It's definitely watchable for fans that appreciate the exploitative pulp nature of the magazine set to excellent rock music. Full Review

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. Full Review
Time Out
Feb 9, 2006
Regardless of its dated stylishness (which still holds up remarkably well a decade plus later), Heavy Metal was a pioneering film in 1981 and remains a pivitol and infuential body of art today.
Jan 1, 2000
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Heavy Metal has been animated with great verve, and scored very well, with music much less ear-splitting than the title would suggest.

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

The film is a laudable attempt to present the world of cartoon movies to another type of audience. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Product Description:

Based on the eponymous underground magazine and original art and stories by Richard Corben, Angus McKie, Dan O'Bannon, Thomas Warkentin and Berni Wrightson, this groundbreaking cult classic served as a crossover introduction for many Americans to the aesthetic conventions associated with Japanese anime. This unique collection of six animated stories are all linked by sequences featuring a fiendish green meteorite that claims to be the cause of evil throughout the world. A combination of science-fiction, fantasy, horror, comedy, and sex against a pulse pounding heavy metal soundtrack with songs by Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Stevie Nicks, Nazareth and other 80's rock giants. The video contains a three-minute segment that wasn't included in the theatrical version of the film.
