Film Review

20 Million Miles to Earth is a great 50's sci fi movie. Its only major flaw is how overkilled its story actually is. An alien comes to earth, grows huge, then attacks the city. Its a good little flick, but blends in with other movies of the era.The stop-motion battle between the elephant and the alien is by far the highlight of the film. As usual Ray Harryhausen effects are breathtaking, and you find yourself giving sympathy to the alien. The alien is just now experiencing a new world and he is being hunted.I recommend for genre fans (like me) but not the average movie goer 7/10

As stated in many comments before this is truly a 'so bad it's good' classic SiFi B film. However, it has the glorious talents of the remarkable Mr. Harryhausen. Being of the generation before CGI, (although this film actually per-dates me :D) I can remember waiting for a Harryhausen film to come to the cinema with bated breath. He is responsible for the beginning of my love affair with special effect, as I suspect is the same with most of my generation.I have just watched the colourised version, and although done very well I feel it has lost 'something' in the translation – atmosphere! (like Scrooge -1951)Without debate, Harryhausen is a deserved legend in cinema. So, If you are into classic SiFi B films, this one is a must – it has it all – right down to the horrendous and constant music score:D

Twenty Million Miles from Earth is about an American spaceship which crashes off the coast of Sicily, killing nearly all of the crew save three survivors: two crew members (one dies soon afterward), a colonel, and a baby creature from the planet Venus. The creature gets loose of course and grows very quickly, causing it to spread mayhem in the city of Rome.I expected hammy acting, bad creature effects and long drawn-out dialog that would go nowhere. Was I ever wrong! This is a surprisingly good movie! Considering that this was decades before CGI, the stop-action motion of the very detailed creature was admirable and believable. The acting was solid and nowhere did the story drag – it went smoothly from one well-planned action sequence to the next. There were a few times when the scale of the creature looked out of whack, and the size of the elephant also looked much larger than I think even an African elephant really is. Oh, and the fight sequence between the creature and the elephant…
