Storyline

Cliff 'Em All, Metallica's first video, is a tribute to late original bassist Cliff Burton. James Hetfield describes it as "a compilation of bootleg footage shot by sneaky Metallifux, stuff shot for TV that was never used, but we've held onto, home footage, personal fotos and us drunk. But most important, it's really a look back at the 3-1/2 years that Cliff was with us and includes his best bass solos and the home footage and pix that we feel best capture his unique personality and style."

Truly Awesome
4 August 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie on DVD about a year ago and it is awesome. It's like your at a metallica concert and your seeing all the band members Cliff, James, Lars, and Kirk. It is an amazing film as they perform all their hits from the albums Kill Em All to Master Of Puppets. You even get to see them drunk, solos, and footage of Cliff and an early clip of Metallica when Dave Mustaine was in the band. Imagine your in a band and your band acheiveing so much that Metallica has achieved throughout the years. In The DVD/VHS they have a rare interveiw with an early Metallica with Dave Mustaine and they have Cliff's 2nd gig on the video. Whoever got this on tape I thank you.

Sincerely Metallica's BIGGEST Fan
