Really strange film. The visuals are amazing. Lots of double exposure and strange sets and unique (at the time and still) ways to overlap cinematography to create their desired effect. Loved the robot chick, loved the cinematography and scenery, but the plot itself is probably the weaker draw to me imo. Can't go wrong with this scifi effort if you like classic silent films.

A Fantastic Classic that has a deep story and a poignant message that still rings so true even today 85 years after it was filmed. The Art Deco sets are awesome and unbelievably magnificent / monumental and quite futuristic for the time period. Such a movie made today would cost a major fortune, be mostly CGI and nowhere near as good. It is Long, but worth watching every second of it, Twice! Reading up on this movie, in say Wikipedia or the Official web site AFTER you watch it helps you appreciate the vision of Fritz Lang. ........ 100/100

There are several versions of Metropolis, since some lost footage was discovered and each new version tries to be closest to what Fritz Lang intended based on what film was available. I'm not sure I'm too keen on the modern soundtrack with this, but Metropolis is AN INCREDIBLE FILM, completely ahead of its time, with sets and effects that I can hardly believe Lang was able to accomplish, and an amazing concept and story all-around. I LOVE the irony in the storyline, the political criticism, and even though Lang was obviously pointing out things that were going on in Germany at the time this film was made, it STILL holds up today. Absolutely amazing, check out the other versions of this film if you can find them as well. 5/5 stars from me!!

Colored and reconstructed with great 80's style music. One of the first thinking-mans/woman's-movie with a story whose poignant allegory evokes enlightened understanding, sometimes chilling, with great action, heart, and a happy ending. But isn't the story still about us? Aren't we now bulding our "tower" to the stars? And who are the "hearts" that bring understanding between the "hands" and the "heads" today? Certainly some must be those who contributed to such a great movie. Songs by Pat Benatar, Billy Squier, Adam Ant, Loverboy, Jon Anderson, Bonnie Tyler, Freddi Mercury, Cycle V, Giorgio Moroder, and others.

This film is awesome, it's meaningful, it's well crafted, it's socially aware. It's immense fun to spot imagery in it that would be used in all the best sci-fi films to come. That said you have to have at least enough attention span to read a short story just to be able to watch this one. If you don't have the mental capacity to pay attention without the film doing the equivalent of dangling keys in front of you evry 5 min., go watch a Michael Bay film and stop bitching. DISCLAIMER: I do understand that some people will not like 'Metropolis'. I just don't see a film version of 'tl;dr' as a valid argument for it. You knew it was a silent film made in the 20's coming here.

Fairly standard plot with hypnotic visuals and genuine innovation. Watch if you're ok with watching a silent film.

I'm sorry but just because this is an old film doesn't mean its good. From what i gathered before watching it, this was a classic, i had read hundreds of reviews majority of them worshiped this movie. Finally got down to it and it bored me half to death. Its typical of older films to be out dated and hard to watch as a new generation cast aside cgi and so on but this film is just pure and utter bullshit. Its about as interesting as a fart in the middle of a library. This film has only kept its title because people are brainwashed to think that this is art and that its fantastical when really it is just pure vomit. I am so thankful i was not born in the age of such diarrhea. -10 out of 10! Unless you want to jump on the rotting bandwagon and appear like you have artistic flare i would advise staying well clear of this muck!
