This review is from: It Might Get Loud (DVD)
It's hard to put into words just how riveting this documentary is. If you are a fan of Led Zeppelin, U2, or Jack White (who I had never heard of before this film) you will want to watch this over and over. Some of the coolest parts: watching the Edge as he listens to old tape of U2 giving birth to a song, complete with Bono faintly counting time in the background; watching Jimmy Page put a 45 on a turntable and play air guitar in his home to one of his early influences - the 1958 hit The Rumble; watching Jack White build an electric guitar in the opening scene, and just being delighted overall at this "young" guy's appreciation for the blues and his talent as a musician.
My favorite band is Led Zeppelin, my wife's is U2, so this film would have had to absolutely fall on its face for us to not like it. But even as excited as we were, as high as our expectations were, and as much as this film had to live up to in our eyes, it did, and more!
