I was and still am a big fan of the original Heavy Metal film - great characters and memorable scenes. This movie I am affraid, missed the mark, which is a shame as it could have been a good film, if they had taken a little more time (and perhaps had more money spent on it). The voice acting cast are good, but the characters are forgetable and the plot seems a little tired. Perhaps if they had stuck to the multi-story format (like the 1st film), it may have been an equal. All in all, I would not recommend this film - try and watch it online or on you tube, as it is a very poor film.

No one should expect stunning cutting edge animation from a film like this, having said that it`s not has bad as some I`ve see it is what it is a no briner. Just a cheap bit of blood and boobs fun just like the last one it not art it entertainment.By the way it was £5:99 with P&P for the Region 2 PAL one when I got it which is £70 now no way would I pay that what a rip off.

Another misogynist boob fest of a heavy metal sci-fi cartoon from France of all places. Clearly designed to appeal to the US market.

The animation is poor, the characters purely one dimensional and the plot (to speak of) is so poor it could be written on a bus ticket.

Sticking with the animation, it's clearly running at 15 fps and offers little or no true perspective. Nearly every scene resembles a flat landscape. So when the terrible CGI turns up later, it's true 3d perspective so jars with the background that it looks like its been glued on top (which electronically, it has).

Then you look at the content. I think the cover design speaks volumes. Clearly space is populated by low life sex starved men and bouncy chested amazon type women. So think teenage male fantasy, and you'll be in the right ball park.

Worst of all, Michael Ironside provides the voice of 'head loon' and he's not even got any good lines.

This is a terrible film, made cheap and with no discernable talent or wit.

I didn't like it, in other words.

HASH(0x874f542c) out of 5 stars Good job of craftsmanship- and totally forgettable 26 Feb. 2004
By OAKSHAMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I'll give you a measure of how forgettable this film was- I bought the new release of the original Heavy Metal and Heavy Metal 2000 at the same time. I found myself remembering almost every scene in the original movie, even though I hadn't seen it in over 20 years. Then I watched HM2000. About halfway through I vaguely recalled that I had seen it before, but there wasn't one single scene that I clearly remembered- and I probably only saw it about three years ago. It was that forgettable, that ordinary.
Don't get me wrong; this isn't necessarily a bad film. The animation is very well done, very slick and seamless. The writing and voice acting is competent and professional. The sound track is certainly better incorporated into the animation and story than it was in the original. Everything was competently done, it was just.... ordinary. Nothing jumped out at you. It was like a Saturday morning cartoon episode- just with a little more violence, and a lot more animated nudity (animated nudity- I mean what's the point?)
Personally, I'd save my money and buy the new release of the original Heavy Metal. Sure, the animation looks crude by today's standards- but it was done the old, time-consuming, expensive way of drawing one cell at a time. The original was also crammed full of a variety of different animation styles and story lines. Perhaps that was because it was the first big budget science fiction animated feature and the people involved had so much enthusiasm that they tried to do too much. In contrast, I don't think anyone got too enthusiastic about this film. Sure, they did a solid job of craftsmanship, but where is the originality, the fire, the spirit? Kind of reminds me of the original heavy Metal magazine, it started out fresh and new and just slowly petered out to nothing....

HASH(0x874f5480) out of 5 stars A sad attempt at a sequel 7 July 2001
By CeeTee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I have been a reader of HM magazine since I was a boy. I was and still am a great fan of the first film. HM2K is a big disappointment for me. Instead of offering some of today's best sci-fi writers an opportunity to contribute a compilation of short stories for the new film, the film makers went with a poorly developed feature length tale that is as predictable and boring as a merry-go-round at the county fare. Despite the aid of modern computers the animation lacks in style and detail as compared with the original film. Even the music is poor this time around! The first film was a successful attempt to translate the style of the magazine to the big screen. HM2K is clearly an attempt to provide the publishers wife (Julie Strain) with star billing in her own film. Trust me on this one......THIS MOVIE BITES!!

HASH(0x88a2e33c) out of 5 stars We've already seen this movie... 31 Oct. 2002
By J. Ruth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Watch the last segment of the original Heavy Metal called "Tarna" instead. The plot scheme of HM2K is lifted directly from that. They took a tight short story from one film and stretched it out needlessly here.
The details have changed, but it's still the same story.
The same major plot points exist: "Joe Nobody" encounters weird green object that turns him evil. Newly evil bad guy slaughters docile people without warning. Babe in high heel boots hunts him down for payback. Bouncy cleavage shots ensue.
Don't get me wrong, I dig the cleavage... but no one actually got down and dirty. Onscreen nudity without sex = BORING.
Several scenes were torn DIRECTLY from the original movie's "Tarna" segment. Why do angry babes bent on revenge always catch the bad guys drinking at some dive bar?
The one scene that brought home the lack of originality was when our heroine FAKK2 takes a dip in a pool and gets dressed in a leather bikini to do battle near the end. It was a shot-for-shot remake of Tarna taking a dip in a pool, then dressing in a leather bikini to do battle in the original movie. I do not exaggerate, they both put on their Victoria's Secret battle gear the SAME WAY. That would have been fine if this was a true sequel connected to the previous story.
But this is not the case.
HM2K is boring. The attempts at jokes all fall flat. You can get more bawdy humor from an episode of South Park on TV. The action scenes are clunky. The ... shots do nothing to stir the libido. There are many other faults, but the main problem is that someone thought this was a great idea and decided to waste their money to make it.

HASH(0x874f5708) out of 5 stars Bonus stuff way cool, but the film itself STINKS!! 25 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The story of this film would have been better had they used the so-called film adaption of the summer 1999 magazine...when i read that i was blown away and couldn't wait for the film to be released. Now i can see why this film was never released theatrically. The 2D Animation reminds me of saturday morning cartoons.. The 3D animation for the spaceships doesn't blend well with the 2D stuff. What's with all the fade to black after every other scene ? Felt like i was watching something on tv with the commercials missing. Music snippets didn't last too long.. all around crap... I love the sndtrk... I still buy the magazine... And yeah I own the DVD and wouldn't give it up. Heavy Metal collector the last 15 yrs. the 1980 film was by far better

HASH(0x878e5a38) out of 5 stars This Movie Reeked! 25 Jun. 2002
By Sal Paradise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I really tried to like this movie since the first Heavy Metal was favorite in my household along with a more obscure Rock & Rule movie which really no one has seen but me and other weird people. Anyway, the plot is almost non-existent like in the Fast and the Furious but I can at least I can that movie without feeling nausated not so for Heavy Metal: FAKK2... Julie Strain looks great as animated "shero" unfortunately she doesn't get naked but only once and that's when she first tries to kill Ironside's voiced antagonists. I've forgotten the character's name because he made that much of an impression on me. Infact I've forgotten all of the character's names and all I can recall is the bloody fight scene towards the end as the bad guy was about to enter this temple and get some water so that he could live forever or some such nonsense and they were using swords and bows and arrows. Yeah, this takes place in the future...okay what's with the swords? Oh and the monk turning out to be the REAL bad guy at the end...Gee I wasn't expecting that.
The first Heavy Metal was more of the rock opera and certainly enough adult situtions to keep even the lowest male life form interested but this sequeal to the classic seems like a rush job like getting a small Healthy Choice Meal after a long day of playing flag football when you were expecting maybe a Swanson's Hungry Man. Don't even this stinker. Though I must admit the little rock dude was cool.
