    Maybe I would have given a crap if Metallica hadn't sucked for the past 10 years or so, as if they were that fantastic to begin with. Plus, why the hell are we getting a movie about Metallica while they're still alive and together?

    Some Kind of Monster is a re-re-reloaded pile of steaming crap. Come on! Get in touch with your inner f***ing feelings? How about a band who just f***ing rocks? Pathetic, just pathetic. What next? Dr. Phil on tour with Megadeth? Here is a metal movie idea for you... BASH BASH BASH the f***ing universe. After this film, Metallica now OFFICIALLY deserves to loose metal music awards to Some Kind of Monster is a re-re-reloaded pile of steaming crap. Come on!

    These are rich, aging men in a young man's game, and the discrepancy between image and reality, captured by the filmmakers, makes for engrossing material.

    What's most captivating about Monster is that the camera never looks away and Metallica never hides.

    Pic itself is a long haul, at nearly 2½ hours; yet one needn't be a fan of Metallica or heavy metal to be engrossed throughout.
