In "Saturn 3," a 1980 science fiction film, Farrah Fawcett and Kirk Douglas star as Alex and Adam, two scientists living alone on a remote Saturn moon base. The two have been working together for three years, as part of a project to develop new crops able to sustain life on Earth. However, their monotonous routine is drastically interrupted when Captain James (Harvey Keitel) arrives on the base, bringing with him an unusual robot named Hector.

As the only other person they have seen or interacted with in years, Alex and Adam are intrigued by James' presence, especially Alex, who seems drawn to the Captain's charm and good looks. Things turn dangerous when James takes a liking to Hector and envisions using the robot as a military weapon, something that Alex and Adam had not anticipated when they were given the task of testing the prototype for its intended purpose.

James' obsession with the robot leads him to take drastic and unethical steps, putting everyone on the base in grave danger. The film explores themes of power, greed, and the consequences that come with playing god. The unsettling atmosphere of the isolated base and the intense character dynamics create a sense of tension and unease, as we see how obsession can drive people to make irrational and dangerous decisions.

Farrah Fawcett delivers a standout performance as Alex, the female lead in a male-dominated environment. She manages to hold her own against both Kirk Douglas and Harvey Keitel, showcasing her acting range in scenes that require both vulnerability and strength. Douglas also brings gravitas to the role of Adam, a seasoned scientist who is protective of his work and those he cares for.

Despite its flaws, "Saturn 3" is a cult classic that has garnered a dedicated fan base over the years. The film's creative use of practical effects and soundtrack by legendary composer Elmer Bernstein add to its unique charm. The film has also been a source of inspiration for contemporary science fiction movies like "Moon" and "Ex Machina."

While "Saturn 3" may not have achieved critical success upon its initial release, it remains an interesting piece of sci-fi cinema that blends classic themes with a futuristic setting. The dynamic between the three characters and the tension that builds throughout the film make for an entertaining viewing experience.

Saturn 3 is a 1980 science fiction movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.1 and a MetaScore of 9.
