3.0 out of 5 stars An underrated gem 10 Dec 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When I first saw Saturn 3 on it's release I really enjoyed it. I seemed to be in a minority of one. It looks like I still am. For some reason everybody ignores the wonderfully understated Keitel in this. Also, for some reason, no-one appreciates one of the weirdest, most unhinged robots in movie history. It's a wonderful study of obsession run amok and it's all the more dangerous because the robot is completely warped. And, contrary to current opinion, Kirk Douglas and Farrah F. aren't as miscast as you might think. The whole point is he's a square-jawed hero and she's a screaming blonde. How do they cope when Hector (who's like an earlier incarnation of The Bad Lieutenant) turns up? They don't. It's Brad and Janet for real. I love it, I'm only sorry no-one else does.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good idea thwarted by a terrible script 15 Oct 2009
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To say that sci-fi thriller Saturn 3 was a troubled picture is putting it mildly. The film suffered massive budget cuts shortly before shooting because of ITC's losses on Raise the Titanic, and things didn't get any better from there. Originally set to be the directorial debut of production designer John Barry, he soon fell foul of Kirk Douglas (whose ego was already smarting from taking second billing to Farrah Fawcett in what would be the last attempt to turn her into a major big screen star) and was replaced after a few days by producer Stanley Donen. Co-star Harvey Keitel fell out with the new director and didn't stick around for post-production, leaving him very obviously dubbed by British actor Roy Dotrice, which is all the more obvious since he also voices many of the public address announcements in the early scenes. Most of Elmer Bernstein's modernistic score was thrown out (including a particularly prescient bit of disco techno funk with Gregorian chants) and the film was heavily re-edited to less than an hour-and-a-half in a failed attempt to get a lower rating. After taking a box-office beating in the States it ended up opening quietly in the UK in a double-bill with Hawk the Slayer. It's probably a miracle the film came out at all, but the scars do show.

The idea isn't a particularly bad one, with Douglas and Fawcett an Adam and Eve (well, Adam and Alex) on a research station on one of Saturn's moons who find themselves with a pair of unwelcome serpents in their Eden in the form of Keitel and a robot helper, Hector.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and excellent sci-fi fun 2 May 2007
Format:DVD
This film isn't to the standard of Alien or other sci-fi classics. But Saturn 3 is a good story that is creepy! Harvey Keitel is perfectly cast as the mad killer who visits a far off outpost. The robot he builds learns from Harvey Keitel's mind so it ends up pretty twisted. There's a fair bit of tension, mostly helped by the gripping music. You wonder what the whole point of this will be and what that robot might want with our Farrah...

Some might say the special effects aren't all that great, well they aren't brilliant, certainly Alien (made a year or two earlier) has much better effects. With Saturn 3 you wish they'd more of an effort on the spaceships for sure. The films ending is also a little flat. But the build up is good. I recommend this film to anyone who likes a simple sci-fi story and of course anyone who likes Farrah Fawcett!

4.0 out of 5 stars I, Hector 3 July 2010
By Mr. Jonathon T. Beckett TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An unstable pilot Benson(Harvey Keitel), murders his rival Captain James, and sets off in his place on a mission to a research station on one of Saturn's moons. The personnel of the research station consist of only two people, Major Adam(Kirk Douglas) and his partner Alex(Farrah Fawcett). Benson, assuming the guise of Captain James, informs the duo that he has brought a robot to help run their experimental food program. The robot is Hector, one of the new Demigod III range.
Benson is soon making himself very unwelcome by lusting after Alex and engaging in long winded diatribes. When Hector is built, events takes a more dangerous turn, as the robot who gains knowledge from 'direct contact' with its creator begins to show all too human failings. The murder of Alex's beloved pooch is only the start of Hector's horrifying plans for the research station, and its occupants.
It's all too easy to dismiss this film as a failure. Okay Douglas and Fawcett are both badly miscast as Adam and Alex, Douglas being particularly hammy, and Keitel delivers a rather peculiar performance as Benson, coming across as Data from Star Trek's psychopathic older brother. There is quite a lot of padding that lengthens the paper thin story. However, just to concentrate on some of the more successful aspects of the film for a minute. The set design is terrific(I've read it being dismissed as sub par in a post-Star Wars age, but I find it to be charming). There is a great, rousing music score, perhaps a bit at odds with the somewhat dull on- screen shennanigans, and the design of Hector is pretty striking. Most of the best scenes in the film involve the robot, especially good is one where the research stations resident robots under the control of Hector, rebuild the robot's damaged body.
