Forbin (Eric Braeden) has invented a new super computer for a State Department project to monitor worldwide missile systems in this science fiction thriller. The computer system, known as Colossus, links up quickly and by itself with the Russian counterpart Guardian. Soon the President (Gordon Pinsent) and the Russian First Chairman (Leonid Rrostoff) are in contact expressing their mutual concerns. Both computers act with human intelligence and create their own language beyond human capability and comprehension. Soon missiles are launched by the machines, the Air Force is destroyed trying to disarm the warheads, and those who tried to overload the system are ordered to be killed. Cleo (Susan Clark) is Forbin's scientist girlfriend who listens to the concerns of the worried inventor. William Schallert and Marion Ross also appear. Universal Studios began this project in October, 1968, but it was not released until March, 1970. … More

Critic Reviews for Colossus - The Forbin Project
After an excellent beginning, the craven script (based on DF Jones' novel Colossus) develops cold feet, injects some tiresome comic relief, and gradually begins to drag the whole thing down.
A crisp, well-crafted movie that achieves its effects by calmly stating the facts, with the bare minimum of histrionics.
