Movie Reviews

Slightly disappointed
PSM/Bokor | United States | 12/01/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Without a doubt, this DVD contains an excellent playlist of Bad Religion songs. Unfortunately, the audio is disappointing. The vocals are often drowned out by the instruments. When I first watched it, I was slightly disgruntled; however, during my second viewing, I turned up the volume and found myself enjoying the experience.The riot material is pathetic. The camera wasn't inside for the actual riot. You saw the tentative beginnings of one, then the camera footage immediately cut to outside the theater for the aftermath. I felt very misled by the promise of riot material.I would only recommend this DVD to Bad Religion fans or someone who wants to build upon their collection of punk performances. Undoubtedly, Bad Religion is an amazing band, but the audio quality on this DVD sells them short."
What "riot?"

"Ok the first half of the video is from a rarely seen live concert from the '88 Suffer tour. The sound quality is poor , but it's still cool..HOWEVER..the supposed infamous riot footage on the second half is nothing more but 30 minutes of filming broken glass and firetrucks..we don't see the actual rioting at all...NONE....the movie package misleads by saying " SEE THE RIOT IN IT'S ENTIRITY FROM FIRST BEER BOTTLE THROWN TO THE LAST , THE THROWING ROCKS , ect" ...none of this is seen.we see the footage where the promotor shuts the show down because the fire marshall thought it was too overcrowded....but no actual rioting..just 30 minutes of boring footage of broken glass...what a waste of [money]....don't buy it ....don't waste your money....I only gave it 2 stars for the concert in the first half.."
Really cool Bad Religion DVD
Rikk | Lakewood, Ca. USA | 11/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I must say that this DVD is not a Hollywood Magical Production. It's reality punk rock from the gutter. A historical milestone in the genre. Produced on video and packaged well, for the dvd format. The features are great, comments, the backstage footage is cool too, and the concert at Devonshire Downs is really awesome of the bands "suffer" tour from 1988. The sound quality is a little raspy in the first song, Greg Graffin is a little drowned out, but the mix is better after the first song, and you can hear the vocals, bass, drums, guitar, it's rad footage with Graffin, Greg Hetson, Jay Bentley, Brett Gurewitz, and Pete Finestone on Drums. This is the original line up. Two songs; Part III and Doing Time are professionally edited with awesome sound and multiple camera action. The full concert has a real raw sound, it's really good stuff. Pure Punk Rock the way it's meant to be. The riot is what was used on ABC news in 1990. Lots of reality action from inside the theater as the show gets shut down, and some slow parts, lots of glass. I give this DVD/video a B minus, with a C plus audio. A great colletors dvd worth every penny. If your afraid of punk rock reality don't buy this dvd."
There is more "Bad" about this DVD than just Religion.

"This DVD has VERY terrible sound and VERY low budget video footage. The only good thing is it has alot of songs, and the riot is somewhat interesting. Bad Religion is a good band, but this DVD is awful!! :(
You will feel ripped off if you buy this!! Borrow it first, if you can, before buying it!!! I guess this DVD could always be used as an expensive cup coaster."
