This parade of admiration is almost as exhausting as the experience of a Motörhead concert

A bitchingly awesome doc that suggests its fantastic title isn't even true.

This 65-year-old gentleman with the distinctive facial hair and penchant for Nazi memorabilia is not only a certifiable rock god, he's also one of the most thoughtful fellas you'll ever find grinding our mega-decibels on a bass guitar.

For the most part, Olliver and Orshoski are smart enough to allow Lemmy's unique personality to come to them, as opposed to pushing a case for it.

It's a quietly witty film, much like the dude himself.

One of the most thorough and entertaining rock & roll documentaries since Ondi Timoner's Dig!

A diverting if hagiographic documentary with an unprintable subtitle.

Fun for fans and a healthy primer for those previously unaware, the film's overall air of fawning worship makes it feel softer than befits such a gruff, roguish figure.

Most rock stars probably wouldn't appreciate a documentary that exploits their personality for laughs, but the great thing about Lemmy is that he's in on the joke.

Lemmy gives the filmmakers enough time and candid access to create a profile of the man that goes deeper than just the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll - even though in Lemmy's case, there's enough of a surplus of all three to power multiple documentaries.

An entertaining portrait of a seemingly indestructible figure (he was born in 1945) still treading the boards night after night.

Enjoyable documentary that should appeal to metalheads and non-metalheads alike, with Lemmy proving an engaging and likeable subject...

Stuffed to the brim with compliments from tattooed rock stars as well as fascinating insights into musical technique and even how boots are made from his own designs...

Irony rears its head offstage in this wag the dog approach to reverential moviemaking. And for those who aren't into Lemmy or haven't a clue, there's a very different movie, however unintentional, to peculiarly savor.

Devotees of Lemmy Kilmister will be in heaven watching this gushing love letter to the man who straddles rock subgenres, but anyone who's not already a fan will cry for mercy long before the nearly two-hour film ends.
