Synopsis
This futuristic animated adventure is based on the graphic novel The Melting Pot, created by noted comic artists Kevin Eastman, Simon Brisley, and Eric Talbot and published by the creators of the well-known graphics magazine Heavy Metal. In a distant universe, the acronym F.A.K.K. (Federation Assigned Ketogenic Killzone) is used to designate places of extreme danger to all life forms. In a bid to keep out unwelcome visitors, the quiet civilization of Eden has designated itself as F.A.K.K., level two. However, a lunatic named Tyler (voice of Michael Ironside) invades Eden, and when he discovers Eden's secrets -- life-preserving if respected, deadly when abused -- he lays waste to the civilization, leaving behind only a female warrior named Julie (voice of Julie Strain). Julie sets out to find Tyler, determined to see the secrets of Eden returned to safety and eager to take her revenge for the slaughter of her people. Unlike the 1981 film Heavy Metal, Heavy Metal 2000 tells one long story rather than several shorter ones; in keeping with the first movie, it does features a soundtrack by a number of noted rock bands, including Monster Magnet, Pantera, Days of the New, Insane Clown Posse, System of a Down, Coal Chamber, and others. Heavy Metal 2000 was released in Europe as Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

I loved the original Heavy Metal, which sort of lurked in the underground. What I loved about it was that it was pretty decent animation with a kind of rough, hesher, for the rough edit crowd and it was 90% metal.

Now '2000' is sort of like a Saturday morning cheap American cartoon (I've seen better animation for less money) but with a few gratuitous sex and exploding brain scenes thrown in (not that interesting either)to make it a cable show and very little metal music to bang your head to. And the appearance of a B movie supergoddess? Geez, I'd never even heard of her and I'm usually pretty up on these things. I got more of a kick out of the extras then the actual movie, which is a piece of trash by the way. The extras are great: check out the commentary by the actress's husband, an ubergeek, billed as MR Julie Staines. You gotta laugh. She even as a protege. I'd head bang with her, (throw the goat, throw the goat!).
