This is one of the few Hammer films that (to my knowledge) never made it on to VHS. Now with Anchor Bay releasing most of the Hammer Collection on to DVD, I’d like to see them release this one as well. I saw this in 1970 when I was a little kid, and one of the most hilarious things I remember about it was seeing the rock band from the time period when the movie was in production, playing as aged old men rock stars in the future. It kinda reminds me of the old rock stars from the 60s and 70s playing the same thing today, who haven’t changed at all except their age.I’m not gonna rate it at this time because I haven’t seen it in so long, but I’ll be looking forward to it if and when it comes out. Just don’t take it seriously like some of the other reviews below. It’s only escapist fare.And never mind the MST2K crap. The film isn’t that bad to deserve that kind of treatment.
Yes, it’s credited to Hammer, who gave us all those wonderfully poor horror movies made on a budget of three shillings tuppence happenny back in the 1960s. It’s not meant to be Star Wars, and it isn’t. But for its time (and we have to kind about such films) it’s actually technically very accurate (no sound in space, etc.) and if you can ignore the kitsch design and costumes, it’s actually quite good fun. I can imagine that the Moon of Moon Zero Two was a realistic and plausible view of human colonies on the Moon as seen from 1969, and why it might be a lot like the wild west. Every plot element of the film is lifted from cheap westerns, but it’s a favourite of mine, perhaps because I was a child when I first saw it.Just remember, it’s actually more intelligent than many of the brainless (and plotless) movies which people seem to accept today without question!
What happens when you combine go-go girls, disco music, spaghetti westerns, and 60s sci-fi? "Moon Zero Two" happens, that's what.The storyline reads like an after-school special, without much character development; but the parts are all well-acted. The miniatures and set designs are well-done, but true to the time; the costumes are mostly vibrant colors and PVC. There are honest efforts made to maintain credibility, such as the lack of noise in a vacuum, and no 'magic gravity' in space. The science is actually quite believable, especially in comparison to other 60s sci-fi.There are elements ("Moonopoly", six-shooters holstered in PVC gun-belts outside space suits, the moon saloon) of this movie that make it painfully cheesy at times, but not the same "so bad that it's good" cheese one would expect. It's more of a "I'm embarrassed to remember when those things were cool" kind of cheesy.Overall, an enjoyable watch (de…
