A rocket is a projectile, much like a bullet. It has a trajectory and it goes until it runs out of fuel or it hits something. The crew flies this thing with the ease of a bumper car. This is only the beginning.
There is some sort of chemical spill when the rocket gets hit by an asteroid. Kip the strong silent type dons a chemical protective suit to take care of the spill with a fire extinguisher(?). Of course the two crew members that help him change into it (in front of a row of metal gym lockers no less) breathe in an unhealthy dose of chemicals as they lower Kip into the danger area.
The most pointed out stupidity of this flick is the infamous 'cigarette' scene. You see life must stay on the dark side of the moon. If not they'll be burned to a crisp. This is demonstrated by tossing a cigarette across the light/dark border.
The 'Cat Women' get their name from Kip, for that's what he calls them. Let me point out that Kip loves his pistol by the way. While exploring the moon, Kip pulls out his gun as a meteor comes crashing down. He finally uses it effectively against giant moon spiders and fleeing moon women whom he shoots in the back as they flee.
The commander Laird is a goofball x10. Marilyn Monroe fans will remember him as Tom Mckenzie from 'The Seven Year Itch'. His leadership skills are questionable as is his interaction concerning members of the fairer sex.
Round this out with awful special effects, no point, and a running time of under an hour and you have a real dud. So why the five stars? I happen to be a sucker for terrible movies. I love bad movies. This flick rates right up there with Plan 9 from Outer Space. Awful, awful, awful. I loved it.
Along the way the intrepid explorers have to battle enormous space tarantulas (complete with enormous string), invade ancient cities composed of matte paintings, and watch the completely ludicrous dance of the cat-women. The problem is that the atmosphere of the moon is being gradually destroyed (insert your own Al Gore joke here), which has (somehow) killed off all the moon men. Into this mess is thrust Kip, the leader of the expedition (Jory), although somehow copilot Sonny Tufts gets top billing. There is a vast quantity of otherworldly dialogue sprinkled throughout (e.g. "I love you Doug, yet I must kill you." and "I'll make a bargain with you. You take me to your rocket ship; I'll show you the cave of gold.") The film is only 64 minutes long, and at about the 63 minute mark I was wondering how it was going to end. the answer is "abruptly." Not only was the ending anticlimactic, it was just plain lame.
The film was originally released in 3-D, although this version is 2-D. You can still find the 3-D version on VHS, if you really want to.Read more ›

Classic sci-fi. Character interaction is the emphasis here not so much special effects. A bit of humor is thrown in indirectly. Read morePublished 9 months ago by John F
