Saw the movie on television and decided it was a movie I would like to watch again in the future. Since purchasing it I have indeed watched it several times with other adult family members and friends.

Format: DVD
From my understanding this was a made for television movie therefore it probably didn't have a big budget and shouldn't be taken as anything bigger than it is. It covers successful British band Def Leppard's career through the ups and down. The film begins on December 31st 1984 with drummer Rick Allen's car accident and then moves back in time to the late 70's to the band's origins and from then on continues in linear fashion. Hysteria-The Story of Def Leppard really begins with a young Joe Elliot working in a factory. Elliot auditions for acquaintance Pete Willis' band to be a guitar player after Pete informs him that his band lost their singer/guitarist. However, after hearing Joe's take on Jimmy Hendrix's "Purple Haze" the members all want him in as a singer instead. Elliot then proposes the name "Deaf Leopard" which was then styled as Def Leppard. From then on the ban records their first demo in 1979 and eventually their first album "On Through The Night". It follows the band's early tours, further recordings, relationships and so on. It shows Def Lepp recovering from Allen's accident and amputation of his left arm which came as a shock. Of course fans know that they came back bigger than they were with the Hysteria album and did just what producer Mutt Lang wanted, a Heavy-Metal "Thriller", an album with 7 hit singles. Hysteria is a story of rock `n' roll, success, excess, courage facing adversity and most importantly a story of determination.

I must that I enjoyed Hysteria: The Def Leppard Story for what it is. It offers a great look at the band's early and formative years, from their inception, recruiting band members, playing clubs, touring and recording with "Mutt" Lang. It covers Def Leppard's rise to the top in a non-perfect but a respectable way.

Excellent dramatic reinterpretation of an even more dramatic May 14 2005
By WilM. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is a movie focusing on well known facts from the Def Leppard 197901986 period.

It starts with Joe Elliot auditioning for Atomic Mass, the band including Sav and Pete Willis, and goes all the way to their first performance with Rick Allen after his accident.

The casting directors and vocal coaches did a fantastic job. Also, the director was able to pull off the personal background that affected highs (their first EP funded by Joe Elliott's dad) and lows (Steve Clark drinking his father's demons (literally) to death) of the band without overdramatizing them.

Also, the movie shows us the influence that Mutt Lange had on their carreer without forgetting the fact that the Lepps had the skills, the talent and the commitment to make it happen with his producing genius.

If you are a fan of Def Leppard, stop reading and buy this movie immediately. If you were a casual fan of the Pyromania and Hysteria albums, you might as well enjoy a nicely made movie that gives you a glimpse into the history of a hugely popular "pop" metal band.

What do you want??? I WANT ROCK N ROLL!

By E. A Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I absolutely LOVED this movie and highly, highly recommend it to ANYONE who has never seen it. I'm not a huge fan of Def Leppard and knew absolutely nothing about them...in fact I didn't even knew they were a British Band...yeah, yeah I know. But I found the movie to be very entertaining as well as informative. Even if you don't care for there music, still give it a try...you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised. Except for a concert scene at the end, very little of there music is played throughout the movie, with the focus being more on the band members, their private lives, and personal struggles and tragedies.

Hysteria Sept. 29 2005
By Teresa A. Irwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Since we recieved the DVD my kids watch it about every day. I never thought it would make a lasting impression but it has. It taught them that no matter what obstacle lies before them all they have to do is believe in themselves and they will overcome it.

An enjoyable, if short, portrayal... May 7 2006
By Fit Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As a longtime Def Leppard fan, I enjoyed this movie. It was hard to watch Steve Clark's struggle with his demons - I was always a fan of Steve, and to know what a difficult life he had leaves me feeling wistful for what might have been for him.

By the way, to previous reviewers: Rick Allen is not played by Kevin Dillon. The actor's name is Tat Whalley.

Saw this movie and.... June 27 2005
By witchitait - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
....thought it was fantastic. I almost forgot I was watching a movie. Afterwards, I saw a program with the Leps and it seems this movie was dead on (according to the things they talked about that had happened in their career). I recommend it to ANY Leppard fan, the long-time deadicated fan and the casual "like some of their stuff" folk...you may ALL come away being Lep fans.
