"Geschichten von Musikern, die zu wenig beachtet wurden, gibt es wie Sand am Meer, die Legende der Monks aber ist tatsächlich so
außergewöhnlich, dass die zwei Filmemacher Dietmar Post und Lucia
Palacios daraus einen grandiosen und zu Recht mit Lob überhäuften
Film zaubern konnten, der nun erstmals auf DVD veröffentlicht wird.
Sie setzen darin der Band und ihrer Ära ein beeindruckendes
Mit Liebe für Details, aber auch für die ganz großen Bilder wird die
märchenhafte Geschichte von den fünf zu Beginn der Sechziger in
Westdeutschland gestrandeten US-Soldaten aufbereitet, die den
Rock'n'Roll für sich entdeckten."

Christoph Dallach (Der Spiegel, April 2009)
