4.0 out of 5 stars Dicotamy Oct. 13 2009
What a strange contrast between ultra-real looking environments with ultra-stylized Disney like characters who are going around trying to destroy the world and kill one another.
Its like Bamby meets Reservoir Dogs (almost). I still like it, but mainly because of the feel of the city that the story takes place in. The feel of the layers and the different people that live in the different sections makes the city seem possible. It feels real, it looks lived in, the plot is great! The only thing that wrecks the whole thing is the look of the people. They are too fake looking, too childish. If they did a remake with some better looking characters it would be almost perfect!
Still worth a look if you are a fan of the original movie by the same name and/or a fan of anime.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best movie ever! March 9 2003
By Tagarth
This is by far the best Movie I have ever seen. Osamu Tezuka (Forgive me if I spelt it wrong) the original writer of the comic (And also for Astro Boy) is the grand father of manga (Japanese comics), Metropolis being one of his earliest works. This movie doesent shove Disney, it blows it to Kingdom come.
Animation: 10 stars
Music: 10 stars
Story: 10 stars
Perhaps you think I am I bit over board in my review, but this truley was the best movie I have ever seen. Rent it, buy it, tape it. Do what ever you can, you must see this movie. Maybe not young children (Violent scenes, but no sex).

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own For Anime Lovers Dec 29 2002
Osamu Tezuka wrote "Metropolis" prior to the huge success of his Astro Boy manga and the hit T.V. series that followed. Tezuka never completed "Metropolis" to his satisfaction but it has now been brought back to life by Katsuhiro Otomo (creator of "Akira") and Rintaro (from the Astro Boy T.V. show). A detecive, Shunsaku Ban, and his nephew, Kenichi (both are in the original Astro Boy manga), travel to the tri-level city of Metropolis in search of an organ smuggler. Their search takes them much deeper into the heart of Metropolis than they ever thought. The powerful Duke Red has created a superhuman android through which he will be able to control all robots. This android is in the form of his deceased daughter Tima. However, before she is completed she is lost in the labyrinth beneath Metropolis and meets Kenichi. What follows is a story of innocence betrayed by corruption and the ironic justice that must follow.
There are wonderful backdrops throughout the whole movie. Many of these were created using C.G. but are flawlessly integrated. The characters are drawn in that typical Tezuka style and any Astro Boy fans will love little camios by Tezuka's regular "actors" such as Lamp and Kim Sankaku.
The plot is intrigueing, the visuals are great, and there is a lot of social comentary thrown in. All in all a fantastic movie for any anime fan and a good intro to anime for those not familiar with the genre.
