[Blu-ray Review] "Saturn 3" will be most of interest for camp enthusiasts and fans of all things sci-fi. A welcome addition to serious Blu-ray collections and supporters of Scream Factory's outstanding work.

Surprisingly entertaining sci-fi flick, but not really good.

More fun than anything, it's well worth a watch for Keitel's performance... and the robot's.

I saw this on TV a long time ago, and I'd forgotten what it was about, but reading the summary on here it sounds like everyone falls in love with Farrah… More
