Review ...The story is told with enormous energy... The movie is so visually rich I want to see it again to look in the corners and appreciate the details... Metropolis is not a simple-minded animated cartoon, but a surprisingly thoughtful and challenging adventure.

Review ...If any two dozen frames of Metropolis--enough to fill one second of screen time--were hung in a gallery, the sheer visual density and sensory stimulus would be overwhelming. The effect of almost two hours of exquisitely detailed and remarkably varied cityscapes, rendered in a palette of colors and light effects that would make a live-action cinematographer or an Italian Renaissance painter weep, is exhausting and exhilarating. The dream world of Metropolis is so intricate, so sublime, that the ordinary world seems to be the one missing a dimension.
