it makes you wish they toured. I had my doubts but, they rocked it like nobody else could. Sound was awesome at aliso, they raised the volume after the 1st song or two and I had a little ring in my ear afterwards. As close to a zep show as I will ever get. The way they mixed in the crowd audio was very cool as well.

I have been waiting over 30 yrs for this and not dissapointed! The band was outstanding, Truly the world's greatest and most original heavy metal band or rock band period for that matter.
Jmmy Page was unreal, it was like he never took a break from the music even after all this time. Robert Plant's voice was spot on, no sign of age if anything it was better! His growls and moans more nuanced than ever. JPJ showed he is no minor player, his bluesy groove on the base and his organ work brought the original feel alive. And Jason! His dad is smiling down because Jason channeled him like he was posessed.
What a way to step up the bar. My only complaint is that the theatre did not have the volume turned up to shake the walls. In fact it started so low that the entire audiance demanded to "TURN IT UP!"
If these guys don't tour the world will be a poorer place indeed

I never had the opportunity to see Zepplin LIVE, so I jumped at the opportunity to see this show at the theater. It was great!
John Bonham's son Jason on the drums did an outstanding job. his energy was incredible.
Robert Plant's voice is still on the money & Jones & Jimmy Page...need I say more?!! Such great musicians. The chemistry on the stage during the performance was great. They appeared to be having a great time. It was just like a LIVE show with the large screen and surround sound and everyone in the theater singing, clapping and applauding. Great experience. I would see it again. Very pleased.

This was almost as good as being at the concert.
It was great to see Led Zeppelin and to listen to their timeless music.
The original Led Zeppelin members (Page, Jones and Plant) show a lot of affection for the drummer (who was the son of an original member), who died several years ago.
That was really nice to see.
The Theatre was very comfortable and the movie time was perfect as it gave me a chance to leave work, eat and get to the Theatre on time. The movie staff came out and introduced the movie (which was a very good personal touch).
I have no complaints even though there were some small difficulties with the projector (in the beginning). However, this was quickly rectified.
The picture and sound was very good and I will look back at this as a wonderful experience.
I will plan to do this again (at the same theatre).

Thoroughly enjoyed this film. To be able to experience Led Zeppelin on the big screen was the next best thing to enjoying a live performance. Saw them in '75 in Los Angeles which was an amazing experience, and was really looking forward to this event, which I did. HOWEVER, the experience at Irvine Spectrum minimized the experience I could have had. As other reviewers stated, the audio and video glitches, not to mention having no audio at all for what seemed to be almost two entire songs held your attention as much as the film itself. Half of my row got up and left. Just when you got into a groove, a glitch would occur that would totally kill the mood. Not sure if this was a Fathom Events or a theater issue, but the experience was enough for me to never go to Irvine Spectrum for a Fathom event. The theatre did hand out movie passes as we left last night, but it doesn't rectify the fact that my experience with a limited engagement film was filled with disruption.
