    Loved this movie! I saw it at an Imax Theater which gave it more impact. Showed Keith Richards vulnerable side. "She was Hot" got me all fired up. Buddy Guy was just amazing!

    Did not go in with expecting much. What are you going to show me that I haven't seen before ? Thankfully, I was caught off guard in a good way. I was taken out of my seat by force and pushed up on stage with the old guys turned young again. They made me young again ! Keith Richards is exposed as the genius that he is . Move over Godfather, Mick Jagger is the hardest working man in show business. Martin, you are a visionary magic man. Can't wait to see it again. Thanks for the explosion of raw talent meets in your face rock 'n roll.MORE ! MORE ! ! !
