      Audience Member Overall, while I don't usually review world tours or rock concerts as a movie lover, I can't deny there's something special about Paul McCartney's Get Back that's worth sharing. Audio and visual buffs will certainly be pleased by this release. The Blu-ray shows impressive audio and visual results considering the tour was from 1989 to 1990. This is an excellent feature for lovers of The Beatles and rock music and is a great release packed with plenty of music and fun.  I loved reliving the many great songs I know will never die, instead living on for many generations. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review jill c I think it helps to have Beatles running in your veins from living in the 60s. It just feels so present day, the filming and the sound are perfection. Then I realise it was 53yrs ago, and became quite weepy at the end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I didn't make it through the first episode, and I rather like the Beatles. For the most dedicated fans only I'd say. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night, HELP!) who came out of retirement to film this tour documentary film. Paul McCartney's first world tour in 13 years, this is a composite mix of many if not all the cities they visited. His wife Linda is on stage to perform along with several others (unknown to me, but might be from his group Wings). Has 22 complete live musical performances of Beatle and solo McCartney hit songs. Filmed before sell out crowds in 45 cities in 13 countries, includes the Guiness book record for the then largest audience ever to see a solo performance (Rio de Janeiro) at 184,368 fans. 92 minutes of well shot and edited concert footage. I didn't care much for all the editing that packed in so many cities during a single song. Dolby stereo in vhs format. Rated PG (why I don't know, but the case says for some material not suited to children). Haven't rewatched this again. The first time was enough with only one Beatle present. Some songs were toyed with, updated or something like that so they weren't faithful to the original songs. Includes lesser known songs from Wings as well. This is not just one concert but many spliced together for each song. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best concert films.
