Interesting, original sci-fi premise of giant, metallic walker.

Os efeitos visuais são pavorosos, os personagens se resumem a estereótipos, o roteiro é péssimo e o 'monstro espacial' é um dos mais ridículos já criados pelas ficções B.

Audience Reviews for Kronos

The special effects shots are ingenious, the stock footage is plentiful and Jeff Morrow's preposterously manly voice booms out over all of it. What more could you want from 50s sci-fi? Answer: nothing.

This movie scared me as a kid for some reason. Doesn't look so scary now. I think a remake of this movie would be interesting.

This film Quality was about the best I have ever seen for Black and White. Must of been a high budget film back in the day. Some great scenes of early Air Force Aircraft, not sure that shots like these can be seen anywhere else. The Main Theme Monster was a little to simple for such great acting. One question when the UFO turned on the magnetic field why did only the doctors glasses move across the surface and not the helicpter? A Rental, I'll past on adding it to my collection.
