  1. This DVD is almost all talk and hardly any music. Very misleading. Save your money.

  2. I have been playing guitar for 35 years and really was not overally impressed. I give two thumbs up for the edge and Page but sorry Jack but you’re not my type of music. Talented yes no insult intended. What I would have preferred to see is Jimmy Page, Brian May of Queen, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton. That would blow the doors off of this. Only problem…, these guys would start competing with each other and not be able to come together. Then again that might not be a problem to watch.

  3. Three amazing musicians of different backgrounds get together to share ideas and approaches. Great concept! This is how this movie was marketed.

    Unfortunately it is not what is delivered. 90% of it is looking back with voice overs of the individuals talking about their history and only 10% of it they are actually

    together playing and interacting. It’s okay but not what was promised in the trailers. Many of the things they express I’ve seen on youtube and magazines

    over the years. Nothing new. I was excited to see the dynamic of them together and was disappointed in how little there was of it. Sony Pictures should be

    ashamed of marketing this the way they have. A great idea unrealized and then deceptively presented to make a quick buck.

  4. First off, Jack White doesn’t deserve a place in this film. Everything about his “persona” is irritating to me.

    I like a few White Stripes and Ranconteurs songs… but overall, he’s too over-rated for my tastes.

    The whole child version of himself watching him play, dressed in similar clothes…. meh… Seems way too contrived.

    When they finally get to meeting each other, it is cool to see them play their riffs in a group setting. Page playing Ramble On solo is a highlight for sure.

    Edge is cool… he goes back through his demo tapes of riffs from Joshua Tree, but really nothing new if you have seen the Classic Albums JT dvd.

    Overall a good rental I guess, but I wouldn’t buy this for $20. Rent it first and decide for yourself.

  5. As an amateur guitarist with a broad appreciation of rock music spanning every generation, I naturally found the concept of this film intriguing. As for the three guitarist in this film, I would only consider myself a fan of Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin. I like a number of U2 songs, but I would no way call myself a die hard. As for Jack White, I am pretty familar with the White Strips and the Raconteurs, like some of his licks, but have always thought he was pretty overrated as a guitarist. The fact that RS ranked him #17 all-time Guitarist is insane. Anyways, as for the movie. It lacked a lot of actual substance. As much as I like Page, he was rather uninteresting and revealed very little about himself. The Edge was disappointingly dull as well, in addition, he basically admits that his expensive gear gives him all of his sound, not his surprisingly lack-luster playing ability . Jack White is the only guy who seems interesting or at least interested in the project. Though, through his awkward “Age 9 self with current self” story telling method, it increasingly feels as his entire persona is forced and it trying very hard to seem like he doesn’t care at all, if you know what I mean. At one point in the film, he admits to copying his “style” from a 2-piece band he saw in North Carolina (name of band I cannot recall). Also, there was actually very little guitar playing. When there was any, it wasn’t very inspiring. There was maybe 15mins of good material in this entire movie.
