The movie features AC/DC live at the Pavillion De Paris on December 9, 1979, during the tour that would be singer Bon Scott's last. After almost ten minutes of glimpses at the backstage life, the real movie starts as the band is introduced playing live on stage. Although the band is still in their '70s minimalist era with few stage effects and pyrotechnics, the live performance is considered one of the best and most energetic of their career. The live concert is intercut with quasi-fictional interviews with the members of the band. The interviews took place in Reims, France, two days before the concert.Written by
T.N.T was preformed during this show, but the cameramen did not film it because they personally did not like the song. However the audio recording can be found on the album of the same name featured in the 1997 box set Bon Fire. See more »

few could rock harder and this flick has the goods - always RIP Bon Scott
Shot in France during the Highway to Hell tour of Europe, this has finally been restored and released to DVD. Why it took so long only a few can really say, but thank goodness it has arrived! If you want to see why AC/DC were cooking hotter than an 1000-ton engine on steroids, this performance shows what was up: energy and even charisma from Scott and Angus Young (not to mention the latter's quintessential strip dance, here in Bad Boy Boogie). It also features some interviews with the group - things about how Scott joined the group (he was originally their chauffeur of all things), writing vs performing, the Young brothers and how they think of one another (good overall, and booze of course comes up), and only a tiny bit of footage put outside of the concert.
One might wonder if this will go into Song Remains the Same territory at a scene like that, if their live songs will be put to the band doing this that and the other thing. Nope - this is 90% on stage, and because of that you see them doing what they do best: rocking hard, pushing the crowd into a frenzy (watch as Young goes in the audience during 'Rocker'), and it help that the songs are all 70's era - not a filler in the bunch; 'Girls Got Rhythm', 'Highway to Hell', 'Walk All Over You', 'Live Wire', and the cream of the crop comes at the end with 'Let There be Rock', which, maybe just from not being played as much as some of their songs on rock radio, has a fresh quality and brazen force that is perfect.
The camera-work doesn't get too crazy throughout - it doesn't have to, and it fits for the music that's being made on stage: show this band working their butts off and show what Scott and the Youngs and everyone else could do when on all cylinders. It's probably not the best rock documentary, but as far as just plain rock *concerts* go caught on film, it's in the top 5.
