Movie Info

American astronauts Buzz (Gene Hackman), Jim (Richard Crenna) and Clayton (James Franciscus) are stranded in space on their return journey from a new space station when malfunctioning rocket boosters bring the craft to a halt. With the men drifting in orbit, facing death from declining oxygen levels in the shuttle, NASA director Charles Keith (Gregory Peck) quickly mobilizes to launch a bold rescue mission -- but a hurricane headed for the launch site may ensure the astronauts' demise.

Audience Reviews for Marooned

  • Mar 03, 2019
    The film never really launches off as it's paced at zero gravity. Sturges chooses not to use music to enhance dramatic points. Adding to the missed landing is the filmmakers' failing to orbit the storyline around the relationships between the astronauts and their suffering wives. Nonetheless, it's an interesting film if you'd like to see the movie that inspired Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity.

    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.
