Audience Reviews for Inside Led Zeppelin: A Critical Review - 1968-1972

Inside Led Zeppelin is a too short retrospective look at the legendary band. For fans of the band, they'll want something much more in depth considering the iconic nature of the band. The film offers little in depth content of the band, and it's vague in nature because it never goes fully in detail in specific periods of the band. I liked this one, but I also wanted a bit more as well. If you want a thorough documentary about the band, you'll be disappointed as this one has a short run time, and never really goes fully into the history of the band. I think that a more thorough film should be made on Led Zeppelin and they certainly deserve it, but this one was simply stitched together to create some form of film to cash in on the fame of the band. Overall, a good little short, but it is not the complete history of the band, and it leaves diehard fans wanting much more. Inside Led Zeppelin serves more as a type of film that can wet your appetite for the band, and it succeeds at doing so, but it also frustrates fans because it lacks a significant portrait of the band. Eventually, a stellar documentary about the band should be made and this band, considering its contribution to music, deserves a proper documentary. This is a review of their career, nothing more, and it should be seen strictly by the Zeppelin completists, and even then, they'll surely be disappointed because the material presented here is nothing new and it's something that every fan already know. Hopefully a film will surely surface that manages to not only tell the band's story, but also critiques the band's most legendary works. As it is, Inside Led Zeppelin really doesn't bring to light new information and is an analysis of the band, which is good, but is disappointing at the same for viewers wanting more.
