Movie Info

The efforts of one tireless concert promoter reuniting legendary hip-hop outfit the Wu-Tang Clan for one final farewell concert form the central story of filmmaker Denis Henry Hennelly's look at the events that led up to the group's historical performance at the Rock the Bells Music Festival. From luring the disagreeable Ol' Dirty Bastard from the comforts of his hotel room to the desperate attempts to calm the swelling crowd, this documentary offers a compelling look at one of hip-hop's most creative and influential acts.

Critic Reviews for Rock the Bells

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (11)

Rock the Bells deals with the mechanics of how to pull off a concert, not with what brought Wu-Tang Clan together or split them up. The impressive teamwork of the promoters upstages the egos of hip-hop divos and their rampaging fans.

A flat-out stunner that combines a celebration of hip-hop culture with a disaster film.

Jun 28, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Humorously, but with knuckles bared, captures every twitch of angst, chaos and near-calamity that unfolds as the concert draws near and Weisberg's dream devolves into a nightmare.

Rock the Bells is stressful to watch, but its entertaining stage performances and document of people under pressure should interest even non-rap fans.

May 4, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Rock the Bells [ends] on a high note, but in a minor chord of sadness.

For connoisseurs of stories of show business near-disasters, Bells is compelling viewing.
