Blah-net Outbores
7 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When they edited this one down from a serial, did they take out all the good bits? I'm all up for an old sci-fi film, but all Planet Outlaws seemed to involve was people flying in and out of secret bases and travelling to Saturn over and over and over again. This film seems to least three times longer than the stated running time.

Buck Rodgers and his borderline catamite sidekick Buddy are frozen in time when Buck lets out a vindaloo fart right at the moment of impact when their plane crashes. Enveloped in a spicy cloud of gas for a thousand years or so, Buck is awoken by the rebels of future planet Earth, who are involved in a conflict with dictator Killer Kane. Buck and young, nubile Buddy join the rebels and are immediately involved in a rush to get to Saturn in order to sign a treaty with those Saturn guys to join them against Killer Kane. However, Kane's men beat them to it and man does this film involve a whole lot of nothing.

That's really the plot: the rebels flying about trying to avoid Kane's ships, everyone trying to get to Saturn to sign some damn treaty or other, and people sneaking onto each other ships, Buck being shot down etc etc. There's some gumpf about people being turned into mindless robots and to be honest the only good part was the hilarious narrator who frames the film.

Did Buster Crabbe ever do anything good? This film is pants. Nabonga wasn't too good either, and the Alien Dead was awful.
