Rod Steiger does what he can to anchor this slightly dreary and depressing film version of Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man.

Interesting if not totally successful adaptation of Bradbury's stories.

Pablo Villaça
Cinema em Cena

Uma antologia mal disfarçada de unidade narrativa, o filme é terrivelmente datado e conta com um ritmo irregular, desperdiçando o material original de Bradbury.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A peculiar sci-fi film that was loosely adapted from a Ray Bradbury book of short stories.
