His work on food production hold the prospect of world peace. The score, which is quite dramatic, has some nice presence and power behind it and the sound effects sound strong enough to enhance the scenes that they're used in, particularly in the big finale. One commenter complains of it being a 50's Sci-Fi with no name actors. That complaint aside, this is otherwise a very nice Blu-ray release of a genuinely obscure but also very interesting monster movie that's languished in a vault for far too long. The scenes when he travels underwater are surreally effective.
Well I saw this movie several times in the 50's. Isn't it simpler and wiser to get rid of them instead? Quote: It's not easy being a tiny niche market. Aside from some very minor shimmer, there are no authoring defects to note and no problems with compression artifacts, edge enhancement or noise reduction. His alter-ego, Robo-Jeremy becomes the cold intellect of managed societies i. The resulting being is large, strong, and develops many strange powers.
Extras: A simple menu and chapter selections are provided but there are no extra features included on this release. Dialogue is clean and clear and while some scenes are a little flat, this is due to the age and original elements used in the recording and doesn't appear to be anything related to the disc itself. But variety is the spice of life, so you might like it better. Human Jeremy is the loving humanitarian working for world peace. Looks worlds better than previous versions I've seen before. Anyhow now that I revealed my age I should mention that if you missed the 50's Sci-Fi while they were new releases you sure missed some fantastic fun. He heads to Europe to collect his award and once he arrives back in New York City, he's promptly run over by a giant truck while trying to retrieve poor Billy's toy plane when it falls into a roadway.

His father William, a brilliant brain surgeon, works on the body in secret before burial; later revealing to his other son Henry that he has the brain on life support and hopes to encase it in a robot body! Most likely this is because prints of this film I've seen prior to this new Olive Film release were so scratchy and murky that much of the suit's impressive details were too washed out to see.

The design of the Colossus is very cool and quite unique. Jeremy steps into a street to retrieve his son Billy's toy airplane. Robo-J furious with his father for lying that they died too.
