I’m actually not sure how many of you have and have not seen this film. I am NOT talking about the travesty of a remake, that stared Keanu Reeves from 2008, but the original Cold War version from 1951.
I was reminded of this movie a while back when watching Project Blue Book which includes a bit of the ending in the pilot. I didn’t make it thru the pilot, and I would have to work pretty hard (and violate some social-distancing rules) to see it. Unless it is streaming somewhere like Netflix… And I probably won’t resubscribe to any streaming services right now. And yes I know they’re all free for a month.
Anyway, I doubt most of you have seen it, if only because movies from the 1950s tend to move a bit slowly by modern standards. And while there is a “giant” robot (Gort isn’t that big, really) who destroys a few things, there aren’t any wonderful special effects, by today’s standard anyway. (All the reliance on effects is one of the many things that made the 2008 remake so awful.)
Here’s a review. Trailers from that era tend to be nonsense. As a review, it contains spoilers. I think you would still enjoy the film. And it is only about 5 minutes.
