How good this is to you will depend on what you ...

How good this is to you will depend on what you want or expect from it. I'd seen clips and thought the concert footage looked great and was kind of hoping you could programme it to play whatever way you wanted; movie/concert, concert only, movie only.
It doesn't but that's just as well; after a few songs the concert doesn't feel like a concert; it feels staged. Still looks and sounds great, but just not like a real concert. Too staged, somehow.
The movie segments, though kind of meaningless and 'well why's that happening?' are really well shot, and a well mixed into the concert footage.
The overall effect is that it's a ninety minute music video, rather than a movie, a concert, or even a combination of the two.
It felt like it was their way of doing a Greatest Hits, and on that level, it's pretty good - enjoyable, even. If I want to watch the Metallica concert experience it won't be this I watch, but that said, I'll certainly watch it again.
