Goofs

During the effort to tap the underwater telephone cable, a crewman twice flashes a large flashlight to signal the sub. In the close-ups, the light as shown is very dim, barely lighting the bulb's filament and throwing no beam. But in the distance shots, it's casting a thick, highly visible beam. See more »

Quotes

Admiral Nelson: Alvarez... are you saying that Man must accept destruction even though it's in his power to prevent it?
Alvarez: It's not for us to judge, Admiral.
Admiral Nelson: Not to judge, maybe; but we can reason. If God ordains that Man should die without a fight, then why does He give us the will to live?

30 November 2005 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Now this is sci fi, I like to see. An underwater adventure, involving a powerful nuclear submarine that moves like the great blue whale. Only a different color. I first saw the lunch box when I was in New York, and there was the title, the sub, and the menacing red octopus attacking a mini-sub. The cast of the movie were perfect. I would later remember that Barbara Eden("I Dream of Jeanine") and Michael Ansara(The Blue Djinn) have their memorable roles 4 years later on TV. She really puts on a show in the break room when the Lt. plays his trumpet down hard! The scenes are amazing, and I think that octopus is really a minor threat in the movie. He looks too uncooperative. The special effects are good, and the backgrounds, are OK. This movie is one of the best in scifi. I wouldn't disagree with anyone about it! Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
