Critic Reviews for The Phantom Planet

Audience reviews for the phantom planet.

This is the worst sci-fi ever! Plan 9 is a true masterpiece if compare with this. Poor Richard Kiel as the Solarite.

phantom rotten tomatoes

This movie is stupid and nonsensical, the guy lands on some planet and shrinks to the tiny size of the rest of the people there, and they put him through some crazy trials and then need his help against their enemy, and other sci-fi type stuff happens, but you keep wondering what the point is and when the story is going to get anywhere, but it doesn't. This is a horrible movie.

Seems much longer than it actually is due to it being so incredibly boring. Like most sci-fi around this time, the "special effects" are cheesy and the story is dime-a-dozen and lame. Since it sucks, you can expect Richard Kiel to be in it somewhere...and there he is!

Anyone ever heard of Plan 9 From Outer Space? The most confused film ever created? Ed Wood's masterpiece? Often cited as the worst film of all time? Of course you have. And, well, if you enjoyed that, then this one surely is for you. Phantom Planet is a prime example of a screenwriter and a director who just made up what they were doing as they went along. Just plain silly. 08/100
