Critic Reviews for U2: Rattle and Hum
Among the best concert films ever.
Nicely shot if not terribly innovative concert film.
R&H exists as it does simply because U2 had “planned” too much ahead of time, the antithesis of spontaneity and the killjoy of documentary filmmaking.
Unsatisfying, humorless documentary on the stalwart Irish band
Awfully preachy for a rock movie, but still has some great tunes.
They're the biggest band in the world; you'd think they'd at least have something interesting to say.
Audience Reviews for U2: Rattle and Hum
One of U2's most underappreciated albums from the band's golden era, unfortunately, is also U2 at its most unbearably preachy and self-absorbed. The film doesn't reinvent the concert-doc wheel, but it does offer a wealth of awesome movie and an interesting insight into U2's "Joshua Tree" to "Achtung Baby" transition period. A must-see for U2 fans.
I remember watching this film in the theater. Quite good concert film and about their kickass album The Joshua Tree.
I love U2.Since the 80´s till now they still original and good!This movie(made for theaters) was filmed by the great director Phil Joanou in part in glorious black and white, and in the end, some shots in colour, like a revelation.Not only a documentary of a tour, this movie takes a snapshot of th Joshua Tree era.I
