“A triumph of deft editing and extraordinary access, this is likely to be the most important music documentary of the year.” – Observer, UK
“Catches the exhilarating kick of Beatlemania as the band toured 15 countries from 1963 to 1966. Everything is here, from the band’s hysteria-making American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show to Lennon’s controversial remark that the Beatles ‘are more popular than Jesus’… Ron Howard’s documentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band’s delight in making it. Good move. It truly is a joy forever.” – Rolling Stone
“Here they are, alive-busting out all over, time and time again. Yeah, yeah, yeah.” –New Yorker
“The film’s heart involves the Beatles performances it gives us, which remain electrifying after all these years. The group’s fans today, of any age, are bound to welcome ‘Eight Days a Week,’ in which Beatlemania’s mid-‘60s comet of joy and astonishment is thrillingly captured.”– RogerEbert.com
