    Nothing new for this die hard fan.

    I am a bit disappointed in this release. As a long time Alice fan I have been waiting for months for this release and sadly it didnt match up to the pre release hype. The lack of founding members such as Michael Bruce having input takes away from more revealing infomation about the band starting up and the early days before Alice Cooper became a person rather than a band. I love all the previous Banger Films releases but this one took the easy way out, didnt dispel rumours but intead fueled some events like the chicken incident. 3 stars is being generous because I like the music. I would recommend to casual fans because it would be entertaining but if you are a Cooper die hard then there is nothing new here.

    Been an Alice Cooper fan for awhile now, there have been several documentaries about Alice, the band and the man in the past, but this one if one of the more interesting ones. For the most part the documentary is about Alice Cooper the man. It talks about the band, but for most part it's about how Vince Fournier became a man named Alice. Done with animations and voice overs it contains rare footage and clips. It also digs a bit deeper into his decline in the late 70's, previous docs seem to have glossed over this point. A fun doc for long time fans, and a great intro for new ones.

    So much ground to cover in under 90 minutes

    This seems to be an offshoot of VH1's "Metal: Evolution," one of the few non-reality/tabloid programs left on that channel. Fans of that show (like me) will enjoy "Super Duper...", but, in the latter, there is less about music itself. The focus is more biographical, exploring the "Alice" stage character as a real-life Jekyll & Hyde. I was hoping to learn more about Cooper classics that get little or no radio play: "Desperado," "Billion Dollar Babies," "Dead Babies," etc. But you can only do so much in 90 minutes, even while the film chooses to conclude in the mid-Eighties.

    Good Documentary but lacks any actual interviews

    I went into this purchase excited because Alice Cooper has always been an interesting figure in rock music. Unfortunately, unlike the previous Rush documentary that Banger Films produced, this documentary is mainly audio interviews behind archive pictures. There is little to no actual concert footage or actual interview footage of the person speaking. It was entertaining enough, but could have been better had they presented the material in a different way.

    One of the most entertaining Rock Docs I've ever seen & narrated by the band members, this journey thru the birth of the band from High School when they were The Earwigs to the crazy 70's success & excess to a solo Alice rise & fall & rise again, this covers it all! Rare photos & video footage & of course the music, this BluRay made me love the band even more. Lots of cool extras too. Check it out, remember the Coop!

    Great Approach In Documentation

    Great stuff. No one person is dominant in this film. Michael Bruce is left out of the film, no mention of him at all. This is strange and must be a personal conflict or denial by Brucel of his name being mentioned, though he was the key member of The Alice Cooper Band. I wanted to hate the doc for this reason, but it's too good otherwise to resent the fact of the lack of Bruce. Strange.

    This us a really great documentary. It is similar to a special on vh1 or something like that. I would recommend it to alice cooper fans. The only complaint I have would be that I would have liked it to go a bit more in depth especially on the later 80s era and albums . So much more that could've have been said .

    Love everything else these guys have put out but this one is not as good as their others. Although it's still good. I don't like that you never see the person being interviewed, you only see old footage and pics. Still I liked it more as time went on and it's better than much of the other stuff out there.
