Dark and queer enough to catch your attention but lacking the story power to hold it, Metropia is an aesthetic in search of an author.Movieline Full Review
The colors are mostly gray tones with the sharp, disturbing animation that works well for a thriller. However, Metropia is weighed down by a convoluted plot.The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
Technically innovative but narratively moribund, Metropia is all stasis and shadows. Perhaps Mr. Saleh could have listened to a lighter voice.The New York Times Full Review
The characters at first seem photorealistic, but their faces barely move. There are good, basic sci-fi ideas in the script, but they're not satisfyingly developed.Variety Full Review
