Review: Heavy Metal 2000 (film)

Alan P. Scott - Rants - Reviews


"Death to all carbon-based life forms" - or maybe just the ones responsible for this movie.

I watched it so you don't have to. This followup - not, apparently, intended as a direct sequel - to the 1981 animated feature Heavy Metal is so bereft of sense from start to finish that its release shouldn't have been just direct-to-cable but direct-to-landfill. The only thing that connects HM2K to its parent is the name - it's as if the original had been carjacked, and almost everything that made it worth watching was stripped from the wreck before they let you see it:

Bottom line: the original was fun, and this one's NO FUN.
