1983 - SPACEHUNTER: ADVENTURES IN THE FORBIDDEN ZONE


Well the approach or plan was to make a science fiction film that had a B-movie sensibility sort of like Star Wars, but this film is no Star Wars.

The actors with the exception of an extremely miscast Molly Ringwald seem like they want to give it the old college try but the screenplay is so pedestrian and more importantly unfunny that they just go through the motions from one scene to the next.


The director is Lamont Johnson a rather distinguished television director who never really made the transition to theatrical films.  Johnson who directed many outstanding television films seems like a really poor choice for a science fiction film a genre he never worked in.

This film was shown in 3-D and as I recall brought nothing to the viewing experience.

90 minutes.
