About the Movie
Rarely can a film penetrate the glamorous surface of rock legends. It Might Get Loud tells the personal stories, in their own words, of three generations of electric guitar virtuosos – The Edge (U2), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), and Jack White (The White Stripes). It reveals how each developed his unique sound and style of playing favorite instruments, guitars both found and invented. Concentrating on the artist's musical rebellion, traveling with him to influential locations, provoking rare discussion as to how and why he writes and plays, this film lets you witness intimate moments and hear new music from each artist. The movie revolves around a day when Jimmy Page, Jack White, and The Edge first met and sat down together to share their stories, teach and play.
This movie really opens up the stories behind the legends. i recommend it to any guitarist looking for inspiration, rock fan or just anyone looking for a good documentary. I would have liked to of seen a few more guitarists on here to be honest (john frusciante +Steve vai), But all in all this movie is great (:
This doco is informative. And entertaining.
Jimmy Page shows off his massive guitar and vinyl collection, but when he plays air guitar to a Link Wray song makes you grin. The edge explains the impact of war that it had on u2, and how much he depends on his effects. I don't know but The Edge to me doesn't deserve to be in this film.
You could not say anything that would damage Jack White. The movies shows just how tough he is, and his humourous side.
It is the best doco in my mind. I am a guitar freak and a music junkie, so maybe that weighs a bit on my opinion.But it is enjoyable. Would of been cool if they used one more muso like Josh Homme but it turned out to be a pretty good jam.
As a guitarist and Zep fan of 20 years I was excited when this film was released but unfortunately it fails to deliver. What could have been every guitar players idea of heaven turned into a boring and lacklustre affair. Jimmy Page is the only person worthy in this film, the Edge is out of his league, Jack White is arrogant and dull. I think the film needed more actual guitar legends such as David Gilmour for instance.
