The Reviews for Battle Beyond the Stars (1980) 1080p

Don't take it seriously and you gonna have fun.Reviewed bybadoliVote: 7/10

In the wake of Star Wars a lot of movies were produced trying to score on the popularity of sci-fi at the time. Eager studios surprised by the success of the George Lucas movies were all too glad to pour money into these productions for the hope of some fast bucks.

"Battle Beyond the Stars" even goes so far to mimic the title of it's role model, along with several spaceship designs. To mix up the stars'n'lasers-theme they throw in a "seven samurai"-plot, several known actors and a playmate sex bomb as the cherry on top. Alas, the special effects pale in comparison, the design is visibly inferior and the story barely scrapes the surface.

Yet to say that the movie is a plain ripoff wouldn't do it right. There are some funny ideas, interesting characters and some humorous scenes, that can surely be enjoyed. So if you refrain from comparing it with the Star Wars series, you surely can have a fun time here.

As good now as it was then ... but was it good ?Reviewed bymungfleshVote: 6/10

Let's pretend we've never heard of Roger Corman nor The Magnificent Seven etc.

As a kid, that was me. I heard about this movie through my friends, when I was about 9 or 10. To us, this was another great space epic, along the lines of Star Wars. It had good effects, plenty of laser blasts and bad guy with a massive ship that could destroy planets. Awesome!

Many years later, I bought this on DVD and, to my pleasant surprise, found that it hadn't aged too badly. The low budget is very apparent but the movie is slickly edited such that it perhaps feels richer that it should. This is however it's biggest drawback because the character development is poor in places and the stars play second-fiddle to the ships and the costumes they inhabit. Gelt and Space Cowboy are perhaps the most fleshed-out of the pack, the remainder either being weak or there to make up the numbers.

The true star of the show is James Horner. It's a great score and all the best moments of Star Trek 2 are audible here first.

It's an inventive film, even if the invention is mainly facsimile, and an entertaining one. In the archives of sci-fi, there's no contest between this and its obvious "raison d'être" influence, as to which film is the better, but it's a noteworthy addition from the same era, what I consider to be the golden-age of special effects.

Seven Samurai in SpaceReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 6/10

Space tyrant Sador (John Saxon) threatens the pacifist defenseless agricultural planet of Akir with his weapon Stellar Converter. He pledges to return after the harvest in seven risings of their sun as the planet's new master. The elders send young Shad (Richard Thomas) to find mercenaries willing to fight for limited wealth rewards. He recruits Nanelia (Darlanne Fluegel) escaping from her father in her weaponless ship, Space Cowboy from earth (George Peppard) whose customer has just been destroyed by Sador, rich assassin Gelt (Robert Vaughn) looking for a friendly harbor, a Valkyrie named Saint-Exmin (Sybil Danning) looking to prove herself in battle in her tiny ship, five telepathic alien clones from a single consciousness called Nestor and a reptilian slaver named Cayman looking for revenge.

It's cheap Roger Corman production with the bones of the great 'Seven Samurai' and the energetic F/X work of a newcomer named James Cameron. There is definitely cheesy goodness in this. It's a fun space thrill ride. There are some good performances. The writing isn't bad. The production is half cheese and half fun adventure. It all adds up to a fun competent 'Star Wars' inspired B-movie.
