A somewhat tiresome 50's sci-fi flick
16 March 2014 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Rocky Jones and chums transport some VIPs to an outer space conference that is being held on a space station. The evil empress Cleolanta has different ideas and kidnaps the passengers in order to have leverage in having two of her imprisoned spies freed. Jones and the gang have to come to the rescue.

This is another in a series of 50's films that were created by knocking together various episodes of the 'Rocky Jones: Space Ranger' TV series. I've seen another one, Crash of Moons, and all I can say is at least Silver Needle in the Sky isn't as terrible as that one. But that isn't really saying a lot to be perfectly honest because this is also a very dull effort indeed. I think it would only be fair to say that these were very much products of their time and will do very little for anyone but the most committed fan of 50's sci-fi. On the positive side, the recurring villainous queen Cleolanta is quite a good character and the daft models are quite good fun. But other than that, I'm struggling.
