  A masterpiece finally completed in HD!

| | See all eros1979's reviews (40)

I never thought that tecnology would ever make it possible bringing this masterpiece into our TV screens so beautifly edited and finally completed! The final pieces of the puzzle are here to show us the original and amazing work that Fritz did so many decades ago! It's difficult for the majority of people to see a silent movie nowadays but believe me, Metropolis remains a "state-of-the-art" artistic masterpiece which can finally complete your classic collection! Buy it and you will see the magnificence of these minds who were behind the cameras! The movie is the complete version, the edited image reaches the limits of perfection, the non-edited image remains unfortunately badly BUT SAVED!

  Not gaga over it

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (666)

Metropolis is so much part of our cultural lexicon now (the futuristic sets, the female robot, Queen rock videos) the actual act of watching the film itself is curiously unengaging. This is mainly down to some severe overacting (always something to be wary of in silent movies but particularly sidetracking here) and the overawed use Lange makes of his enormous sets and cast of thousands. It is however intriguing from a historical point of view. What 1927 German audiences must have made of its tale of oppressed workers rising up at a time when Hitler was cultivating the masses is probably its chief fascination.
