This was a Disney space epic made to capitalize on sci-fi's surge given to it by Star Wars no doubt.
V.I.N.C.E.N.T. was a direct knock off between R2-D2 and Spock actually (with his witicizms in response to everything the brash pilot Charlie Pizer said).
The uniforms are almost white variations on the StarFleet look done later on Enterprise, which are also similar to real NASA jumpsuits (the blues, minus the diapers of some fame as of late).
Captain Dan Holland was a cool character and "Reinhart" was well played as an obsessive madman.
I liked the heroic music played during the firefights with the robots. The other theme they had running during much of the credits and the Palamino's original approach of the Cygnus felt very dated and reminded you that this was a "B-movie."
Anthony Perkins played Dr. Alex Durant who you had to like before he met an unfortunate end at the hands of the killer-enforcer robot, Maximillian (who was undoubtedly the surrogate Darth Vader of the film).
The Sentry Robots were also knock-offs of the stormtroopers. But so what?
I had the action figures when I was a kid. They did most of them old GI Joe style (screws and rubberbands) and they lacked weapons. However they looked alright and the robots were cool!
I still love that scene when the crew is running ahead of the huge meteroite that crashes into the ship. It's like the opening of Raiders of the Lost Ark X 100!
This concludes all my movie reviews until I have watched 7 years or more of Star Trek and tackle the Enterprise's movies. I've discussed everything I own in my personal video collection, and that I had an interest in renting, etc.
Of course I'll participate in on-going threads and new-movie threads -or start them if need be - but everything I know I plan to see this year has a thread:
I'm not sure if there will be more. I don't think I'll run and see Fantastic Four: 2 in the theaters. I wasn't really impressed with the first one.
But if anyone cares to discuss The Black Hole...
