Nothing like the first but still good in its own way.

"As a movie, Heavy Metal 2000 doesn't live up to the original 1981 movie. While the animation and voice acting (including Julie Strain, Michael Ironside, and Billy Idol) is superb, the movie feels like it's missing something. Heavy Metal magazine features multiple stories and therefore, the original movie's concept of having multiple interlocking stories feels more at home. However, this movie does adapt The Melting Pot story and I feel they did a decent job. Overall, the movie is fine, just nothing special like the original.
The DVD is a good pack though. There are a couple of features dealing with Julie Strain and the other voice actors. As well as an isolated music score, animation tests, trailers, and photo galleries. The only thing really missing is a commentary track.
Overall, this a pretty decent DVD package."
