Rotten: Aside from Severn Darden, who relishes his lip-smacking heavy character, the cast seems disinterested; even series stalwart Roddy McDowall looks bored.

Virgil: Teacher only reverted to type under provocation. He... he spoke like a slavemaster in the old days of our servitude when we were conditioned to mechanical obedience. He, uh, he uttered a negative, uh, imperative. Caesar: Could you put that into words which even Caesar could understand? Virgil: Uh, he said, "No, Aldo, no!"

The seminal sci-fi classic spawned a series of increasingly duff sequels, and this is the last and worst. The script could've been written by a 14 year old boy; all ham-fisted analogies and running around with guns. Stupid and pointless.
