When Rocky and Winky were traveling toward the Space Station to warn them of the "Atmosphere chain", they asked the Space Station's radio operator to call back the ship that had recently left. The radio operator indicated that they were out of radio range, yet Rocky was able to talk to them, supposedly from further away. See more »

Well this film that is actually a three part set of episodes from an old science fiction television show is not all bad. It has somewhat impressive effects for the time and the budget. It also had an assortment of cute gals from the somewhat evil, but not totally queen of the doomed planet to the lead blond. However, these two things cannot counteract the fact this show turned into movie had one to many rockets taking off and rockets landing! How many rockets must we see land and take off to get it? Maybe this was the thing they liked back in the day, but today we call it extreme padding! Also, this one has not only an annoying sidekick for the hero, it has an annoying kid tagging along too! You are supposed to have one or the other, not both...to have both is to torture the viewer who is not a child to the max! There is also a lack of action in this one, sure there is a fist fight here and there and a couple of space battles, but other than that it is rather dull. Well check that, one space battle ended with all of one shot. The story had some interesting elements, kind of reminded me of Superman as we have doomed planets and of course the ruler of one of the planets is completely opposed to leaving. The other ruler is just insane (however, he at least does not insist on staying). The whole film is gearing up though for the event in the title to take place. Oh sure, they act like they may be able to stop it at one point, but you knew it was going to be ineffective and if it did work it would have made the title a complete and utter lie. So not completely horrible by any means, it is just a bit to dull to be good.
