The amazing set designs, miniatures, special effects, and lighting make the stunning visuals and thematic imagery of Fritz Lang's German expressionist sci-fi classic the most captivating silent film that I've seen to date. Although some elements of the story don't always come together perfectly, the narrative does more than enough on its own to contribute to this being an overall fantastic watch. The movie rightfully still continues to be a must see for fans of science fiction and film history.

The ideology that mixes Christianity, Marxism and Nietszche is often confusing and/or off-putting. Overacting is a necessary evil of the period, but they get REALLY hammy at times. The head/hands/heart analogy isn't that inspiring. And there's a few little moments that are just silly. But goddamn, what amazing spectacle. Such astonishing set design, special effects, sense of scale and imagination. It's all just so impressive that whatever flaws there may be get swept away by wonderment and awe.

(2nd viewing) Ambitious would be a gross understatement; This is a timeless masterpiece about man's irrepressible aspirations and the drastic measures it's ready to undertake, as a underworld city lies on the verge of anarchy. The themes of exploitation and uprising are well balanced and still resonate today. The film looks great and the performances are inspiring. Waaaaaaaaaaaaay ahead of its time, I dare you to hate this film !

Considering that he would refuse to be controlled by or work for the Nazis, ending up fleeing, it seems notable that Lang's amazing film has a message about mutual subordination to national interest and unity in an hierarchical division of labour ('heads' and 'hands', working together) thus ending alienation and conflict between labour and capital, or the technocratic equivalent of such relations of command and submission. Which is to say, not a Nazi, but nonetheless politically an asshole.

I have a very soft spot for all tales of future dystopias, and I'm willing to cut such movies an awful amount of slack. But Metropolis, which may be the first such dystopic, is so good that no slack need be cut. The movie's visual style, the special effects, and the massive crowd scenes remain impressive today, 80 years after the movie was made. The fact that large parts of the movie are permanently lost does detract somewhat, but only in the sense that the movie could've been even better.

After making his Nibelungen duology, Lang then mines the old Norse/German myth for its social content - the idea of above- and under-ground dwellers - and transforms it into industrial-age sci-fi with a political tone. It's an incredibly ambitious work, an epic of colossal magnitude, but as another user wrote, its message belongs on a fortune cookie. Despite Metropolis' shallowness, it has a lot of mystique, mostly thanks to its arresting visual artistry which remains amazing even today.

A great film that lives up to its reputation. The middle is a little jumbled, which is not helped by the missing scenes, but the movie still works very well, both as a Sci-fi story and a morality tale. The visuals, both the set design and some of the shot selections, are incredible even without taking into account the movie's age, and it's a real shame so much footage is lost.

A great film that is way ahead of its time. After seeing this film, I see why it is one of the most critically acclaimed, and influential films of all time. I am absolutely astonished that a film like this was made all the way back then. The performances were great, the characters were great, but the way Fritz Lang envisions the future, and how repetitively the workers worked during the dystopian future are easily my favorite parts. Truly something to behold. Brilliant.

It's amazing how dated 1980s sci-fi can look today yet a film from almost 90 years ago seems fresh. Astonishing for the time and still impressive today. The cinematography and pacing is on par with much of modern cinema. The story is well-told and interweaves multiple threads in a way I'd assumed was a modern narrative trick. Very stylish throughout and every other scene had me recognizing shots that clearly inspired later movies. A timeless masterpiece.

Lang was constrained only by the limits of the time, and he pushed those limits as far as they would go in this film. While it still has several issues associated with silent films, it has many wonderful moments, which are made even more amazing by the fact that this was made before 1930. I would love to see the complete, restored version.

Working class revolution? Biplanes? Industrialization gone wrong? Robots brain transfusions? WHAT YEAR IS THIS? Oh yeah, it's 1927. I guess that's alright. I don't know, this movie is so classic that yes, it's a must see, but no, I didn't enjoy myself. This is a retarded criticism, and I'll be mocked for it, but here it is: it's horribly dated. By that I mean that it's kind of silly and cute to look at their obsolete concerns from the 1920s, but it's not all that interesting.

Technically impressive, but the story is hokey and clichéd (even for 1927), and the acting is very over-baked. The fact that it has remained somewhat enjoyable is remarkable for an 80-year-old film; however, by no means does it stand up to more recent masterpieces.

The powerful, who misappropriate technology and build their wealth on the backs of labor, shall see their sins visited upon their sons. Watered down into aphorisms, but still, an unexpected and ambitious synthesis of socialist and Christian motifs. More simply - and powerfully - a towering spectacle of early cinema: the effects, sets, and scale are stunning. Seeing the restored "complete" cut with live accompaniment by the Alloy Orchestra remains my favorite movie-going experience.

Defining sci-fi spectacle. Stunning effects & sets that really bring out the scope & weight of the setting like no film before or since. Somewhere between gothic expressionism & futuristic noir, the style is unique & influential but also a bit jarring at times (especially with the acting). It's wordy for a silent film but does contains some nice poetic visuals. The plot goes Disney at the end but beyond all the cheese the story is really dark, meaty & not quite as simplistic as some would claim.

