The documentary is worth buying for the low price, although it could have been so much better. At least half of this is stuff you've all heard before a gazillion times. The saving grace for this is the fact that the footage and filming is done very well and gives you new and different glimpses of Ozzy and the quality is excellent as well, which makes alot of the recent/older stuff obsolete. Also included is interviews with Ozzy's 1st marriage children, along with Amiee, the daughter who stayed out of the "Osbournes" reality stuff.
However, there were some glaring misses as well, such as :
1. I wish the Randy Rhoads discussion would have been longer and that there would have been more talk about circumstances surrounding the fateful day in 1982 that he died.
2. Not one mention of Jake E. Lee. How can someone that was your lead guitarist right in the heart of your career (1983-1987) be completely ignored. His contributions are noteworthy and they should have been gracious and included what he did for the band, etc, etc.
3. Zakk Wylde. Man, the guy's been a part of the band for over 20 years and they barely show him for about one minute and again, no talk of his importance to the band. A huge miss. I understand the movie's about Ozzy, but Zakk's a big part of that band image and wrote a bunch of the music that Ozzy and his family profited big-time from.
4. In fact, not much of anything about past band members such as the late Randy Castillo. A discussion about him would have been a great addition to this movie, he was instrumental to Ozzy at the time. And it goes w/out saying, it's a crime to banish Lee Kerslake and the great Bob Daisley from any of this. Differences should have been set aside. And nothing from Tommy Aldridge? Don Airey?
5. Not enough discussion of the Ozzfest years and the launching opportunities of up and coming bands. From '97 to 2006, the Ozzfest was a huge part of everything rock. Basically a passing mention on here.
To summarize, Ozzy the person is this film, but the band/music, while discussed, is mostly absent. The older "Don't Blame Me" and "Behind the Music" stories cover that a little better, but are quite dated at this point.
Also, i expected much more in "bonus" features. Again, very little here.
A good effort, but a big miss at the same time. The most accurate reading i can come up with is 2.5 stars.
