5.0 out of 5 stars One of the COOLEST B movies EVER made..... Feb. 2 2004
By ManRay
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was a favorite of mine as a young teenager! It still is a favorite of mine over 20 years later. Yes, the writing and story line are a bit strange, strained and simple. But this is due to much of the poor writing. But for being a low budget film, this movie is great. Its a cross between "Death Race 2000" and "Space Hunter". It was released in the theaters as a 3D movie in the early Eighties. The 3D effect is great!! By todays standards the movie truly shows its age. But you have to remember when it was made. Most of the technology of today hadn't even been invented yet! So it must be judged for what it is, a good science fiction story with some cool basic 3D special effects. IT IS A SCIENCE FICITON MOVIE AND STORY LINE. SO YOU NEED TO BE OPEN MINDED ABOUT THE STORYLINE AND POSSIBILITIES THAT SPACE AND SCIENCE FICTION OFFER.
The story line is rather simple.....Our hero (Jeffrey Byron) is a "Tracker" on an alien planet. Trackers are sort of like a cross between a police officer and an Army Ranger. He is searching for Jared-Syn a humanoid like alien who is set on taking over the known world. Byron comes upon the heroin (Kelly Preston) who's father was murdered by Jared-Syn's son and his followers. Upon being murdered all victims souls are stolen and stored in a huge storage crystal. Jared-Syn uses their souls as power for his evil plans. Byron vows to track down Jared-Syn and avenge Prestons fathers death.
This movie has a few know actors/actresses in it. Kelly Preston who married John Travolta. Then we have Tim Thomerson of the "Trancers" series fame and MANY MANY other B movies. Richard Moll of "Night Court" fame stars in this film also.
Just remember one thing......

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun late-nighter needs DVD treatment!!! July 13 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Help get Metalstorm to DVD! Write Universal, or Anchor Bay, or Blue Underground, or anybody! This great late-nighter is definitely in need for the digital treatment! Look, they put Spacehunter and Cherry 2000 on DVD!! And this movie is much more entertaining than them! I love the cheesy, goofy ending where Jared Syn is sliding down the time whirlpool that looks like he is going to the Land of the Lost or something! On my waiting list for movies to come out on DVD, this is right up there with "Night of the Creeps." Buy it if you can find it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Metalstorm: The Definitive Biography Nov. 15 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Metalstorm: The very word conjures up not only images of a groundbreaking film, but also memories of a lesson learned. A lesson, my friends, about life. "I have the power of the crystal!" shouts Jared Syn, in one spectacularly memorable scene.
Therein, perhaps, lies the secret to this film's enduring status in the annals of American film triumphs. Dogan, you'll recall, is searching for JS due to a violation of the peace treaty. This is sheer Americana, a rousing tribute not only to old western films but to old American frontiersmen themselves. Dogan's Davy Crockett is seeking out JS's Santa Anna in order to preserve the land. JS, however, injects a religious element heretofore unscene in other so-called "great films" like Star Wars, Road Warrior or Tootsie. The power of the crystal, though ill-defined, certainly trumps the wimpish "Force" from Star Wars. Man, have you thought about it?! Baal, while admittedly lacking any strong physical resemblance to his old man, represents both the biblical prodigal son as well as the figurative "son-who's-so-dumb-he'll take-a-knife-in-the-stomach-for-his-father-while-his-father-escapes-on-a-paper-mache-rocket-cycle" character made popular in the Hardy Boys series. Hurok, the one-eyed gentle giant and mental midget so easily duped by JS, Dogan and even the moronic Rhodes character, is our new Kissinger - I'm not sure why exactly. Some things in this movie are even beyond my capabilities. But it is the ending, perhaps, that has rattled the cages of so many of us for so many years. Recall the subtitle to this film: The Destruction of Jared Syn.

4.0 out of 5 stars THERE'S A STORM COMING! Aug. 18 2010
By The Critic TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've waited so long for "METALSTORM-The destruction of Jared-Syn" to finally be released on DVD and now that I have it I'm really disappointed with Universal Studios. I'm no expert when it comes to video transferring and restoration but I really expected a much clearer image from Universal. The video transfer on this DVD is filled with speckling, scratches and the images seem to be blurry and out of focus most of the time.

Maybe it's because this movie was originally presented in 3-D that the picture seems blurry and out of focus. Maybe the only way to correct it would be to present it the way it was originally filmed, in 3-D. I really wish that Universal would have taken more time and released "METALSTORM" in a two disc set offering both standard and 3-D versions complete with the glasses.

Another complaint I have is that there isn't a menu feature when you put the disc into the player. As a fan, you would think that this DVD would have some trailers, still gallery, commentaries or some type of bonus material; its bare bones people. I'm really happy to have this movie on DVD but this is really just another failed attempt from Universal Studios to release a Sci-Fi classic from the 80's as cheap as possible and cash in on its unsuspecting fans.

Welcome to the planet of Lemuria and the tyranny of its evil leader Jared-Syn. A lone space ranger named Dogen comes to the aide of a young woman named Dhyana whose father has fallen at the hands of Jared -Syn. Dogen promises to avenge her father's death and save her planet from the evil leader once and for all but it won't be easy. Standing in Dogen's way is Baal, the mutant son of Jared-Syn and the Cyclopean warlord, Hurok. Can Dogen save the planet from Jared -Syn and free its inhabitants of the evil that has been controlling them? You'll have to buy your own copy to find out.
