Storyline

Very much a follow up to their 1991 concert film masterpiece Live At Donington, No Bull was designed to capture the over the top spectacle that was the 1996 Ballbreaker tour. On board again was the renowned director David Mallet who once agaian used film to document the proceedings, this time around at the Plaza De Toros De Las Ventas bullfighting arena in Madrid, Spain. Ultimately rushed for release in 1996 for the home video market, Mallet was always unhappy with the results of the final product. Until now. The film has been completely re-edited in HD and the audio remixed in both Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound - for the ballbreaking experience it was always meant to be.

Poor Reproduction
16 June 2006 | by teejay17See all my reviews

This concert should not have been released; as a follow up to "Live at Donington," "No Bull" is of very poor quality and does not compare to the former at all.

Basic synopsis: AC/DC on stage being filmed (most likely) with a camcorder, (early 80s at that). The reproduced sound is just awful. The saving grace of this film is that the band is playing old songs from earlier times that are never usually performed at concerts; however, sadly, these songs are marred by poor video and sound quality--what could have been great becomes something that is not. By the end of the film, something that should have been exciting and refreshing is anything but; indeed, to watch this film is a true test of patience, when trying not to turn the DVD off and put something else on instead.

Not only do I own this DVD, but I have also seen it playing at a few different pubs as well, and the crowds do not respond well. Something that is supposed to be exciting and uplifting is instead marred by poor quality to the point that even if one strains hard to listen, the songs are almost indistinguishable. Soon the DVD becomes poor quality background noise to the din of the pub-goers because the DVD cannot keep people's attention. Basically, the DVD gives a bad impression of a band that usually can blow any crowd away, live or otherwise.
