Movie Summary
An ambitious sci-fier from the Disney folks, The Black Hole takes place in The Future. A quintet of space travellers stumble across a black hole. Not wishing to be sucked into the void, the crew prepares to flee, but stops long enough to investigate a mysterious space vessel near the entrance of the hole. Manning this craft is mad scientist Maximillian Schell, who intends to explore the black hole in hopes of finding the Universes energy source. From this point on, the plot is inessential, as we bask in the glory of Peter Ellenshaws dazzling special effects. The films only drawback is the two-dimensionality of the characters played by Anthony Perkins, Robert Forster, Yvette Mimieux et al. The Black Hole raised a few eyebrows in 1979 as being one of Disneys first PG-rated films. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
