Movie Info

An American astronaut is selected to lead a British crew to a journey to another planet, hence the title. Colonel Glenn Ross (Roy Thinnes) is selected because of his previous experience in space travel. The crew sleeps for three weeks in a drug induced state of suspended animation while the rocket races closer to the unknown planet. Upon landing on the surface of the mystery planet, the leader is disoriented and proceeds to have futuristic flashbacks in this uneven science fiction saga.

Audience Reviews for Journey to the Far Side of the Sun

A decent premise, but it seems far too long for what it is, with not much actually happening. There's too many twists and reveals that end up confusing an audience, rather than making them beg for more.
