I went into this movie expecting something totally different. But what I got was pretty awesome. The shakiness of the amateur videography sometimes caused a kind of "Blair Witch" effect on me, but the professional camera shots that were worked into it balanced the effect. The audio is booming & is much like being at a concert. The style of the movie changes gradually throughout the show, which kept me focused on the screen when I was tempted to just rock out in my seat. The Beastie Boys have been on the scene for a long time. This movie shows not only their ability to rock a sold out show at Madison Square Garden, but it also conveys the amazing connection they have with each and every fan in that audience. If you're a fan, you must see it. Even if you're not a rabid follower of the Boys, you'll still enjoy the show. I left the theater feeling as if I had been at The Garden that night.
