Director Sacha Gervasi first saw Canadian metal band Anvil as a schoolboy in September 1982. He was so enamored with their "speed metal intensity", he ran away to become a roadie on their Forged In Fire and Backwaxed tours. When he reconnected with the band via the Internet in 2005, he was amazed to discover they were still rocking and decided to film a valentine to these guys who never gave up chasing their dream.

The film follows the band on a disastrous European tour, filmed in November 2005 and June 2006, and the recording sessions of This Is Thirteen in England. It includes affectionate testimonials on the band from Lemmy of Motörhead, Lars Ulrich of Metallica and Slash of Guns N' Roses.

Nope they were on the heaviest bands back in the day. Influenced a load of bands like Metallica and the like

true
this movie is awesome !

This was recently on BBC4. A great story. No one hit wonders. This is and was true metal forged in steel

I wonder if there is an easter egg of the lead singer taking a meals on wheel to Francis Rossi - watch it to find out.

worth 2 quid of any rock/metal/old skool thrash fan, and any one else who likes a good movie.

Good find - great film.

My son and I saw Anvil in Sheffield last month and got to meet the band afterwards

I picked this up today while on holiday in Llandudno - they also had the limited edition dvd with cd 'Thirteen' for £5.

None in my local,Cambridge. Worth the £2 though if anyone else can find it, incredibly heartening movie, although I dont personally like their music.

Awesome movie, one that i'd watch more than once.

Lips is one of the coolest guys ever! I think this DVD is like Spinal Tap meets The Wrestler - great stuff.

I saw them last year (or earlier this year) and they were great fun.

I was lucky enough to meet Rob and Lips in Bristol earlier in the year. You cannot meet two nicer more modest people. They won many fans for life that night.

Brilliant movie, and a bargain. Hot.

Agreed! My son used his birthday money to buy 4 of their CD's from iTunes instead of leeching it from elsewhere.

All the instore deals posted over the weekend are in my HMV, but not this one. I'd have liked this edition, good film.

Very apt username Mad Dog!

I went in, they only had the standard edition for £7. They said that the steelbook version was deleted and that they didn't have any and didn't know any other shops that had it. So err, good luck finding one.

I thought it was pretty sad overall to be honest, full credit to them for fighting to try achieve their dreams!

Got a copy this morning at HMV - Glasgow Sauchiehall Street

Good deal

There are copies floating around - picked one up (the last unfortunately) in Nottingham Wheeler Gate this morning.

Fantastic movie, managed to get the last one in my local HMV yesterday. Bargain!!!!
