Movie Reviews

Typical 50's sci-fi adventure for kids...
Mark Savary | Seattle, WA | 11/04/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A compilation of episodes from "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger", "Crash of the Moons" is a wonderful example of the kind of kids sci-fi show from the dawn of television.Two "gypsy moons" are about to collide with a planet, Opheish. The moons are populated, and the United Worlds sends in Rocky Jones and the Space Rangers to help. But the power-hungry ruler of Opheish, the evil Queen Cleolantra, will stop at nothing to have things her way. In this case, it means destroying the gypsy moons and killing everyone on them!The science here is not exactly up to date, but quaint nevertheless.Most of the cast surpasses the sub-par, cliche-ridden material, and offer up convincing characterizations. Richard Crane plays Rocky Jones with movie serial he-man gusto. Scotty Beckett, a former child star from the Our Gang series, plays Winky, the flight officer of the rocket ship Orbit Jet. Beckett is strangely effective as a sort of proto-Sulu, comfortably operating his rocket ship controls as if they actually worked. John Banner, forever famous as the bumbling Sergeant Schultz on "Hogan's Heroes", plays King Bavarro with a sense of fun, while Patsy Parsons' Queen Cleolantra is such a sneaky and conniving diva, she could probably have taken over "Dynasty" AND "Falcon Crest" without breaking a sweat.This is a fun time for fans of early sci-fi, and despite being edited together from three or four episodes, the story plays smoothly."
The apex of 50s space opera for kids

"I was a big fan of the "Rocky Jones - Space Ranger" serials as a kid. I watched them religiously on Saturday mornings. They were the epitome of campy sci-fi. They had cheesy special efects, and the "science" was mostly wrong, but who cares. They were and are a lot of fun, and the moral is "Be a good person and one day you'll be a space ranger.""
Fun to watch

"CRASH OF THE MOONS is a good old Rocky Jones adventure and it's fun to watch it. But be informed that it is recorded in the EP mode."
