Storyline

In 1989, the Rolling Stones go on their "Steel Wheels" tour: Jagger, Richards, Watts, Wood, and Wyman, backed by three singers, a sax, four horns, and two keyboards. In Turin, Berlin, and London, they perform on a gigantic stage in front of masses. The staging includes huge air-filled figures of women and of a wolf; there are fireworks and a light show. On stage, the musicians are sometimes yards apart, with Jagger racing up and down wide staircases that project like wings to the left and right of the stage. All the while, the music pours forth, sixteen songs in all, from "Satisfaction" and "Sympathy for the Devil" to "Start Me Up" and "Rock and a Hard Place." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Too cool for words
14 October 1999 | by El Guapo-2See all my reviews

If you love movies, you'll love this. If you love the Stones, you'll love this. If you love concert movies, you'll love this! It's just an awesome movie-going experience. This film is the 1989/1990 Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle world tour filmed in the IMAX format, when projected in 70 mm film on a screen 5 stories high, completely fills your field of vision. The sound is mixed in Dolby 6-track and is deafening!

What keeps the movie going is Mick Jagger, front and center for most of the movie and his awesome energy as a performer will have you tappin' your foot along to the oldies but goodies like "Satisfaction" and "Ruby Tuesday", as well as the newer songs such as "Start Me Up" (the opening number) and "SadSad Sad".

It was just an incredible experience and the tunes were in my head for weeks afterward, I don't know if it was because of the loudness, or the memorable impression I walked away with. 10 out of 10!
