VERDICT – 4/5
1) A true steampunk sci-fi story from Jules Verne.
2) Robur – a great gentleman villain with noble intentions but an evil method. In fact by the end of the movie he doesn’t even appear as the bad guy. His grand plan of world peace at any cost reflects his grand character.
3) The audiences will be awed with the amazing airship Albatross with Victorian sci-fi gadgets.
4) Decent special effects for a 1961 movie.
Robur: I am a man unto myself, Mr. Prudent, who has declared war against war! That is my purpose, sir!