Metropolis is a paradox: its message is simplistic, but there are so many layers operating simultaneously that lend enormous weight to a film that, by today's standards, is practically a blockbuster. The grand futuristic production design informed by divergent aesthetic movements continues to impress, and the conflicts between labour and capital, thought and action, science and humanity are evocatively realised and resolved in Lang's magnificently controlled yet poetic expressionist style.

I just cannot find anything to love in the Expressionist acting style combined with intertitles. I'd rather they just cut to the intertitle the moment someone starts speaking, rather than showing the actors gawping like goldfish. It harms the pacing substantially, in my book. Apart from that it's a pretty impressive film with amazing visuals, sets and effects. The story is ok, although the ending drags on too long. Deserves to be seen, but I'm not in any hurry to do so again soon.

2002 version. Wonderful movie, way ahead of its time. The special effects, sets and sheer scale of Lang's vision combine to produce astonishing results. The acting ranges from convincing to comically exaggerated and the plot is not exactly subtle but it is a brave undertaking, with provocative themes, considering the era it was concieved in. All in all, a truly remarkable achievement.

It is very difficult to form one opinion about this silent classic as there are so many different restorations of varying lengths. I have a soft spot for Giorgio Moroder’s “eighties music video” version, even though (or because) it was only around 80 minutes long (and in colour) and undoubtedly less “authentic” than some others. Well, to be honest, it’s more than a soft spot: I think it’s affecting and great.

The 2010 restoration, which is supposed to be 98-or-so-% complete, makes it a full half hour longer than any other cut that's been available since the late 20s. And yes, it's an improvement on what was already an excellent film - the "new" material is in bad shape and doesn't look nearly as sharp as the rest of the film (which looks incredible), but there are several previously missing subplots, revealing character moments, thematic expansions and just... y'know, more Metropolis.

Although the simplistic plot and unbelievably overdone acting prevented me from enjoying "Metropolis" for the masterpiece it -probably- is (the cheesy 80s Moroder soundtrack might have done something to do with it too), I couldn't help but admire Lang's ambition and his film's seminal visual achievements. So yes, I can't say I was riveted while watching "Metropolis" but, if only for the technical advancements and sheer power of its scope, it was well worth a watch.

A fevered succession of allegorical tableaux. Some of the most impressively conceived and executed set design of the era. As to the actual allegory, its central call for "heart" or compassion is perhaps not so forcefully realized as its bitter depiction of a soulless modern existence. There's a lot to be said about the pervading theme of the cooptation of religion and political movements, though that part of the plot gets more than a little muddled by the involvement of a mad scientist run amok.

The sets are still spectacular, and Brigitte Helm is particularly great in her dual role as Maria and the android bearing her likeness. The story's odd combination of Christianity, Marxism, and Nietschze lends a lot of depth to the otherwise fairly straightforward plot. Aside from the last ten minutes, which are a bit too neat, I was as enthralled watching this as I've ever been by a film from the silent era. The 2010 restoration is also well worth the extended runtime.

An enjoyable and thought-provoking, if not rather blunt in today's day and age, film. I'll be honest and say that I have a very hard time sitting through silent films that last beyond the length of a short so I was a little bit bored. However I certainly appreciate, and highly enjoyed, the expressionism and wonderful special effects. Great for a film enthusiast but I highly doubt it'll entertain someone without a special interest in seeing this film.

A lot of allowances have to be made for some silent films, in particular the acting, and Metropolis boasts some of the most ridiculously hammy acting I've seen in any silent.

The third act is thrilling entertainment.

It's very much silent movie era overacting but there is some subtly to some of the performances as well that make those moments so special.

Gustav Frohlich as the main character is milquetoast. Brigitte Helm is boring as a human but as a fembot she's amazing. The set design is unrivaled. If we had to show aliens a representative film as an artform, this would be a top contender. Fav scenes: I like seeing the machines and the painted cityscapes.

I'm really having trouble rating this film. On one hand, it deserves at least a 14 for the cinematography alone. I've never seen such good composition in a film — every scene is like a photograph! The mise-en-scene is also exceptional, and the shots of the city are surprisingly believable. Sadly, much of the acting doesn't stand the test of time (the audience sometimes laughed even during the serious scenes), and the plot is too moralistic and tropey. Saw restored 2010 version @ PFA.

As a social/moral commentary Metropolis still holds relevance even today. Its message of technology and it's affect on our humanity has become the template of future science fiction films.

But when it picks up, and goes wild on themes and increasingly madder. The scenes with the large crowds were impressive and terrifying, the part with the kids was very tense. I was also impressed by Maria's physicality. A big break from stiff female roles of other movies: she would scowl and grin and contort in ways you rarely see

i couldn't handle the pace, with pauses to read what the characters are saying. Maybe when someone makes a subtitled version of this i can watch it.

There have been sci-fi films before Metropolis but judged by the influences and it's relevance still today it can be said that Metropolis is the father of sci-film cinema. This film covers multiple familiar areas of sci-fi genre showing entire view of a society of the future, with brilliant visuals of flying transportation devices of the future or manufacturing of a human-like robot. Brilliant and memorable.

There are some gorgeous visuals in this film, and it's historically super important for its influence on the genre. However, I can't honestly say I really want to watch this film again, hence the somewhat low score.

Hard to rate, can't compare it to annything, its just a classic seen in context.
