Incredible concert supported by background documentaries
3 January 2002 | by KewaluSee all my reviews

This is one of the most powerful concerts I've ever seen (on film, or live, for that matter). Rage's electric current ignites the crowd with each song, staying very focused on the music to communicate to the audience. There is 4 or 5 breaks edited in during the concert (seperate from the performance, which can be skipped via the chapter forward command) in which various causes Rage supports are explored briefly, such as the issues and protests surrounding corporate globalization, the Zapatista resistance, NAFTA, and a couple others. Bonus materials such as an interview with Noam Chomsky and brief looks at the band's travels while in Mexico are interesting and allow the viewer a nice "inside" look at RATM's thoughts and travels.
