I've seen the film twice now and was just blown away by the band's live performance in NYC. As a life long fan of heavy metal and a musician trying to make it in this world, not a day will go by from now on that i won't be listening to Anvil for inspiration, hope, and for a smile.

The director, Sacha Gervasi, is a fan first and a documentarian second. If Anvil! has a flaw, it's that it's too enthusiastic, a reverently uncritical valentine to the director's adolescent heroes. Full Review
Well-shot and edited, Anvil! is an underdog saga even non-metalheads will root for. It tows that fine line between chuckling at its protags' somewhat absurd situation and celebrating their sheer unwillingness to give up. Full Review
