Storyline

Amidst a general melting of the ice caps, a weather station in the Himalayas is destroyed and Gamma I commander Rod Jackson and his partner, Frank Pulasky are sent to investigate. Joined by Lisa Nielson (looking for her fiance) and Sharu, their Sherpa guide, they are captured by a race of hairy blue-bodied giants whose leader explains they are the Aytia and have established this relay station on Earth to aid in their plan to create a vast ice plane so their race can leave their doomed solar system and conquer the Earth. Escaping from the outpost, Jackson finds out the aliens' main base is on one of Jupiter's moons, Callisto, and he and Pulasky are sent into space to battle the Aytia before human life on Earth is destroyed.

Goofs

The jet Commander Jackson flies off in at first when recalled from vacation appears to be a B-52, with dual engine pods at each of the four wing stations, for a total of eight engines. This is obvious in the view from below as the jet takes off billowing black exhaust. A short time later, the jet is shown from above as it's flying and it's a delta-wing four-engine jet, with the two inboard engine on each side of the cockpit clearly single engines and not double engine pods.

More great 60's Italian Sci Fi
8 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The budgets of WILD WILD PLANET(1965) and WAR OF THE PLANETS(1966) ran out in this follow up to those films, using props and situations created in them. This one is earthbound and lacks the terrificly gaudy miniature future-scapes of the last two outings. And lacks the stars(Tony Russel, who actually has screen *presence* in the previous two).

Has a terrific opening score that playable several times, but the whole thing seems terribly set-bound, and small sets at that. But overall recalls to us a time of film-making long gone.

Fun stuff.
