Metropolis: based on drawings from 1949, which were based on Fritz Lang’s epic silent movie –  the connection is pretty tedious, and basically boils down to imagery, homage and a lot of fade to blacks. The end product is a strangely watchable blend of classic anime, some basic 3D graphics and one of the most mis-matched soundtracks in cinematic history. It’s definitely great to watch, especially the background, but the story’s pretty rubbish. I remember being amazed by this several years ago, but on re-watching it can’t really see what the fuss was about. The super epic ending definitely saves the film, music n’all. Don’t go out of your way to see it, but if it lands in your lap, do it.

Score: 6/10

    Aw man, I fuckin’ love this movie. Love the soundtrack too. Kind of slow, but beautiful to watch and a totally awesome remake, even though I still need to get around to watching the original. Gotta review this one myself.

      You TOTALLY have to check out the original… considering it was made in the 1920s it’s phenomenal!!!
