I watched Light Years (a.k.a Gandahar) last night. Very cool 80s "adult" animated movie in the same vein as Heavy Metal or Starchaser. This one was done by Isaac Asimov (yeah, the famous one), and stars Glenn Close as a voice-actor.
Some stiff animation, and maybe a little flat on the voice-acting. But if you can look past that, it's a VERY cool sci-fi story with some very imaginative animation. Also, there are a lot of blue titties everywere, so once you get past that shallow surface, you'll find a deeper a story, I promise.
A society that has lived in peace and paradise is suddenly invaded by "men of metal". They systematically and without a sign of emotion or remorse begin killing people.
A race that has long forgotten war sends out one warrior to find out why, and where these men of metal are coming from; his name is Silvain.
What he finds is strange a race of deformed people that have been outcast by his society, the very same society that experimented on them and made them this way; and as a result also have strange precognitive powers. They give him a riddle: "
"A thousand years ago, Gandahar will be saved, and what can't be avoided will be." ."
They then take him to meet the supposed leader of men of metal, who also turn out to be an outcast of his societies scientific experiments in the past. A very strange being known as "Metamorphis."
And finds a portal. I don't want to give away too much here, because it's one of those movies where everything clicks into place at the end.
Very cool movie. I recommend anyone that's into that "adult" 80s animation style, to definetly check this one out.
