4 stars out of 5 -- "Gervasi's account isn't simply comic: it's an affecting study of young dreams buffeted by middle age..."
Total Film

5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] amazing story about optimism, limits and the underside of the rock 'n' roll dream. Much more than a rockumentary, this will have you questioning whether anyone should ever abandon their dreams."

3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Anvil is a real Canadian heavy metal band, and also one of hard rock's great also-rans....Using a Greek chorus of metal gods, including members of Anthrax and Slash from Guns N' Roses, Gervasi advances many theories for why success eluded this band."
Box Office

Its a hilarious, and unexpectedly moving, documentary about the greatest metal band youve probably never heard of -- Anvil, a crew of Canadian headbangers who came up in the demon-thrash 80s and were potent and original enough to influence the style and sound of Anthrax, Metallica, and Megadeth. -- Grade: A
Entertainment Weekly

[T]he earnest, heartfelt striving of the two men at the center of Anvil makes the bands story more touching than comical.
New York Times

3.5 stars out of 4 -- The biggest surprise is not the pervasive comedy in this compelling rockumentary. Its the poignant, even heartbreaking, moments that sneak up on you as the saga unfolds.
USA Today

The film is a surprisingly charming look at the haphazard career path of some earnest, eternally hopeful rockers who cling to optimism about a glorious future despite harsh realitys repeated blows.
Los Angeles Times

[A] loopy, endearing documentary about the aging front men of a heavy-metal band....Youll be pulling for Anvil every step of the way.
Wall Street Journal

"[W]hile ANVIL! is frequently funny, it'd be a mistake to call the band a joke....Within the portrait of Anvil's endurance, we also see why they never made it huge: The band is too nice."
A.V. Club

3 stars out of 4 -- "It shows the grit, sweat and blood that the non-pop rock bands have to deal with to do the thing they love....[The] interviews with Slash and Lars Ulrich add weight to the influence Anvil had on the heavy metal community."

3 stars out of 4 -- "ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL is a documentary about the moderate rise and long, long fall of their band, where musicians in the two other slots came and went, but Lips and Robb rocked on."
Chicago Sun-Times

3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Want to hear the heart of rock & roll? You can hear it thundering in Anvil....[A] powerhouse doc..."
Rolling Stone

"THE STORY OF ANVIL is a love letter -- or, better yet, a devil's-horn-salute -- to the band from filmmaker Sacha Gervasi, an old Anvil fan..."
Washington Post

Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Ten Best Documentaries Of 2009" -- "A story of hope, dogged perseverance and rock and roll..."
Chicago Sun-Times
