  1. Ethan's rating of the film First Man into Space

    This is a decent monster movie that is definitely a by product of the time it was made.

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film First Man into Space

    The papers want to know whose shirts you wear.

  3. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film First Man into Space

    Easily the worst of the “Monsters and Madmen” criterion films (thus far at least). There were some moments, like the monster wandering the corridors, that were pure perfect 50s sci-fi B-movie that I couldn’t help but feel an odd and surreal sense of wonder. It was moments like that, that created that specific feeling, where I think I understood the cult appreciation of these films, at least to some degree.

  4. Andrew Miller's rating of the film First Man into Space

    He may be a monster, but not ALL monster.

  5. Karthik's rating of the film First Man into Space

    A movie that points up Durgnat's claim that pulp can be alarmingly fertile with all sorts of unresolved little questions jostling with each other. So Sibling Rivalry, with the Woman in the Middle (who is Renunciation of Adventure as in many Westerns), Social Hubris & its Dangers, Individual Hubris & its Punishment all rub random elbows with each other & it all ends with a man walking off with a woman down a corridor

  6. mjgildea's rating of the film First Man into Space

    3 1/2 stars. First Man Into Space started off as a stock footage Frankenstein but left me intrigued by the end. A great example of a 50s B-movie with one of the most impressive monsters I've ever seen.

  7. D/R/W's rating of the film First Man into Space

    As a 50s B sci-fi / horror flick, it does it's job to a tee. The set up is great, the soundtrack perfectly sets the mood, and the gory bits are really out there for the late 50s. A perfect double feature along side Fiend Without A Face!

  8. César's rating of the film First Man into Space

    The pace and story in the first half are top notch but it falls flat in the second half due to bad make-up and wooden directing. All in all pretty enjoyable though.

  9. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film First Man into Space

    50s sci-fi B-movie from director Robert Day is entertaining enough for B-movie fans, but far from the best. A fairly conventional rocket melodrama in its first half, and a pretty basic monster movie in its second - though it does have its original elements, and is surprisingly gruesome considering when it was made.
