A must see for fans and other people
2 February 2015 | by robiisgodSee all my reviews

This is truly a great insight to one of the biggest bands of my childhood - The Backstreet Boys. Soon you realize this is a heartbreaking story of a band that came out of only the members' talents and will to go on and keep singing great songs. It shows all the good and bad A.J., Brian, Howie, Nick and Kevin went through the passed 20 years. Finally we get to see the beginning of the group and the evolution of the band combined with group visiting their homes and sharing their secrets. Every true BSB fan should watch it and even people who aren't fans should definitely see it. There are also some Easter eggs of unfortunately unreleased songs, so all in all it is a must see. It is real, authentic, emotional and a bit nostalgic film to watch, especially if you are a kid from 90ties who has grown up in Europe, listening to the best vocal harmony group.
