It started well. The scenes of them encountering the apparently derelict ship at the beginning, and then discovering that it is still operational were good. But the scientific inaccuracies mount and the film becomes ridiculous by the end.
The John Barry musical score is excellent however.
It's been so many years since I have watched this one. I seem to remember liking it as a kid, but I couldn't tell you much about it, now. I really should find a copy and re-watch it, just for nostalgia's sake.
Directed by Gary Nelson. With Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins, Robert Forster, Joseph Bottoms. A research vessel finds a missing ship, commanded by a mysterious scientist, on the edge of a black hole.
