Following other unintentionally hilarious air-punching classics – Anvil! The Story of Anvil, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster (2004) and, of course, the genre-defining This is Spinal Tap (1984) – this is the latest heavy metal rockumentary, and follows Iron Maiden's Somewhere Back in Time world tour of 2008.

Centre stage is the Maidens' own private jet, Ed Force One. The movie catches the rocksmiths as they play 23 gigs in 45 days, travel 44,000 miles, and perform to 500,000 fans. The film picked up the 24 Beats Per Second award for best music documentary at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year.
