I knew it would be good going into the film but I was shocked at how great a film this was.

If this review had to be in pantomime, it would be me head-banging and busting out some gnarly air guitar for an hour straight – and loving every minute of it. That’s how much fun this concert film is. But be warned: If you’ve never rocked-out to a Metallica song, or don’t even know what throwing the horns is, this movie is not for you. Full Review

It makes for a unique sort of concert film, but also a weaker one. It would have been better if it had dispensed with the frail narrative or else committed to being completely bananas. But as die-hard Metallica fans well know, a little buffoonery is worth weathering for the main attraction. Full Review

The songs still sound great here, but the instruments aren't amplified nearly as much as the nostalgia and vanity of the men who wield them. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
A definitive document for anyone who’s ever hoisted the devil-horn fingers in metalhead solidarity. Full Review
Eric Kohn
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. Full Review
