Metallica: Through the Never- three-quarters-concert film, one-quarter-disaster epic-is the most fun I've had at the movies this year.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

For a loyal fan, this is something of a godsend.

Giddily preposterous.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 15, 2013
Two films wrangling for dominance and neither finding the purchase necessary to succeed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
October 14, 2013
If Through the Never was a straight ahead concert film it would be a masterpiece of heavy metal showmanship. Yet this is a two headed beast, with one side charging forward while the other is sitting lame in a state of morose confusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Metallica fans may find the concert footage of this worshipful semi-documentary worthwhile.
October 10, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 6, 2013
Solely for hardcore Metallica fans, a 3D spectacular, immersive thrash metal music experience
October 4, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

"Metallica Through the Never" is an experience best seen and heard in IMAX. It will blow you away.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Awesome.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 3, 2013
A bold attempt to pimp a Metallica concert film falls short of initial promise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 3, 2013
This is a lame shaggy-dog narrative, and there's no one to blame but Metallica, who authorised Through the Never and take producing and writing credits.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 3, 2013
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.

Watch Some Kind Of Monster instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 1, 2013
It's all very appropriately overblown, and director Antal gives the fireworks as much attention as he does each performer.
September 29, 2013
A gigantic spectacle, a virtual-reality experience that is both ridiculous and sublime, sometimes in the same moment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 28, 2013
This is the Metallica that Metallica wants you to remember. Larger than life, over-the-top and supremely powerful...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
