Newt's movie review

Bruce Dern is very convincing. Almost frighteningly so. The movie plods along slowly being mildly depressing, and frequently reminding me of Starlost and Space 1999. Perhaps in 1971 the effects were cutting edge but I'm sure the story had already been done to death. If it's on, you better make sure you have something else to keep you occupied or you're likely to nap through it.
