This review is from: The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
One of the best Science Fiction Movies of all time "D.E.S.S" never shows it's age. Story wise that is. Sure the special effects are not I.L.A.M calibre, but for the time they were state of the art. The STORY is what makes the movie. Harry Bates story is turned into movie magic by Edmund Norths screenplay.
Mankind is warned (Once again) that if they do not change their ways that it will lead to their destruction. If not by their own hand then by Michael Rennies. Patricia Neal over does it at the end of the movie, but I think that has more to do with Robert Wise' Direction than her acting. I think he wanted a bit more scare factor for the audience. I do not want to give away any more of the movie than necessary for those who have not seen it. Just to say it was a Timeless piece of celluloid then and plastic now.
