Synopsis by Mark Deming
U2 began as a scrappy rock band thrown together by four Irish teenagers with more nerve than skill; with time, they grew into one of the most popular, innovative and respected groups of their day, commanding a massive worldwide audience and using their popularity as a springboard for making the world a better place. U2: An Unforgettable Journey is an unauthorized documentary on the band who has become the conscience of arena rock, featuring interviews and newsreel footage which offers a perspective on their music and their beliefs. Produced without the participation of the band, U2: An Unforgettable Journey features no music written by the members of the group.
