      Alan Sepinwall HitFix If Crossfire Hurricane doesn't offer much that's new, or tell a spellbinding story along the way, it still vividly captures how they became legends in the first place. Rated: B+ Nov 16, 2012 Full Review Glenn Gamboa Newsday Mick Jagger and Keith Richards aren't afraid to keep it real. Both show some interesting insights into their success, with Jagger revealing how he portrays a different character for each of the band's singles. Rated: B Nov 16, 2012 Full Review Leslie Felperin Variety This tribute to the Rolling Stones offers a blizzard of archive material nimbly sutured together with interviews with the Stones themselves, making this a succinct, officially sanctioned but not necessarily fawning history of the band. Nov 16, 2012 Full Review John Powers NPR's Fresh Air As Crossfire Hurricane reminds us, the Stones were consciously designed to occupy a less reputable place in the pop zeitgeist... They embodied psychic danger, a Dionysian force flirting with all manner of uncontrollable sensuality and violence. May 18, 2018 Full Review Rod Lockwood Toledo Blade If you're expecting a comprehensive chronological cataloging of the Stones and all their exploits, prepare to be sorely disappointed. May 31, 2013 Full Review Rebecca Barry Hill Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) Hammers home [the Stones'] amazing, timeless appeal. Rated: 4/5 Nov 29, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Very good, concise overview of the Stones career..but considering they are still going strong, not as complete as it could have been. Running under 2 hrs, it feels like it could have been more Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member made you like them-can't help think that it was a promotional project-great music and drug days interesting. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Claude H Watched this tonight Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/22/17 Full Review Audience Member It was interesting and informative. They decided to have audio instead of video recordings of interviews, which was nice in an aesthetic way, but it'd have been nice if they'd told us whose voices were whose. It was kind of hard to tell who was doing the voiceover at times Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Its the Rolling Stones. What else can you say? An honest, candid peak at the phenomena and spectacle of most influential rock band in history. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The ultimate Rolling Stones documentary. Captures very vividly their live performances through the years, as well as what making an album was like, plus their private lives. However, don't expect the usual micro-detail stuff, eg no "Mick Jagger was born on..." or the names of their albums and when they were released. In fact, there is very little references to dates. No, the main idea is to get a feel for the chain of events that was the career of the Rolling Stones, and what it was like being the members of the great band. For these reasons, it probably helps being a fan with a decent knowledge of the Stones' albums and songs. Not essential though - one can always fill in the gaps by reading Wikipedia. The live stuff is great, and some of it is quite rare. The behind-the-scenes stuff contains some particularly rare footage. A must-see for any fan of rock 'n roll.
