Disney's attempt to jump on the Star Wars rip-off band wagon, this poorly executed sci fi has dreadfully cartoonish production design, a made for TV script and just feels cheap and shoddy all round. The "action" sequences in which a bunch of static robots shoot it out with a floating Pez dispenser are particularly feeble.

Can anyone say Star Wars rip off? When I saw this on TCM last night and I was under the impression that it had come out in the 60's. I thought it was pretty good for that era. Turns out, it was released in '79. It's Not good for that era.

Walt Disney Studios, in a very un-disney like move, was trying to grab onto the coat tail of the success of Star Wars and make money. They Failed. The Black Hole Bombed. The reason it failed was very simple: The Empire Strikes Back had just opened. The Black Hole is a decent movie. Good special effects, music, set design. Though I can't say much for the accuracy of the script or the acting, I can say that The Black Hole is a decent movie.
