Watching this [Blu-ray] disc is almost like seeing the movie for the very first time, the image so crisp and clean it's downright breathtaking.

With an exceptional score, great visual transfer, healthy slew of new extras and a pretty inexpensive price tag, this Blu-ray is well worth picking up. Just be sure to hold on to your old "Studio Classics" release for the missing featurettes.

Supplying even screenwriter North's translation of "Klaatu barada nikto," this classic's new package has all a fan needs save for a model ship.

It's a film light years ahead of its time that, strangely enough, couldn't have been realised at a more perfect time.

[Fox Studio Classics edition] gets the blue-ribbon DVD treatment ... fully restored from a new 35mm print created from original elements, a labor of love that involved two fine-grain positives -- one for this DVD and a second for the Fox vaults.
