Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 09/12/2013
"[A] full-throttle expression of rock & roll anarchy."
Variety - 09/11/2013
"Covering more than three decades of Metallica history....A definitive document for fans."
New York Times - 09/27/2013
"Lars Ulrich, the drummer, is still a kinetic master of tricky time signatures, and his partner, the singer James Hetfield, bellows with undiminished authority."
A.V. Club - 09/26/2013
"THROUGH THE NEVER crosscuts between the band's performance and a fictional subplot in which a roadie braves an urban wasteland during an epic battle between anarchists and riot cops. These scenes are muscularly staged by Antal..."

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A gigantic spectacle, a virtual-reality experience that is both ridiculous and sublime, sometimes in the same moment."
A young Metallica roadie named Trip (Dane DeHaan) embarks on an apocalyptic journey through a decimated urban landscape as the band plays to a sold-out arena crowd in this high-concept concert film from director Nimrod Antal (PREDATORS). As the band takes the stage before thousands of screaming fans, Trip is informed that a driver tasked with delivering a crucial item has gotten stranded on the other side of the city. It's his job to recover it, but getting there won't be easy because as the elaborate concert gets underway, rioters and police begin clashing in the streets. The city is burning, and a mysterious, masked figure on horseback is thriving on the chaos. When Trip incurs the wrath of the ruthless, hammer-wielding psycho and his marauding gang, he realizes that he may not live long enough to complete his mission. Meanwhile, the show must go on, and Metallica thrills the crowd with a thunderous collection of classics that include "Creeping Death", "Ride the Lightning", "Master of Puppets", "Battery" and "Enter Sandman.
