Metallica Through the Never Reviews

Wesley Lovell
Cinema Sight

Two films wrangling for dominance and neither finding the purchase necessary to succeed.

Film Journal International

If Through the Never's attempts at creating a story-and-performance hybrid are only partially successful...its concert footage remains its prime selling point and strength.

Metallica fans may find the concert footage of this worshipful semi-documentary worthwhile.

Incorporating props, visual effects, lasers and pyro in eye-popping fashion, it eventually starts to seem like an enormous 3D version of a backdrop from Guitar Hero.

Metallica Through the Never succeeds as an enthralling and visceral concert movie experience but fails to use the medium for a deeper level of artistic appreciation.

"Metallica Through the Never" is an experience best seen and heard in IMAX. It will blow you away.

October 3, 2013

An exhilarating and immersive Metallica concert film twinned with a dark, trippy narrative following a roadie named Trip who pops a pill and goes on a mission to find a mysterious package.

Even as someone who finds Metallica's music silly (ditto the movie's incoherent apocalyptic fantasy sequences), I was floored by much of the visual imagination.

It's all very appropriately overblown, and director Antal gives the fireworks as much attention as he does each performer.

A gigantic spectacle, a virtual-reality experience that is both ridiculous and sublime, sometimes in the same moment.

This is the Metallica that Metallica wants you to remember. Larger than life, over-the-top and supremely powerful...

It's one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable cinematic experiences of the year, even if you couldn't pick a Metallica track out of some hypothetical never-ending playlist.

Metallica, those thrash virtuosos of doom, get the grand 3-D opera they deserve: a godless-apocalypse-meets-Vegas spectacle, full of fireballs and electric chairs.

The result is what every concert movie strives for -- the sense of being there, but with a far better view than you could ever actually afford. And the roadie's tale, while not the most meaningful plot, makes an excellent counterpoint to the music.

Schmoes Know

This is a band who has done everything there is to do in the world of music; they took a bold risk with this new style directed by Nimrod Antal.

"Through the Never" is a jaw-dropping, eye-popping, ear splitting reminder that the aristocracy that is heavy metal has only one true king: Metallica.

Why make an average concert movie when you can make something as weirdly mesmerizing as Through the Never?

DeHaan's possession of the spotlight might well best the band itself, since Metallica never completely catches fire live.

It's genuinely unsettling, and Metallica's intense, adrenaline-fueled music makes the horror sequences all that much more atmospheric and supercharged.
