Editorial Reviews

Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most iconic figures in rock and one of the founding fathers of heavy metal, however to many his
Madman persona has overshadowed his considerable musical achievements. God Bless Ozzy Osbourne tells for the first time the
story of his career from the founding of Black Sabbath through to solo stardom and his wider fame beyond. These were the wild days
of his prodigious drug and alcohol intake, of biting the head from a dove at a record company meeting and biting into a bat on stage
but also of the tragic death of Randy Rhoads and the reality TV show The Osbournes. The film follows Ozzy s torturous and
emotionally fraught journey from excess to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment. Featuring never before seen
footage, new interviews with Ozzy himself, his brothers and sisters, his children, his bandmates in Black Sabbath and those who both
inspired him and were inspired by him, this is the first film to take viewers inside the mind and psyche of this legendary figure.
Bonus Features: Q&A with Ozzy and Jack Osbourne / Deleted Scenes / Tribeca Film Festival footage

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but not great... November 22, 2011
By T.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The documentary is worth buying for the low price, although it could have been so much better. At least half of this is stuff you've all heard before a gazillion times. The saving grace for this is the fact that the footage and filming is done very well and gives you new and different glimpses of Ozzy and the quality is excellent as well, which makes alot of the recent/older stuff obsolete. Also included is interviews with Ozzy's 1st marriage children, along with Amiee, the daughter who stayed out of the "Osbournes" reality stuff.

However, there were some glaring misses as well, such as :
1. I wish the Randy Rhoads discussion would have been longer and that there would have been more talk about circumstances surrounding the fateful day in 1982 that he died.
2. Not one mention of Jake E. Lee. How can someone that was your lead guitarist right in the heart of your career (1983-1987) be completely ignored. His contributions are noteworthy and they should have been gracious and included what he did for the band, etc, etc.
3. Zakk Wylde. Man, the guy's been a part of the band for over 20 years and they barely show him for about one minute and again, no talk of his importance to the band. A huge miss. I understand the movie's about Ozzy, but Zakk's a big part of that band image and wrote a bunch of the music that Ozzy and his family profited big-time from.
4. In fact, not much of anything about past band members such as the late Randy Castillo. A discussion about him would have been a great addition to this movie, he was instrumental to Ozzy at the time. And it goes w/out saying, it's a crime to banish Lee Kerslake and the great Bob Daisley from any of this. Differences should have been set aside. And nothing from Tommy Aldridge? Don Airey?

5.0 out of 5 stars Really inspirational and entertaining! August 25, 2011
By Tiger
Format:DVD
A wonderful documentary film by Ozzy's son, Jack. Lots of concert footage and fun, but in the end the result is that we find that Ozzy (apparently) believes in "Him upstairs." He has been clean from drugs and alcohol for 5 years now, is much happier, and has a lot of confidence that he never had before. It would be a great film for anyone who loves Ozzy and anyone who needs a little inspiration in their "bad habit" battles! I could tell you more, but it would ruin some of the surprises! GO SEE IT! YOU WON'T BE SORRY.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same Old Story November 10, 2011
Format:DVD
I attended this film's limited theatre release expecting something different from the multitude of documentaries and profiles that came before. After all, his son was involved in making the film and the documentary was promoted as revealing a side to Mr. Osbourne we had never seen. Unfortunately, the film proved to be a rather stock effort, depicting the same stories and person we've seen in previous works.

Considering that the documentary was created "in house", one would expect some footage, pictures, and/or archival content which hadn't been shown before. Yet, there is nothing to be seen here which hasn't appeared in just about every other documentary on the subject. With Jack Osbourne being involved, there was the promise that we might witness an unguarded moment or gain access to a seldom heard party. But, we see no special moments and the interviews are conducted with the same people we've heard from before, sharing the same reflections we've almost come to expect from them. About the closest we come to a unique voice are a few brief moments with Ozzy's children from his first marriage, Jessica and Louis, and some blunt commentary, on Ozzy as a parent, from some of his second brood. At best, we learn the less than surprising fact that Ozzy wasn't involved in his children's lives as much as he should have been and we see that he is a bit more spiritual than one would expect.

In summary, the documentary isn't bad. The problematic issue arises in that no new ground is covered, nothing new is revealed. In what should have been a unique expose, from a fresh point of view, we end up with the same old story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good film but nothing new for old-time fans October 12, 2011
Format:DVD
Saw this movie at a special screening at a local theater in Sept-2011. As a true metal fan of nearly 30 years with a more than passing knowledge of Ozzy and Black Sabbath I found it rather boring. The movie, although well made and informative [to new fans], brings NOTHING new to the story of Ozzy and Sabbath. I realize it's not a documentary [which I would have preferred], but a study of the man behind the music. Unfortunately all the anecdotes and intimate moments the movie makers share with us are rehashes of things we've seen on The Osbournes TV show, Behind The Music specials, and 'behind the scene' spots from various Ozzy concert DVDs throughout the years. If you're new to metal and want to learn how Ozzy became the man he is now, this movie is for you, but for real fans who knew of Ozzy before his TV show, you can skip it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ozzy, warts and all December 21, 2011
By txmikey
Format:Blu-ray
Been an Ozz fan for 30 years. I held out on getting this for a while due to the not so gushing reviews, but finally picked it up cheap from Best Buy and got to watch it.

A few reviewers complained that this was too redundant and not as comprehensive as previous Ozzy docs, but what sets it apart is that this one obviously isn't meant to be an Ozzy career retrospective. It is somewhat chronological up to the death of Randy Rhoads, but it's really more about Ozzy's private life and the fallout to his family relationships from his addictions.

Another reviewer categorized it as just a "fluff" piece, but I'd disagree with that. There are parts of this film in which Ozzy comes across as VERY ugly. After watching it, I realized that I feel much the same way about Ozzy as I do Ace Frehley. Both are heroes to me in terms of the music they played a large part in creating, but I'm much less fond of them as human beings.

Yes it's a little unfortunate we have to hear the dove and bat stories yet again, but I thought that the input from his non "Osbournes" family and particularly long time assistant Tony Dennis did provide a lot of new and interesting insight into what living with Ozzy was like over the years. Tommy Lee sums it up perfectly and provides comic relief with a story I'd never heard that really illustrates just how far off the rails Ozzy was in the 80s. It's always great to see and hear from his Sabbath bandmates and man, it's hard not to be impressed with his daugher Aimee. She is beautiful and very articulate. Has there been a DNA test to prove she's actually the offspring of Ozzy Osbourne??? ;)

I didn't care for the ending scene and thought it was a bit of pandering.
