was a fantastic film. As for the anime: great homage. It was very, very
different from the original silent film, but it was
still a great movie as well. I put the anime alone somewhere in my top favorite films of all time.
Some things I like about the anime:
Use of classic anime (Astro-Boy style). The characters are very cute looking as opposed to the badassery of modern anime. However, this does not
mean it is a children's movie. The film is quite mature and holds its own.
The environment is very believable. It's very bright and mentally stimulating, but also quite realistic.
The characters are real and I found myself hating certain ones and caring about others.
Overall, I highly recommend the anime, even if you haven't seen the original Metropolis
. I'm sure you can get it on Amazon or something, but
I watched it on Netflix Instant Play.
