Synopsis

The Day The Earth Stood Still depicts the arrival of an alien dignitary, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who has come to earth with his deadly robot, Gort (Lock Martin), to deliver the message that earthlings must stop warring among themselves--or else. After being shot at by military guards, Klaatu is brought to a Washington, D.C. hospital, where he begs a sympathetic but frank Major White (Robert Osterloh) to gather all the world's leaders so he can tell them more specifically what he has come to warn them about. Losing patience, Klaatu slips into the human world, adapting a false identity and living at a boarding house where he meets a smart woman with a conscience and her inquisitive son. Both mother and son soon find themselves embroiled in the complex mystery of Klaatu, his message and the government's witch hunt for the alien.

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.
