Critic Reviews of "Heavy Metal"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Initial segments have a boisterous blend of dynamic graphics, intriguing plot premises and sly wit that unfortunately slide gradually downhill.Chicago ReaderApril 16, 2007
Some of the animation is first-rate, particularly in the more modest comedy segments, and even the heavy set pieces have greater flash and dazzle than anything Ralph Bakshi mustered around the same period.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Fantasies that are gratuitously sexist and Fascist (macho whoring and warmongering), and whose roots reach all the way back to post-hippie paranoia, feed the tangled plot-lines of a movie that... should disappoint even the teenage wet-dreamers.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Heavy Metal has been animated with great verve, and scored very well, with music much less ear-splitting than the title would suggest.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Asked if I wanted to see it again, I figured, why not? I would have remembered if it was really bad. But memory does play tricks.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Regardless of its dated stylishness (which still holds up remarkably well a decade plus later), Heavy Metal was a pioneering film in 1981 and remains a pivitol and infuential body of art today.Cinema CrazedJanuary 13, 2016
It's definitely watchable for fans that appreciate the exploitative pulp nature of the magazine set to excellent rock music.Antagony & EcstasyAugust 05, 2014
Exemplifies the notion that the euphemism "adult material" almost exclusively denotes content which is chiefly of appeal to people other than adults.Common Sense MediaJanuary 30, 2012
In 1981, this may have been state-of-the-art animation, but now it looks rudimentary, clunky, and flat. The writing, likewise, is flat.CinePassionFebruary 12, 2010
Archly stunted and incalculably influentialFilm4March 10, 2008
You have to conclude that its makers should have got out more.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 17, 2007
...An unabashed crowd-pleaser. Whenever possible, it goes for the fight scene, the sex joke, the jiggly breasts...
