Critic Reviews for Lambert & Stamp

All Critics (74) | Top Critics (35)

The film does go on at least 20 minutes too long and requires the viewer to take The Who's laughable excesses - notably the vainglorious Tommy - more seriously than they deserve.

Opens the window on a pivotal time in 1960s (and early 1970s) pop culture.

Lambert and Stamp are at least a bit fascinating, or at least somewhat interesting. But this film runs nearly two hours. They are at best an hour-and-a-half's worth of interesting.

Lambert & Stamp is at its best when it chronicles the high-wire act of the band's early years, as the pair guided the band through ever-greater levels of success.
