Featuring 34 of their hits and new material, the Tim Wheeler-directed "Cuatro!" documents the 1 ½ years Green Day put into making its three latest albums "Uno!," "Dos!" and "Tre!," all of which were released in a span of just over two months in the fall of 2012. With performance and studio footage, Cuatro punctuates the creative process of a band that has been making meaningful music for 25 years.

What would have been really cool is a Bullet in a Bible-type live concert recording of these songs. I would be really excited to see that!
High points are the band members working on various parts of songs in their early development, and discussing the order of songs on the CDs. Also, there are some good moments featuring Green Day live in small clubs.
Low points are clips of the band members doing "spontaneous" pranks where you would expect hilarity and hi-jinx to inevitably ensue, but these clips come across as contrived. Also, I don't think the live videos ever show a song more than halfway through, they are literally short 10-20 second clips, which is very frustrating. Hopefully a true, live DVD is on its way using the arena shows Green Day played on their tour.
I gave this a 4-star review because if you are a Green Day fan, you will still enjoy this DVD and find some parts of it very interesting. Lackluster Green Day material is still better than the best material from 90% of bands.
It was a gift for a heavy Green Day fan.
Go for the purchase, it's not a bad deal.
