Great music but cinematography needed some work

RUSH performed beautifully as they always do and the orchestra enhanced the show for the Clockwork Angels songs. The two things that I thought could have been improved on were that the volume on the orchestra could not compete with Alex's guitar and got washed out by it and the cinematography was too choppy. There were too many camera cuts and they came too fast. It was annoying. The extra behind the scenes material at the end of the performance was a nice addition and I enjoyed the interviews with the band and the orchestra performers. The Gnomes were funny, especially the two at the end of the movie.

Rush is amazing and deserves better

The video was a very typical concert video and not at all what I expected. It was poorly edited and very distracting instead of enhancing the experience. Having seen Rush a few times over the years I can tell you that you are always in awe of seeing them live. That was not captured in this video at all. In fact it did the exact opposite. Most of it appeared to have been shot with an old iPhone (shaky and grainy image) then spliced together with very predictable and average shots from "professional" cameras. The result was inconsistent and really didn't make this video special at all. A real shame as I said because if they had done it right and captured the amazing skill and magic of a live Rush concert it would have been amazing in the Imax format...they really missed the mark. Rush will always be amazing but this video was only average.

Excellent concert footage and pre and post interviews and skits. The only thing was that in my theatre there were a couple of delays in the video. I found that this movie was streamed to the theatre.

Better than being there!

There were times when I felt I actually was sitting in the concert hall...then the camera would zoom in on Alex or Geddy's fret board or Neil's drum kit and it got even better than a concert can be. The sound quality and the camera work is outstanding, and the after-show was nice as well. I would advise any Rush fan to see this on the big screen. Rush added a string section to excellent effect, and you really get the most out of it in this film. I added my theatre ticket stubs in with my Rush concert tickets from '81 and '83 as part of the same collection!

Turns out they didn't play the first set in Tysons Corner, VA

I went to Tysons Corner showing, and they only played the last set at the show there. Apparently, the first set contained more older songs, and I was really looking forward to hearing those.
