Another "diversification" dud from producer Michael Carreres, infinitely better than SLAVE GIRLS (which says nothing) but still an ill-conceived misfire. Even the presence of stalwarts Michael Ripper and Adrienne Corri are unable to save it. The comparison to Gerry and Sylvia Anderson is an apt one, but that team's JOURNEY TO THE FAR SIDE OF THE SUN, made around the same time, blasts this mediocre Hammer bunt out of the galaxy. Director Roy Ward Baker, fresh from his excellent work on QUATERMASS AND THE PIT, does nothing to give the dullness a lift and the movie marks the beginning of a downward slide in his work. The flick is further sunk by the unctuous hamming of American actor James Olson, who had done well in Robert Wise's Science Fiction masterpiece THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN but proved a dead weight in this and his other Hammer film, CRESCENDO. 4/10 POOR.
