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

6The Last Starfighter

High noon plus space doesn't equal bad movie

8They Live

RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper...may chew bubblegum and kick ass in heaven.

Another underrated Carpenter classic. - Myka

9I, 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


The Newcomers

?Real Steel

Sure it has a pretty silly premise: boxing robots. But the film in my opinion is pretty intense. The robot fights were epic and I think this has to be Hugh Jackman's most underrated role. The child actor didn't do so bad either, the two of them had great chemistry. Definitely check this film out.

The Contenders

12Star 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

In my opinion I think episode 3 is more underrated but it not have on the list so I vote for this.I hate jar jar at the first but when people keep hating it I feel like why people hate it so much much and I feel sad about jar jar for being most hate character in the world and now I just ok with it - Thirdwind

13Body Snatchers
14Galaxy Quest
15Flight of the Navigator

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

17A.I. - Artificial Intelligence
