Trivia

The poor special effects combined with low-budget aesthetics and general cheesy feel of the picture have made it a favorite of bad-movie fans. See more »

Goofs

At the end of a car chase, which is shot in broad daylight, the film cuts to a miniature of the car going off a model railroad-size road and steep embankment (with accompanying unnecessary sparking effects)and crashing at the bottom. The effect is shot taking place at night, despite the fact the preceding chase had just been on a sunlit day. When the scene cuts back from the model to a live scene of the actors investigating the wreck, it is also filmed as a night shot in order to match the previous miniature scene. See more »

Quotes

Cmdr. Mike Halstead: This isn't the sort of project I thought we'd have crammed down our throats - here on Gamma One.
Mr. Nurmi: Crammed down your throats? Commander, you should be pleased that Gamma One was chosen for this test.
Cmdr. Mike Halstead: Its the sort of pleasure we could do without. All these parts of people, shrunken organs, it kinda makes me sick to my stomach.
Mr. Nurmi: Halstead, you better get used to it. Tissue grafts and transplants are a fact of life. They are revolutionizing medicine and will transform mankind. They are a key to a new ...

just the (unintentionally) funny lines are enough to make this a pleasure
12 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Maybe I was REALLY ready to be entertained, but I saw this for the first time early this morning, after a night spent dealing with bad heartburn and an "iffy" stomach. At first I was happy to find a good "background noise" to fall asleep to, but then I actually got into it. Between the spaceship and "future car" models that look like they came right out of a Quisp box, and the stilted "mod" English the translators came up with for the dubbed version, this thing is really funny. Best line: The commander and two other "good guys" are wrestling around what looks like a dorm room with 3 buxom, long-haired lovelies (who are all mysteriously wearing what look like black swim trunks under their long, groovy '70s dresses). The commander warns his men to "Watch out for those gadgets on their chests! Priceless.
