This vanity film for the group Led Zeppelin has basically only the music to offer. Even the excitement for that dries up after twenty minutes, in this overlong two-and-a-half-hour film. It combines footage from their 1973 Madison Square Garden concert and newly inserted fantasy footage, that could be best described as footage you'd just love to take an axe to.

Among the few golden moments, they include live performances of "Stairway to Heaven", "Rock and Roll" and "Black Dog". However, the concert footage is nothing to scream about, mainly because a lot of the fancy cinematography has been done countless times before in other concert films. The fantasy footage is distracting and makes the film longer than it needs to be. I can't even figure out how a movie, featuring an incredibly amazing band and a stylishly filmed format, could lack so much energy in the filmaking and music departments.

My Rating = Two Stars
