Storyline

Hoping to overthrow his brother as ruler of the planet Metropolis, the evil Graal enlists the help of the insane Dr. Kraspin, who has invented a chemical capable of turning an ordinary person into a perfect soldier. They test this chemical on the pilot Golob, turning the unsuspecting victim into a mindless but indestructable automaton possessing superhuman strength. The people of Metropolis must somehow outwit Graal before he can create an army of these soldiers, or their planet will be destroyed. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

CAUTION Worst ever space-movie ahead.
5 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've read good(?)reviews about The Humanoid(1979)and I saw this "FILM" few days ago..I could not believe my eyes! It was SO BAD,Worst ever.No class,no style,no nothing.Just waste of time and film.I really was expecting a good sci-fi movie,but the very first frame revealed the ugly truth! This was advertised as an "Italian Star Wars".How such name as Richard Kiel would guarantee a good movie is beyond me.And Ennio Morricone's music,he has made better scores.If one has intentions of making a rip-off,then make a good rip-off! Study the movies,make GOOD costumes,get GOOD actors,you know the drill.Humanoid is clearly made in haste,to get some money.Yes there was sand,rocks,lasers,black helmets,Force-like mind control,spaceships,dog-robot,futuristic towns and all that but so poorly executed that I felt shame for the producers of the film.While watching this "masterpiece" I kept waiting if it would get any better but it got worse by the minute.After an hour of watching I turned the TV off and went to bed.The late time when it aired should have been a sign...
