The late Giant Richard Kiel (007 films) stars as this giant cosmonaut being called a humanoid who is shot down on a planet with his R2-D2 robot dog. He is brainwashed and sent by this sinister scientist to murder this girl on the planet Metropolis, where the guard force there cannot seem to harm him. He is later rescued mentally by a little Asian boy with special mystical powers. This evil Darth Vader type guy teams up with a galactic queen babe to conquer the galaxy, but this Han Solo type dude who knows alien karate meets with Richard Kiel and the little boy to rescue the girl from the bad guy's stormtroopers.
Although the good guy can defeat the stormtroopers in fights, he is a complete wimp when matched against this Darth copy cat, so Kiel goes in to save him. This movie can be watched and somewhat tolerated by some teenagers, and adults alike who love fantasy sci fi franchises like Star Trek, Conan the Barbarian, Batman, Avengers, Battlestar Galactica, ET, and Star Wars ect, but most of all this is a kid movie for ages 6 and above. I would have rated this film G, or PG at the most. I for whatever reason being a die hard "Star Wars" fan happened to really enjoy elements of this movie, for I found it amusing to watch all of those films that tried to use George Lucas's formula on their own. B+ for "The Humanoid" a kid movie of fun.
The story: The evil Lord Graal attempts to overthrow his brother who is the ruler of planet Metropolis. To do this he enlists the help of genius yet insane Dr. Kraspin who has created a chemical that will change the cell structure of ordinary people turning them into mindless indestructible soldiers. The experiment is used on a pilot named Golob tuning him into the perfect soldier with superhuman strength. The people of Metropolis must somehow find a way to defeat Lord Graal before it’s too late.
Richard Kiel (Jaws from 007) is wonderfully campy as Golob and you will melt for his sidekick robot dog. I wasn’t crazy about TomTom but he had a major part so...
The special effects are cheezy. The dialogue is cheezy. The acting is cheezy. It’s fun. It’s campy. If you like old time serials or are a fan of Sci Fi movies from the 50’s era you will love this one. It will bring out the kid in you. And I defy you to keep from laughing out loud! It’s Saturday afternoon at the movies again.
Good luck finding it. I managed to stumble across a copy in English and subtitled in Russian.
