Time Out says

Among those listed in the credits are a handful of collaborators whose reputations should be rescued from the cosmic junkheap this deserves to rust on - notably writer Dan O'Bannon - but the collective animators of this dopey Disney parody (reportedly 1,000 artists working in five cities simultaneously) still have a lot to answer for. Fantasies that are gratuitously sexist and Fascist (macho whoring and warmongering), and whose roots reach all the way back to post-hippie paranoia, feed the tangled plot-lines of a movie that, given the orchestral overkill and surprisingly low profile of heavy metal music, should disappoint even the teenage wet-dreamers it's aimed at.

This was a great movie but what happend to the double upercut with out that one move that was tought to Atom. Atom clearly won the fight and the upercut would have been the perfect ending

Formal de Hyde

I think the reviewer rather missed the point, this film is related to Heavy Metal comics--not music! As such it does very well, bringing the artwork of the comics to life in a very convincing way and is, I believe, very amusing. Clearly if you choose to take it seriously you could criticise away, but really--to accuse it of fascism seems a bit childish. I would recommend this to anyone...
