Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
Research scientists Adam (Kirk Douglas) and Alex (Farrah Fawcett) enjoy an idyllic existence on a remote space station until they are joined by inventor Benson (Harvey Keitel). Determined to create a super-race of robots, Benson manufactures a prototype, Hector, who gradually develops a mind of his own - taking on some of the more unpleasant aspects of his creator's personality in the process. The arrival at the station of the psychotic Captain James proves to be a catalyst for Hector to go on the rampage: but will his developing passion for Alex help or hinder the crew?

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.Read more ›
Nice film to kick back to and not bad effects overall. The music is terrific, and the scenes with Hector are ominous and at times terrifying. Saw this on TV in the 80s and loved it then. Returning to it now I can see the plot holes but its a simple idea with 3 people fighting a massive robot on Saturnian spacecraft. Wonderful fun if you can put up with the acting.
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!
This has two versions one with fully french audio,the other one in english.Picture and sound are watchable.
Saw this at the cinema,i rated it then.Just ok now.B movie entertaining.
