    Rock the Bells doesn't just delve behind the scenes; it makes a showstopping guest-MC out of each crazy new obstacle.

    An electrifying, occasionally terrifying documentary.

    Tense, hilarious and totally serendipitous.

    At several points, Chang is the only thing standing between his event and total chaos, as frustrated ticket-holders rush the gates.
  5. Reviewed by: Michael Ordona
    Stressful to watch, but its entertaining stage performances and document of people under pressure should interest even non-rap fans.
  6. A fascinating glimpse of a dreamer and a music culture that has always depended on dreams.

    This isn't about the verities of hip-hop so much as the chaos and confusion of mounting a big production with a slew of stoned MCs.

    First and foremost, I think it is a nice little film, I've always loved the concerts, and as a hard-core hip-hop music fan myself, it hits me in the spot for it intrigues me and provides new insight into the music business and I like the music. Collapse
