This film was beautifully directed by camera whiz Byron Haskin, and ithas a fine literate script, one of the best supporting casts everassembled for a sci-fi movie and very good production values. Thequestion is why the critics did not appreciate it. I believe the answeris simple: they also disliked...
This thriller from director Byron Haskin and producer George Pal is a fairlyunderstated effort considering some of their other features were "The NakedJungle" and "War of the Worlds." The terror here is implied and there areprecious few special effect sequences. The story concerns superintelligenc...
This is my favorite from the George Hamilton collection. It has all theplots and turns you need to keep changing your mind on which is the badguy(s) . Everyone acts well; however it is George Hamilton there holds itall together. So get out your popcorn and remember, that to watch thismovie, "you've ...
Although the setting is scientific, and I've seen this described asscience-fiction, "The Power" is arguably a very earlyrationalisation/updateof the superhero genre. In this case the person with the superpowers is asupervillain, the power is telekinesis, and no lycra longjohns are enteredinto, as th...
This 1968 film is actually NOT a made-for-TV movie, but was a propertheatrical release by none other than George Pal (producer of The TimeMachine, The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao, and several other fantasy films).And the IMDb plot summary is completely off the mark. This is a sciencefantasy/mystery/ suspense...
One of those "made for TV" movies (1968) I find unforgettable. A real"10."Have been able to catch it maybe three times through the years and ithasheld up beautifully. What a cast! It's thoroughly enjoyable,intelligent,believable in its concept, with exceptional special effects for itstime --altho...
This is a decent science fiction movie based on a solid story idea thatstays on target. It is a well executed basic movie without big budgeteffects. To its credit it does not go off on silly tangents such asoverdone love stories (perfunctory graphic sex was still rare in thisera), connecting the pow...
I loved this movie as a kid and an adult.I thought it was well done and for the negative reviewers who said itwas confusing, I understood it as a child. Are you dense or something?Good acting, subtle death scenes, great action, albeit slow, but worthviewing. A nice build up and to the reviewer who s...
If you tuned in after it started you'd think it was a cheap TV moviebecause it stars George Hamilton, it was shot in LA, the direction isthe work of a hack, and the photography is so glossy and flat.But the truth is that this is one weird and unsettling movie. It's astory about Hamilton, an egghead ...
This story was first televised live during the summer of 1956 on one ofthe high quality drama series that flourished during the 1950's.Perhaps it was The United States Steel Hour. I was an eleven year oldkid at the time and was fascinated with the basic plot. I have searchedfor information about the...
George Pal's/Byron Haskin's version of "The Power" (based on the goodnovel by Frank Robinson, not the baseball player) is actually prettyentertaining and thrilling despite the relatively poor productionvalues - quite a bit of 1960s cheesiness - but still the cast ofstalwarts gives it all and it is p...
Possible Spoilers!I was meaning to get an early night but when this came on, late last nighton TCM I found I had to sit through it to the end. A jumble of differentstyles made this a little disconcerting but it stands alone purely as anactioner without reference to the sci-fi bits.George Hamilton ge...
George Pal proved his feeling for good stories one more time afterhaving produced "the time machine" and "Dr. Lao". An intelligent storyabout the fight between two para-psychological persons, one you don'tknow and the other not knowing being one. Superb cast, some notimportant "mistakies", but brill...
This interesting sci fi film stars George Hamilton and SuzannePleshette, and features some former stars/near stars who had seenbetter days: Yvonne DeCarlo, Richard Carlson, Aldo Ray, and GaryMerrill (in a real stepdown from All About Eve). Among the older stars,Michael Rennie has a larger supporting...
POSSIBLE SPOILERSTHE POWER is a sci-fi mystery thriller that begins brightly, but quicklygets bogged down in a rather lengthy (and ordinary) man-on-the-run segmentthat seems to serve very little purpose other than to pad out the movie'srunning time.George Hamilton is a little too pretty to be comple...
--psychokinesis, of which TK is a manifestation. Very well, Iquibble...I can't quite call this film a guilty pleasure. I review only becauseit made an impression on me when first broadcast Stateside in primetime, making me feel obliged nearly 40 years later to view it uncut andwithout commercial int...
I am NOT giving a SPOILER in my comments, however I have 2 comments aboutthe end of the movie. A major scene in the book was put in differentsurroundings in the movie and the hero Jim Tanner has adifferent point-of-view at the end of the movie vs. the book.However, otherwise, the movie was brought ...
Hamilton leads a better than average cast in this very average sci-fioutingproduced by veteran George Pal. Signs of the times abound in this 60sfeature that, at times, seems like a Bond flick(especially the partyscene).Pal's career was in a slump in the mid to late 60s and this was to be hisbig scr...
Long before David Cronenberg's SCANNERS (or even STEREO, the short thatpreceded SCANNERS), there was THE POWER. Part murder mystery, partsci-fi shocker, THE POWER boasts George Hamilton's finest performanceever (which I say because I'm not a big fan of his, but I liked himhere) as well as some taut ...
The Mid-60's was a troubling time for Movies in that the Culture waschanging so fast in attitudes and style that most times Hollywood wasnot able to keep up and had difficulty making and marketing Films thatlooked contemporary. This is a good example of this shortcoming.It looks so Hollywood and has...
A classic example of how good science fiction should also be categorizedasjust good fiction; the science is just the means to an end ... telling astory.Mind control is the basic premise, but the movie is fundamentally aboutthecorrupting effect of power on the human psyche. "The Power" also succeedsa...
They say the devil's in the details. He must have shot this movie,because absolutely no attention was paid to detail in any way. I havenoticed in other movies that George Pal is good at making scenes fullof flashy, hi-tech gadgets, but not at making people act in believableways. "The Power" dwarfs a...
A panel of brilliant professors studying human endurance for the spaceprogram discover one of their colleagues harbors transcendental powersand is out to kill each one of them (causing heart attacks by the forceof his mind). A good example of the major studio B-picture: most of thebudget has gone in...
I rate this film as excellent, simply because it is so unique asscience fiction goes. While particulars such as telekinesis are not inthemselves very unique to the genre (and can often be trite and silly),when combined with the central theme of fear, is VERY unique. I cannotthink of a single movie, ...
I really can't understand why "The Power" isn't more highly regardedthan it is. It has a great story, is beautifully photographed andwell-directed, and has one of the best casts ever assembled for asci-fi movie.Hamilton and Pleshette are members of an academic committee. As thestory develops, the co...
