Some evil aliens from the Sapphire planet have chosen earth to become step one of their expansion policies, but while these aliens have mighty space stations they can move through space without problems, they still lack a battle fleet, but as fate has it, an earth scientist, Doc Yamanaka, has developed a rocketship that fits the aliens' plans to the t. Of course, Doc Yamanaka won't give up his rocketship and convict earth to certain doom just like that, so the aliens also abduct his children and his assistant, to force the Doctor into submission.

Once on the aliens' spacestation, the Doctor delays finishing the rocketship from one day to the next, but he knows he can't delay it forever, and eventually he can't help himself but finishing it. Meanwhile, his kids and assistant have overcome their guards and now try to make an escape via his rocketship, but are captured and convicted to death, as is the Doctor.

Good thing then that intergalactic superhero Starman has been tracking the aliens from the Sapphire planet for weeks, and now having caught up with them, he clobbers them to a pulp while the Doctor, his kids and his assistant destroy their space station's controls, and in the finale they make good their escape in the Doctor's rocketship while the station is blown to kingdom come ...

 


A cut down and slightly Americanized version of a Japanese Super Giant-two parter (titles of the original episodes: Jinko Eisei to Jinrui no Hametsu and Uchutei to Jinko Eisei Gekitotsu, this movie is of course choppy at times and is plagued by quite a few plotholes - and yet I wouldn't claim that later cult director Teruo Ishii's artistic vision was compromised by re-editing the film. Fact is that this was little more than an underbudgeted science fiction effort made mainly for the kiddie market, and it should be watched with that in mind. This of course makes Attack from Space into exactly the film it actually is, a silly and campy exercise in the superhero and science fiction department, full of cheap sets and special effects, carried by less than perfect performances, but focused on action rather than words.

In other words, this is a rather bad movie - but it's also great if you're looking for something trashy.
