So Cheesy and Silly that Becomes Funny
16 March 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 2020, after the colonization of the moon, the spaceships Vega, Sirius and Capella are launched from Lunar Station 7 to explore Venus under the command of Professor Hartman (Basil Rathbone), but an asteroid collides and explodes Capella. The leader ship Vega stays orbiting and sends the astronauts Kern (Georg Tejkh) and Sherman (Yuri Sarantsev) with the robot John (John Bix) to the surface of Venus, but they have problems with communication with Dr. Marsha Evans (Faith Domergue) in Vega. The Sirius lands in Venus and Commander Brendan Lockhart (Vladimir Yemelyanov), Andre Ferneau (Robert Chantal) and Hans Walter (Georgi Zhzhyonov) explore the planet and are attacked by prehistoric animals. They use a vehicle to seek Kern and Sherman while collecting samples from the planet. Meanwhile John helps the two cosmonauts to survive in the hostile land.

"Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet" is so cheesy and silly that becomes funny. The effects are awful even for a 1965 movie, and the dialogs are very poor. Maybe the director and writer wrote this story and these lines in the elementary school so ridicule they are, specially the lines spoken by scientists. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Planeta Pré-Histórico" ("The Prehistoric Planet")
