The Jupiter Menace Film Details
Overview: A documentary that examines the theory that the world is doomed and nothing can be done about it.
Review: And it just gets better with age, The Music is so bad it’s good, the acting is so bad it’s good and the plot….well. it seems that it was put together by a random plot generator, or rather a random conspiracy generator. The start is promising enough, some nice model work, a cool synthesizer re-working of Holst’s Mars the bringer of war, a pre-credit sequence where some guy gets his heart cut out. Then George Kennedy pops up in a safari suit and it all goes to pot. The Bible prophecies? Emerging science? Psychics the world over? What does it all mean and what does it have to do with Jupiter and why is it so menacing? I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say, you never find out. A quasi biblical scene seems to arrive from another movie, not actually an account from any part of the bible but an amalgam of a few with a nameless prophet and a craven idol, it seems to be making a point .but you never find out what that might be. Then George comes back to tell us about more biblical prophecy that probably won’t come true ..then oh then .The guy who programmed the bible into this Micro-bee and then the computer told him that the world would end, by an earthquake, so cool. I must say that the planet fly-bys are very good especially for the time. Worth watching if just for the Psychic’s moustache and the amazing prediction and simulation of an earthquake in a computer .before that was possible.
