Best version?My foot!
13 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is eminently debatable! Pabst 's version was perhaps not his best or among his best but it retained a certain pristine charm,some magic,even an unexpected twist.Brigitte Helm, Fritz Lang's Maria in "Metropolis" only appeared about fifteen minutes but she had mystery and hieratic qualities going for her.Haya Harareet -who was a good Esther in "Ben Hur "- portrays a two-bit queen ,who seems to be in one of these cheap Peplums with muscle men whereas the Legionnaires from Pierre Benoit's novel have become civilians ,scientists to be precise .And -the writer would turn in his grave for when he wrote his book,this dreadful weapon (happy times ) did not exist -these men know that Atlantis is part of a no-go area cause an atomic bomb is going to explode any day now.

It was a good idea to "update" a rather old-fashioned book -few people still read Benoit now in France whereas he was a best seller half a century ago and before -Doing so by mixing Peplum with sci-fi does not do the writer any justice.The screenplay is silly,as an user wrote ,and Jean -Louis Trintignant looks stupefied ,as if the story did not concern him.Gian Maria Volonte has a small supporting part of a villain.There are so many plot holes the story is sometimes difficult to catch up with:for instance ,John (Georges Rivière) disappears very early ,probably because he was looking forward to collecting his fee and leaving this incredibly stupid tale .
