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

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?

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.

Ozzy. When I was 13 years old (1982) he was my God. Over the years I have mellowed on his Godlike status, having discovered a lot of things about the Ozzman along the way. Does the fact that Geezer wrote all the lyrics in Sabbath and Bob Daisley wrote all the lyrics to Blizzard and Diary and so much more tarnish Ozzy's legendary status in my book? Just a little. Ozzy did come up with melodies in Sabbath and the original Blizzard Of Ozz. Melodies. He can't play a single musical instrument, and yet he is a Rock God. Well... what you get in God Bless Ozzy Osbourne (executive produced by his son Jack) is an in-depth (not too in depth) look at The Madman of Rock'n'Roll. Paul McCartney even chimes in and Tommy Lee has some graphic stories to tell. In the end, we true Ozzy fans have to sift through the debris to see what we think. If anything, this documentary praises Ozzy's resilience and the fact that he finally, finally, finally got clean and stays clean after all those decades of self-destructive abuse. Alcohol and pills and cocaine and anything Ozzy could get his hands on, he did. The fact that he is still alive is amazing. Interviews with his sister and brother are interesting. The Sabbath stuff is great to watch. They did glaze over the Randy Rhoads era too quickly, which is sad (also, they show the Brad Gillis era Diary footage right in the middle of talking about Randy, which is lame). Jake E. Lee non-existent. Nothing much on Zakk either except for some live performances. This is about Ozzy, and the history here has been brushed over a little to make you feel a little sorry for him, but not too much. The telling interviews with his children (both sets) are brutal and sincere.Read more ›

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.
