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

It was AWE SUM. Bonham was key, and he utterly nailed it. Sound and visuals and performance were perfection, with the exception of the tired and over rated Stairway. Best moment: Bass intro to Dazed and Confused...brought the house down. I saw it at the AMC 25 in Times Square, NYC. Plants vocals were surprisingly fresh and clean. Kashmir was EPIC. Jonsey was Johnny on the spot, and Pagey was rockin' and masterful. Best Jason moment: drum solo on Rock and Roll, ending the concert. See This.

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.

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.

The movie/show is great. But theater problems- first the sound started way to low and people had to shout "turn it up" second the film kept skipping/cutting out thur out the movie....Yes I'll buy it on Blue ray and can;t wait to hear it on my sound system.
