A space salvage expert and his partner become involved with a group of criminals intent on hijacking a small asteroid made of sapphire and crashing it into the moon for later recovery. The only place that they can bring the asteroid down without drawing attention to themselves is a far side mining claim. But first they must dispose of the miner. Little known to them, however, is the fact that the miners sister has hired the same salvage team to help her locate her missing brother.Written by

Keep an eye on the women's fashion on the Moon- although somewhat influenced by then-current couturiers, very similar fashions - and colored wigs - will appear in Gerry Anderson's live-action series "UFO" shot contemporaneously, and Moon Zero Two lead Catherine Schell will be wearing an outfit very similar to that of Kemp in this film when she stars in the second series of Gerry Anderson's "Space:1999" as the alien shapeshifter Maya.

I saw this movie once on TV years ago, and loved it. It has a good cast with sci-fi credentials like James Olson from the Andromeda Strain and Catherine Schell from Space:1999. It had a great over the top 1960's pop score. It was one of the first movies I saw that tried to turn space into a western except with women in miniskirts and everything in bright euro 60's colors. Olson plays a down and out astronaut who once was famous for commanding the first mission to mars. He and his Russian partner run a charter space ship business on the moon. Their space ship, moon zero two, is old and barely up to code. But Olson is an old hand on the moon. He accepts two jobs that turn out to be related. A beautiful woman from Earth wants him to find her brother who is missing from his mining claim. Second a rich bad guy with a plan to crash an asteroid into the moon. This movie more then anything else was fun with a great deal of style.
