5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Epic Nightwish, 3 Dec 2013
Nightwish as a band has been through a lot over the past 8 years as it's changed, vocalist, direction, changed course again, changed vocalist again and received a mixture of adoring praise and scathing bile throughout.

Yes "Metallica: Through the Never" has arrived and after much hype from a rabid fanbase and a certainly mixed response - I got my chance to see it and had a mixed reaction. This movie is essentially two parts - the live Metallica concert and the plot that surrounds, or rather is on the side of it involving a young roadie sent out on a mission to get a piece of kit - and getting caught in a vicious riot which he must survive.

Because for the most part the roadie's story is tagged onto the end and beginning of songs with a few exceptions, the two are better to look at as separate entities. The concert is brilliant, excellently well filmed and edited, filled with special effects and… Read more
