Anvil: The Story Of Anvil - Review

The music industry is hard, it’ll either welcome you with open arms, chew you up and spit you out or ignore you entirely. From that moment on you have choices to make, you can either give up and go on to other things, bask in the glory of your success and hope that it lasts or you can be like Anvil.

Canadian metal band Anvil were a band that were playing alongside the best in the Eighties and yet for some reason they never got picked up and never became the success that they and many others thought they would be.

However, that never stopped them and 30 years later they are still making music, still playing to their fans and hoping that they will get the big break that they deserve. Anvil: The Story of Anvil is a documentary that’s coming back to cinemas this year and looking back its story is as relevant as ever.

Following Anvil which comprises mainly of lead singer Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner (not that one), the documentary shows where they are now and how they’ve never lost their passion for the music. Although, behind their passion lies a lot of emotion and possibly regret of what they could have been.

Music has always been their drive, but they still have to hold down steady jobs and have families to support after all.

Still working hard and making music, the documentary also shows the connections with family and the relationship between two friends who believe in each other. Now in their fifties it’s clear that they’ve seen better days and Lips may be taking the one that got away harder than his partner, but it’s a testament that they’re still together and so close.

Anvil is a documentary that not only speaks to music aficionados, but to people who have ever followed a dream and failed or given up. It reminds us of ourselves and everything we’ve done that perhaps hasn’t worked out in the way that we planned. Life may get you down, but thankfully Anvil are still there to remind us to keep on rocking.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
