This film is great. It Might Get Loud follows three well known guitarists who span three different generations of listeners. Jimmy Page introduced the world to blue-driven rock with Led Zeppelin, the Edge created sonic masterpieces in U2, and Jack White made the blues popular again in his two piece band The White Stripes. The film examines each guitarist and presents the guitar as much more than a musical instrument. Furthermore, It Might Get Loud aims to show what many guitarists believe- the guitar is not only 6 strings, it is an extension of the guitarist.

While some may be disappointed with the lack of "jamming" from our three guitarists, I was happy to come away from film with more than listening to a few guys play together. However, there are some very cool moments in the film. For example, Jimmy Page starts to play Whole Lotta Love and the Edge and Jack White become in a state of stupor and amazement. Also, there's a In My Time of Dying slide guitar jam that's quite beautiful because we get to see each guitarist add their personality to the song.

I recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of music. It's really a gem.

Me ha encantado el documental aunque si tuviera subtitulos en castellano mejor. Se lo recomiendo a todo el que desee disfrutar de un viaje a través de la guitarra.

I'm a professional musician with a deep connection to the guitar. The best part? So are the three guys here. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Jack White from the White Stripes, and The Edge from U2 share many stories from their time as musicians and describe what it was like to discover the guitar as their "calling" in music. A great movie for any real musician, guitarist or not.

We saw this at the theater & loved it. It is ridiculous to have a word count requirement for a review. Makes me want to ignore review requests.

Led Zeppelin is my favorite band, but recently I have been listening to more White Stripes and Raconteurs. This was a perfect documentary to get more behind the scenes of their music. Jimmy Page's and Jack White's creativity is amazing! The Edge doesn't quite fit among these legends; I would have preferred to see Dan Auerbach with them.

I normally just watch a blu-ray or video once on Netflix and I'm done with it. Very rarely does one come around that I actually want to own — It Might Get Loud is now in my library.

And intimate get-together with three of the most unique guitarists around discussing... well, the guitar. What it means to them, how they get their sound, how they recorded, why they do what they do with it.

The juxtaposition of these three mean is remarkable. Jack White recaptures the love of his old equipment and discusses why it was valid then and how it's valid now. The Edge with his wall of delays, distortions and modulators — looking for that elusive sound that will create the next U2 hit. And the old man himself, Jimmy Page showing you his guitars, his record collection, the old house where Zeppelin recorded.

There's a moment when all three are chatting and Jimmy stands up, picks up his Les Paul and begins slicing out the riff to Whole Lotta Love and you see Jack and the Edge just staring like two thunderstruck school boys as their idol gives them a private lesson.

There's a panel discussion after the documentary that opens up a lot to what you just saw and well worth the view.

Can't recommend this any higher.

If you play, or like guitar, or wonder about what it like to be a thoughtful major rock guitarist this is a great film. It's much better than I expected.
