Anvil – Movie Review
The Story of Anvil – At fourteen years old, best friends Lips and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever.
“Anvil” was a heavy metal rock band and a contemporary of Bon Jovi, and in fact opened for Bon Jovi on the Japan tour in the 80’s. This is the story of all the bands who made it and the one that didn’t even though they had a good manager, they had a good arranger and it’s really a much better movie than it sounds like. It’s a much better documentary, and I had the privilege of meeting the original Anvil, including the infamous Lips. This is a movie that if you’re not crazy about the music you’ll still fall in love with the guys who never gave up on their dream. I give it four stars for that.
