It is a scifi film
17 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was not a total lost cause but I always like most older scifi films even the not very good ones. You have a couple fairly well known actors leading the cast but the rest were mostly minor actors.

The plot concept itself was not bad but the script left much to be desired. The directing had a very quick business like pace with actors most going throw their lines. There was little dwell time emotion on except for some solace moments. It had a lot of the delivery like in a Jack Webb show. For example, there was not much lamenting of the astronauts death when back to business on the way home. The sets were not even up to Star Trek TV standards that started airing in 1966 or even less Lost in Space. It did not take itself too seriously or campy so was tolerable.

I found the soundtrack to be a what made this film unique since I like the 60's time capsules. It definitely had a different vibe as the country turns the corner in 1968 in many ways as it shows up on TV and the movies.
