    It's one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable cinematic experiences of the year, even if you couldn't pick a Metallica track out of some hypothetical never-ending playlist.

    With "Gravity" around the corner, Metallica Through the Never isn't the year's most groundbreaking achievement, but it's surely the most earth-shattering, and that's enough to make it one helluva comeback story.

    Amazing concert footage filled with state of the art sound and 3D, while using it beautifully. the band is on fire and they are at the top of their game. This is all mixed with a story line full of symbolism about human nature and a young man's trip (pun intended) into his own subconscious. Definitely recommended for Metallica or heavy metal fans and anyone who likes new things and live music. Full Review »

    It's pretty impressive how they made this film, although, I tend to lower a movie's rating when the movie was not what I expected, and that's why I rated this a 7. Full Review »
