Movie Reviews

The LAME-acy of the Beast
David Ernspiker | Louisville, KY USA | 05/25/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Let me begin by saying I LOVE IRON MAIDEN. That said if you also consider youfself a fan. Don't bother buying this garbage. I believe I could have made a better documentary interviewing my local Iron Maiden-Fan friends. There is absolutely NOTHING redeeming about this DVD. No video footage of the band, only photos with some generic pseudo-metal music in the background. This is the first unauthorized documentary I've ever bought and the last. It's completely worthless...DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. The producers of this piece of junk should stick to local-access cable TV. I'm giving this 1 Star simply becasue the amazon rating system won't allow me to leave 0 stars or more appropriatly negative stars"
Pretty bad....

"Being one of the biggest Maiden fans you'll ever meet (and I really mean that), let me tell you that no amount of adoration for this band will make you pleased with this purchase. Perhaps the first clue to the let-down of this DVD is in the title, where it clearly says 'Unauthorized'. Well, that's QUITE appropriate since, in this DVD, you'll see almost NO video footage of the band at all. Much less in action. Rather, expect to see countless dull interviews and background images with (and this is the worst part) music that sometimes clearly ISN'T even Maiden. What the heck is up with that ???On a better note, however, it's always cool to hear more about the band. And if you're like me you can never get enough of anything to do with Iron Maiden. Some of the interviews are interesting and a few are really funny. But its not much. In conclusion, this is a unfortunately dull and very disapointing DVD. Were it on TV it would certainly be worth watching, but I would hardly advice paying money for it unless you have plenty to burn. Rather I would spend my money finishing up my Maiden collection, since every album rocks. ( Or for a better Maiden DVD purchase, pick up their video history, Visions of the Beast- though its more expensive, it's worth it)Thank God for Iron Maiden."
The Great Maiden DVD Swindle

"I'm sorry to write this, as I am a great fan of Iron Maiden, but words are not enough to describe how disappointed I felt when I pressed the play button to watch this DVD. There's hardly any footage of the band, no music by Iron Maiden whatsoever since it hasn't been authorised by the band itself and no new insight into Maiden's biography. Altogether a big disappointment. I wish I had spent my money on something else. Just don't make the same mistake and don't buy it!!!"
Don't blame Iron Maiden for this crap!

"Please go to for all of the authorized CD's and DVD's. The band and their management have repeatedly warned fans about these unauthorized products.

Iron Maiden has nothing to do with them, hence the shoddy quality of this product.
