A concert movie on an unprecedented scale. Rattle And Hum captures U2 on and off the stage during their triumphant Joshua Tree tour.

King, on a journey which takes them from Dublin to Graceland, from San Francisco to the streets of Harlem, from The Joshua Tree to Rattle And Hum.

The reason for this has something to do with the mood of the song as felt by the band. "With or Without You" and "Where The Streets Have No Name" are in colour showing the tour delivering what the fans want, while songs like "Pride" and "Silver and Gold" give another slant on the performance. There are some really great onstage camera panning moments, placing you right with the band instead of just in front of them.
The video image is anamorphic (1.85:1) and is a mixed bag because of the combination grainy documentary segments to the higher quality concert scenes.
The sound mix also varies. I found "Where the Streets..." had the bass level too quiet for my liking but it picked up in different songs.
The extras are limited to one movie trailer, a bit disappointing. If you are a U2 fan then this title should find a place in your collection right now.
I know that at this time we can not time travel, but this DVD is the next best thing to it. Pop it in the DVD player or instantly download it, set some pure uninterrupted viewing time aside and hit the play button. The trip is well worth the time.

While I appreciate the folks at Paramount finally releasing this on DVD, I wish they could have tried a little harder on the extras. One theatrical trailer just doesn't cut it these days -- especially when such a wealth of material is available! Check out the One Tree Hill outtake on "Best of 1980-90". And Phil Joanou is still breathing, isn't he? Maybe some director's commentary? What about the BOATLOAD of (admittedly) raw footage floating around out there? Come on, people, put forth some effort!
[Note to Phil Joanou: Hey, Phil! How about a Director's Cut with bonus footage, commentary, etc.? Quit hoarding all the good stuff!]

Anyway, the movie's great, the sound is amazing, and U2 is the best band there is. Hey, I said I was a fan -- what did you expect?
