appreciate this movie.

The visual aspect is impressive enough on its own, but when perfectly synced to the ridiculously energetic live show and music of the Chemical Brothers, it takes on a transcendent euphoric life.

10/10. HIGHly recommended.

Candy for your brain

This movie is The Chemical Brothers at their best! An absolute feast of amazing and stunning visuals, set to the music of two of the original pioneers of electronic music. The direction of Adam Smith is outstanding, directing and creating the show with the Chemical Brothers, and then directing the movie. The movie has been filmed at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, and the direction and editing immerses the viewer straight into the atmosphere. The brothers are in vintage form, and produce a long and satisfying set with tunes covering their whole range of albums.

A truly brilliant, impressive and overwhelming experience. A must to watch on a big screen with a pumping sound system to get the full effect. 9 out of 10 stars.

A great show by the Chemical Brothers

Author: Nicolas Giraldi from Argentina

Excellent show, sound and camera work like only the Japanese can provide

The theater blow up with people dancing like it was a live show, amazing show to watch on a theater, great experience if you've never watch them live or you want to hear them again on full volume

There are a few "cut scenes" between the songs that are pretty cool to watch, I loved the girl on stasis and the crazy people with the flies

Need to get a BR Copy ASAP

Great show if you're a fan of electronic music and irresistible if you're a fan of them

Awful editing. Do not purchase this DVD

Author: junmast from United States

great Cinematography, great sound recording, great lighting, great performance but AWFUL EDITING! it shows the audience too often. half of the film is just about people raising their arms and showing their armpits...I mean, who wants to see those crowds that often? Many of stereotype editors think that they should contribute the dynamic mood of the concert, by using MTV editing style. Yes, I know that works most of the times. But the Chemical Brothers gig is an exception. Their visual effects are stunning and already perfect. It doesn't need that typical MTV editing. This is like watching the film Avengers and in the screen, the audiences are keep showing. Chemical brothers has the best visual effects for the live show and it's pity that the editors ruined it.
