The Reviews for 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957) 720p

Great monster effects. See it for that, and nothing else.Reviewed byAnonymousRunnerVote: 5/10

Ray Harryhausen, the king of stop motion animation, presents a wonderfully realized creature from Venus in this film. That is the one and only reason to see 20 Million Miles to Earth. Everything else in the film is, frankly, a train wreck.

The entire plot consists of nothing more than rocket ship crashes, creature escapes, gotta find the creature; and that's all in the first 10 minutes. The rest of the film is simply a showcase for a very talented animator. Scenes involving the creature and the actors are very nearly seamless, and really allow you to suspend your disbelief and become immersed in the adventure.

The writers make a few attempts at subplots, like the boy who thinks Texas is a cowboy country near America, and a half-hearted romantic interest. However, none of that goes anywhere interesting, and everything always falls back on the monster chase. The entire film ends up seeming like nothing more than a delivery vehicle for the final line of dialog, which is nearly the only thoughtful writing in the script. The actors do an admirable job with the material they're given, but a bad script is still a bad script.

As a one-shot viewing, the film can entertain nicely. The monster looks great and there are at least a couple good action scenes. If that's all you need, that's what 20 Million Miles to Earth has to offer.

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!)...

This is a simple enough film. Rocket returning from Venus crashes nearSicily and a foetal thing grows to become a giant lizardy humanoid typething. The acting is ordinary and the script predictable.

What makes it better than average for a 1950s monster movie is the RayHarryhausen animated Venusian, called a Ymir here. Photographed inatmospheric black and white, its progress from small caged creature to beingloose and dangerous on the streets of Rome and fighting an elephant isengrossing. You can't help rooting for the Ymir, attacked along the way bydogs and soldiers. The Ymir becomes a character like Frankenstein's creationor the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Excellent work by Harryhausen, andfar more interesting than the CGI dinosaurs from Spielberg's over praised(and underwhelming) Jurassic Park trilogy.
