Very, very, very entertaining science-fiction film. But that is its greatest strength, and only. There a few missed opportunities for doing something more momentous. But if you're looking for an entertaining time, this is the thing.
Classically done, scintillating in ways and moving at parts, but they just happen to last too short. It's a glorified prologue made into a two-hour long movie. Lack of thrills have to either lie with the limits of the story or that this film just really needlessly not be split into a part one and two.
Metropolis, once a sprawling epic drama of science-fiction, it shows its age today. The scope of great visual splendor and architecture are great, but are too few in between and only show in flashes of scenes amid-st a cacophony of a vague protagonist, a priestess character and collective enemy.
