...even though its increasingly camp elements have aged poorly, it deserves respect as one of the more ambitious, grandiose, and important science fiction adventures of its time.

Pretty impressive sci-fi for 1955, a near classic.
| Original Score: 4/5

Eye-filling sci-fi, although it's even better as the basis of 'MST3K: The Movie'
| Original Score: 3/5

Slower-moving than it needs to be, but hardly the object of scorn MST3K would have us believe
| Original Score: 3/5

An appalling film, but good fodder for the mocking in "Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie"
| Original Score: 0/5
