Plenty for fans to enjoy here, but the uninitiated who are looking for a good yarn may be left wanting.

It somehow manages to communicate what the star never quite managed to convey himself - his journey from a humble upbringing in Modena to a globally famous artist with a passion for food, family and women.

As a record of his warmth and charm, it works nicely: it has abundant footage and top-tier interviewees, including family members.

Those who want their image of Pavarotti left intact will enjoy the film; others will feel that a chance to put the record straight has been evaded.

What a dull nostalgiafest.

It was a heck of a life and Howard traces it reverently.

The film confirms but doesn't much augment what we already know.

See it, if for no other reason than to learn the significance of his characteristic white hankie.

A standard documentary about a famous person...but oh my gosh the singing is just incredible and I like the way they let the singing go for a long time

"Pavarotti" paints a simple picture of a complicated man, but it hits the high notes: the performances, the cheers, the adulation. Consider it a greatest hits.

Pavarotti falls short of being encyclopedic...but there's enough here to convince us that despite some blips this was a life well lived.

Howard's execution is a little routine - perhaps his idea is to just let the man's greatness speak for itself?

It's an engaging film, filled with vintage snapshots, interviews with friends and former colleagues, and, most of all, that marvelously distinctive voice, with all the emotion it could convey.

This love letter dedicated to opera's biggest rock star, the larger-than-life Luciano Pavarotti, achieves something most documentaries about the deceased rarely do: It brings a man back to glorious life.

What's most compelling in "Pavarotti" isn't the backstory, but the clips of the singer deploying that amazing voice.

A warm-hearted documentary that not only brings Pavarotti roaring back to life, but also humanizes a figure who in his prime was larger than life itself.
