I was lucky enough to see this version of Metropolis on the big screen at a local theater a few months ago, and it immediately became one of my favorite movies of all time. The visual effects, while out-dated now, still had the effectiveness of more modern movies like The Matrix. If you see one silent film in your lifetime, make it this one.

Metropolis is one of the defining moments of the 20th century. Beatifully shot, and choreographed. The visual effects set the standard and influences film makers even today. However, this wonderful film is done a disservice on this DVD. The screen is cropped at the top and left. It is so contrasty, that you can't see the faces or any of the elaborate and beatiful sets. Much of the impact of the coreography is lost. The music is nice, but it does not go with the picture. Were it not the only Metropolis on DVD I can find, I would have returned it. The print is very bad. I've seen better on VHS. Please tell me if you have found a good print on DVD!

    Silent sci-fi

    Definitely a must see for film buffs and sci-philes. The sets and costumes are confoundingly prophetic, as are the special effects. But, for all of the astonishingly advanced film techniques, one of the most crucial is missing, the sound.
