It's easy to see why Saturn 3 has achieved a certain type of cult appeal over the years- it has an incredible cast, an interesting killer robot running amok, some cool ideas, and a beautiful score by famed composer Elmer Bernstein.
Saturn 3 can be beautiful and impressive in scope, ambition and design but it's almost impossible to watch Saturn 3 without thinking of how much better it could have been and might have been had the film been better executed.
An unfocused and dull meshing of ideas that never add up to a coherent or riveting science fiction thriller.
[Blu-ray Review] "Saturn 3" will be most of interest for camp enthusiasts and fans of all things sci-fi. A welcome addition to serious Blu-ray collections and supporters of Scream Factory's outstanding work.
Saturn 3 remains a mere gender curio of the era. It's too rotten to be anything else.
Surprisingly entertaining sci-fi flick, but not really good.
Not one of Donen's best.
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.
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.
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.
This was another late seventies technophobic movie where everyone was firghtened of the future....Great evil robot and cool space based romp.
