Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Tru-Stereo Process (3-D) utilized here is easy on the eyes, coming across clearly at all times. To the picture's credit no 3-D gimmicks were employed."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"3-D raises the rating a mini-bar...but what a George Nader classic this is!"
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"OK, it''s cheesy, it's stupid, it's cheap, it''s nearly inept, but, by golly, it's a hoot to watch."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Always gets unintended laughs from audiences"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"'For the budget and for the time' said Tucker, 'I felt I had achieved greatness'."
‑ , Time Out
"One of the most hackneyed, and lowest-budgeted, science-fiction films ever made."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A triumph of ineptitude, a bona fide turkey that deserves to be served up on the same table as anything by Ed Wood."
‑ , Film4
"All hail the Robot Monster."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"A really terrible monster movie, but a really entertaining viewing experience."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"A man in a gorilla suit with a diving helmet and a bubble machine. Trash nirvana."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
