In declaring it ripe for the MST3K treatment, I'm really saying that if you don't like movies, you might have a good time going after this one.
Adults as well as children should be entertained by this sci-fier that succeeds without much technological gadgetry, instead relying on its charm.
This was included on the 50th Anniversary Special Edition DVD of Forbidden Planet. Robby the Robot, who I think is way too clunky and old-fashioned, is recycled for use in this awful film. The boy, Timmie (Eyer), is a complete brat and I didn't like the character at all. His father, a scientist, is disappointed that his boy can't play chess and that he does not have the same interest in science. The father has built and programmed a humongous computer for a secret military research facility. The computer's "head" is the same sort of vacuum tube that shapes Robby's head. It is one of many ridiculous scenes when the father takes his son to learn chess from the computer. The computer speaks, but in 50's fashion has LOTS of blinking panels. It hypnotizes the boy! The boy can now win chess, reconstruct Robby the Robot, and by plugging the room sized computer into Robby, remove Robby's basic directive forbidding bodily injury to humans. The super computer is malevolent. Timmie has fun causing mischief including having Robby make him invisible. Meanwhile, Timmie's father has to deal with rival scientists and scheming military officers. There are murders. There are computer chip things imbedded to allow the computer to control nearly every character. There is a rocket launch. The dialog is all terrible. The characters are all shallow stereotypes. The plot is all over the place and ludicrous.
