    Or Frankenstein In Space! Despite the number of A-listers working on this what we get is simply a poor effort all round, but I'd start with a weak story first.Worst than some fan made Youtube efforts I've seen ... by far.Either give it a pass or light up a joint and have a few this.

    I saw this on TV a long time ago, and I'd forgotten what it was about, but reading the summary on here it sounds like everyone falls in love with Farrah Fawcett in outer space, and that just sounds silly, no wonder I didn't rate it so high.

    Fond memories of this movie. Actually, any science fiction around the late 70's to early 80's was seen as a continuation of the Star Wars exciting momentum. Re-watching with post-ROTJ blues, Saturn 3 seemed confined to a single base, with a junky robot and embarrassingly acted. The story is a shambled mess. The future technology presented now seems clunky. Harvey Keitel plays a cold snake character. Farrah and Kirk's relationship seems a bit awkward; she was so smooth and young and he was so old and wrinkled. I noticed the lack of incidental music. Most impressive was the set design of the remote space station.
