This 1961 film did not lack classic grand fantasy predecessors, most relevantly Disney&#39;s &quot;20,000 Leagues under the Sea&quot;. Not everything that followed reached that standard but nothing prepared me for this cheap* and ineffective effort. The economy nature of the sets - the flying craft itself- resembles the standard of children&#39;s television of the era. Even the great Vincent Price appears diminished appearing as he does in the reduced circumstances of this film.<br/><br/>This is B feature stuff in comparison with which the original Flash Gordon serials appear mightily impressive and certainly effective. Given the established high standards of Hollywood feature films and the skill at making low budgets for B features go a long way, it is unaccountable that something so comprehensively second rate in all departments could be released. Other reviewers complain about the weakness of the story. I couldn&#39;t summon up the interest to watch long enough to judge this.<br/><br/>*The budget for &quot;20,000 Leagues&quot; was $5m in 1954, the budget for &quot;Master of the World&quot; was $500,000 in 1961

Enjoyable low-budget romp based off of the Jules Verne novels Robur the Conqueror and Master of the World, but, oddly, using only the second one&#39;s title. Vincent Price stars as self-proclaimed &quot;master of the world&quot; Robur, inventor of a giant flying zeppelin named the Albatross, who abducts Charles Bronson&#39;s stoic police inspector and Henry Hull&#39;s blustery balloonist and his daughter, played by the fetching and strong-willed Mary Webster. Also along for the ride is Webster&#39;s idiotic, cowardly fiancé played by David Frankham who does nothing but whine and be a jerk.<br/><br/>The screenplay by Richard Matheson is on the talky side with little in the way of action, but it&#39;s intelligently written and has some extremely quotable scenes. Prince really sinks his teeth into the part of the determined and passionate Robur, providing a less manic and composed alternative to James Mason&#39;s intense Captain Nemo in Disney&#39;s earlier 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.<br/><br/>Although Matheson insisted Charles Bronson was &quot;miscast&quot; as John Strock, he does his best in a pretty basic hero role that just calls for him to be square-jawed, stoic and punch henchmen. The stoic and square-jawed Bronson is perfect for punching henchmen, so I&#39;m unsure what Matheson is talking about. His cool, quiet demeanor acts as a nice counterbalance to Price&#39;s more animated, over the top (but still enjoyable) performance.<br/><br/>Mary Webster&#39;s Dorothy is little more than someone for Bronson and Frankham to fight over and for Hull to act protective toward, but nevertheless, she does have an arc, albeit a pretty standard one, wherein she finds the guts to stand up to wimpy heel Frankham&#39;s Phillip and choose the manlier Strock. This just leaves Henry Hull. Many viewers complain that he overacts in his role as Dorothy&#39;s father, but, frankly, that&#39;s what makes his role so enjoyable. He&#39;s hilarious and provides much better comic relief than Vito Scotti&#39;s horrific performance as the Albatross&#39; resident &quot;French&quot; chef. His dinner table debate with Price as Robur is one of the film&#39;s best scenes.<br/><br/>Add a few steampunk sci-fi elements like a cool giant airship and &quot;futuristic&quot; flintlock pistols (basically just embellished with some added on silver parts) and you&#39;ve got yourself a pretty solid, but not great, movie. The only thing that sinks it is its low budget which necessitates the over reliance on stock footage. Beyond this, I found it just as enjoyable as the earlier Verne epics Disney&#39;s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Fox&#39;s Journey to the Center of the Earth.

All right, so Rodger Corman is not associated with the movie (Even the AMC introduction announces it as one of his many films). Perhaps because it&#39;s an AIP movie everyone confuses it with his (Corman&#39;s) work.<br/><br/>CineBooks gives the best review of this film: `Despite some good special effects, the film is surprisingly bland. Though Bronson is better in this than most of his other films, he still has a hard time expressing more than three or four emotions. Price is a complete disappointment, giving a restrained performance where a more outrageous parody would have been in order&#39;<br/><br/>This was supposed to have been one of the Big Budget movies for AIP. If so, someone pocketed the proceeds. It sure wasn&#39;t spent in production. Like I said before, poor Mr. Witney must want to crawl of the theater when this movie is shown.
