With its dizzying depiction of a futuristic cityscape and alluring female robot Metropolis is among the most famous of all German films and the mother of sci-fi cinema (an influence on Blade Runner and Star Wars among countless other films). Directed by the legendary Fritz Lang (M Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse The Big Heat etc.) its jaw-dropping production values iconic imagery and modernist grandeur – it was described by Luis Buñuel as a captivating symphony of movement – remain as powerful as ever. Drawing on – and defining – classic sci-fi themes Metropolis depicts a dystopian future in which society is thoroughly divided in two: while anonymous workers conduct their endless drudgery below ground their rulers enjoy a decadent life of leisure and luxury. When Freder (Gustav Fröhlich) ventures into the depths in search of the beautiful Maria (Brigitte Helm in her debut role) plans of rebellion are revealed and a Mariareplicarobot is programmed by mad inventor Rotwang (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) and master of Metropolis Joh Fredersen (Alfred Abel) to incite the workers into a self-destructive riot. A Holy Grail among film finds Metropolis is presented here in a newly reconstructed and restored version as lavish and spectacular as ever thanks to the painstaking archival work of the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung and the discovery of 25 minutes of footage previously thought lost to the world. Lang's enduring epic can finally be seen – for the first time in 83 years – as the director originally intended and as seen by German cinema-goers in 1927. Special Features: 150-minute reconstructed and restored 2010 version (including 25 minutes of footage previously thought lost to the world) Separate DVD and BD editions with wraparound embossed sleeve or Ltd Ed Steelbook Dual Format edition Pristine new HD transfer (1080p on Bluray) New 2010 symphony orchestra studio recording of the original 1927 Gottfried Huppertz score in

This is Metropolis, the novel that the film's screenwriter -- Thea von Harbou, who was director Fritz Lang's wife, and a collaborator in the creation of the film -- this is the novel that Harbou wrote from her own notes. It contains bits of the story that got lost on the cutting-room floor; in a very real way it is the only way to understand the film.

Advantages: Looks | Characters | Story Disadvantages: Don't Know At The Moment
...This is a review on yet another anime film, as I am doing an anime reviewing season, which is called Metropolis, which is set in the future where the mayor of Metropolis has created robots to do all the work around the city. Director Rintaro, which is not done many famous movies, but has certainly done a good job here.
The film starts off with a Private Investigator and his nephew entering...

Review of Metropolis (DVD)
Advantages: Something for everyone Disadvantages: Length
...?suite? a physical release in 2008, and had it come out as an EP entitled ?Metropolis, Suite I: The Chase?. With a modest story to tell about her beginnings, some may not expect very much from an actual release; in fact it?s more something with the power to shock the world with her wholly-original sounds.
Big Boi sits above a host of artists who all jumped-in to lend instrumentals to this genre...
Advantages: The fantastic graphics and speed Disadvantages: The music can get repetitive
...MSR- Metropolis Street Racer for the Sega Dreamcast introduced, to me, a new style of racing. The quality graphics, fast cars and superb sound make it feel as if you are inside the car.
KUDOS- This game brings with it a unique points-scorer in the form of Kudos. This means that you gain points needed for the next race or car varying according to your skill, style and penalties.
