After more than thirty years of band history, more than 110 million sold albums, countless awards and an admission to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, it's hard for a band like Metallica to find new challenges they can still face. Sold out tours, one of the most successful albums of all time, a celebrated music documentary - James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo have already achieved all this. Now this success story is to be crowned with a unique 3D concert film. This work, shot in 3D, is unique because it is not, as usual, just a few concerts of a regular tour filmed and then cut together to a film. Metallica Through the Never" was a very special show, for which a spectacular stage was erected, which in combination with light, pyrotechnics and of course the music should offer the fans a great and unforgettable cinema experience.
Some of the greatest hits from 30 years of band history were captured on a total of five evenings with a total of 24 cameras in front of enthusiastic fans. The elaborate stage design allows some for Metallica fans downright iconic images to come to life, which is given a very special charm by the 3D optics. The whole thing is combined with a small side story in which the young Roadie Trip (Dane DeHaan) gets the order to fulfill an important mission until the end of the show at the other end of town. But a traffic accident, brutal riots and a mysterious masked horseman make this assignment for Trip a truly life-threatening affair.
Hungarian-American director Nimród Antal ("Kontrol", "Predators") has created a very atmospheric atmosphere for the scenes in this subplot. Nevertheless, they interfere with the enjoyment of the actual concert, because whenever the audience is drawn into the show and really goes along with the songs, they are torn away by the story about Trip. Surely it is not a bad idea in itself to add a certain something to a concert film. Nevertheless, despite the very good craftsmanship, the scenes here seem more like unnecessary filling material, which wouldn't have been necessary at all to keep the fans - and only for them the movie is made - in a good mood, especially because of the spectacular stage show.
This is how "Metallica Through the Never" has become a really good and very special concert film, despite its smaller hangers, which gives the fans the best possible live feeling from the screen and convinces with a great show as well as a good song selection. And therefore all fans of the band should not miss this 3D movie. Worth seeing
