In 1981, this may have been state-of-the-art animation, but now it looks rudimentary, clunky, and flat. The writing, likewise, is flat.

Initial segments have a boisterous blend of dynamic graphics, intriguing plot premises and sly wit that unfortunately slide gradually downhill.

Fantasies that are gratuitously sexist and Fascist (macho whoring and warmongering), and whose roots reach all the way back to post-hippie paranoia, feed the tangled plot-lines of a movie that... should disappoint even the teenage wet-dreamers.

...visually stunning some of the time and stunningly juvenile the rest.

Asked if I wanted to see it again, I figured, why not? I would have remembered if it was really bad. But memory does play tricks.

This is simply exploitation on a very juvenile level.

A wildly sophomoric and stupid cartoon celebrating gore, rape and bad music.

It's a mixed bag, but successful in a mindless, adolescent way.

You have to conclude that its makers should have got out more.

Wild animation, tons of blaring rock music, and fanboy wish fulfillment fantasies of the freakiest order. Good campy fun.

...An unabashed crowd-pleaser. Whenever possible, it goes for the fight scene, the sex joke, the jiggly breasts...

This animated movie based on the comics of the same title is fun once you accept it on its own terms, i.e., brainless and adolescent.

Heavy Metal despite all of its flaws and anacrhonisms, nevertheless represents something of a refreshment in today's sterile climate.

A bit of a mixed bag. Some eye popping animation, chock full of nudity, gore, and alien landscapes. The classic soundtrack is what makes it most worthwhile when the stories fall flat
