Metallica: Through the Never 3D

Metallica, a legion of their fans and Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) star in this concert film shot in IMAX that "marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative". DeHaan plays a roadie sent out on a mission that turns into a surreal adventure, during a roaring Metallica arena concert (staged and shot exclusively for the film). From Nimród Antal, director of Predators, who co-writes alongside the four members of the band themselves.

A definitive document for anyone who’s ever hoisted the devil-horn fingers in metalhead solidarity.

It’s a histrionic distraction from the band doing their thing. Watch "Some Kind Of Monster" instead.

Maybe because the band enjoyed raves for its daring 2004 psychodrama, Some Kind of Monster, an experimental narrative is shoehorned in, involving a roadie (Dane DeHaan) doing bloody battle in a deserted city. Your heart sinks with every cutaway.

Despite swooping camera movements and elaborate stagecraft, the film produces detachment rather than immediacy.

In between songs there's a movie within a movie as Dane DeHaan silently takes on the forces of anarchy on behalf of the band. Awesome.

Even at its goofiest, Through The Never brings back the communal appeal of those early concert films, which were often just a way for young fans to bond with other young fans over the music of entertainers who seemed to understand what they really wanted.

However mindless and heartless it may be, Through the Never succeeds as pure sense-swamping spectacle. It is a blow-out banquet for Metallica fans, and a blockbuster rock-and-rollercoaster ride for any heavy metal tourists curious to see this music played at major-league level.
