It was quite surprising to me that when I looked this movie up on Wikipedia out of curiosity, it apparently got fairly decent reviews:

Blockbuster Entertainment gave the film four stars. Film critic Leonard Maltin gave the film three stars in his review, summarizing it as an ". . . underrated mystery. . . . An exquisitely tailored, sharply edited sleeper." Morgan Zabroff for Famous Monsters of Filmland declared the film "One of the most brilliant films to come from England in 1964", as well as one of the most underrated films of its genre."

Strange, huh? Also, it supposedly almost got an X rating. I wonder why? I read on here that the original version had a good bit of nudity, was that enough at that time to garner an X rating? Seems off to me, but I don't know.

WOW! Bill Corbett really nailed the Scorsese-esque di Vinci Wise Guy! Without the credits I never would have known it was Bill.

I love it when David Warner explains that the Knights are "dedicated to bringing mankind out of the Dark Ages; into an age of Enlightenment."
Pretty sure that during the Dark Ages no one referred to them as the Dark Ages.
But that's the least of this film's problems.

Ignoring the riffs- the film's actual dialog is-
"Is the prisoner from another world ready to hear the charges against him?"
"Charges? What charges?"
"I will ask the questions. Are you ready to stand trial?"
"It seems I have no choice. But first, I want to know what I'm charged with."
They could just repeat these lines to infinity.... and BEYOND!

I was never a huge Prof. Bobo fan but I do believe that his courtroom scenes are his finest hour.

Hey, in defense of this film, I bet if I were 5 years old (and maybe back in the 60s), this would rock. Or uh, be somewhat entertaining. Anyone with 5 year-olds care to chime in?

So...to keep myself from falling into an existential void during this final air battle, I started thinking about the decision to make this half-hour battle. I mean, really, would this be interesting to anyone? It really is at least 30 minutes, and there's very little going on. You have people staring up at the sky and cheering every so often. Then, you have the same four repeated scenes...over and over. Children wouldn't be interested in this...or at least, I can't imagine that they would be for this long. So...is it directed toward children? If not, I can't imagine adults enjoying this, either.

Or...do the Japanese just have a different definition of what makes an entertaining movie?

OMG!! @ 1:14:29 What is a giant figure of Adolph Hitler doing on the front of that Japanese building!? I'd love an explanation, 'cause that's just plain wrong.
