5.0 out of 5 stars Too good for a B movie October 31, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this B movie. Bruce Campbell leaves his chainsaw at home but the scene with the steriotype scientist trys to make contact with the alien invader is worth seeing the whole movie for. The monsters are original and the concept is new. But there is still enough corneyness to keep it firmly in the B catagory. Just don't expect to see anything like Ed Wood or Dark Star. This is almost a serious movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! December 25, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Let me clarify...amzingly CHEESE! This is a movie I saw NUMEROUS times in 89 I think. That was back in the day of the digital video stabiliser, two VCR's and an RCA cable. Get the picture? ANYWAY, I must have seen this film 200 times! Koeing is putting forth the best dead-pan performance of his career! It really showed just how good of an actor he is. His inadvertant (or In your FACE) caracture of his friend Bill Shatner is CLASSIC! No he dosen't do a direct imitation of a certian famous (or infamous) starship captain, but I caught a LOT of the Shatneresque overacting!
Bruce Campbell is in his prime form in this film. His role is just HILARIOUS! He really shows that our favorite grocery clerk is better as an astronaut. Hey, I'd fly in space with him!
This film has it all! Classic Sci-Fi feel, a unique story( Virus was a ripoff of this film), plastic UZI's, inflatible tents, 14,000 year old corpses, and the like. This is a perfect movie to just hit the floor laughing while you wizz in your pants! Definetly worth the time it will take to find this vid.
Unless the release it on DVD. THAT IS A BIG HINT YOU GOOBERS!

2.0 out of 5 stars MOONTRAP Film is good quality is horrible February 28, 2013
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I have seen this movie. I bought a DVD copy. The DVD copy is from a VHS original. VHS on its BEST of all possible days was CRAP. The DVD is a basement copy. I keep hoping for a REAL release of this most interesting film. Maybe even Blu-ray. But I am not holding my breath. You MAY be able to snag a Betamax copy which at least would be viewable. The DVD from VHS will leave you badly needing vision correction.Don't waste your time or money. There is an OFF air copy out there too. It too sucks! About 25 lines of resolution. It is like trying to watch it through an old coca cola bottle. The film may not be star wars but it deserves better than this.

Moontrap [VHS]

Okay so this movie never made it to dvd I get that, but it's still worth a look by any si-fi or Bruce Campbell fan. Moontrap stars Walter Koenig from the original Star Trek series and Bruce Campbell who kicks demon butt in all the Evil Dead movies. If you can get use to the idea that Bruce is the sidekick to little Walter in this flick, you may enjoy it more. Remember, this was made in the 80's before computer graphics so some of the effects may not amaze you.
It starts off with Bruce and Walter investigating a huge alien ship from the moon passing earth and they bring back a football type artifact that builds itself into a killer robot using anything handy. So of course our two heros have to go to the moon and investigate. Guess what, give up? They find a girl, a darn good looking girl in a palace on the lunar surface that helps them stop an alien invasion plot to conquer earth, maybe.
I paid about $12 bucks for this movie and I think I got a pretty good deal.Please be kind to animals. Remember Karma, she knows things.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor VHS to DVD copy. April 27, 2013
By Lomion
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is B movie was not improved by the poor quality copy from VHS to DVD.

Koenig's acting has not improved since the original Star Trek series, and Campbell is a one man "army of dorkness". Despite its obvious flaws Moontrap is still mildly entertaining and somewhat amusing. If you are a fan of Walter Koenig, Bruce Campbell, Star Trek (TOS), or the Evil Dead movies you may want to add this DVD to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT PREMISE AND STORY!!! December 30, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The special effects range from excellent to cheezy. (Fortunately the good effects tend to outweigh the worse ones) The dialogue could have been a little better and more natural but it was still pretty good anyway. This movie is still a gem though. It was well thought out overall.This is one of the few movies that deals with a self replicating probe (A Von Neuman device) run amok. The female actor is exoticly beautiful and plays the part well. If you like this movie you will also like: Star Trek II; Wrath of Khan, Saturn 3, Hangar 18, The Blob (new), The Thing (new) and especially the new movie 'Virus' Moontrap is a nice addition to any sci-fi video library!

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather bad, but hilarious... April 11, 2007
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I watched this movie the first time on TV, probably a decade ago, and remembered being thrilled at the ending, as well as the fact that it had Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov from Star Trek), but I never found the title. I ran across it recently while looking through Bruce Campbell's IMDB filmography, and recognized the plot immediately. This movie is campy, strangely acted, and absolutely hysterical if you watch it in the middle of the night. Even though it's not the height of cinematic achievement, if you are fond of either of the main actors (Bruce Campbell, particularly, is his usual, bratty self), of old-school sci-fi horror, or just like to make fun of silly movies, you'll probably enjoy this film. I, personally, was pleased to find it again, and I definately enjoyed watching it.

Best quality transfer I have seen. It is only on 3.5cm film, and as far as I know was not released in US theatres. Bruce Campbell is in it and he has a serious role! Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes... it is a very old movie.
This is a very cheesy Sci-Fi movie. Two well known actors, a bad screen play and a failed attempt to promote it. Most people, don't even know the movie! Read more
