Critic Reviews for Saturn 3
This movie is awesomely stupid, totally implausible from a scientific viewpoint, and a shameful waste of money.
For all its flaws -- and most of the flaws involve the cast -- and the fact that we're seeing a shortened version of the original movie, Saturn 3 is still something of a major achievement.
It's easy to see why Saturn 3 has achieved a certain type of cult appeal over the years- it has an incredible cast, an interesting killer robot running amok, some cool ideas, and a beautiful score by famed composer Elmer Bernstein.
Saturn 3 can be beautiful and impressive in scope, ambition and design but it's almost impossible to watch Saturn 3 without thinking of how much better it could have been and might have been had the film been better executed.
An unfocused and dull meshing of ideas that never add up to a coherent or riveting science fiction thriller.
Audience Reviews for Saturn 3
Or Frankenstein In Space! Despite the number of A-listers working on this what we get is simply a poor effort all round, but I'd start with a weak story first.Worst than some fan made Youtube efforts I've seen ... by far.Either give it a pass or light up a joint and have a few this.
Fond memories of this movie. Actually, any science fiction around the late 70's to early 80's was seen as a continuation of the Star Wars exciting momentum. Re-watching with post-ROTJ blues, Saturn 3 seemed confined to a single base, with a junky robot and embarrassingly acted. The story is a shambled mess. The future technology presented now seems clunky. Harvey Keitel plays a cold snake character. Farrah and Kirk's relationship seems a bit awkward; she was so smooth and young and he was so old and wrinkled. I noticed the lack of incidental music. Most impressive was the set design of the remote space station.
I saw this on TV a long time ago, and I'd forgotten what it was about, but reading the summary on here it sounds like everyone falls in love with Farrah Fawcett in outer space, and that just sounds silly, no wonder I didn't rate it so high.
