Goofs

About 50 minutes into the film the raiding alien ships are reported capable of extremely rapid acceleration: "They can evidently reach a velocity of several parsecs". But a parsec is an astronomical unit of distance (a contraction of the phrase "parallax second"), not a unit of velocity. One parsec is equivalent to a distance of 3.26 light years or 19.2 trillion miles. See more »

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.

DON'T bother watching unless you can stomach bad films or poorly-made sci-fi!
15 April 2016 | by talisencrwSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst films I've experienced so far from my trusty Mill Creek 50-film 'Nightmare Worlds' pack (on twelve double-sided DVDs, no less), and it did a further injustice at being way too long. Usually these turn out to be just over an hour, so if it's an unpleasant bore, all you have to do is blink and it's over, but this was almost two hours long. There were many ways in which the filmmakers tried to rip off and cash in on much better films--you can tell that their C3PO-type robot, that's supposed to be the perfect bartender, was designed using a garbage can; and the English title distinctly culls from both 'Star Wars' and '2001: A Space Odyssey', both legendary masterworks of the genre. Yet there WERE some interesting ideas of merit, which much better scriptwriters and directors could have really done fine things with (intergalactic auctions of planets being but one of them), so I couldn't discount the film altogether. I'm simply glad it's over and done with, and I will never bother watching it again.

In conclusion, it's only worth a look if you REALLY like bad films or sci-fi and don't mind that it's very poorly made--otherwise, give it a wide berth and simply move on.
