Metallized film gives a light bluish look from the inside. Outside will be a highly reflective look and pending on the shade you desire it will look black. Metallized film is desired for the glossy, mirrored look.

One of the attributes of metallized film is it can take extreme climate changes and will hold its specs longer than a dyed film would. When the film fades it will turn yellowish and clear.
