Ok Metropolis has been rehashed several times over the last 2-3 decades and I know of at least 6 different versions. This Giorgio Moroder 1984 version is uniquely different and has music by Moroder, Freddie Mercury, Pat Benatar, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Loverboy, Billy Squier and Cycle V. The previous reviewer gave it 1 star which I think is very harsh. 1/5 you might as well not like any part of the film. But its Metropolis, one of the greatest scifi films of all time, its a marvel for its time (1926), just with different a music take and length than some other longer versions. Personally, I like it a lot, its different, dont get me wrong, I love the 118minute (2001 Extended Restored version complete with original German intertitles, Original Gottfried Huppertz score, newly arranged by Berndt Heller (2002 Murnau Foundation 75th Anniversary Restored Version)), 139minute (Director's Cut New Score), 150minute (2010 Version Reconstructed And Restored) and 115minute (1986 Filmmuseum Munich Edition) minute versions that have been released over the years. So I still give it 5/5. This is also the first time this 1984 Moroder version has been available on DVD here in the UK, it was last out on VHS back in the 1990s. The best format of this 1984 Moroder version comes out on steelbook DVD on 23 July and a standard DVD on 29 October. No Blu-Ray though strangely.
