Movie Reviews

All the Aces!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is an absolute must-have for Motorhead fans, and fans of hard rock/metal in general.

The Classic Albums series has produced some real top-notch stuff, and this is a welcome addition. Focusing on just the one album and the band's history to that point, we get a tour through the Days of Motorhead Past, with old film footage and video stitched-in nicely with brand new interviews as the band explains the origins of the songs on this classic LP.

The real treat here, though, for me anyway, was the inclusion of Dave Brock and film of Lemmy playing with Hawkwind! That kind of thing is VERY hard to find here in the USA.

The 'Virtual Reunion' was good, too. Shame that Phil and Eddie aren't more active nowadays; They definitly still have it.

That's it-I've typed enough. Just buy it already!"
Great Interview, this is not a concert

"In a simple way, in this DVD you'll see:
A lot of interviews with original line up members (Fast Eddie, Phil Taylor and obviously Lemmy) talking about how they released Ace of Spades in datails like the picture that appears as cover, why Lemmy was bumped from Hawkwind and other stuff.
Something great is when they played (with help of tech) the chase is better than the catch, it is going to kick your ass.
If you want a live concert buy 25th still alive & boneshaker DVD, but if you want to know more about the band and very good details buy this."
If you love this album, YOU MUST HAVE THIS DVD !!

"Absolutely incredible !! To see these 3 guys play these songs together again and sound great !! You must see it to believe it.
This is a classic metal album and this is a classic DVD"
A very nice intro to Motorhead

"I never even heard of Motorhead until the late 1980's and didn't really listen to them until 1996. But when I did, it was one of the most physically exciting musical experiences of my life, and my introduction to the group was 'Ace of Spades.' I adore the 'Classic Albums' series and was like a pig in...mud getting to see the band discuss their experiences surrounding the making of the album, as well as do a little catch-up on where they came from and how they became a classic Motorhead line-up."
