Quotes

Tilk (Male Robot): Great integrated circuits! What's that thing? Look Tilly! A prehistoric cave robot!
Tilly (Female Robot): I've never seen anything so ugly.
Tilk (Male Robot): They say creatures like this shouldn't be allowed to run around loose. They ought to be kept in zoos.
Tilly (Female Robot): Now Tilk, that's just prejudice. He has as much right to activate as we have, even if his tin is a different color.

Galactic Hero Sandwich
28 June 2008 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

"A race of aliens is en route to Earth with the intent of enslaving the human race. The world turns to a top scientist in the hopes that he, and the team he pits together, can come up with a plan to drive off the extraterrestrial invaders. Is there enough time for our hero and his companions to prepare for a fight the will decide the fate of the entire planet?" asks the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

Man's first contact with an alien race turns sour when they want to take over the planet, and make us futuristic slaves. "Star Odyssey" (in English) is a another cheap attempt to cash-in on the "Star Wars" success; although it doesn't really steal much story, and attempts some of its own cheesy style. The title and advertising graphics must have lured fewer victims this time around, as there was no follow-up.

Gianni Garko (as Dirk) and Yanti Somer (as Irene) manage to keep straight hero and heroine faces. This had to be difficult with lovesick robots "Tilt" and "Tilly" wandering around. The promise to alter their parts, so the mechanical couple would be able to consummate their relationship, is never shown on screen. Alas, it might have made the movie more than a complete waste of resources.

* Sette uomini d'oro nello spazio (10/26/79) Alfonso Brescia ~ Gianni Garko, Yanti Somer, Malisa Longo
