I have to say its still held up in a haunting way. I undestand that TBH had its detractors who said it was a Star Wars knock-off or a watered-down 2001: A Space Odyssey. I think it's uniquely its own film. By far, the most thoughtful review I've found is here. John K. Muir likens it to a "Childhood Heart of Darkness" with many allusions to Jules Vernes' stories. The pre-CGI effects were phenomenal, as well. The aspects that don't hold up as well were the scoring which had these optimistic orchestral themes that played during dramatic shoot-outs between the crew and robots, leaving little doubt about which side would triumph. Regardless, it's a fascinating, brooding, dark movie that I'm glad I didn't see as a three-year-old.
