After watching this the other day its a perfect example of how heavy metal bands that have been going for 30 years still manage to sell out all over the world and still have a massive follwing. Iron Maiden are perhaps the of the most hardworking bands around, and Bruce Dickinson is a Legend on his own. This film is a must see and worth every penny.

Iron Maiden on of the biggest selling metal bands in history came up with an idea to get a plane, fill it with all the bands gear and fly with singer Bruce Dickenson as pilot round the world.
Ok big tours have been done before but not like this, they travel to areas that not normaly get coverd on a world tour as they can be way to expensive and politacly challenging.
All plans were made and all venues booked, meanwhile film makers Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn were asked to film the band when they are next in the studio. It was the film making duo who asked to document this tour as well they could see the potental of this film.
This is more than just a documetary of the first leg of the 2008 tour but a live concert as well. Plenty of music is included along with stage performances while shots of the band relaxing and going about the day to day routine of touring in this manor.
Interviews with the band and stage crew not always in a sit down and talk way but as the production is being done show a real open feeling to the film. Fans get a say in this as well with many shots of the fans getting a say to how much this means and by the look on the faces of them they do not lie.
Some of the shots of the Boeing 757 in flight are astounding to say the least. With the plane being given a maiden paint job and the blu ray gives these some crisp mouth dropping views of the plan in flight. This is so good i could not even think it would be done as well with CGI.
The sound is as expected crisp and fresh, great sound from Nico as well helps to make my room shake via my sub woofer. DTS HD, Dolby surround and stereo tracks cover all areas. For me the stereo is my choice but all sound great.
Meet the band in a new light and see the world as a music family on one two hour documentery. Then watch the show uncut after it. Yes you can see the concert all in one as well with the blu ray giveing this option on one disc.

Great DVD from an incredible tour
only criticism would be that there's no footage from the Twickenham show, which I went to ;) but still
(ok i know it wasn't on the same leg)

well worth buying, get it

Also saw this film at a Vue cinema (Islington) and agree wholeheartedly that its a superb and very human tour documentary but also I flound it very funny in a Spinal Tap way. The drummer was a hoot throughout. There are loads of hilarious (mostly intentionally so) moments that could have come straight from that send up film so fans of either should be delighted. 100% recommended for fans of Maiden without any hesitation.

A great movie at the cinema. A fantastic representation of the band on their record breakind SBIT world tour. Should look and sound stunning on Bluray. Oh yeah, to the above reviewer, I believe that there is an option to watch the 16 tracks of live footage in there entirity, with no interuptions, sort of like a live gig but with each song from a different city with a different crowd. Should prove to be a bit more interesting than your average live DVD.

i saw this at the vue cinema last night, it was amazing,great sound,great visuals.
the only down side is the way it was edited,not one of the songs is played all the way through without stopping for documentary footage,
this wasn't a problem at the cinema,but it will be a problem when you're at home and you want to rock out to maiden!
i just hope the blueray has the option to watch the concert footage on its own
