Review

Our Score
This hugely enjoyable documentary focuses on the early years of Oasis, the iconic rock band who rose to fame during the early 1990s. Blessed with a wealth of behind-the-scenes footage, it shows how they went from being freshly signed newcomers to era-defining superstars. The archive footage is fascinating to watch, and it's accompanied by voiceover interviews with everyone who contributed to the band's success. Inevitably, these are dominated by Noel Gallagher and his younger brother, Liam, both of whom are genuinely funny and unusually frank. Some viewers might be disappointed that Supersonic doesn't cover the band's break-up, but it has several moments that will give you goosebumps (witness the band walking on stage at Knebworth), and there's plenty of great material. Importantly, you don't need to love Oasis in order to enjoy the film, but if you are a fan, you'll be "mad for it".

Summary
