Movie Info

Inoshiro Honda, the director who brought the world Godzilla and Rodan, is at the helm of this sci-fi adventure that does not quite fall in the same wildly popular category as his first efforts in the genre. The premise is that the world is somehow miraculously living in peace (in 1965) but global harmony, not to mention existence, is threatened by a technically superior civilization from outer space that plans on blowing the planet to smithereens. As landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge are spectacularly destroyed, the UN meets to ponder defensive measures. Fortunately, a ray gun has been invented that just might work against the bellicose aliens.

Critic Reviews for Battle in Outer Space (Uchû daisensô)

All Critics (1)

... a visually splendid and narratively pedestrian space opera, short on character and plot but full of great miniatures and dramatic effects in a film packed with spectacle.
