Based on the fantastical illustrated magazine Heavy Metal, producer Ivan Reitman combines original artwork and stories by five of the world's most respected adult animators to create the otherworldly tale of a glowing green orb from outer space that spreads destruction throughout the galaxy.

Richly and lavishly drawn, Heavy Metal includes the science fiction writing of Dan O'Bannon (Alien), the character voices of John Candy and Harold Ramis and a pounding soundtrack by Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Nazareth and many more.

Highly imaginative and full of surprising special effects, Heavy Metal sets the standard for alternative contemporary animation. An intoxicating experience not to be missed!

 A wicked animation film

| | See all Dantheking's reviews (63)

I didn't know what to expect when I first watched this. The stories were quite random but really watchable and the animation had a cool style. There's also allot humour in this which suites the strange characters and feel of the film and also nudity.
I liked all the stories but my fav would have to be the first one or the WWII which was quite creepy just a shame it never lasted longer. If you like anime or animation in general I would defiantly recommend this.

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

I watched this 'film' with no preconceptions primarily to set the scene for the sequel which I had heard rave reviews about. The film is actually a collection of short stories all well animated showing the result of normal people turning nasty under the influence of 'absolute evil'

The animation and voice acting is good which makes up for some of the lack lustre plots in the short stories. They are not all bad by any means and some are praiseworthy however by the end of the film I was left with a disappointed feeling. I then thought that maybe watching the film again would help but really could not gather up the motivation to do so.

If you want a well animated collection of stories full of sex scenes, top-heavy women, classic rock/metal and shameless delving into adolescent male fantasy this is for you.

 Great film, in regard to Dan O'bannon,,,

I loved this film as soon as i saw it. When i noticed that O'bannon was one of the writers i could see his influence on the Zombie plane story , simililar in its air of hopelessness and inescabability to O'bannon's 'Return of the Living Dead' . Buy that too !
