Liked this film a lot pictures not as bad as some make out no its not state of the art looks like some thing put back together from the scrap heap very rusticated gives it a charm not a head ake and the sound's OK to look I come from the age when the best vhs films had lines going up and down in them you was just happy to find a copy of whot ever the film was and this is a fine example for one pound twenty stop complaing as far as the film it self it looks way ahead of its time for 1957 I say wow better than most of the stiff rubbish si fi at the time before the great 2001 and planet of the apes this is about as good as it gets and the space suits look fantastic as well I think alian wins for best design space suits of all time but yet again thay look ahead of there time and last thing that floating car looks good to its like a predated starwars speeder gos under water as well how cool is that

A rocket in the year 2020 is journeying to the planet Venus to explore this, one of our neighbours in space. After a promising opening, the film descends into cheapness personified. I'm a fan of low-budget 'so bad they're good' sci-fi films, but really this is just slow and soon becomes tedious. Basil Rathbone appears, yes, but he is wasted in a minor role which sees him playing a cardboard scientist. Scenes from this movie were lifted straight from a Russian sci-fi film, which means some dreadful dubbing and some strange switches between colour and black-and-white.

When they arrive on Venus the spacemen, who have no kind of personality whatsoever, are accompanied by a clunky-looking robot which lacks any of the charm or character of Robbie the Robot or the robot from the "Lost in Space" series. The team soon find briefly-seen "lizard-men" (people in tatty-looking ceratosaurus costumes), a bronotsaurus, a hilariously bad pterodactyl, the soundtrack from "Dinosaurus" and some giant man-eating plants. The female voice and the reflections in the pond are never explained, and the 'monsters' have very little screen time. Oh, and the picture quality is dreadful. Not that there's really very much of interest to see.

I bought this film for my husband as he's a fan of Basil Rathbone, unfortunetly he gave up watching it after 10 minutes with a severe headache, as the picture & sound quality was that bad.
Also he said Basil Rathbone shouldn't have bothered with his role in it as it was so wooden a local jobing actor from a local stage school would have been better cast, what a waste of a great talent.

This is a Z-grade B-movie. The acting is wooden (or in the robot's case, metallic) and the plot creaks along. An interesting concxept, though. Try it- you may like it, like me.
