    This parody of 50's sci fi was a riot, very funny. Wait-it was supposed to be serious?

    Not a huge fan of sci-fi,but w/Cotten/Sanders,had to have a look.I say,it was a bit of a surprise,I missed a grad party to stay home to watch it.Ok,cheesy effects,some lame acting,but we're not talking the leads here,only secondary cast.Even they weren't as bad as some claptrap today.Hope the remake is as good as other Verne-related Journey flix,with Rock & Josh,hope Luis,too!

    I can't believe George Sanders and Joseph Cotton decided to do this movie. They must have been so in debt, or stoned cold out of their mind to approve this unbeleivable script. This movie should be placed in the space shuttle and dropped off on Mars so no one will ever see this joke of a movie. My rating is 1/8 of a star.

    "uncomfortable" cast is an understatement! furtive glances...inappropriate pauses...lumbering plot...clumsy speechifying...borrowed music & sound effects...ugh!!

    This is a cheap-looking and dated film and it's a shame it is featured on a Saturday evening when there are so many other, better movies that could be shown. This movie is no classic, not even close.

  • A Waste of Talent, Money and the Viewer's Time

    • 9/9/11

    Being a lifelong fan of sci-fi films of the 50s and 60s, I'm more than willing to overlook cheesy effects and ridiculous dialog. But this one's strictly for hunger, undoubtedly the worst adaptation of a Verne novel ever to reach the silver screen -- at least until recent years, anyway. Supposedly planned as a big budget production, the demise of its parent studio, RKO, during the filming meant that the movie ended up being shot on a shoestring in Mexico. And brother, does it look it. When the makers ham-handedly misuse the eerie "tonalities" Louis and Bebe Barron created for "Forbidden Planet" as sound effects for their Victorian spaceship, it only underscores the utter shoddiness of this film. The only reason I gave this dreary, cheap and unrelentingly boring movie one-and-a-half stars is its two leads.

  • well done classic , worthy of restoration

    with the greats joseph cotten and george sanders trading verbal barbs, and cottens typically smirky yet smooth subtle superior attitude, and with the early explosive scene of the real demonstration of cottens scientists nineteenth century discovery and industrial implementation of the power which will without question win wars, or potentially propel man to the moon, depending on the political and corporate wind of the time, whereupon witnessing the powerful demonstration of the heretofore unimagined potential of this seemingly monstrous yet vastly in-estimated achievement, the flabber-ghasted sanders, in his unmistakable classic british style, utters the exclamation- "great God forgive you- what have you wrought?! ", surely this film is worthy of further recognition, if not a full restoration. the antibellum timbred soundtrack and the patriotic bent detract overall, but fits with the setting and original spirit of the film. all that aside, a fair restoration will bring out the best qualities of this hidden gem.

  • a very good movie
