Overview

Capricorn One

Astronauts Charles Brubaker, John Walker, and Peter Willis (James Brolin, O.J. Simpson, and Sam Waterston, respectively) are hailed as heroes when they become the first men to be rocketed to Mars. Actually the space travelers are as phony as their mission controller, Dr. James Kelloway (Hal Holbrook); to avert a failure that might cost the space program its funding, the Mars-bound vessel has been sent up without a crew, while the helmeted astronauts sit on a movie soundstage, pretending to be in outer space for the benefit of the TV cameras. Unfortunately the Mars ship crashes on arrival, making the astronaut trio thoroughly expendable. Investigative reporter Robert Caulfield (Elliott Gould), who's smelled a rat all along, races against time to prevent NASA from "terminating" the hapless astronauts in order to cover up the conspiracy.

This is a good movie about the USA government attempting to hoax the world with a staged manned space flight to Mars. The film keeps us in our seats with moving action and suspense as the three astronauts attempt to escape their captors and reveal to the world what was really going on.

There are so many things wrong with this film, I countinued watching out of inertia. That doesn't mean this is a great awful movie that's fun to watch;it is not, its just bad. The plot is absolutely ludicrous, as is its unfolding on the screen. There are continuity problems you could fly a 747 through. Save for a Telly Savalas section involving a biplane, this "sci-fi" movie is as entertaing as reading the transcript of congressional hearing on the dangers of watching lead paint dry. The positives: Elliot Gould, Telly Savalas, Jerry goldsmiths score, But these are Slim Pickins in a two hour movie.
