    TDTESS is a simplistic movie cast in simpler times when the tensions between the two superpowers were quite high. I holds your attention with the promise of some future event
    and little else. The action is slow, the relationship between Mr. Carpenter and Bobby would, these days, be MOST suspicious to any American parent if not the police. It creeps along with most scenes overly dark and with stullified dialog and with an overall innocence that is charming to watch. I particularly liked the ease at which the robot destroys the armaments of those troops surrounding the ship after Mr. Carpenter is wounded, a good idea.
