Goofs

When Trip has found the bag, he opens it to find out what is inside. A few moments later, when he tries to run from the angry mob, the bag is still open. In the next shot, running towards the high fence, the bag is closed. It would have been impossible for him to close the bag while running. See more »

Unreal
16 September 2013 | by QPrimeSSee all my reviews

I highly suggest this to anyone that is a fan of rock and roll in general. Metallica has provided an unbelievable experience for fans in general of music and it should be noted that you must not be a fan of Metallica to truly appreciate what they've done here and the kind of risk it took. This has never been done before. We are witnessing a band once again trekking onto untracked waters and if anyone can trudge through that and come out successful, well it would be Metallica as they've already proved they can walk through fire and brimstone. Just as they took the giant Napster down, so too they will slay the concert documentary world changing it for the better forever.
