Critic Reviews for U2: Rattle and Hum

All Critics (13)

With some hard-hearted editing this might have ended up being one of the finest concert films ever, but as a feature film Rattle and Hum ends up a failure.

October 9, 2016 | Full Review…

Among the best concert films ever.

December 14, 2006 | Rating: 4/5

Nicely shot if not terribly innovative concert film.

December 14, 2004 | Rating: 4/5

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.

January 24, 2004 | Rating: 2.5 | Full Review…

Unsatisfying, humorless documentary on the stalwart Irish band

September 26, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

Awfully preachy for a rock movie, but still has some great tunes.

Audience Reviews for U2: Rattle and Hum

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

This is fabulous. Beautifully recorded. With or Without You and it's subtle amazing colors brings me to my knees every single time without fail. I love their commentary, love the renditions. I watch this on my iPod before bed quite often. Never fails to make me happy.
