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.
