Spun from Daniel DeFoe's tale of the titular character, this sci-fi story involves a spaceship commander, Chris Draper (Paul Mantee) in a similar situation to the original Robinson Crusoe -- but rather than being stranded on an island, our hero is on a hostile planet. Draper, Colonel Dan McReady (Adam West), and a test monkey look as if they are going to collide with a meteor. Draper and the chimp are able to eject themselves from the vessel, but McReady is not so lucky. The two survivors safely

Dated on many levels, but the film represents a fascinating slice of scientific history.
Almost distractingly, faithful to the original novel despite its radically different setting, the film is a pleasure mostly because of its vivid Technicolor backdrops.
In creating a work of spiritual, rather than physical, focus, Robinson Crusoe on Mars becomes more than just another post-50's sci-fi flick.
The real Mars may be nothing like it appears in this movie, but it sure does make you want to visit anyway.
Better than expected, and it features brief appearance by the future Batman.
Como em tantas ficções B, a Ciência da história é risível; porém, o longa funciona ao desenvolver bem a relação (com contexto homossexual e tudo mais) entre os personagens.
Altogether too sober, but well made.
Audience Reviews for Robinson Crusoe on Mars
- Col. Dan McReady: I like this movie and it has special memories for me when watching it on cable t.v. in Metro Detroit in the 70s. As time went on I realized that it was a great film. This movie inspired many sci-fi film makers and although the effects seem dated, they're still fantastic considering there wasn't any CGI or computers at that time. The story line can get a bit slow near the end, but it's a good story and unlike today's movies, it actually tells a story if you pay attention. One of the best and I can still watch it as though it was the first time.
