Movie Info

Typical 1970's lightweight pseudo-science-fictional fare, this movie was the pilot for a very brief action series. Modern-day US Navy scientists discover the legendary Nemo (an apparently underemployed Jose Ferrer) in suspended animation aboard his Nautilus at the bottom of the ocean. He is revived in time to champion the surface world in a vengeful war waged by the King of Atlantis (an apparently shameless Horst Bucholz). The 1930's-style kiddie matinee plot was further hampered by bad science (diving to great depths without pressurization, laser gun battles underwater) and lack of needed period detail (The Nautilus' interior looked like something from Star Trek, full of whirring computers and flashing colored lights, not at all like a Victorian era creation). Fun for the kids, but adults must check their intellects at the door.

All Critics (1) least his robot butler was cool... at least cool for 1978.
