More literary science fiction than prop filled space opera
This movie was not deserving of being MST3K'ed. It clearly predates the American space program, and didn't have a huge budget. But what this movie had was a decent plot that didn't use random action sequences to move things forward, and several very thoughtful moments. It owes more to literary science fiction than to the ray guns of space opera, a very good thing in my book.
Okay, I'll admit there were some very hokey lines and some very ludicrous special effects. But it was still a good movie, all in all.
