Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
Dennis Quaid aptly sums up Meat Loaf’s offstage persona when he pegs the portly rocker as an “angster.” The movie star’s cameo (yielding a painful “Gloria” cover) is one of few surprises in this shallow tour doc, which often plays like a compilation of the singer’s head-in-hands mini meltdowns. Manufacturing a plot, director Bruce David Klein spends much of the running time on a “controversy” over risqué staging—a pity, since the concert footage actually finds the former Marvin Lee Aday in outstanding, if sweat-drenched, form.
