Wow, that was 100 minutes of fun. Great picture, great sound. The attack scene nearly brought the roof down. My wife and mother-in-law were two floors up and thought the house was being bombed. I sure wish I had had the ability to record that one. Great work HBO.

Great show. Was afraid HBO might put their slant on it but it was pretty

straight forward. Great picture and sound.

It was so good that I wanted it to keep going as it ended. I watched all the credits because I did not want to leave the emotional atmosphere is created.


After 45 minutes I am still emotionally up and thinking about it.


What a great show!!

Excellent movie!


I could not leave my seat once it started, even though I was dying of thirst, I just did not want to miss anything. By far one of the best movies if not THE best movie HBO has done.


For some additional reading, take a look at the artist interviews here http://www.hbo.com/films/livefrombag...eat_main_title it is very interesting.

Agreed.... very good movie. Michael Keaton was great, as was the guy who played Peter Arnett. Excellent PQ, also!

I agree. Except for them dragging out that false propaganda about the incubators, it was a very well produced film.


The anti-aircraft fire scenes were an amazing experience.

The sound production was one of the best HBO has done yet. I'm glad I had my new subwoofer speakers done and had to crank back my 1KW Butt kicker as it was really bouncing me out of my seat during the bombing. Got a nice recording of it and watched it a second time.

Of course you might recognize the man who played Perter Arnett as D-Day, from one of the greatest movies of all time Animal House.:D

Saw this last night and loved it. KEaton was great as the lead role. Very enjoyable and was nice to go back and reflect on the war. I did have a hard time with Peter Arnett being that charismatic and energenic in this movie and then turning on HDNet World Report to see him so relaxed and calm.


Other than that a very enjoyable movie.
