War Of The Planets A strange signal arrives on the Earth disturbing all communications, while a UFO appears above the Antarctic sea. Captain Alex Hamilton is sent with his spaceship and crew to the space outside the Solar System to find the origin of that signal. They reach an unknown planet where a giant robot enslaved a whole population of humanoids by taking their psychic energies. The robot’s got his eyes on the Earth, too.
Classic 70s Italian Sci-Fi cheese
War Of The Planets Either you are into these type of movies or you aren’t; it’s as simple as that. If you are a sci-fi buff and can appreciate the feel of the older B-movies, this one will most likely resonate with you (it did me). The acting is cheesy, and the story arc a bit shaky, but Cosmos: War of the Planets doesn’t fail to entertain. The story is tight enough to keep you enthralled, and the action keeps up at a decent pace. A renegade captain (Kirk-like character) is selected to save Earth from a hostile alien menace. That’s basically all you need to have a successful movie in this genre. Several unique ideas were thrown in that were copied by others later (like the simulated sex computer- stolen years later in Demolition Man). It’s a classic line when the woman asks the man: “Would you like it slow or rough?”. His care-free response: “You decide.” Love it! The tone of the movie is what really stands out. The sets look good enough and the ending scene delivers some good gore/action. Yes, the costumes are cheesy (what was up with those hats?!), but the women look damn fine in their tight-fitting getups. 🙂 The movie gives you the feel of the 50s sci-fi films with just enough updates as to not be boring. Definitely better than the low rating it has on IMDb. I think that comes from people who are expecting Cloverfield or Independence Day and just don’t get low budget movies. Overall, a tasty slice of Italian sci-fi cheese. 7 out of 10. Seek out a used VHS for a couple clams. Also check out Starcrash and Battle Beyond the Stars.
