In this second feature film starring the Beatles, Ringo purchases an unusual ring which marks him as the sacrificial victim of an obscure Eastern cult. The cult members, Clang (Leo McKern) and Ahme (Eleanor Bron), attempt to capture him and the chase is on. Strings of sight gags, one-liners and musical numbers boost the storyline.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, that's only 20% of the film. The rest of it is taken up by a hokey plot about getting back a mystical ring from Mr Starr, played by white Brittish actors in brown-face makeup with "Golly Gosh" accents. Very cringe-worthy today. As Lennon pointed out afterward, the band were merely extras in their own movie. One of the few times he was right.

I had forgotten just how much this movie makes you smile. You could say it is a bit daft and dated in parts but then the music starts playing and it's brilliant and once again you are singing along to each track.
If you are after a feelgood movie then you will not go wrong with this
I wonder which of today's pop stars will still be as popular in 50 years time?
'Help' is a very light-hearted show case for the Fab Four containing some really great Beatles songs from the pre Rubber Soul period. Not a great movie by any means, but contains a few genuinely funny moments and some unintended slices of what life was like back in the 1960s. Is it my imagination, or were a number of the scenes highly influential on the Monkees a year or so later?
On a slightly serious note, the upbeat tempo of the title song masks the rather sad message contained in John Lennon's lyrics.
I hadn't seen 'Help' for at least 30 years. It was great to see it again, but it will probably go to the back of the cupboard for another few years.
Five stars for the songs, of course!
possible for the many.
'The Beatles' were of course - the ultimate 'Pop Group'
as in this film the music during the early years was fresh and
uncomplicated, very commercial and loved by all ( well most )
the story line....'Ringo' wearing a sacrificial ring he'd found
and finding himself hunted by those that wanted it back, trouble
being.....he can't get it off to give it back.
It'll make ya' smile now and then for sure......the bonus......of
course is the music itself - it's great.
with songs such as the title track....'Help' a number one, also
'A Ticket to Ride' also a number one, along with enjoyable numbers
such as....'The night before' .....'You've got to hide your love away'
....'I need you' ....'You're going to lose that girl' ...'Another girl'
the seven songs release on side one of the 'Help' album. ( 1965 )
a little tale ... I was lucky enough to see many, many pop idols of
the day on stage live.......however, how many people do you know
that actually turned down the opportunity to see the fab-four perform
a good friend back then had secured tickets to see 'The Beatles' at
a venue around 40 miles away.......great opportunity.
must have been around mid 1963, the group would have been three hits
into their golden career....'Beatle Mania' had already taken hold, in
fact probably the most talked about subject of the time.
though I quite liked their songs released up to that time I wasn't
hooked to be honest.........I didn't take up the chance to see them,
a decision I've had to live with ever since....what an idiot ...eh ?
by the time their fourth and fifth singles charted 'She Loves You' then
'I want to hold your hand' I had woken up, realizing just how good the music
The Music, truly 'Magic'
the memories will come flooding back.
Its a nice Blue Ray picture and a must for anyone who likes music or the Beatles.
