FLIGHT 666: MOVIE REVIEW

April 21st Maiden Day!!!


This movie was something every fan of Maiden or metal should see! It showed the band flying all over the world(Via: Mumbai, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Costa Rica, Mexico City, Bogota, Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Puerto Rico, New York & Toronto) to their concerts in their Ed Force One 757 Jet with singer Bruce Dickenson piloting the plane. This documentary by metal director Sam Dunn( Metal: A Headbangers Journey) takes you backstage and beyond as the band fly's all around the world to screaming fans everywhere. I especially loved the Latin America parts because the fans are getting a once in a lifetime chance to see their metal hero's live even though its overly secure by their countries military. The kids are enthusiastic and emotional and its wonderful to see that metal is still alive in these countries. The best scene to me was the man who obviously caught a Nicko McBain drumstick and he was in tears and thanking God. Another funny scene was the guy in South America who has formed a religion based on Maidens lyrics and has over a hundred Maiden Tats! He has an insane twinkle in his eye as he talks about his religion. The live scene's are like you are seeing the show front and center(if your at the theater for this) and everyone around me was singing along to the "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and "The Trooper" and all the rest. It was a totally fun experience going to see this at the theater. The DVD wont be able to catch what an experience it was watching it at the theater. I did pre-order the DVD that will be out June 9th!! Definately a must have for all Maiden fans!!
This is an incredible movie that is a must see for all Maiden fans or fans of metal period!!!
