    Synopsis


    Metallica Through the Never
    A young Metallica roadie named Trip (Dane DeHaan) embarks on an apocalyptic journey through a decimated urban landscape as the band plays to a sold-out arena crowd in this high-concept concert film from director Nimrod Antal (Predators). As the band takes the stage before thousands of screaming fans, Trip is informed that a driver tasked with delivering a crucial item has gotten stranded on the other side of the city. It's his job to recover it, but getting there won't be easy because as the elaborate concert gets underway, rioters and police begin clashing in the streets. The city is burning, and a mysterious, masked figure on horseback is thriving on the chaos. When Trip incurs the wrath of the ruthless, hammer-wielding psycho and his marauding gang, he realizes that he may not live long enough to complete his mission. Meanwhile, the show must go on, and Metallica thrills the crowd with a thunderous collection of classics that include "Creeping Death", "Ride the Lightning", "Master of Puppets", "Battery" and "Enter Sandman. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Fantastic picture quality

      First my four star rating is because for the price the 2D bluray could have been included and the bass could be a bit louder. Now, the awesome, and why it's worth the price. I saw this in IMAX and the disc gave the same eye popping and jaw dropping picture quality. I watch a lot of IMAX and this is by far one of the best IMAX and IMAX to disc movies I've seen. The movie itself gets you on the stage, you can imagine being that close. I was very skeptical about the story. I was impressed by it in that it kept my guessing and still does, I haven't watched the extras and kinda don't want the story explained. I think all Metallica fans will enjoy the movie if for nothing more than great concert footage and the end credits. If you don't know the band and are curious, it's a good way to experience the band for the first time.

      This was a fantastic concert film. It didn't rely solely on the concert footage to drive the picture, but instead interspliced film footage of a roadies quest to find a mysterious object for the band. The concert footage itself was spectacular, especially the bulletstorm used to open up "one." The electric chair that hung high above the stage is lit up with lightning bolts fueling "ride the lightning." As the concert progresses so does the story involving the young roadie. The music crushes as the chaos in the outside streets rages on. Its all led by an apocalyptic figure on a horse following the roadie. Its interesting to see the stage creation come to life. Set dedecorations come to life as songs from various albums are performed. All the stages of Metallica's career are performed in grand fashion in a fantastic representation. Showing full heartedly that Metalicca can still perform and rock out relentlessly!

      Package Contents Misleading

      Being a long time fan of Metallica I had a friend tell me about this movie. I quickly searched the internet and came across this copy on Best Buy. Although I wasn't too sure about the package contents, it lead me to believe that I was purchasing a 3 disc set. 1 3D Blu Ray, 1 standard Blu Ray and a DVD. When my package arrived, I received 1 3D Blu Ray and that was it. There was a code that I could go online and redeem for a digital DVD copy that you could download and view on personal devices. I downloaded the digital copy and burned it to a DVD. I have a 3D computer and I watched the movie. Excellent movie. But when I tried to play the 3D Blu Ray copy on my PS3, all I got was sound and no picture. I tried on a friends stand alone Blu Ray player and it would not play period. Movie was great, package contents misleading. I figured I got what I ordered so there was no need to contact Best Buy and lodge my complaint.

      A must for Metallica Fans

      There's somewhat of a story going on but this disc is more about seeing Metallica in 3D and hearing them rock out in HD audio. The 3D is pretty awesome and you actually feel like you're in the crowd. The stage setup is pretty cool. Metallica knows how to bring it. The story that's occurring while the concert is happening is a bit cheesy but still entertaining and goes well with the music. You MUST have a 3D t.v and either a 3D blu ray player or PS3 to view this disc. I was able to watch it in 2D by pressing the 3D button on my t.v remote but it would've been nice if they simply included a separate 2D copy of the film. It's still worth getting if you're a fan and if you have a 3D t.v and 3D player.

      Love the band, not so much this package

      Love Metallica, loved how this movie looked and sounded in the movie theater. Obviously you can't recreate that environment in a home setting but I was looking forward to all kinds of killer extras. The movie documentary on the making of the film is ok, but focuses too much on everyone NOT in the band! I LOVE 3d, and all the movies I buy I prefer the 3d version because usually comes with the regular blu-ray version as well, and digital as well. Not this package. It's 3d only! The digital version is some 3rd party site I never heard of. Not easy to download. I had to email the company directly to fix it. If you want the full set of 3d + blu-ray, you're gonna have to pay $70! No thanks

      Its Metallica in a concert movie with a small plot

      Well I bought this movie on sale and with a certificate and a coupon. So great deal on the movie. The concert footage was really good and to me had that been the whole movie would have been fine, Though the story mixed in with the concert footage was good too. There is a 3D option for this movie. Though I didnt buy as I have no 3D blue ray player or a 3D TV. I feel in some parts of the movie it would have made some scenes stand out more. But without 3D still a good movie and definately not the usual concert movie. if your a Metallica Fan you will like this especialy since you get to hear and see some classics, you dont always hear or see in their concerts. also the customer service at best buy was good.

      One of the best concerts I have ever seen!!!!!!!!

      No joke this is one of the best concerts I have ever seen, recorded or live! Saw this in IMAX 3-D and it was absolutely incredible. Guaranteed that you have never seen a stage performance like this. To put this whole movie together, they spent over $30 million dollars, and it shows! There's a minor plot in the movie involving a roadie, but the story doesn't make much sense and just serves as a visual aid, nothing more. That shouldn't matter as the music is top notch. I don't have a 3-D TV, but this concert is best seen in 3-D as you feel like you are actually on stage with the band. Absolutely necessary for anyone that calls themselves a Metallica fan.

      Best Concert DVD I've heard

      This is quite possibly the best DVD I have ever heard. The cinematics are crisp. The story line was interesting. The sound, however, was like being there. I have seen Metallica in concert, but always hated the live music recordings. Now that this DVD exists, I don't need to watch it. Although I do. This is a concert DVD. It is staged and scripted, which people seem to miss. But there is also this back story video that follows the music as it follows the character though an oncoming apocalypse. Which really makes this one long music video, to live music. So it's not a concert DVD, but also not a movie. Yet this excels as both.
