Women of the Prehistoric Planet Reviews
The real subject matter of the film is race relations, with the "Centaurians" all being played by Asian actors and the "Humans" all played by whites and the message is that different races can and should get along. This is a noble sentiment of course, but the movie around it is both incredibly clunky, unintentionally condescending and has an incredibly lazy twist at the end.
It is a bad movie, but good for lovers of the genre. After all, this is the film that gave the world "Hi-keeba!"
there's so many things to love-hate in this movie, like the stoned commander, the killer spider puppets, the ridiculously annoying engineer, and the eternal "tang." i'm still reeling from the shock that he fathered all of humanity.... (by the way, watch the mst3k version if at all possible. it makes it easier to make it all the way through.)
