3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not brilliant, there are better Lemmy documentaries out there, 27 Feb. 2011

This review is from: Lemmy [DVD] (DVD)
I was really looking forward to this film and I must say, I'm a little disappointed by it.

I think it lingers too much on Lemmy's LA lifestyle and doesn't really explore his music enough.

For instance, a large section of the documentary features Lemmy in his LA flat, talking about his trinkets as well as various life stories.

But most of these have been told extensively elsewhere and in other films about Lemmy, so there's not really much new.

What I was hoping for was seeing more of Lemmy in the studio, learning more about Lemmy writing music etc etc.

We also don't see nearly enough of Lemmy on the road.

There are some big name interviewees, that's for sure. Dave Grohl is excellent, but many of the others don't get as much air time as I'd expect.

Fast Eddie Clarke is the best of those interviewed but there's one glaring ommission: Phil 'Philthy Animal' Taylor.

For whatever reason he isn't interviewed and that's a great shame.

For my money there are better documentaries out there, 'like Live Fast, Die Old' made by the UK's Channel 4.

The BBC's Classic Albums series episode 'Motorhead - Ace of Spades' also covers much of the ground in this documentary but with much better humour.

Still, the Lemmy movie has a heap of good extras which fans will like.

I just feel this is a bit a of missed opportunity.
