Exceptionally well edited if exhaustive documentary tracking the rise of the British rock group Oasis over a 2 1/2 year period which saw them rise from playing to a handful of people at a club called The Boardwalk to playing to a quarter of a million people at Knebworth. Though their eventual implosion is often remarked on this is much more of a celebration than an elegy.
Great. Kind of mystical. You really get to feel that Oasis success was written by fate, like I think Noel says at some point. The missing star is beacuse I wish they had gone a bit deeper into Liam and Noel's feud.
Not having listened to any Oasis before watching this movie, I must honestly admit that it made me want to delve into their history. Besides the fact it seemed to drag in some parts, I didn't find anything wrong with the film. It is what it is, it works really well; I like it's style, I enjoyed the music and I especially liked how none of the narrators were shown on the screen as they were talking.
SUPERSONIC is a great documentary about a British band called Oasis. I felt that director Mat Whitecross really knew its source material. He is able to tell Oasis' life story from zero until they're famous. SUPERSONIC wants to show us why Oasis is the biggest band in the world and How genius are Noel and Liam Gallagher. Too bad, SUPERSONIC didn't show the tension between Liam & Noel that made the band split...
editing and VFX eye-candy but it's more like an in-depth look at the sibling rivalry between Liam and Noel. should've insisted more on Noel's eventual destruction of the band, McCarroll's departure or their last albums
didn't realise that i was an oasis fan until i was in the screen and knew all the words to the songs. fresh and honest and insightful, gave me a new perspective on liam's behaviour and how difficult it must be to go through such huge changes in circumstances so young.
