Format: DVD
All comments and reviews on this film are about other versions of the movie. this includes the write-ups for the previous Kino Video release of this film, which is also for other crappy versions of this film. Epic fail, Amazon! The Kino versions are the only ones worth owning. As proof that the reviews on this particular item are crap, it has not even been released yet, as of this writing. This version include approx 20 minutes of recently recovered footage that was found in Argentina. Combined with the original orchestration of the movie, it is the must have version for TRUE fans of cinematic masterpieces, silent or otherwise. Check out company website for correct info. [...].

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Heather on Feb. 24 2005
Format: DVD
As other reviewers have noted, this KINO release is the most complete and restored version of the movie that exists. The storylines make a lot more sense, and the video quality is excellent. I have to confess that I miss the wailing rock soundtrack from the earlier, less complete version of the film. Overall though, the musical score fit the film quite well, and like everything else in this film, it was reconstructed to be as close as possible to the original.

The Complete Metropolis is astounding on blu-ray. The film's well-remembered portions are visually gorgeous, and while the more recently added 'found' scenes are noticeably lower in quality (due to long-term deterioration), it's all still very watchable. Also, the original score has been re-recorded in its entirety, completing this masterpiece to the best possible authentic restoration. Bonus features on the blu-ray include a documentary on the history of finding the lost footage, as well as an interview on the process, and trailer. Highly recommended for film historians and enthusiasts.

I've been waiting for this DVD for years. If you've seen this rendition (Moroder's) of Metropolis before than you need to get it on DVD. The modern soundtrack and colourization just breathes new life into this film classic. Love it! Remember, this is for die hard film fans only, if your looking for a good flick for a Saturday Night than move on, but if you appreciate film art, and can accept Moroder's re-sculpting of Metropolis than get this and enjoy it with some nerdy film fan friends, the post film discussion about Metropolis should be as engrossing as the film itself

I know the purists out there will prefer the original 1930s version, with subtitles. But this too now has a cult following, and most of the songs are listenable and a few are noteworthy. This came out after Moroder co-produced the Cat People soundtrack with David Bowie. Some of these iconic stars were Freddie Mercury-Pat Benatar-Adam Ant-Bonnie Tyler-Loverboy-Jon Anderson-Billy Squire. So pretty serious talent pool. Enjoy this trip, took me back to my youth...those were the days.

I try to view all of Fritz Lang's films. I've seen it a couple of times. This movie is a great existential. Moralizing; and compelling story telling. I really admire Fritz Lang's artistry and vision. The remastered picture quality was also very good.

This is the review that [...] gave to The Complete Metropolis:

"This updated DVD edition of Metropolis features the 2010 restoration version licensed by Transit Films of Germany, comprised of all of the known surviving footage from this crippled masterpiece. With the addition of 25 minutes of footage found in a worn 16mm reduction negative by the curator of the Buenos Aires Museo del Cine in Brazil in 2008, this home video edition now contains the most complete version of the film since its Berlin premiere in January 1927.

The film is presented with the original Gottfried Huppertz music score, performed by the Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra, Berlin, as conducted by Frank Strobel.

Among the supplementary material is “Voyage to Metropolis,” a 50-minute documentary on the production of the film and its modern restoration, and an interview with Museo del Cine curator Paula Felix-Didier.

For those who have not made the jump to Blu-ray Disc, this will be the finest edition of Metropolis available on home video for many years to come. We highly recommend this revised Kino International DVD edition for your collection."
