Format: DVD
I have watched this concert several times, and it never bores me. This concert is a perfect demonstration of Metallica's talent and philosophy. The energy created by these four artists (particularly Kirk) is apparant, giving an amazing performance of all tracks, but especially "One", "Fade to Black", "Fuel" and "Nothing else matters". The dvd version has exclusive interviews which show Metallica as genuine, fun guys who are extremely passionate and dedicated to their music.
Even if you weren't there, it feels as though you're experiencing the real thing whilst you watch. Obviously, they're brilliantly talented, but it's their charisma that also contributes to the atmosphere created. Overall, a fantastic concert. The only thing I'd suggest, is to buy the dvd as opposed to the vhs, as not only because of the added features, but because I'm noticing the sound on the vhs is fading because of the avid playing. Believe me, avid playing WILL be an issue when you watch this!

This is what bands should be aiming for when they record concerts onto video and DVD. Cunning Stunts is a masterpiece featuring some of the finest metal songs of all time by the best of the best, Metallica.
The atmosphere is incredible. When you watch this, you actually feel like you're there, relishing in Metallica's energy which is captured so well on this 2-disc set. Every Metallica song worth mentioning up to Re-Load is on this (the only notable exception is Sanitarium which is partly included in Kirk's guitar doodle). It even features an early version of Fuel with altered lyrics.
There are no downsides to this DVD. There are no dull moments as this is a captivating masterpiece which showcases the brilliance of one of the most innovative bands of all time. If you're a fan of Metallica, buy this as soon as you possibley can because it is a must have for any fan. Great job Metallica, you've done yourselves proud!

Filmed over two nights, this must have been an amazing concert for those lucky enough to have been there - for the rest of us this DVD gives an experience that is an excellent substitute.
Every Metallica song you would expect is on there - even the early material.
The DVD delivers quality sound with 5.1 available and a choice of camera angles on 3 tracks (Ain't My Bitch, For Whom The Bell Tolls and Wherever I May Roam). I don't know why it is only these three and not all of them but it is a good feature never the less if none of the tracks had multiple camera angles.
The extras are pretty good with interviews, behind the scenes footage/making of and subtitles if you feel like singing along if you don't know the words!
As Metallica havenot realeased a 'Best Of' album, this DVD is an excellent introduction to Metallica for newcomers to the band and a must have for the die-hard fan.
Brilliant, but it is a shame the concert is not on one disc and the extras on the other.

Metallica plays all the hits you'd expect and then some!- The sound is excellent, and its brilliantly filmed. Highlights have to be the Kill/Ride medley and Master of Puppets! Its a shame the concert could not have been put onto one disc though (with some of the bonus features discarded), and a little lower in price. Overall, a must have for any 'big' metallica fan, particularly anyone who saw them on this tour!

A superb recording of the best rock band on the planet. Picture quality and sound are both crystal clear. The band are on top form and the set list includes all of the tracks you could hope for. One minor grumble, the extras are worth a view, but you do wonder if the whole concert could have fitted on 1 disc without them. Even at that, the overall quality of the package is so high, I think it was worth the purchase price.

Format: DVD
The content on these discs is fantastic, crystal sharp pictures although the sound seemed a little flat on the pyro. Great selections of songs, a complete mix original stuff to Fuel. Can't help but think they could have put the whole concert on one disc and the special info on the second, for a better layout but otherwise. 6 out of 5 for the band. Lets see lots more Metallica DVD.

Filmed some time between the release of Load and the quickly forgettable Reload, this live DVD encompasses a lot of why Metallica were a great band. Opening with an instrumental which would go on to become the song 'Bad Seed', the gig ramps up as it goes along.

James Hetfield is on fire all throughout this gig and manages to enforce his impossible task of playing the rhythm parts to most songs while singing. This gig offers a snapshot back to the days of when James' charisma on-stage was 5*, possibly due to the fact he was drinking at that time rather than the stale, born again wet blanket that he has become.

On the contrary, Kirk is just a joke here. He looks like a teenage boy who is lost in a sea of sexual confusion while trying to remain as 'one of the guys'. He spends most of the gig scouting the front row of the audience looking for an equally lost boy to confide in or a burly man to take him back stage afterwards and smack his bottom. While Hetfield is clearly enjoying himself and remaining tight on the rhythm, it is painfully clear that Kirk is playing at 100% of his ability here which percolates through into a waterfall of bum notes and awkward backing vocals.

I always liked Newstead even though he wasn't popular with everyone. Since leaving Metallica, he's been like a blind man searching for sugar in a sandpit with what he wants to do next but here he's probably where he was best. He gave Metallica a raw aggression that they just haven't had since he went

Lars is and always will be a bit of a moron but technically he's solid at this gig.

Overall, 10/10. I advise you watch this with some chilli Doritos because they are pretty tasty.
