Most of the music is great, and the setting is fantastic. Minus points only for the CSO, and some of the cheesier editing effects (the endless boxes!). You've got a beautiful and haunting setting - use it. Pink Floyd is so much more than just Dark Side or The Wall... Echoes alone makes this worth the watch.

A great look at Pink Floyd's pre-Dark Side material including the immortal Echose (unfortunately split into 2 parts). The songs are shortened form their regular concert performance lengths, but it doesn't hurt the overall feel. Some interesting visuals, but a lot of mediocre material too (visually). The original film is preferred. The director's cut, while containing some interesting interviews and studio clips, is also bogged down in a lot of extra nonsense. A must-see movie if you're a Flo

Even though some pretty terrible choices are made, this is one of the best concert films.

A great concert film. It's no "Stop Making Sense," though!

Awesome live Floyd. This was re-released a few years ago with some terrible computer animation, so it loses a bunch of points for that.

The performances are incredible, and it was a really cool idea to film/record in the ancient ruins in Pompeii. The terrible CGI in the latest edition takes away a fair bit and they could have done alot more visually.

It's somehow ironic see them talking about how they solved their conflicts knowing what happened a decade later.

"Echoes"=orgasm. The other songs are pretty great too.

Excellent live performance filmed at a unique location: an ancient and empty amphitheater. Trippy goodness if you dig Floyd.

Not a Pink Floyd fan, so the random musings weren't of much interest to me, but it's certainly well edited and the music and visuals create an interesting cohesive experience.

At their best, Pink Floyd were certainly something. It seems like they actually tried. Some things here seem better than the studio versions. Originally watched it maybe 25 years ago. Maybe 30.

Yes, yes, yes. Echoes is yum, Careful With That Axe Eugene is another beauty, and everything else, the whole lot (without the horribly crusty CGI of the directors cut) is something to behold lovingly for every Floyd fan. If you're not a Floyd fan, then give the peace pipe a whirl and you'll soon find yourself becoming one.

Don't watch the director's cut. The CGI with 3D models of pompeii and spacy stuff are really annoying. The concert video is awesome though

10/10 music, feels wrong to judge it as a film. The directors cut with poor CGI is simply distracting from the performance. I'm not really sure how to rank this as a 'movie' but I just can't bring myself to put Pink Floyd below a 7.

Some of the effects are pretty cheesy (and I'm talking about the original version here, not the ridiculous director's cut). It could also be a little longer. It sure would be nice to have "Interstellar Overdrive" and "Astronomy Domine" on here, or one of the lighter songs like "A Pillow of Winds" or "Cymbaline". But the music we do get is phenomenal, some of my favorite Floyd songs, and the novelty of performing to the empty Pompeii stadium is interesting.

floyd in their psychedelic prime. before they turned into a huge stageshow and hired back up musicians. an epic must see for any floyd fan! the whole pompeii idea is pretty cool, too. if you get the dvd, somewhere in the menus, you have the option to watch just the concert footage. like everyone has said, the director's cut cgi is pretty bad... haha. it's all about the show. some of the backstage antics are pretty awesome, too. darkside in the works, and mason disputing the shape of his pie.

I'm a fan of this period (and earlier) of Pink Floyd, so I'm thankful that the audio is an uninterrupted Pink Floyd soundtrack. Is it really live? Well, just as live as any other music recorded privately over several days in two different locations. Are they really in Pompeii? Well, partly; the rest of the time they're in a Paris studio. The visuals are definitely "of their time," but you could say the same of the music - I think they compliment each other and make a good anchor to the period.

A lot of Wright-centered footage and awful CGI (in the directors cut at least) detract slightly from the excellent early Floyd prog-rock epics. This is mostly made up for by the fact that there's a dog-fronted song.
