From Out Of Space... A Warning And An Ultimatum!

A spacecraft lands in Washington D.C. and an alien emerges, flanked by a menacing robot with destructive capabilities far beyond anyone's imagination. So begins the science-fiction thriller The Day The Earth Stood Still, a classic "atomic movie" from the 50s that would go on to inspire alien-invasion films for decades to come. Rebuffed in his efforts to meet the world's leaders and warn them of the earth's impending doom, the alien, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), takes to the streets.

Klaatu's plea for peace is embraced by a pretty, young woman (Patricia Neal) and an eminent scientist (Sam Jaffe), but the rest of humanity reacts with mistrust, fear and violence. With time running out, Klaatu is forced to demonstrate his awesome powers in a mind-boggling display, teaching all of mankind a lesson for the ages. Watch The Day The Earth Stood Still and and you will never forget these words - "Klaatu barada nikto!"

 The Day the Earth Stood Still - Blu Ray Edition

| | See all Caprice's reviews (3)

I already had this film on DVD but would recommend the Blu ray edition as the picture quality and sound are so much better. There are many extras with this disc. Several film commentaries, galleries and a making of, which includes a few comments from Patrica Neal - nice to see her. In my opinion this Robert Wise film is 100 times better than the new version which I shall NOT be purchasing. And well done to the studios for releasing this on Blu ray. Watch and enjoy. Karen S.

 A Classic - almost as good as the original story!

| | See all MadMacStew's reviews (2)

One of the all-time classic 'alien threat' SF films, sadly travestied by the eternally robotic Keanu Reeves in the apalling 2008 remake. The spurious love interest is to be expected from the Hollywood filming of any book, but what a shame that they didn't use the twist from the original Harry Bates story 'Farewell to the Master'. In the original, Gort (called Gnut in the text version) is about to leave in the spaceship, and is asked by the reporter to assure his master that Earth's intentions are benign. Gort/Gnut replies with the classic last line of the story -
"You misunderstand," the mighty robot had said. "I am the master".
