(Muerto 4-3-2-1-0/Orbita Mortal)
Co-written by one of the authors of the book series, the film version is reasonably faithful to the basic Perry Rhodan characters the story is set at the start of the series rather than the more interesting period after Rhodans formation of the Solar Empire and the ensuing intergalactic adventures. (It is the alien technology from Arkon that is first introduced here that allows Rhodan and associates to begin their intergalactic adventures).
Mission Stardust is not a particularly good film it is incredibly drab in terms of direction, photography and acting. Heroes Lang Jeffries and Luis Davilla are like blocks of wood uttering nobly resolute epithets. The action and substandard effects hardly work up any excitement. The film has a juvenile chauvinism to it that the principals play with an embarassed deadpan upon meeting a beautiful doctor, Luis Davilla comes out with lines like Doctor, what disease would put me in the hospital under your care? and the end has the alien woman succumb to Rhodans charms. After a time, the film attains a colourful amusement, while the models, sets and costumes all have a juvenile innocence.
