4.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but Ok September 10, 2004
This is an interesting show. This is right in the thick of the "Load" tour when Metallica were trying something different.

So What sounds pretty damn good and it's a good way to open the show. Right from that into Creeping Death which always sounds cool live. Then the boys go into the worst version of Sad But True they've probably ever done. I always skip this because it's just...eww. Ain't My Bitch sounds good live however, as do Hero of the Day and King Nothing. Then they go into a pretty bad version of One where Kirk misses the start of his solo and James sounds...not very good. Then, a nice little version of Fuel w/ alternate lyrics and as always, Fuel smokes live. Then a bass/guitar doodle of My Friend of Misery and Sanitarium into a very good version of Nothing Else Matters. Then Until It Sleeps comes in which I'm not a fan of personally, but it sounds good live. Then good ol' Bellz kicks in and gets the place jumpin'. Great live song and huge crowd pleaser every time. Then, Wherever I May Roam which is good live, but I'm glad it's not a staple anymore. Then...Fade to Black. A GREAT version of Fade to Black at that. Everybody nails their parts perfectly and the mood that is set is just awesome. Then they play the Kill/Ride medley, which consists of parts of Ride the Lightning, No Remorse, Hit the Lights, The Four Horsemen, Seek and Destroy, and Fight Fire w/ Fire. Then for the encore they come out with Last Caress into the first part of Master of Puppets, cutting out before the interlude, then segwaying into Enter Sandman. At the end of Sandman is where the "stunts" come in. Lots of pyro, explosions, lights cutting out, emergency workers w/ flashlights, and a guy on fire running across the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best concert DVD ever recorded July 25, 2002
Say what you will about Metallica, but one thing you can't deny is that they always put out the best home video releases, especially when it comes to them playing live. Cunning Stunts was recorded before "ReLoad" was released, and features the boys at their best. "Fade To Black", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", "Creeping Death", "Nothing Else Matters", "King Nothing", "So What", and "Sad but True" are all brought to life live great, but there are a few minor gripes. Kirk does mess up a bit on the solo to "One", and on some of the older songs (like the Kill/Ride medley) James seems like he's having trouble remembering his parts. But, the good outweighs the bad in the end, besides the great concert, the DVD features are outstanding, and the picture and sound quality can't be beat; this is how a concert DVD should be done. All in all, this is an essential item if your a Metallica fan, and it is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DVD I own! January 21, 2000
By pelfmon
Metallica, regardless what people may say, is the best band EVER. I can listen to every song they have put out. This DVD just shows how strong a presence they still hold on stage, where they make their home. James, Jason, Lars, and Kirk play harder than ever with each performance. Two hours into this concert these guys are still going stronger than ever.
This DVD just shows that Metallica is the best live band there is, and on Enter Sandman it shows Metallicas popularity as the crowd sings alnog word for word.
This will simply blow your mind away! The visuals are pure DVD quality and the 5.1 sound is mind boggling!

5.0 out of 5 stars To everyone that ISN'T a Metallica fan... June 2, 1999
By A Customer
First off, this concert DVD is for the fans. If you don't enjoy "mistakes" or "fun" on stage, then you might as well go buy Milli Vanilli on DVD. Because this is raw, concert, non rehearsed Metallica at it's best. There are PLENTY of songs on here that sound great [even if Hetfield screeches a few times, you try singing 3 hours a day 5 days a week for 2 years and we'll see how your voice sounds]. I love it. I've always been a big fan, and I've tried to see Metallica as many times as possible. To the fans, this is a great DVD. To people that expect a concert to be perfect, well you might as well just by a CD of Metallica because you're going to be disappointed.
Oh, and to the person that made the comment about the energy being "low" due to the "pause and comment" portions to the crowd, you've obviously never gone to a concert, because that's what a CONCERT is all about. Sure, they could have edited those portions out, but if you've ever seen them live, you'll realize what Metallica made this DVD for. For fans that CAN'T always go see them live. This DVD captures the TRUE concert feel.
And for the price, this DVD can't be beat. Plenty of songs, multiple camera angles, background information on the band and the concert setup, pictures taken while touring, and plenty of great loud explosions and pyro, just like Metallica has been, will be, and always shall be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where ever they roamed, they've now roamed to your home December 11, 2002
I'll be honest, I'm a fan of Metallica, I have seen them live many times, and I attended the tour this DVD was taken from at it's Albany, NY stop, I am also a techno-phile, this DVD is the best captured concert DVD I have ever seen, and lets not forget heard, the band sounds great, you can even hear James Hetfeild strain to hit a note every once in a while, the filming of this concert is incredible, at times, if you watch in the dark, it seems you're on stage with the band, gone are the over done MTV style edits like over-used in their concert film Live S*** Benge and Purge, the crowd as usual at a Metallica concert is amazing, they sing along when qued, and go wild for the better part of this DVD, as a Metallica fan, if I had a complaint, it is that unfortunatly, although there are over 20 songs on this DVD, Harvester of Sorrow and Unforgiven are not here, and Welcome Home (Sanitarium)'s opening is only played during an all to breif bass/guitar interlude, but other than those, the classics, and the new classics are here, be warned, this DVD was filmed before the realease of Metallica's Re-Load album, so you can't really complain about those songs not being here, but So What and Fuel from Re-Load are, Fuel is performed just as it sounds now, but at the time an untitled new song, there are even three songs in which you can choose from 5 different camera angles, the main angle, which is edited in the style of this DVD as a whole, the other angles let you follow 1 of the 4 band members as they perform, you see many things you would've missed, it would have been nice if you had this option through all the songs, but this was 1997, and it would have taken 3 DVD's to accomplish that, you would have to pay more, so take what what you can get, this DVD also contains a behind the scenes portion with the...
