While the reviews of Metallica: Through the Never have been pretty solid, the concensus seems to be that the film’s wrap, directed by Predators helmer Nimrod Antal, is weak sauce.
Mike Pereira caught a premiere screening at last week’s Toronto International Film Festival, and reports back with some good news, and some bad news. Basically, it’s solely for hardcore fans (that’s okay with me!).
“Metallica: Through the Never is a celebration of the binding bond between the band and its loyal fan-base,” says Mike in his review. “It’s made for the fans by a fan. Antal has successfully captured what it means to be a Metallica fan as well as given us a damn fine concert film to boot. If you love the band then there’s simply no excuse why you shouldn’t go run out to see this and in the best cinema around.”
The wrap follows Trip, a young roadie for Metallica, who is sent on an urgent mission during the band’s show. But what seems like a simple assignment turns into a surreal adventure.
