Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Marooned wants desperately to be a taut, gripping suspense story of astronauts marooned in space due to a machinery malfunction, but it somehow misses the boat. Certainly Marooned deserves points for its determination to keep the atmosphere as realistic as possible, going so far as to eliminate any distracting musical underscoring. Unfortunately, this merely serves to point up the film's fatal flaw: it lacks sufficient dramatic and emotional tension. Director John Sturges and screenwriter Mayo Simon have doggedly pursued a vision of concentrating on the reality of the situation, but have therefore missed the opportunity for affecting drama. Worse, the filmmakers sell out their principles with a climax and ending that come out of left field. There are moments that do make an impact, most notably Lee Grant's emotional good-bye to her husband Richard Crenna, but there are too few of these, and Marooned starts to drag early on, feeling unending in places. The cast does a fine job, especially Grant, Crenna and Gene Hackman, and the technical aspects are top notch: Daniel L. Fapp's cinematography is aces, and Lawrence W. Butler's special effects, if perhaps not up to modern standards, are excellent.

    Exploration Is Never Without Risk

    It's 1971 and the United States launches ''Ironman One'', the first in a series of long duration space flights to pave the way for interplanetary deep space missions of the future. For 5 1/2 months astronauts Jim Pruett (Richard Crenna), Buzz Lloyd (Gene Hackman) and Clayton Stone (James Franciscus) conduct a rigorous and grueling science and engineering mission that reveals a lot about space flight that no one ever knew before. As things appear to be headed in a downward spiral, the Director of Manned Space, Charles Keith (Gregory Peck), orders the mission ended early. However, an unknown glitch in the spacecraft's propulsion system strands the crew in orbit with only 42 hours of oxygen remaining. As the Space Agency decides to abandon the crew to Fate, Senior Astronaut Ted Dougherty (David Janssen) uses his bulldog determination to convince Keith to launch a rescue mission, despite the seemingly overwhelming odds against it and the approaching Hurricane Alma. A noble sacrifice and surprise help from a Soviet Cosmonaut make this film reflect the words of the First Man to Fly in Space, Maj. Yuri A. Gagarin, Soviet Air Defense Forces, ''Mankind never gains anything without cost. There never has been a bloodless victory over Nature.''
