Synopsis

The all-time classic sci-fi masterpiece, The Day the Earth Stood Still is coming back as a 2-disc special edition DVD featuring a new master and all new documentaries and other VAM. Considered one of the great sci-fi movies of all time, Robert Wise's movie was a metaphor for McCarthyism in America as well as a plea for peace in the atomic age. Starring Michael Rennie as Klaatu and featuring Gort the giant robot. Remember these words "Klaatu, Barada, Nikto!"

Reviews

Ann Hornaday Washington Post | December 12, 2008

Solemn, sober and efficient, The Day the Earth Stood Still gets the job done and moves on.

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | December 12, 2008

Even if you know the original by heart, the new Earth has a couple of surprises in store, although the message remains the same: Watch it, Man.
