    Oh dear. It only takes one minute for me to realize just how bad this movie is. At first I thought it was the Gargoyles cartoon from the 90s but the part I saw had blood (color looked more like mixing mud wine). Too violent for Disney lol. With that small amount of movie that I saw I couldn't believe this came out in 2000. The animation looks like it could pass as a low budget ripoff movie from the 90s.

    Not a great move. And not a family movie. This is an Adult movie that was based on a graphic porno fantasy magazine by the same name. And it't a perfect omage. For those who never saw a copy, Heavy Metal was an adult graphic version of the old scifi digest Magazines that were popular in the early days. Each magazine had several short adult themed scifi comics, that were penned by different artists ever time. The stories were wild, dark, often with graphic sex, and very different from one another. Unfortunately, people today don't seem to understand that this genre was a borderline porno mag. And it's exactly the kind of story that the mag had. So with that in mind, this movie is exactly what it should have been: Dark, crazy, filled with dark sexual imagery, and not really easy to watch. So i think they nailed it exactly.

    A wild and crazy adult oriented animated film with very little to do with the 1980s original. I still enjoyed it for what it is. Voice work from Micheal Ironside and Julie Strain holds up. CGI is sparsely interlaced throughout the animation but it can be a but heavy at times and can look dated. Great soundtrack.

    Not as sexist as the original but that doesn't make it good.

    I was recently disappointed when I rewatched the original "Heavy Metal" film and I'd never actually seen this direct-to-video sequel before, but I again found myself disappointed. First, I was disappointed that this was not an anthology film like the original, and instead is one full-length story, which isn't really a bad thing, but wasn't what I was expecting. My second disappointment was with the film's rampant misogyny. This was the main detraction from my recent rewatching of the 1981 original film. I was thinking that a follow-up film made 20 years later might instead focus on science fiction and less on buxom ladies in various states of dress, but that is not the case. The film is based on the comic "The Melting Pot" by Kevin Eastman of TMNT fame, Simon Bisley of 2000AD fame, and Eric Talbot. The story involves a Julie Strain voiced character avenging the destruction of her home world and also rescue her sister from a smarmy villain voiced by Michael Ironside. And this is all the fault of the Loc-Nar, the evil storytelling orb from the first film, when a shard of it is discovered. Billy Idol is the only other well known actor in the film. And heavy metal music is, of course, prominently features on the soundtrack. An extra half star for Monster Magnet, Queens of the Stoneage, Bauhaus (not heavy metal), but the rest of bands I didn't really care for.

    Unlike its predecessor, it only tells one story, and by the time this came around nothing in it was impressive, as anime like Akira&GitS easily make this seem like an R-rated Disney cartoon. If you're looking for a 'true' successor to the original heavy metal, I recommend the Animatrix.

    Why? Bad music, bad acting, bad story, bad animation. Cheap.
