Description
A dutiful robot named Robby speaks 188 languages. An underground lair offers evidence of an advanced civilization. But among Altair-4's many wonders, none is greater or more deadly than the human mind.

Forbidden Planet is the grandaddy of tomorrow, a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Leslie Nielsen plays the commander who brings his spacecruiser crew to the green-skied world that's home to Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), his daughter (Anne Francis)... and to a mysterious terror. Featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all-electronic musical soundscape in film history, Forbidden Planet is in a movie orbit all its own.

    This was the movie that really proved sic-fi did have value as it used its futuristic timeline as the tool for discussing topics not always broached such as separatism and even the costs for societies that overreach. Who knows, maybe we're looking at our own future? I'm sure glad I own this delightful master.

            This movie represents a change in science fiction. Considering the era of its beginning, the sets and the special effects are worthy of the attempt to take science fiction to a whole new level.

              The movie is a little 'outdated', but I have never failed to enjoy watching it! Highly original and thought provoking! I would love to see a 'prequel' concerning the culture of the Krell during their peak. Could be a real block buster, depending on who does the production, and their personal emotional investment in the project!

                One of the defining movies in the sci-fi futuristic genre. Robby the Robot, a very young Anne Francis among an amazing cast of actors, long-dead advanced civilization with amazing technology falling into human hands as a "dark side" of the force with a touch of Shakespeare, etc. What more could you ask? Elements echoed later by Star Trek, Stargate:Atlantis, Star Wars. Worth seeing over and over again; Simply spellbinding each and every time.
