Audience Reviews for Space Men (Assignment Outer Space)
It's not a bad story, but the plot is pretty hallow and the film drags on too long. The space scenes are pretty cool to see though, and look nice for an early 60's film. Not particular bad, but could of been better. Held my interest at least.
A reporter goes aboard a space station to write a routine piece, but when an out-of-control space station threatens the Earth he's forced to take an active role in its destruction. It's an Italian attempt at a serious space fiction story (no little green men), but it's undone by a slow, spotty script and effects that consist of toy spaceships in front of a black curtain with holes punched in it.
Seemed to take a long time to watcht his boring movie, even though it did have its good points. Really wooden acting and some really bad special effects just couldn't keep my attention. The one thing that got me was the main character floating from the shuttle to the space station and that got me thinking about how scary that really is.
