It starts with Joe Elliot auditioning for Atomic Mass, the band including Sav and Pete Willis, and goes all the way to their first performance with Rick Allen after his accident.
The casting directors and vocal coaches did a fantastic job. Also, the director was able to pull off the personal background that affected highs (their first EP funded by Joe Elliott's dad) and lows (Steve Clark drinking his father's demons (literally) to death) of the band without overdramatizing them.
Also, the movie shows us the influence that Mutt Lange had on their carreer without forgetting the fact that the Lepps had the skills, the talent and the commitment to make it happen with his producing genius.
If you are a fan of Def Leppard, stop reading and buy this movie immediately. If you were a casual fan of the Pyromania and Hysteria albums, you might as well enjoy a nicely made movie that gives you a glimpse into the history of a hugely popular "pop" metal band.
What do you want??? I WANT ROCK N ROLL!
Def Leppard is one of the only bands whose story and music consistently trigger a multitude of different emotions for me. I personally find the whole band and their story to be incredibly inspirational. Obviously there's Rick Allen's story, which would be pretty hard to top. I also think of Joe Elliott as a quintessential frontman, and he seems much more than that. His passion for music and drive to succeed is palpable, and his and the other guys' determination to keep it together through some tough times is something anyone can take a lesson from. I have all of their albums from On Through the Night to Yeah, and there's not a single one with a bad or even forgettable song. My emotions run the gamut when I listen, from the happy-let's-party feeling I get from songs like Photograph and I Wanna Be Your Hero, to mellow-smooth with songs like Too Late for Love, Breathe a Sigh and Truth, to sad with White Lightning, Scar and Blood Runs Cold, to sexy with All Night (REALLY like that one), Slang, and I Wanna Touch You. Their music captures an entire life, with all its twists and turns.Read more ›
By the way, to previous reviewers: Rick Allen is not played by Kevin Dillon. The actor's name is Tat Whalley.
