Movie Reviews

Unique, with clever comedy for the style
Cheshire Cat | Lansing, MI USA | 07/06/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The catch point is that the comedy is slow to develop, though after it builds up the movie becomes quite amusing. A few scenes will get you to burst out laughing, but for most of the movie you will be waiting for the punchline. I'd recommend seeing it at least once though. Definitely low budget, but that does not detract from it at all."
"Great Carpenter First!"
Gregorypwilson | Syracuse, NY USA | 04/20/2010

"John Carpenter's 1974 sci-fi film features a group of
astronauts having mishaps and dealing with a talking
computer. Carpenter's debut film is great and this
dvd not only has good picture and sound, but 2
versions of the film and the trailer. Add this to
your dvd collection.

Not what it appears to be
Paul A. Hinkle | Kenosha, WI | 03/23/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"When I saw this movie, it represented itself to be almost a slapstick comedy or sci-fi comedy. This movie was absolutely terrible. The characters were poorly written and the dialog between the actors was horrible. The only part of this movie worth watching is about the last 10-15 minutes of the movie. Bottom line:

no action, no energy, bad movie."
