More Info:
  • Michelle Orange

    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.

    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.

  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Technically innovative but narratively moribund, Metropia is all stasis and shadows. Perhaps Mr. Saleh could have listened to a lighter voice.

  • Leslie Felperin

    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.
