Most Underrated Sci-fi Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Arrival
2 Robocop 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

3 Demolition 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

4 The Last Starfighter
5 Ultraviolet

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

6 Outland

High noon plus space doesn't equal bad movie

7 They Live

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

Another underrated Carpenter classic. - Myka

8 I, 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

9 Body Snatchers
10 Sphere

The Contenders

11 Star 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

12 Alien 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

This was the second best alien series! what a shame!

13 A.I. - Artificial Intelligence

All robots
I love futuristic cities at night time I want to go - SpencerJC

14 2010: The Year We Make Contact

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

15 Flight of the Navigator

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

16 Galaxy Quest
17 Armageddon
18 Futuresport
19 Serenity

Excellent series spawned an even greater movie.
