This was Roger Corman's most expensive feature up to that time, costing $2 million. Corman's production company, New World Pictures, was known for its low-budget adventure movies, but when Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) was released and set a new standard in genre movies, he realized he had to up his game. Most of the budget was spent on salaries for Robert Vaughn and George Peppard, who both had high asking prices. Corman approached several companies to do the special effects, but none could do it for less than the entire $2 million production budget. Corman then decided to create his own in-house special effects department, which would employ a young James Cameron. See more »

Mister, are you a bad man?
I don't think the way you Akira do. If you think different, you get called "bad."
How DO you feel?
Mister, were you bad when you were little?
I was never that little.

In television airings of this film, the shots of Saint-Exmin (Sybil Danning) reclining in the cockpit of her spaceship often include an additional control panel matted into the scene to conceal her otherwise amply displayed bust. See more »
John Boy from the Waltons goes out and recruits mercenaries to help fight off an evil space warlord. Among those he gets to help are the A-Team's Hannibal, the bad guy from Superman III, and Stirba the werewolf bitch. It's a fun cast. Roger Corman's sci-fi remake of Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven is also the best Star Wars knockoff of the many that came out in the late '70s and early '80s. While many have called this movie cheap-looking, it's actually fairly impressive for a Corman production. He would reuse these sets and some footage for future crappier low-budgeters. This is a fun sci-fi adventure movie that should entertain you if you don't take it all so seriously.
