"Moon Zero Two" is not the best science fiction movie ever made, but I'll tell you one thing, it IS THE funkiest, so what are we supposed to do? Let's Rock!
As a matter of fact, there's more than one awkward scene!
The heavy of the film is the 6'7" Bernard Bresslaw as Harry! The big guy passed away in 1993 at the age of 59!
As you can readily see, it wasn't all serious all the time for Bernie! In a series of 10 "Carry On" films with titles like "Carry On Cowboy," "Carry On Screaming!," or "Carry On Girls," that were released between 1966 and 1975, Bernard played an array of different characters, but there was always a running gag that featured him bumping his 6'7" cranium into something!
You've got to admit, the future looks pretty groovy!
The Saloon and the dance numbers are without a doubt, the highlight of the film. The freakin' soundtrack was written by Don Ellis, a jazz trumpeter who first played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra before becoming a world class Avant-Garde musician of the highest degree.
We'll never know what Don would have really accomplished because he passed away in 1978 at the age of 44. This is the cover of his 1967 release, "Electric Bath."
James "Andromeda Strain" Olson is Captain William H. Kemp, and right about here, he gets to throw out the musical jab at the current state of MOR or middle of the road music, when he states that his drink tastes like "Tijuana Brass Polish!"
There is a story about a group of criminals intent on cashing in on a blue sapphire encrusted asteroid!
Pelon' Warren Mitchell has the role of kingpin ringleader J.J. Hubbard! Warren's bigoted character "Alf Garnett" in "Till Death Us Do Part" in 1965, led to the birth of "All in the Family" and was the model for Carroll O'Connor's iconic character Archie Bunker!
This looks like an outfit right out of Freddie Mercury's closet!
Back to the bar one more time!! They do such a great job, I feel compelled to let you know that the the bar dancers were, Sally Graham, Brenda Krippen, Irene Gorst, Jane Cunningham, Michelle Barry, and Sue Baumann! The upside down body you see flying through the scene is the result of an anti-gravity fight scene!
The Captain's navigator is Ori"Every Bastard A King"Levy as Korminski. So really, what do you think about those space suits?
I just really dig how complicated the composition of this shot is!
Adrienne "Devil Girl From Mars," "Zero One," "A Clockwork Orange" Corri is Elizabeth Murphy, and she's looking for her brother, and wants to enlist Captain Kemp to assist her in finding him! Her brother is out on Hell's half-acre of the moon somewhere mining, and hasn't been heard from for some time!
Anybody up for a rousing round of "Moonopoly?"
They finally find Elizabeth Murphy's brother, but he's not feeling very good!
Three guys in different coloured spacesuits ambush the Captain and Elizabeth and for some reason there's a machine equipped with some kind of sickle blades that comes into play, as The Captain and Elizabeth narrowly escape!
First it's really cold, then it gets really hot as the vehicle they use to try and get back to base runs out of fuel, and they almost don't make it!
See, it was the sapphire pirates who killed Elizabeth's brother for reasons way to convoluted for me to go into here!
Justice is served with everybody's favourite ending, KA..FFNN...BOOM!!!! Extra added bonus, Sapphire Blue explosion!!
