Saturn 3, for all intents and purposes, is a B movie. It's not exactly a strong one, but it's not exactly weak either. You can tell within the first five or ten minutes what this film is all about and why it came into being. It's a bit of an amalgam of all of the things that were popular at the time having to do with science fiction: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars and Alien, especially Alien. Even the score evokes these films. It features a terrible performance from Farrah Fawcett, who is simply present for her goods, but there's also Harvey Keitel and Kirk Douglas. It's a real head-scratcher of a movie, especially considering that Stanley Donen came in to finish the film half-way through the production. He directed films like Singin' the Rain and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, and really nothing like this, so the movie's odd all around. The monster/robot isn't much of a winner either. The movie is still interesting to watch, despite all of its flaws, of which there are many.
