Incredible.....the way the mixed a disturbing,epic and insane storyline during the concert was insanely masterful and creative. Yes the story is short and while there isn't much of it it's still very entertaining! Story highlights for me was:the armored resistance member chasing Dane Dehaan, Dane literally lighting himself on fire and beating the s*** out of some baddies,Dane smashing a building and destroying over 2 blocks,the resistance members fighting the swat teams. See this movie. Love you Dane!!:)
The Metallica performance was very solid. They are on point and not sloppy as their shows usually go. Hetfields voice holds up surprisingly well with not much high pitch screeching as he has been doing the past 15 years or so. The "story" that goes along with it, not so great. Has some okay visuals but doesn't tell much. Fortunately, it doesn't take up much of the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the concert and that was good enough for me. It's worthy of at least a rental for those who are still fans.
I was scared to watch this movie. Scared Lars Ulric would show up at my house with a law suit. Metallica lost all credibility with me when they started sueing their fans. Go away, your not relevant anymore, it's not 1989. This movie is awful, the only magical trip I want to see Metallica take, is to an early grave.
