I can't think of a more fitting title for this music documentary than "30 Years of Sacrifice: The Story of Living Sacrifice." Here is a band who, for all intents and purposes, should sit next to bands like Kreator, Overkill, Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, and the likes in the ceremonial wings of the Heavy Metal Hall of Fame. In many people's minds (including mine), they do. But to some, their overt Christian faith somehow unfairly held them back. That didn't keep them from fighting for their place in both the mainstream and Christian music history for the past three decades.

I didn't dislike that vision, but the differences in quality and passion for the source material between the two movies are immediately recognizable.

MANY years before and MANY years after Sid had come and gone, Glen Matlock handled the bottom-end for the British punk innovators. He was a founding member of the band and re-joined them for several reunions starting in 1996.
