As documentaries go, Bang! is fairly by the numbers but comes to life when the artists that performed for Berns share their stories on this eccentric and unique figure.

Bang! The Bert Berns Story isn't one of the more essential boomer-nostalgia docs, but it hits the target more often than not.
May 10, 2017
The story itself is arresting, and if that's all "Bang" offered, that would be enough. But "Bang" does more.

Bang! is brimming with anecdotes from the people who knew Berns best. Bert Berns may not be a household name, but once you see this documentary you won't listen to his songs without thinking of the man behind those chart-toppers.

[The] impressive lineup of interview subjects properly tells the story of a man whose contributions to popular music have been largely unheralded.
April 28, 2017
It has a ton of heart and a bevy of interesting interviewees who paint a clear and coherent picture of who Bert Berns was inside and outside of the music biz... It's a must see for any fan, new or old.

The documentary may not have widespread appeal, but should engross viewers who know the songs but not the man behind them.
April 27, 2017
Entertaining documentary about a very talented and unheralded 1960s songwriter.

April 26, 2017
Blending stock footage, vintage audio, re-creation, and many testimonials from heavy hitters from Ben E. King to Van Morrison, Berns' son Brett keeps things visually lively ...
April 26, 2017
Affectionate but still eye-opening look at songwriter and producer Bert Berns and his impact on 1960s rock music.
April 25, 2017
If you love the music Berns made, you'll love this movie; if you don't, I feel for you, but "Bang!" might nevertheless entertain with its dish.
April 24, 2017
A thorough, warts-and-all remembrance of a nearly forgotten giant of '60s pop, rock and soul.
