Audience Reviews for Rocketship X-M
When you see a moon landing film made before moon landing in real life, you know it's bound to be bad. To make things even worse, they landed on Mars instead of Moon where savagery Martians attacked the crew and they must escape... Not even good enough for a few chuckles.
One of the earliest in a seemingly endless series of American sci-fi films of the 1950s, Rocketship X-M is humorous (as it most mediocre 50s sci-fi fare), but it never really manages to be very good except for the few minutes that the crew spend on Mars. These scenes are somewhat interesting, but the rest of the film is mostly boring if not downright idiotic. I am a huge fan of 50s sci-fi, and Rocketship X-M ranks low on the list in my book.
Standard '50s sci-fi fare with a sexist Lloyd Bridges as the lead. Which is more terrible: the martians trying to conquer the rocket crew or Lloyd Bridges trying to conquer the female rocket scientist's independence?
