I've just watched this and don't quite know what to make of it.
Whilst I love my hard rock and heavy metal, I'm not a massive fan of Metallica however I'd heard about this and wanted to check it out.
I must admit, I want to see them live now though! If this is an indication of their concerts and level of enthusiasm, I'm in!
The concert stuff was great. The effects were amazing. Just not sure about the tie in with the story. It was OK, but it didn't grab me by the big ones and drag me in. It could've been so much more perhaps (but not sure what!!!)
I'd suggest for the die-hard fans only....
Oh, by the way, watch right through the credits!!!
