Thor and Elle follow Stella and Akton's "friction trail" through space.



* SpecialEffectFailure: Like ''StarWars'', the first minute or so of the film consists of shots of a giant spaceship. Unlike ''StarWars'', the spaceship looks like it's made of Lego (you can actually see they used model-car runners pasted *intact* on the ship sides) and space looks like it's full of Christmas lights. Later, during the space battles, you can see the strings the ships are moving on (and don't worry if you miss them the first time: the scenes are reused). Also, halting the flow of time (for three minutes) is accomplished by bathing things in green jello.
* WhatAnIdiot: Zarth Arn's masterful plan to stop the heroes from destroying his ultimate weapon is [[spoiler:to lure them onto said weapon and then blow it up. To be fair he thought he could use it to blow up the Emperor too, but it's still pretty dumb.]]
** {{Subverted}} in that he would've succeeded in killing all of them, if the Emperor's ship didn't have the ability to ''[[AssPull stop time.]]''

* CriticalResearchFailure: Thor and L follow Stella and Akton's "friction trail" through space.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: L the robot. He's a super-competent badass who saves the day several times, and has a likeable personality and a fun (if completely out of place) Texas accent.

to:

** Elle the robot turning up whole and unharmed after being smashed to pieces by cavemen. Putting a robot back together isn't normally an asspull, but it is when his pieces were left behind on an exploding planet, and the only way the other characters escaped was by breaking time.
* CriticalResearchFailure: Thor and L Elle follow Stella and Akton's "friction trail" through space.
** The soldier torpedoes, which work by crashing through the windows of the Count's space station so a couple of soldiers can hop out. This has no effect on the atmosphere inside the space station.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: L Elle the robot. He's a super-competent badass who saves the day several times, and has a likeable personality and a fun (if completely out of place) Texas accent.

* {{Padding}}: The loooong, sloooow shots of spaceships flying through space. Especially during the climax, which consists of many more loooong, sloooow shots of spaceships launching from the Emperor's Space City, which is even more ludicrous considering how quickly they get their butts kicked.

* HamAndCheese: Christopher Plummer is deliciously hammy. He proudly said he only did the film for the chance to vacation in Rome, even noting that he'd do porn if a trip to Rome was involved.

** Really, just...''everything''about Akton and his "abilities."

** Really, just...''everything''about ''everything'' about Akton and his "abilities."" The movie kills him off because he would solve the big climax in seconds.
