Jiggedy Jupiter and galloping galaxies!
4 April 2013 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Remember that 50s sci-fi skit in Joe Dante's Amazon Women On the Moon (1987), the one with the deliberately bad special effects, lack of scientific accuracy, space women in short skirts, and heroic but dumb astronauts? Well Beyond the Moon is just like that (the only thing that's missing is a pet space monkey), proving just as funny as Dante's spoofery at times, although never intentionally.

Pieced together from episodes of TV space series "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger," the film sees sexist pilot Rocky Jones (Richard Crane) and his goofy co-pilot Winkie (Scotty Beckett) being joined by beautiful blonde navigator Vena Ray (Sally Mansfield) for a trip to the planet Ophesia; their mission... to rescue Earth scientist Professor Newton (Maurice Cass) and his spunky young ward Bobby (Robert Lyden) who are being held by the Ophesians against their will.

Low budget and rather crude in its execution, Beyond The Moon offers unexceptional thrills and iffy special effects galore as Rocky and pals blast, punch and shoot their way through the galaxy, but the likable characters and hilariously dated trappings ensure that the whole affair has enough charm to prevent it from ever getting too boring.
