People compare every space movie to Star Wars, which is stupid, but sadly it happens all the time. I have seen this movie compared to it in a hell of a lot of reviews...well that won't happen here.
Gorgeous Caroline Munro is Stella Star, a sultry space jockey who, along with her robot companion Akton, a robot lawman named Elle, and Thor a policeman are commissioned to save the Universe by the Emperor.
Stella and Elle search several planets for a lost escape ship and run into constant danger in the form of giant metallic monsters to Amazons working for the evil Count Zarth Arn. This is a very fun and wild film, not to be taken very seriously and it is well aware of that as it moves along briskly.
The cast includes Joe Spinell as Zarth Arn and he really chews up every scene he is in, Marjoe Gortner is Akton, Judd Hamilton is Elle, Robert Tessier is Thor and Christopher Plummer is the Emporer.
Munro spends a lot of time in her black leather bikini and that alone makes the movie worth watching, provided you are still a red blooded male that is. The DVD from Shout is a two disc affair with a very long and fascinating interview with Munro about her entire acting career. I was very glad to see this film finally get the treatment it deserves, and it is now out on Blu-Ray as well.
Recommended for viewing during Halloween and anytime thereafter.
