This vibrant documentary follows concert promoter Chang Weisberg and his Guerilla Union promotion team as they work furiously to ensure that what would turn out to be the last performance of notorious no-shows the Wu-Tang Clan actually takes place. Weisberg puts everything on the line to achieve the seemingly impossible: reuniting the 10 members of the Grammy-winning Wu-Tang Clan, including Method Man ("Garden State," TV's "The Wire"), RZA (composer for "Blade: Trinity" and "Kill Bill" vols. 1 and 2), and founding member, the late Ol' Dirty Bastard to perform at the 2004 "Rock the Bells" hip-hop concert. As if each Wu-Tang member is not difficult enough to work with, the venue's incompetent security, malfunctioning equipment, and riotous crowd all work in tandem to try keeping the history making show from going on. But Weisberg and his team come through to deliver a concert, and a Wu-Tang Clan performance, of a lifetime! Also featuring performances by Redman, Dilated Peoples, MC Supernatural, Sage Francis, Eyedea & Abilities, and more!moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    A fascinating glimpse of a dreamer and a music culture that has always depended on dreams.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    Stressful to watch, but its entertaining stage performances and document of people under pressure should interest even non-rap fans.

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    At several points, Chang is the only thing standing between his event and total chaos, as frustrated ticket-holders rush the gates.
