Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The classic soul that pumps, struts, growls and cries through Only the Strong Survive is so adrenalized that young audiences encountering the music for the first time could easily find themselves converted into old fogies.
Fresh: It gets to you, watching R&B legends such as Sam Moore, Jerry Butler, the Chi-Lites, Carla Thomas and the names above dig deeper into the music they made in the Sixties and Seventies.
Fresh: Worth the time and money some of the summer's effects-driven spectacles probably won't be.
Rotten: A shoddy, borderline incompetent documentary that offers next to no context, a movie in which the performers are lucky if the filmmakers show them performing one song all the way through.
