Reviews and Problems with Iron Maiden: Flight 666 - The Film
Showing 1-10 of 35
Movie overall 9
5.1 audio mix is disappointing
15 October 2013
Excerpt: this is a great blu ray. great concept with the documentary and the songs from different shows. maiden is incredible but the mix on the dts-hd 5.1 audio is not good. the crowd noise drowns out the band. in some songs, bruce is barely audible. the mix on the en vivo disc is much better but if your a fan of this great band, you already own this.
Summary: An incredible Iron Maiden backstage pass! For fans, non-fans and devil-worshipers alike. IRON MAIDEN FLIGHT 666 is not just onstage footage coupled with staged interviews. It is backstage, onstage, offstage and everything in between, settling in comfortably with heavy metal band Iron Maiden on their 2008 "Somewhere Back In Time" World Tour, which includes shows in Third World cities rarely visited by a band of their stature, in a personalized Boeing 757 airliner...
Summary: I was checking out what was on TV the other night and found this tucked away after midnight. As a bit of a fan of Iron Maiden, (I've seen them a couple of times over the years) I thought I'd give it a go. What I found really surprised me, a very professional bunch of guys that happen to play some great heavy metal music (IMO). But more of my thoughts later, here's a very brief summary first (summary haters please load the plane while I write the next paragraph).
Summary: A documentary about heavy metal band Iron Maiden's 2008 Somewhere Back In Time world tour, in which the band flew fifty thousand miles around the world in a specially modified Boeing 757, playing twenty-three concerts in forty-five days. I've always admired Iron Maiden and their music very much, for one simple reason.
An amazing "feel good ride" even for non-Maiden fans...

Summary: First off, i was into metal but not that much into Maiden, i always respected them but didn't listen to them very often. When the DVD started at a friend's place during a party i began watching "accidently"... Towards the end of the film i was asked where i was and didn't realize i watched the whole movie and completely forgot the time. Sam Dunn has gone to the next stage, he made a "movie" - which can be enjoyed by anyone, not just metal fans.
Excerpt: This is my 1st Blu Ray Music disc and it's awesome picture and sound quality will impress even the most fussy video/audiofiles. The documentary is well filmed, edited and played out in GLORIOUS High Definition. The blend of story, music and humor throughout is great and it's a pleasure to watch. Go treat yourself and buy this Blu Ray today.
The One Extra, Alone, Is Worth The Price of Admission.

Excerpt: I won't delve too deeply into a PQ discussion, but the shots of the plane in the air rivaled parts of Baraka for PQ splendor. The remainder of the film looked very good, though a VERY few, VERY short in-concert shots from afar look decidely SD. The main point of my review is to say: since the uncut concert footage wasn't a part of the Flight:666 film, I consider it an extra, a darn great one (at nearly two hours), and wholly worth the price of admission for fans.
Excerpt: In 2008, aboard Flight 666 - a.k.a. "Ed Force One", piloted by singer Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden set out on a whirlwind world tour - 45 days, 70,000 km., 13 countries and 23 sold-out shows - to re-introduce classic songs from their catalogue to their newer and very devoted fans. The Blu-ray disc contains a documentary movie and a concert comprised of one song from 16 of the 23 shows. - The concert: Well, whaddaya expect - IT ROCKS!!!
