The Reviews for 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957) 1080p

20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH (Nathan Juran, 1957) **1/2Reviewed byMARIO GAUCIVote: 6/10

This is yet another Charles H. Schneer/Ray Harryhausen sci-fi title which, however, emerges to be a lesser effort than their two previous black-and-white outings – IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA (1955) and EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS (1956).

Two factors which let the film down is the second-rate cast (the silly love-hate relationship between the protagonists feels entirely misplaced) and the Italian setting. The latter may have been an interesting concept – to take the horror and mayhem away from overly-familiar surroundings (though we still get to see numerous U.S. brass at the helm of the requisite army mobilization tactics!). Yet, the whole rustic ambiance – with the locals themselves a combination of simple-minded fisher-folk and flustered officials, to say nothing of a kid with a grating cowboy obsession (none of whom can muster a decent accent!) – somehow doesn’t suit the ‘intelligent’ proceedings; even the zoologist who proposes to study the alien creature comes across as a benign presence, certainly more dotty than deranged!

While the scaly Venusian creature itself (cleverly made to escalate in size as a side-effect of Earth’s atmosphere) – subsequently called Ymir but never actually referred to by this name! – is a wonderful creation (surely Harryhausen’s first great ‘monster’), it’s also somewhat over-exposed during the course of the film. Its prototype was clearly King Kong – and, accordingly, the Ymir is largely treated as a misunderstood beast – but it doesn’t develop in any significant way, since it’s not made to interact with humans at all other than on a strict pursuer-and-pursued basis!

The initial effect of the crash-landing spaceship is rather variably achieved but, as I said, the monster’s movements are impeccable: most effective, perhaps, is the scene where it’s cornered inside a barn (aided by moody lighting and the inherent suspense of the situation). However, the fight between the Ymir and an elephant on the streets of Rome is also very well done – and the climax set inside the Colisseum (where the creature valiantly stands up to the relentless military onslaught) is justly celebrated, if slightly overstretched for its purpose.

In the end, to be perfectly blunt, the film isn’t particularly worthy of a “Special Edition” (in view of the superior work Schneer and Harryhausen have done – that is, unless Columbia intends to revisit all of their fantasy titles) and, even if I only own a DivX copy of it, I doubt I’ll be springing for the upcoming 2-Disc edition (which will also include a newly-colorized version supervised by Harryhausen himself!)...

Great effects, weak film.Reviewed byBA_HarrisonVote: 4/10

Having suffered the indignation of being snatched from his home planet, taken to Earth and stuck in a cage, a rapidly growing scaly alien escapes to look for food, and is pursued by the authorities who poke and prod him until he understandably fights back.

Just because a film boasts impressive special effects doesn't automatically make it a classic. 20 Million Miles To Earth features exceptional stop-motion animation work by Ray Harryhausen, whose Venusian lizard, the Ymir, is a delight to behold, but the film suffers from a tedious plot that clearly takes its cues from King Kong but which is never developed beyond its basic 'monster-on-the-rampage' scenario.

Despite one or two memorable set pieces, such as the crash of a huge spacecraft and the sight of the Ymir in a struggle to the death with an elephant, 20 Millions Miles to Earth is a frustratingly dull film on the whole, suffering from predictable action, remarkably unlikeable characters ('hero' Col. Robert Calder is brash and obnoxious and Pepe the cowboy obsessed kid is a particularly annoying brat) and a daft finale in which US soldiers recklessly destroy part of the Coliseum in order to kill the beast.

Excellent example of the work of Ray HarryhausenReviewed byspamarammaVote: 8/10

This movie is a prime example of the work of one of the masters of stop-motion animation, a form of art that is rapidly being supplanted by CGI. Ray Harryhausen was the ultimate master of this technique, having trained under the likes of Willis O'Brian. His work is still the inspiration for many of the special effects wizards today. Granted, the movies of the 1950's do seem stilted and silly, but quite frankly, the worst of them are probably still superior to most of the direct-to-video drek produced today, and likely better than most of the films produced by major studios. I was raised on films such as 20 Million Miles to Earth and have no problem letting my child watch films like this. I cannot say the same for most of what is released today. 20 Million Miles to Earth is a unique, fun film. It, like others of its kind, comes from a different era, when people were not as jaded and world-savvy as they are today. Save the critical eye for the more cynical, overproduced films of today. Enjoy it for what it is.
