After hearing all sorts of hype for Heavy Metal
over the years, I finally decided to sit down and give it a chance.
Needless to say, I wish I hadn't — aside from the music, there's nothing noteworthy about the movie, unless you're a teenager who thinks boobies and drug jokes are funny. The segments vary in quality, but even the best ones ("B-17", "Harry Canyon") are rather forgettable. The choppy animation doesn't help things, either, making most of the segments feel like something Filmation would do after hours.
It's not that Heavy Metal
is a bad
film, but it's primarily an overhyped and forgettable one.
