Critic Reviews for End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones
A deliriously musical portrait of a band that became famous and legendary without the headlining stardom that usually accompanies that.
A comprehensive look at the punk pioneers that never wears out its welcome.
The revelations may even deepen your appreciation for the music -- it's incredible that so much dumb fun was generated out of such pain.
A film that does a fine job explaining their importance without airbrushing their foibles.
A satisfying, straightforward documentary with great archive footage and interviews with band members ... and those they influenced.
Audience Reviews for End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones
A four star from a man who hates movies about bands? Yes indeed because it is the Ramones we are talking about. I was curious going in and hooked throughout. A nice job.
A genuinely raw & honest look at a band that paved the way, but deserved so much more. Really uncomfortable at times, thanks to Johnny. Where a lot of band docs mask truths, this one is an open book. Scabs & all. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Terrific rock'n'roll documentary but goddamn is it depressing. Honestly, just put on Ramonesmania again. God, it sucks growing up and seeing your favorite group as less than superheroic. Joe Strummer FTW describing why the Ramones played short songs so fast: "It's a busy world, man, give it to me, I got things to do!"
