Based on the classic comic created by Osamu Tezuka (ASTRO BOY), written by Japanese anime legend Katsuhiro Otomo (AKIRA) and directed by Rintaro (GALAXY EXPRESS 999), METROPOLIS is a spectacular film featuring stunning imagery and unforgettable characters.
In the industrial, tri-level world of Metropolis, Duke Red is a powerful leader with plans to unveil a highly advanced robot named Tima. But Duke Red's violent son Rock distrusts robots, and intends to find and destroy Tima. Lost in the confusing labyrinth beneath Metropolis, Tima is beginning a friendship with the young nephew of a Japanese detective. But when Duke Red separates the two innocents, Tima's life - and the fate of the universe - is dangerously at stake.
