By no means am I a fan of The Who, but I do enjoy them in very small servings. The first major portion is good enough, covering their roots, profiling every band member from Keef to Pete to John to Roger, and plus we get to see Pete Townshend practically doing autofellatio. Oddly enough they only spend about 2 minutes on the more theatrically destructive aspects of their live act, with no mention of Cincinnati or that one time Keith's drum blew up on TV. Hmmmm

The last segment or so captures a reunited Who (minus John and Keith, obviously) recording a song called "Real Good Looking Boy" and it's boooooooorrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnggggggg. And you will hear fragments of this song for the entire 20 minutes, so hopefully you will love it (you won't). Naturally it's Pete and Roger loving themselves and there's just something terribly self-indulgent about it. It kinda ruins the rest of the documentary, which was already pretty sub-par anyway.

Hyper not just in the clips of The Who (not the Two) but a little bolic from the interviews although Pete and Roger never go into the ego side of themselves. Keith John will be missed and him and John just make you pissed at the guys who tried to replace them (as mi abuelo put it, "This last part is bullshit.") Which it very much so is due to the nature that what The Who did as four people was natural and cannot be created if one of the bumpers can't spin. It's tilt at the end but when you see what was and still is in this shortsweetlittlebig documentary it is super music and super Mockin' Fuzz for all time in a GOOD NOISE type of way.

You put Roger Daltrey in anything and I will watch it-I am a HUGE WHO fan and love their music this was reallly good UNFORTUNATELY the last 40 minutes revolved around Pete's horrific song "Good looking Boy"which when it is on Serius I literally have to change the chaneel regardles, this had some great never before seen footage that was really cool. LONG LIVE JOHN ENTWISTLE

It is a shame for younger generations to only know them as the band that made theme songs for the CSI franchise while on the other side, they're the best rock n' roll band ever, period. This rockumentary comes with 2 films pack (The Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who & The Amazing Journey: 6 Quick Ones) and pretty much covers it all, from the band's beginnings through their sky-rocket to fame, unreleased concerts footage and all the up's an down's in between. It is a 2 hours orgasmic experience for me, and will be for any The Who devotees, owh and Noel Gallagher can suck his own cock and eat his own shit, who the fuck he think he is? Ignorant cunt! Highly recommend!

I have seen this on FOXTEL in Oz and it's ...a great insight into the personal and maturing musical struggles and emotional demons that have troubled this tight-knit band of musical souls ...from 'our generation'! :-)

The documentary puts a solid focus on Keith Moon's and John Entwhistle's founding contributions ...that still endure despite the passing of many years.

That fact that The Who is still touring is a great legacy to their fire ...mixed with Pete & Roger's talent and showmanship. :-R

The Who is one of the four major founders of rock and roll, and this film is flawless. Amazing interviews and excellent footage is only a taste- this Rockumentary is amazing.

Great documentary on one of rock's most influential bands. Includes interviews with band members and personnel, and artists who have been influenced by The Who. Also contains some fantastic concert footage, some it it pretty rare.

disapointing given all the hype

a great story of the life and hardships of the who. I love how they would focus on one thing at a time, and how they separatly did the john, keith, pete and roger and asked many people from newer bands like pearl jam to give what they remember from the who.

Being a big Who fan I love anything to do with them...and this didn't disapoint. Fasinating insight into what is..the Amazing Journey of The Who.

Amazing band. Great background on the group and its beginning. The film does a great job of spotlighting each member and their unique style.

Absolutely top draw rockumentary of the 'oo. Contributions by all the surviving members and people involved give you a real insight into the band and what made/makes them tick. A must see for all who fans.
