Based on the fantastical illustrated magazine HEAVY METAL, producer IVAN REITMAN enlists the help of some of Hollywood's animation masters to create the otherworldly tale of a glowing green orb from outer space that spreads destruction throughout the galaxy. Only when encountered by its one true enemy, to whom it is inexplicably drawn, will goodness prevail throughout the universe. Richly and lavishly drawn, the vignettes of the orb's dark victories include the character voices of John Candy, Harold Ramis and a pounding soundtrack by Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Devo, Donald Fagen, Don Felder, Grand Funk Railroad, Sammy Hagar, Journey, Nazareth, Stevie Nicks, Riggs, and Trust. Highly imaginative and full of surprising special effects, HEAVY METAL set the standard for alternative contemporary animation. An intoxicating experience not to be missed!
This one is a very very mixed bag. Legend and nostalgia tend to give it a higher score than it deserves. Largely because it was the first time we ever saw something like this. Read morePublished 7 days ago by RoboGriffey
While it was enjoyable in Blue-ray, I found myself disappointed in the movie itself. It wasn't as compelling as I remembered it. Still a good deal though.Published 10 days ago by Russell D Wester
"Classic", the best word to describe this. Every time I see this, I wish I had an ol' school van to airbrush a scene out of this movie on the side of it. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Kikaida
Classic stuff from my childhood. Retro by today's standards, it was one of a kind in its time. Great nostalgia.Published 13 days ago by Douglas A. Sommer

None that I can determine, other than the 2008 version omits the second disc of bonus features, although it does include the 35-minute "making of" documentary.
