John Sayles was asked by Roger Corman to adapt The Seven Samurai into asci fi picture and the result is this delightfully inventivetongue-in-cheek romp.

What is most enjoyable to me about the film is the fact that everymercenary hired by the peaceful "villagers" has a distinct personalityand style and their motivations clearly defined. George Peppard, as theonly human among them, is laid back and charming. Morgan Woodward seemsto be having a grand old time playing the vengeful lizard-man--dig hisgonzo war-cry during the climactic battle! Robert Vaughn does seem abit bored but he effectively communicates his character's unpleasantcoldness. Sybill Danning simply has one of the most stunning bodies toever be stuffed into a styrofoam viking costume, even if she can't act.Add to these characters two elfin aliens who communicate thru heat (theKelvin, wink, wink) and a troupe of what looks like Mimes called"Nestor" who operate sort of like the collectivist Borg from Star Trekand in disposition seem to anticipate the infectious optimism andcuriosity of Mr Data as well.When first introduced they explain, "Webelieve you are seeking mercenaries for an adventure. We would like toparticipate." The costumes, sets and spfx are quite striking thoughobviously done on a low budget but that hardly detracts from the fun.Special mention must be made of John Saxon who, as the evil scourge ofthe galaxy Lord Sador, grabs his opportunity to chew the scenery withamusing gusto. Check the sequence where he gets to enact what must beevery actors dream since Dr Strangelove: to have a battle with his ownrebellious arm! He plays it all-out, with just the right mix of comicbook theatrics and menacing humor. It is sometimes just enjoyable towatch veteran actors cut loose and have a good time, the spirit isinfectious, as it certainly is with this film. Fun for the whole familyas well as bonged-out college students and other usually disparagingtypes.

Now this is interesting. The movie is another producer's spin on StarWars; Star Wars obviously being made by George Lucas. The name 'GeorgeLucas' being synonymous with 'epic-scale effects budget.' Battle Beyondthe Stars was produced by Roger Corman. The name 'Roger Corman' beingsynonymous with 'shoe-string budget.'

Let me break from my usual critique style to go over some of the plot -Sador (John Saxon) feels the need to conquer, and he's so powerful thathe decides to conquer an essentially helpless (not to mention useless)civilization. But instead of conquering, he courteously shows up toconveniently schedule his conquest a week from now in case they want tomount some sort of defense. (Where's Arnold when you need him? 'I'll beback!')

In response, Shad takes a road trip (space trip?) in Nell the only shipon the planet to round up some misfits (mercenaries--same thing) whohappen to be in the neighborhood. Everyone is interestingly (clichély)unique and has their own reasons for wanting to fight, not to mentionthe actors have a wide range of performances ranging from sliced ham tofrighteningly Shakespearian seriousness. And, ah to hell with it, youget the idea. Point is, I have every reason to really hate the plot,hate the characters (Good God, I've hated characters for much muchless), hate this movie . . . but I dunno, I don't really mind it.

Through all its narrative faults, Battle Beyond the Stars happens tohit the right goofball mixture of elements from a surprisingly goodscore by young 'Jamie Horner' to notably weird spaceships and decenteffects (for an early 80s low-budget flick) to wacky and tamecharacters that somehow summons a funky B-movie charm. For the life ofme, I can't hate this movie despite the plot that begs me to bash it tooblivion with the Stellar Converter.

The spaceship, Nell, proved to be the highpoint of the film . . . notbecause of the ship's design, rather because of its personality (noreally.)

I've always wanted to see a spaceship with an attitude (the Star Trekequivalent of Kit from Knight Rider?) A perfect counterpoint to thenaivety of Shad, flawlessly delivered by Richard Thomas. If I weren'tconstantly laughing at the characters cluelessness, I'd want to slapthat kid around, and I'd sure as hell wouldn't want to charge him withsaving my planet. I'd like to die with my dignity, thank you.

Battle Beyond the Stars has a number of positive attributes (especiallyconsidering the budget and experience of most people involved on thefilm at the time), it has a number of reasons to be proud, and it mostdefinitely has a number of charms that surpass its truckload of flaws.I consider Battle Beyond the Stars the spending benchmark for allsci-fi flicks. I mean, if Corman can entertain me with Hollywood pocketchange, Lucas, the Wachowskis, and the other heavy spenders better blowmy socks off with their ungodly sized budgets . . .

Of all the post "Star Wars" films, this one is decidedly the best of itsilk. The dependable storyline, stalwart acting and sometimes humorousspecial effects (LOVE the female-designed spaceship!) all make for anentertaining film. For all the flak it has received (even getting a "Dog ofthe Week" label from Siskel and Ebert upon its initial release), it has forall intents and purposes kept itself in the memories of all who have seen itand is most definitely a fantasy that is worthy of seeing again andagain.
