"I don't know what made me search for any Metallica dvds (since I own all of them), but I did the other day. To my suprise I saw this new dvd, which sounded very interesting to say the least. I ordered my copy and just recieved it today. The whole dvd is a documentry done by some random guy. He interviews and talks with fans. Only for a few minutes, if that, does Metallica appear in the video. I couldn't even bare to watch the whole thing so I kept going back to the menu to go to the next chapter, but I encountered the same bordem over and over. If I would not recommend this dvd to anyone."
True fans- Skip this DVD

"This DVD is nothing more than drunken, overly aggressive, ignorant fans at concerts. These people are the reason that concerts aren't as enjoyable any more. As for the "Host" of this disaster, this guy needs a razor and a shower. The shots of James drunk outside of a club were just unneccesary in light of his new sobriety. You can tell that this was an "unauthorized" biography, if it could be called that. The scenes with the host "interviewing" a couple of fans looks so staged it is pathetic. I have been a fan of the band since '86 and own every DVD Metallica has put out. The only reason I give this 2 stars is because it IS about Metallica, and that is the ONLY reason. True fans should skip this and stick to the authorized DVD's the band puts out."
Leave this one on the shelf

"I got this from a discount store, very cheap (less than what it costs with shipping and handling online here), and I really wish I had the money back. It is a underground documentary that that is supposed to be focused on the fans of metallica, trying to be heavy metal parking lot. However, this is a far cry from it. The folks this movie shows are either tweeking on meth or too drunk to carry on a meaningful conversation. After the first two interviews with drunk people, the novelty wears off, and there is no funny left. Sure there are a few appearences by big stars such as Rob Halford, but not really worth puchasing this disc for. There is no insight, nor redeaming quality this movie. It is almost insulting to Metallica and their fans, and me being one a fab, wish they would have had a bigger cross section interviewed to show how broad the fanbase is, and how productive and insightful we can be Let this movie sit on the shelf."
