History in the Making!
21 September 2004 | by (The Bad Place) – See all my reviews

Metallica's First Video! After they said they never would! And it's great! Lars tells you the backstory using humor and trivia. They actually came up with the concept on their own and THEN found out about the book and the movie "Johnny Got His Gun"! The rest is Metal history!

After that, you get to see 2 versions of the video. The first is the edited version with footage and little over 2 minutes of the song cut out. They did this so it would get played on the radio and MTV. Later, they carved a name for themselves in the mainstream and you usually hear the full version.

Then, the full blown, footage filled, disturbing, scary, and AWESOME real version.

The band footage is in an eerie, grainy black and white while the movie is in color. If you haven't seen the movie, you will be able to sleep at night, so, be happy. It is WEIRD. It jumps around, it is depressing and surreal, and there is a love scene between the main character and the nurse. "That's not weird!" you might say if you have never heard the song, but if you have, then you know a landmine has taken the main character's sight, speech, hearing, arms, or legs. They leave the love scene out of the video though, so, good....

Anyhoo, this is hard to find as of late, and my only copy is gone when my buddy borrowed it and moved, but I watched it so much that it probably has very limited life left, so, the joke's on him. Pick it up if you can. If you're a Metallica fan, it's a great thing to have,if you're not, it's a great thing to sell to a Metallica fan (or give if you're feeling generous).
