The Black Hole Reviews

Emanuel Levy

Despite Oscar nominations for cinematography and visual effects, the Black Hole, an attempt to cash in on the sucess of Star Wars, leaves much to be desired.

It is good to see the Disney craftsmen doing what they do best on such a grand and risky scale. If one has time for only one space opera this season, this is the one to choose.

The that the protagonist, Schell, is nuts, and we find it difficult to root for him. The other characters are never fully developed, and so the picture becomes a triumph of style over substance.

The science of this fiction is as hokey as the drama, but the imaginative art design and excellent special effects are magnificent.

An elegant, if stubbornly unexciting, popcorn-muncher that flips into a chin-scratcher, with a crew of mostly bland heroes.

Ranks among the very best films to come from the post-Star Wars sci-fi boom.

...ultimately revealed to be an underrated and surprisingly dark Disney effort.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Disney's most ambitious and costly production to date -- about a spaceship crew which encounters a Black Hole and a long-lost madman -- and if looks were everything, you could hardly fault it.

For-its-time state of the art effects help flat story and acting.

It cost half as much as Star Trek and looks better -- not as lavish, perhaps, but more original. The special effects are fancy, and the design even more so.

Takes us all the way to the rim of space only to bog us down in a talky melodrama whipped up out of mad scientists and haunted houses.

Even as a fantasy-lovin' boy of 14, I was bored silly by this movie, and a repeat viewing just last week revealed that the film has, if anything, gotten worse over time.

...with so many great fantasy and sci-fi films appearing in the intervening years, I doubt that too many adults are going to find the Disney flick of much interest. I didn't.

Disney's first PG-rated film was pioneering for its time (integrating special effects better than any film before it), but it suffers pretty badly today.

A weak, unfocused s-f venture; not one of Disney's shining moments.

If you can ignore the scientific problems, The Black Hole turns out to be a fairly enjoyable sci-fi flick.

Something less fun than the worst exploitation sci-fl flick thrown at us by the likes of Roger Corman.
