Audience Reviews for Marooned


Filmed with the hype of the moon landing, Marooned is an average science fiction melodrama with very little science involved. Other than some nice cast, the film was fairly forgettable

Yes, the story sounds interesting and the cast has some very famous people, but by the middle of the movie it gets incredibly boring and predictable, and it's slow too. I didn't like it, but it wasn't all bad either.

It unfolds slowly, with realistic but often no cinematic purpose. As the last quarter of the film approaches, it regains its cinematic credentials and regains a tense, anxious air. It truly shines when understood in its timeframe, between the Moon Landing and Apollo 13 incident. It covers the same ground that many later Space Race dramas would cover, and often covers them with better humanity and thoroughness. An excellent window into this tense stage of space-travel... and if it fails occasionally as a film, it can be excused for what it lets us watch with a sense of authenticity and honesty.

In 1969, this was accepted as science fiction. A year later, the country would be hanging on their seats when a similar thing happened to the astronauts of Apollo 13. The visual effects are very good for their time. Like Stanley Kubrick, John Sturges realizes that the most effective special effects are of the more subtle, artful variety. Marooned may be slow-paced at times, but it certainly is worth investing in and especially for those who are fans of science fiction who also want an intelligent, well made film
