Movie Reviews

An IN-Your-Face, Non-Stop Punk Barrage!!
Jim Dooley | Manville, NJ United States | 07/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally, The Long Out Of Print Dead Kennedys "Target Video" has been released! This short, but powerful DVD, focuses on this important political hardcore punk outfit during their late 70's, early 80's heyday...Snippets of Jello Biafra's Mayoral campaign....And the never seen Target Studio Sessions...Any fan of early punk, or even today's, should definately get this piece of history!!! Sing-A-Long Special feature, and Band Bios accompany this disc. Check out my personal favorite visual,"Bleed For Me", which the entire band looks so totally "tight"...See For Yourself why Dead Kennedys will always be the Inventors of the Political-Punk Movement!!"
Like Dead Kennedys? Don't miss this one.

"If you like Dead Kennedys, seeing how they looked like in stage back in the late 70's is mandatory. Jello Biafra is, as usual..., the band's energy is fantastic. It's one of the best music DVDs ever, I give it 4 stars only because it is a bit short (30 mins). It's as raw and real as punk rock can get."
Insight to the band onstage...
Dead Kennedys | Oz | 02/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As someone who was born in 1984, I was too young to enjoy the Dead Kennedys onstage (granted, I wasn't even thought of when these live performance pieces were videotaped), so I find this a truly enjoyable view. It gave me a feel of what an actual Dead Kennedys concert was like, and I suggest to all DK fans of today to pick this up. You'll be glad you did."
P. Bergin | Burp Hollow, OR United States | 06/14/2003

"Mixed quality but very cool old footage of early DKs shows. You get to see them playing in clubs, in the streets, and at a studio that looks like someone's extra bedroom. The sound quality is listenable but this is more interesting for historical reasons."
