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.

Seven Samurai in SpaceReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 6/10

Space tyrant Sador (John Saxon) threatens the pacifist defenseless agricultural planet of Akir with his weapon Stellar Converter. He pledges to return after the harvest in seven risings of their sun as the planet's new master. The elders send young Shad (Richard Thomas) to find mercenaries willing to fight for limited wealth rewards. He recruits Nanelia (Darlanne Fluegel) escaping from her father in her weaponless ship, Space Cowboy from earth (George Peppard) whose customer has just been destroyed by Sador, rich assassin Gelt (Robert Vaughn) looking for a friendly harbor, a Valkyrie named Saint-Exmin (Sybil Danning) looking to prove herself in battle in her tiny ship, five telepathic alien clones from a single consciousness called Nestor and a reptilian slaver named Cayman looking for revenge.

It's cheap Roger Corman production with the bones of the great 'Seven Samurai' and the energetic F/X work of a newcomer named James Cameron. There is definitely cheesy goodness in this. It's a fun space thrill ride. There are some good performances. The writing isn't bad. The production is half cheese and half fun adventure. It all adds up to a fun competent 'Star Wars' inspired B-movie.

Roger Corman was executive producer for this enjoyable and wonderfully campysci-fi version of `The Magnificent Seven'. It even features Robert Vaughnas the same lost-his-nerve gunslinger he played in the original! JohnSayle's script is loaded with fine humor. Director Jimmy T. Murakamiobviously knew his film history, since the planet being attacked is called`Kira' -- a tribute to director Akira Kurasowa of `Seven Samurai', theinspiration for the original of this interesting trio offilms.

Richard Thomas, star of TV's rustic melodrama `The Waltons', plays thebrave young man who leaves his besieged home world to find mercenaries tofight against planet-conquering John Saxon. George Peppard plays `Cowboy',a space-going gunrunner with a Western fixation (another tribute to `Mag7'). Sybil Danning is a feisty female warrior with a costume that defiesdescription.

The special effects look a bit dated now, but that isn't the film's fault. Sam Jaffe (`The Day the Earth Stood Still') has a great part. Darlene Flugelis the attractive romantic interest for Thomas. James Horner's rousing scoreis a golden plus. When the movie was first released, sci-fi fansconsidered it a rip-off because it was released between `Star Wars - A NewHope' and `The Empire Strikes Back' -- tough competition.

Watch this movie as a double feature with `The Magnificent Seven' and you'reguaranteed a good time. I've done, and it works just fine . ..

Let me know if it works for you, okay?
