Being a Led-head since 1969 my wife and I were very excited to see this movie - it did not disappoint! Songs performed were a best-of their whole catalog, (incl. SWTH...yuk) The concert was done in 2007 thus was tamer than "Song Remains the Same" and the DVD collection that Jimmy Page released a few years ago, but still a great performance. The Sound was loud enough to rock with, but not bone crushing loud... *but* the surround sound was very light and did not have the echos and reverb (or crowd ambiance) I expected. For gearheads, Page did not have *all* of his guitars (only 3 Les Pauls and the double-SG), and his amp backline was limited to 4 Oranges, 2 Plexis, and 2 Petersbergs (Russian semi-marshal clones); however he did have a modern Thermin and a monster custom pedalboard! My normally sedate wife swooned, "Jimmy is *the* Guitar God""!

The footage, of course, will satisfy any Zeppelin fan. It's great. I would caution anyone though to make sure the theater you see it in is equipped to project the sound properly. Where I saw it in Federal Way, WA it WAS NOT!! No surround sound, not loud enough at first until everyone was yelling to turn it up. Even when employees did their best the sound was only projecting from the front. 21st century video with '70's era sound. That was ironic. I'd call it a must see for Zep fans BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE IN A THEATER WITH PROPER AUDIO. Otherwise the experience is greatly diminished and you might as well wait until it comes out on DVD next month - especially if you have a home theater system.

I never saw Zeppelin live, since I was 14 when John Bonham died. But I've seen Plant solo and Jimmy Page (ARMS & Firm), and Page with Plant a number of times over the years. Plant's voice was fading, and Page's playing appeared really impaired. I thought I was going to see a shadow of what they once were. Not so!. Plant's voice and Page's playing were incredible. Plant said they were too old to tour again, and didn't have the energy that they had as young men. Didn't look that way to me. They are 5 years older now, so why not do a limited tour with plenty of rest. They could simulcast each as well, so everyone can see it. Again, incredible concert! Plus for a true Zep fan, their set list didn't include just the hits.

Amazing performance by one of the greatest rock bands known around the world. This will be out on DVD soon, but DO NOT miss the chance to see this on the big screen with a few of your closest friends. Throughout the movie I kept thinking that these guys could really have made a fortune if they had just toured one more time, but when it was all done I realized that it will never happen again and what this film represents is their final gift to the true diehard fans.

The show was great! It was amazing to see the crew back together on stage. Jimmy Page can still play incredibly well and I truly wish the band would tour again. the theater sucked! The seats are too small. I'm 6'3", but you would think they built this theater for people that are less than 5'! Everything about the sound was awful The quality was ridiculously poor with distortion coming from the left channel in the treble range and it wasn't loud enough. In addition, the sound quality was muddles slightly with very little tightness in the lower bass range. I've heard better sound quality from $200.00 computer speakers. It's a concert movie, sound is half of the experience if not more! You would think for the additional charge totaling $18.00 a ticket you would at least get what you paid for.
