    Fantastic picture quality

    Posted

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Amazing performance by Metallica with a setlist filled with classic songs. The band is tight and on form. The vocals were probably dubbed in later which makes it a little better than some of the other recent live stuff. The plot gets in the way of the performance and is ridiculous. I refused to see it in the theater but would recommend the blu ray picture is perfect. It is high quality. I have listen to Metallica for 30 years and this is worth it if you are a fan and not a hater. I highly recommend this to anyone from some one just being introduced or a long time fan

    I saw teasers for this many months ago and couldn't wait for it to be released. I splurged and bought the 3D version. The plot is passable, the music is good, but not enough of the old Metallica IMHO. I don't care for new bass player Robert Trujillo; to each his own, I guess. Some great concert footage with some cool effects, especially in 3D, but not on the same level as some of the earlier concert performances, e.g. Cunning Stunts. And some of the acting is just cheesy, notably the goofy onstage "accident" near the film's finale.

    Ok, so Metallica has only been touring outside the United States for a few years now, and my budget is not allowing me to enjoy foreign travel anytime soon, so this movie is the next best thing to seeing Metallica live. I love this movie! The action is great, suspense is awesome... you will be DYING to know what is in the bag!!!! I'm not telling. Seeing Metallica up close and personal in this movie with such clarity.... it looks as if you could just reach out and touch them! That alone is worth much more than the price of this DVD to me! \m/

    Just a heads up, as I mentioned to the BB CS rep when returning the video, that the text description of the video does not mention that this is only 3D compatible. The 1 star is based on the BB web site information, not on the video content. Hoping to save other folks from the same mistake and having to return the product as there is no "3D" listed in the product description, only visible on the video cover screen capture. I will repurchase the video w/o 3D.

    Metallica is my favorite rock bank and this movie rocks! Its got all the elements: a kick@$$ concert on an epic stage with spectacles that pays tribute to their best songs like Ride the Lightening, One, And Justice for All, while juxtaposed to a plot of the band's groupie sent on a perilous journey to refuel and recover a mysterious item from a broken down tour truck. This film is a thrill ride of Metallica's signature hard-pounding tunes and intense action assaulting the senses

    Great concert film - No 2D

    This is a great concert film. 3d video and 5.1 audio quality both earn 5 stars. Metallica fans with 3d setup and surround sound will not be disappointed. However, there is NO 2d version included with this blu ray - only 3d. Typically blu ray 3d can also play in 2d, but that is not the case with this release. At this price, this drawback is the only thing keeping it from 5 stars.

    I saw this movie 3 times in the theater. I also bought several copies as gifts for people. Obviously MetallicA rules but this movie is so much more then just a concert film. It's like your on stange and the 3D work isn't corny it's really a depth thing will show off your set up big time. The story is a real trip and the biggest baddest stage show ever done seriously 48 trucks worth of equipment or something. Just buy it now!

    Nobody expected the plot to be inspiring, so we should consider this to be a 2 hour Metallica concert in 3D and that's a good thing. The band is in top form playing their favorites with a unique stage performance while a concert roadie encounters just about everything while trying to get a cannister of gasoline to a stranded equipment van. As a Metallica fan, this is perfect for me. I love the music. The 3D is beautiful. The sound quality is great.

    I bought this version cause like most 3d versions usually contain a standard blueray 2d. This doesn't. I took it back and got the cheaper standard blueray version. The version that contains both was $60, tottally out of the question. Love the 2d version, live Metallica footage, combined with a cool side story! Watch it on 11 (volume level from Spinal Tap) and make sure your home theatre has beefy bass! Just awesome Metallica!

    I am not a big Metallica fan but I decided to see this movie in IMAX 3D and it was one of the greatest theater experiences of my life! I bought the 3D Blu-Ray and played it on my 7.4 surround sound system and it was still a great movie to enjoy! Do yourself a favor and watch this in 3D with a high end sound system. You will not regret it!

    This is the concert video people have been waiting for from Metallica. I already own several other DVDs and this is right at the top. With a mix of new songs and tried and true favorites, they span their entire career. It is always interesting to see how songs change when played live over the years. Since it is hard to see Metallica on tour as often as I would like, this is the next best thing.
