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.

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.

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