4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and excellent sci-fi fun
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars An underrated gem
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars Kirk & Farah cash-in on the sci-fi bandwagon, 19 July 2000
This review is from: Saturn 3 [DVD] [1980] (DVD)
Kirk Douglas and Farah Fawcett cash-in on the sci-fi boom of the late-70's/early-80's to poor, miscast effect in this 1980 addition to the genre.
The plot is at best average (although much more could have been done with the basic idea), the scripting is terrible, the special effects are somewhat mediocre and the robot (Hector, a kind of malevolent Robbie the Robot) is plain ridiculous, albeit of an admittedly original design.
As with the reviewers below, this is certainly not 'one to buy', although if you're interested in 'periphery sci-fi' movies such as this, I guess this could be your thing on a rainy week-night if you have'nt any paint to watch drying.
Plus Points ? - I've never been the biggest fan of Farah Fawcett, but she does look pretty tasty in this one !

The Lost in space movie robot owes alot to hector
Farrah Fawcett is gorgeous
Kirk is dimpley
And the plot is great just forget about the poor special effect, cause the robot effect is worth seeing

2.0 out of 5 stars Really Bad, 31 Aug 2011

This review is from: Saturn 3 [DVD] [1980] (DVD)
This has got to be one of the worst made so-called professional productions ever. The script is badly written, the acting wooden and the directing embarrassing. All the negative reviews have got it right!

1.0 out of 5 stars A truly terrible Film, 19 Mar 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Saturn 3 [DVD] [1980] (DVD)
Good actors lost in a bad plot with a bad script and poor special effects, worth a watch on a Sunday afternoon, but no more than that.
One to Avoid..........................
