Plot

Upon discovery of a shard of the Loc-Nar (the evil orb/glowing green ball of doom from the original movie), a miner named Tyler (voice of Michael Ironside) becomes possessed by an insatiable hunger for power and a thirst for immortality. On his way to a planet which has a fountain of immortality, Tyler makes a pit stop at F.A.K.K.² (Federation-Assigned Ketogenic Killzone) because its inhabitants carry some immortality water in their bodies. Tyler abducts a few people and kills the rest, but misses one: Julie (voiced by B-movie queen Julie Strain). She is described by Tyler as "a 6-foot bitch with a talking rock", the sole survivor enraged by Tyler's careless rampage. She vows to avenge her family and kill Tyler before he reaches the fountain—unaware that her sister Kerrie (Sonja Ball) is actually still alive. She is aided by a mysterious alien named Odin (Billy Idol) and Zeek (a.k.a. the talking rock).

TNMC Movies: Reviews: Heavy Metal 2000 (777 words)
Heavy Metal 2000 has been a labor of love for Kevin Eastman.
Currently editor of the sci-fi/sword and sorcery magazine Heavy Metal, Eastman decided way back in 1994 to make a follow-up to the 1981 cult classic of the same name, which has more than stood the test of time.
(by the way, what the hell is wrong with you?) Heavy Metal was a collection of six stories, tied together by a larger one having to do with a green ball that was "the sum of all evils".
