The technology and sci-fi action are very dated in this film, but the moral and the interaction between the "good" alien and the people of earth are fresh and touching. I did feel as if the ending was rushed, although Klaatu's final speech is well-conceived.

This is a compelling film that proves that character and story are more important than special effects. The film did contain 17 smoking incidents, earning it a SmokeScreeners rating of 4 Butts! www.smokescreeners.org

Forget the remake, this is classic sci-fi at its best. You don't need flash when you have a gripping story and memorable characters.

klatuu barada nictoe (sp?) the magic words in army of darkness, was a reference to this movie. If its good enough for Mr. Raimi, its good enough for the rest of us. made during the hight of the cold war, it shows an alien who's none to happy with the way humanity has been behaving. It is a true classic, and I believe essential viewing for any classic movie fan. Please try and see it before the remake comes out. I fear it may only sully this films name.

One of the best sci-fi movies all time, this 1951 classic is a movie that holds up well and should not be overlooked. If you are into 50's sci-fi or enjoy a good sci-fi drama, this is it!
