This movie truly shows an insight into U2's state of mind- and their state of creation. Their highly marketable gospel and blues mixture has sold millions of records. This concert film shows that although U2's sound (excluding Boy) can come off as pop... that's NOT what they are. Perhaps the most inspirational part of the whole movie is when they record "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" with a gospel choir from Harlem. After that comes the closing speech, Bono's famed "F*ck The Revolution" speech. It also contains the rare sight of Bono spraypainting Embacardo, which gained him hefty fees. The outcome of these sights is the overall feeling that although U2 has been criticized for being commercially safe and a group of sell outs, they do have completely true intentions. There are only three downsides for this whole film: it's slightly grainy due to the lack of technology to successfully reproduce it, it's lacking some of the "interview" material that is so talked about... and many songs from it aren't known to listeners of the pre '88 era. However, the Rattle and Hum album shows a side for U2- one that should be enough to change anyone's mind about "Achtung Baby".

This rock-docu is an absolute must for any U2 fan (or anyone interested in the rock docu's)! Enjoyed every minute of is (except the manner in which Adam is treated throughout, but that's just a personal objection). Other than the latter, it is a wonderful piece that captures the last tour before U2 re-invented themselves (which they continue to do).
