The background to this concert film is that it was originally filmed live at Obras Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 9, 2005. As shown on the movie, there were a gazillion people in the audience. Clearly, the metal fans of Argentina, have been waiting in massive anticipation for this band to finally play live. They love it, they're singing along to every. Single. Song! Look at them mosh, look at them killing themselves to get a glimpse of the band. Megadeth, in 2005, was at the top of their game, as shown on this show.
What's nice here is that you also got some brief candid "backstage" of the band talking, playing acoustics in a park with fans, and doing promos prior to the show. The video and, especially the audio, is pretty awful in these segments, but you can't blame the source material that the film maker had to work with.
Highlight of the show was loud numbers like "Blackmail the Universe", "Wake the Dead", "Symphony of Destruction" and "I'll Be There". The latter is a particular special song for that night, because the original song (appearing on 1999's Risk) was inspired by the devotion of an Argentine fan. Subsequently Megadeth only performed "I'll Be There" in Argentina and Chile, so for true 'Deth heads, the CD, DVD, or Bluray is a must in your collection.
While the actual concert content is good, there are no special features (I'm not counting an alternative "audio mix" of "Symphony of Destruction" as a feature, which incidentally will play only in 480i). The other bad news is that because the cameras used were acceptable for the time period (in 2005), it is not shot in true high definition. Images looks soft and not as crisp and clear as some true HD films I've seen and I'm pretty sure this is just a direct transfer from the original 2007 DVD release, but with the image scaled up to 1080 (interlaced). Still, given between a DVD and Blu-Ray, BD is the way to go, it's like night and day.
I'll recommend this release, if you don't already own the DVD, go with the Blu-Ray, which was released July 12th, via Image Entertainment. If you're looking to upgrade from your DVD, this is a hard sell... Still retails for $19.98, which means you can probably get it discounted online.
