Most Underrated Sci-fi Movies


The Top TenXW

1The Arrival
2Robocop 2

It had some holes but I still love this sequel - Alexandr

It wasn't Robocop 1, but it sure wasn't Robocop 3. - BKAllmighty


I really loved visual effects, fight scenes and Milla's outfit. She was sexy - Alexandr

4Demolition Man

Out of all the cheesy Sylvester Stallone movies, this one is, by far, the most entertaining. Wesley Snipes is perfect in his role. - BKAllmighty

5Alien 3

If you get over the deaths of hicks newt and bishop there is plenty of good moments also this was David finchers first film


High noon plus space doesn't equal bad movie

7The Last Starfighter
8I, Robot

The special effects, at the very least, are award-worthy. The movie came out over ten years ago and yet the effects are still top notch. It's one exciting movie too, of course. - BKAllmighty

10They Live

Another underrated Carpenter classic. - Myka

The Contenders

11Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

I'm glad this one is here and not episodes II and III. I just can't stand Hayden Christensen's Anakin. I'll take Jar Jar Binks any day. - BKAllmighty

Agreed at least this film had some practical effects and some really good moments plus it has a very underrated score

13Galaxy Quest
14Body Snatchers
15Flight of the Navigator

The best movie Disney ever made. By a long shot. - RockFashionista

17A.I. - Artificial Intelligence
182010: The Year We Make Contact

People don't appriviate this film just for being a sequel


Excellent series spawned an even greater movie.
