It would seem as though a concert film would be a tough act to sell, especially when you’re Metallica and not Justin Beiber or Miley Cyrus. Doesn’t it make more sense to see concerts at venues and movies at theaters? While that may be the case, most of time we find ourselves looking at the giant screen to the side of the stage than we do of the actual band. So why not pay to see a concert film? Luckily, the fun and immersive multi-sensory project, “Metallica: Through the Never,” brings a refreshingly new experience to the concert film genre: a plot.

Visual filmmaker Nimród Antal (“Predators,” 2010) joins forces with the world’s most voyeuristic head bangers (James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo) to create a groundbreaking 3D motion picture experience, “Metallica: Through the Never,” a music-driven feature film that combines live-performance footage with a narrative involving a roadie (Dane DeHaan) going on a mission for the band during a live set in front of a sold-out arena.

While the nonsensical subplot may cause filmgoers to scratch their heads, “Metallica: Through the Never” just may have you banging your head and chanting in the theater. Even if you’re not a fan of Metallica or metal music in general, audiences will appreciate the fluid camera work and the impressive musicianship that is on display. It’s an exciting thriller that is fitting for the IMAX screen and sound. Rock on!

“Metallica: Through the Never” is playing at AMC Highland Village 12 in IMAX 3D today.
