3.0 out of 5 stars An underrated gem, 10 Dec. 2000
This review is from: Saturn 3 [VHS] (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.

I really love this film too. I remember seeing it's 1st television airing and I felt involved enough when Keitel enters the screen & the robot storyline kept me hooked. Kirk & Farrah are very sweet together & I'm sure over the coming years it'll be a cult classic alongside the likes of Darkstar, and suchlike.....
