Movie Info

Director Stanley Donen's sci-fi film Saturn 3 stars Kirk Douglas and Farrah Fawcett as scientists living on Saturn's third moon. Their mission is to create new food sources that they can take back to Earth, however their peaceful existence comes to a halt when a third person, Benson (Harvey Keitel) arrives with a super advanced robot that becomes a dangerous killing machine after communication with Earth is lost due to an eclipse. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Saturn 3 can be beautiful and impressive in scope, ambition and design but it's almost impossible to watch Saturn 3 without thinking of how much better it could have been and might have been had the film been better executed.

An unfocused and dull meshing of ideas that never add up to a coherent or riveting science fiction thriller.

[Blu-ray Review] "Saturn 3" will be most of interest for camp enthusiasts and fans of all things sci-fi. A welcome addition to serious Blu-ray collections and supporters of Scream Factory's outstanding work.

Saturn 3 remains a mere gender curio of the era. It's too rotten to be anything else.

Surprisingly entertaining sci-fi flick, but not really good.

Not one of Donen's best.

Audience Reviews for Saturn 3

Fond memories of this movie. Actually, any science fiction around the late 70's to early 80's was seen as a continuation of the Star Wars exciting momentum. Re-watching with post-ROTJ blues, Saturn 3 seemed confined to a single base, with a junky robot and embarrassingly acted. The story is a shambled mess. The future technology presented now seems clunky. Harvey Keitel plays a cold snake character. Farrah and Kirk's relationship seems a bit awkward; she was so smooth and young and he was so old and wrinkled. I noticed the lack of incidental music. Most impressive was the set design of the remote space station.

I saw this on TV a long time ago, and I'd forgotten what it was about, but reading the summary on here it sounds like everyone falls in love with Farrah Fawcett in outer space, and that just sounds silly, no wonder I didn't rate it so high.

More fun than anything, it's well worth a watch for Keitel's performance... and the robot's.
