U2 CAN BE AT THE ROSE BOWL

Advantages: A good concert film for fans of U2
Disadvantages: Too many camera angles in short spaces of time and Bono's voice isn't what it was

How does it compare to ...

Nein, Nein, Nein!

Advantages: Some nice costume design and a couple of reasonable performances.
Disadvantages: Dreadful direction, poor writing and pathetic musical numbers.

Definitely not a 9 from me
