Audience Reviews for Message from Space


A race of evil robotic samurai conquer a peaceful race of leaf-headed aliens, who send out eight magic space nuts to track down reluctant heroes to save their planet. Ridiculous and cheap Japanese space opera (with some American actors like Vic Morrow) rushed to market to capitalize on the popularity of STAR WARS; it's not quite as much fun as the synopsis makes it sound.
