 Just Amazing!!

| | See all Calium's reviews (2)

Saw this at the cinema and was just blown away by it! I was wide eyed for the whole 2 hours with a massive smile on my face, simply put an amazing band with amazing fans.
If you would like to understand how they've managed to stay around for 30 years with little or no radio air play while the mass produced phony pop brigade can barely last 3 years then this is a great place to start. If you like live music and you'd like to see how a world tour is done then you'll love this.

 A Must Buy...

I am of an age where I have been fortunate enough to see Iron Maiden over much of their career. There have been many highlights from meeting the band backstage at Leicester's de Montfort Hall when I was in my teens, via the headlining 'Beast at Reading' Saturday night in August 1982, numerous tours, all the albums, Donington, last summer's awesome Twickenham show through to the one night only showing of Flight 666 in Derby last month.
This, by any stretch of the imagination, is a wonderful film, more than a snapshot, more than a 'fly on the wall' rockumentary, and in my view should be awarded an Oscar for the best factual piece of film making in years. It is that good.
I defy anyone, fan of the band or not, to not be entertained for 2 hours, by not only the band members (Nicko....you are a star!), but also the supporting cast of thousands in the road crew, the management, the fans along the way and so much more. 'Spinal Tap' it most definitely isn't!! There is so much more to this band than 6 rock musicians on stage. This film is an intriguing insight into the logistics, relationships, humour, professionalism, side interests (Nicko golfing / Adrian playing tennis with Pat Cash, for example) and the obvious cameraderie of the band and fans.
The sections of the film dealing with 'Ed Force One' and Bruce in particular, are extremely interesting. While it is common knowledge that one of Bruce's alter egos is that of professional airline pilot, it is nevertheless somehow warming, somehow very 'British' for him to take on the dual roles so brilliantly.
It is not often I leave a cinema enthused by what I watched, but 21st April was one such night.
I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of the CD and DVD right now. Roll on 25th May!
Buy one. And another for your mum....she'll love it!

PS - the book 'Bruce Dickinson - Flashing Metal with Iron Maiden and Flying Solo' by Joe Shooman is a great read too!

 Superb piece of film making

Saw this the other night at the flicks and was totally blown away. I should add that despite the fact I'm in my 40s, I've only just caught up with Maiden - during this tour actually - and as a rockumentary that captures the magic of the band and the fanatacism of the fans, it's a MUST. Sam Dunn needs awards for this. Big time!

 Contender for best band documentary ever.

It's been an exceptional 12 months for heavy metal legends, Iron Maiden. Not only has there been the superlative 'Somewhere Back In Time' tour(which I was honoured enough to see them play at Twickenham Stadium last summer)there has also been the well deserved Brit Award and now this fine tour diary, stroke concert film 'Flight 666'.
Watching this production-which I caught as a one day cinema screening, I demand any music fan, even non Maiden fans,to fail to be impressed with the sheer effort involved in putting on a world tour, such as this- In particular Bruce Dickinson's dual role as frontman and pilot of their tour plane, 'Ed Force One'.
There is much to enjoy in this movie, not only the superb musicianship displayed by the band members, but the hard graft and good humour put in by the backstage crew(the lighting riggers, music technicians and manager Rod Smallwood ect) including the many scenes of the band relaxing inbetween gigs involving several rounds of golf and the often pleasing insights into the band members individual personalities, when interviewed by the documentary team.
But it's not all high jinks and laughter. There's also a serious current running through the documentary style footage, particularly from the fans from some of the more underprivileged countries visited on the tour, paticularly in South America.
Here it's fascinating to view the fanatical and almost religious fervour in which local fans support Iron Maiden. Some saving up months of wages, or according to one account, even leaving their job just to see their favourite band play.
In one particular, highly moving scene, an emotional fan clutches a prized possession, that of one of Nicko Mcbrain's keenly won drum sticks, tears running down the man's face, overcome by the whole experience.
To some of these individuals, living in still oppressive regimes, you sense that attending a rock concert is just as much a symbol of freedom of expression as it is the enjoyment and celebration of music.
Bruce Dickinson sums it up nicely when he puts it that for all these years he thought Maiden was just about the music and know he's beginning to think that they are doing something genuinely important. Watching 'Iron Maiden: Flight 666' your left in no doubt that he's right!
"Up the Irons" indeed!

 Excellent film - Great music and very funny. 'Up the Irons'!

I too saw this film at the cinema and have to say after the disappointment of the ANVIL film, this really was a nice surprise. The documentary follows the group as they travel the world on their 2008 tour (although it misses the European part out). It blends live concert footage with behind the scenes stuff, some of which is absolutely hilarious. The guys obviously get on really well, even after 25+ years and it shows. The fact that Maiden bothered to tour some countries you don't usually associate with metal and rock'n'roll shows just why they are as popular as ever. They treat their fans with respect and the fans love them even more.

My only gripe (and the reason i haven't given this 5 stars) is that some of the songs are played more than once during the film, thus there is a degree of repetition ('Fear of the Dark' is a great song but it must have turned up three times in this film). A little more variation would have been nice!

However this is easily the best documentary i've seen in ages and runs Spinal Tap very close to the all time winner of 'Best film about a rock band'. When you aren't rocking with Maiden in this film (and the live footage is brilliantly filmed, making you feel as if you are there) you'll be laughing your head off at some of their antics and quips to the camera.
