The tone is too reverential, yet it keeps a pleasant rhythm.

It's kind of interesting to watch Opie hang with Jay-Z and Eddie Vedder, but it doesn't really add value to anyone's image. It just feels like we've been given backstage access to a big show and we're being chaperoned every second.

While music doesn't take a back seat, it's more of a passenger than a driver. It feels like nonstop music without the generic concert format. But you learn or intuit something in the process.

Have you long dreamed of watching Skrillex explain his process to Ron Howard? Then "Made in America" was made for you. Otherwise?

While it doesn't make great use of its Opie-meets-Hova potential, the line-up is impressively diverse enough to satisfy music fans.

Bombastic and pedestrian at the same time.

The unlikely team-up of rapper/businessman Jay Z and filmmaker Ron Howard doesn't result in odd-couple fireworks. Try familiar yawns instead.

Doesn't have the screentime to truly address the nation's woes, but it manages to capture despondency and a building sense of hope through the unification of sound.

A feature-length commercial for the Jay-Z brand.

Made In America is an all-too-accurate reflection of the safe, boring, middle-aged politician Jay-Z has become.

Not quite a concert documentary, cluttered, but an interesting primer on the state of music circa 2012

Made In America's ode to opportunity and achievement begs for a deeper reality check.

Less music-stuffed but more conceptually ambitious than the average music doc.

What could have been a spirited dissection of Jay-Z's optimistic enterprise is instead merely an advertisement for it.

It's a bit too self-congratulatory but does highlight the enormity and impact of staging such a huge event.

Less than fully satisfying as a conventional performance cavalcade, but sustains considerable interest as a behind-the-scenes overview of a musically and culturally diverse event.

The sentiment is pure, and the assemblage of talent is indeed interesting. What's promising on a cinematic front are the great documentary moments.
