It's not as long as the first Gorillaz album (weighing in at 80 minutes), and doesn't even contain much of the original material (unless you count the 'Popular' track), but in the same way as the first album it gives a concise history of the band, the state of the world, and the evolution of their songwriting. It is a great introduction to the band, and if you've seen the first Gorillaz record, the first half hour is not so different. The band go into 'popular' mode again, and they do it very well. Gorillaz live in a more laid back manner, and they are a more like a traditional rock band. This is a great and complete 'band of the moment', but there are a lot of fans out there who didn't know the music of the band, or even cared to know what the band was doing. My recommendation, watch the first album first, then watch the 'Pump Up the Volume' or 'Feel Good Inc' video. Otherwise, I feel the next 'album' would be a disappointment.

After seeing many festival interviews on this movie, I was really excited to see it, and I thought it was a really good movie. The story is really good and I really enjoyed the energy they had. All the songs are really good and the visuals were fantastic. The theme of the movie is a metaphor of the illusion of the human condition and what we see is a reflection of what we think. The whole story is really very interesting and I think it is one of the best movies of the year. I really liked it a lot and would recommend it to anyone that likes music and/or cinema. Definitely one of the best movies of the year.

I went into this film with low expectations as I am not a big fan of the band and their music. I thought I'd see a video montage that's to do with one song (e.g. "When I say I love you" from "Sonic Highways") and a trailer about their upcoming tour. I was wrong. This is actually a series of performances by the band in support of their new album. I would definitely say this is one of their best records. The movie covers most of their main songs, as well as a lot of their lesser known songs. The first half of the film covers their legendary "2 plus 2" tour, and their last performance before the release of "Fat Bottomed Girls" The second half covers their "Metal Resistance Tour", a few of their lesser known songs, and a few of their other songs. I'd recommend this movie to fans of the band, and anyone who is interested in the music. Recommended for fans of hip hop and music. 7/10

Being a big fan of the Band I would have expected them to use their strengths as well as expand their discography. Instead, what we get is a typical video-game-styled video where the music is on a loop while some of the interviews are useless and the stage performances are over-done and less entertaining than I would have liked. Many of the interviews are very insulting, and the interviews with the main three are not very informative. However, the true performers here are the GZA, Big Boi, and J Dilla. The lyrics and music are great, and their appreciation for the art of songwriting and performance is a valuable lesson in the history of music. The only thing I would have changed is to have a little more video of the GZA and Big Boi. Overall, a great video but an odd and not very informative video.

This movie is about the making of The Fall Of '62, a collaboration between Gorillaz and the Black Keys. This is an entertaining and funny documentary about the origins of The Fall Of '62. I watched this movie once and was a bit disappointed. It was too long and I felt that it focused too much on the band. I was really looking forward to the next part but I didn't see it coming. That's why I was a bit disappointed with the end of this movie. The band is pretty much main focus and they have to play their music in this movie. I have to say that I did enjoy the beginning of the movie. It was pretty interesting. I thought that the Black Keys played some of their music and I was impressed by that. I thought that the documentary was quite interesting. I can't really say that I didn't like the movie. It's pretty entertaining but it's not the best documentary I have seen. I think that it's good for a summer movie or something but I wouldn't pay to see it.

Watching the video in my office and being completely immersed into the music was mesmerizing. I think the audience of "Young Gorillaz" will be the same. Despite the absurdity of the premise, the videos are spot on. From the funny interviews with Damon Albarn and on, the music is a huge draw. I could not even comprehend it after the first hour. However, it gets really hot. The intermission in the first hour is about the least interesting part of the film. A lot of stuff is happening. All that is left to do is to wonder what happened. Why did Damon Albarn's character bring down the band? Who is this woman and why did she start acting strange? What is her connection with this guy? But it's really cool to have a choice in the last hour of the film. It is a pure and uncompromised documentary on this band that never strays from the lyrics and the concept. It's also a new type of documentary. We are not bombarded by visuals and pop songs, but there is a rhythm to the music that is quite boring and usually tries to be cool. But that is not the case here. So if you love music, you will love this movie. If you don't, don't worry, it won't stop you from watching this film.
