The Onion A.V. Club
Technologically, the film is impressive, and it readily overwhelms the senses with frenetic computer-generated activity, an apocalyptic grand finale, and a bombastic jazz score. But unlike its classic predecessor, it doesn't leave much in its wake but ringing ears and unanswered questions. Full Review

The New York Times
A hallucinatory tour de force of color, perspective and scale, virtually encapsulates the history of Japanese animation. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The story is compelling, but Metropolis is such a visual masterpiece, it's easy to get lost within its seemingly endless layers of graphic complexity. Full Review
Jonathan Perry
Boston Globe
Poetic, surreal, and curiously powerful. Full Review
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
By the time the explosive finale arrives (with a wistful Ray Charles crooning over shots of cataclysmic destruction, no less), you'll be hard pressed to name a recent film with this much action, pathos, and smarts. Full Review
