Not many bands get a second chance and new lease on life, but this music documentary tells the story of the legendary rock band Journey and how they successfully replaced a much loved singer with an unknown International frontman and experienced a rare rock and roll rebirth.
Cool doc for Journey fans - but that might be about it. The rags to riches story is great but only goes so far and wears thin midway through.
Amazing modern day Horatio Alger story about Arnel Pineda, a Philippinno man who was pulled from obscurity to become the new lead signer for the band Journey. Besides simply getting to see lots of great concert footage of a great band, along with a well told backstory of the band, the star of this film is Pineda and his story. Pineda grew up as a homeless youth in the Philippines singing in a band with his friends to make ends meet, among other things. As an adult, he was still no longer homeless, but still living a very impoverished life, when Neal Schon of Journey happened upon a YouTube video of Pineda and his band performing covers of Journey songs and was blown away. Pineda is a true talent and this film presents the amazing story of his dreams coming true, as much to his delight the band, and to millions of fans across the globe.
This was just ok. I was actually looking forward to this one, but for some odd reason, I just couldnt connect to any of the people here. Even with Arnel's homecoming, it just felt blah. Better editing, more showcasing the songs would have helped.
A really good insight into fame
Good story. Not a fan of the band but it's hard to not cheer for Pineda.
Interesting documentary of a legendary rock band finding their new lead singer on YouTube. At the very least it made me want to buy Journey's Greatest Hits on iTunes.
The movie reminds me of the band. What it lacks in depth, it makes up for in finely crafted joy. Loved it.
Excellent documentary about dreams coming true!
Journey fans can't miss this one. Fascinating story of Arnel Pineda, dead-ringer vocally for Steve Perry (and perhaps even better), who gets plucked out of hopeless poverty in the Phillippines to become the lead singer of Journey. Remarkable as that is, Pineda manages to stay grounded and keep a perspective that is rare, especially in the drugs, sex and rock-and-roll world.
