Uma trama curiosa e efeitos visuais ainda eficazes (embora ultrapassados, obviamente) garantiram que este filme envelhecesse bem.
| Original Score: 4/5

One of the great science-fiction films of all time, Forbidden Planet combines good drama with great special effects. And it has Robby the Robot to boot.

Interesting concept, but pretty lame sci-fi despite it's bloated reputation.

The gadgets and special effects seem almost quaint to us now, but the movie is still fun to watch for younger children and it still raises some important questions for older ones.
| Original Score: 4/5

Forbidden Planet stands as the Technicolor, major studio jewel in the crown of the handful of intelligent, dissenting polemical counterpoints of the decade.

Even on technical levels, Forbidden Planet is a successful film. Special effects were best of its age, and even today some of the scenes might impress the viewers.

Some of the special effects (revolutionary for its time) may look tacky by today's standards but its intelligent storyline makes up for it.
