When Kowski begins making his demand that he and some of the crew may leave the Seaview, Alvarez is standing a few feet behind Captain Crane, however in the next shot he is beside him. See more »
Alvarez... are you saying that Man must accept destruction even though it's in his power to prevent it?
It's not for us to judge, Admiral.
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?

I had ordered Voyage to The Bottom of The Sea on DVD and at 3:00 in the morning I found myself watching it. Okay, the idea of the Van Allen radiation belt catching on fire is silly, but it's just the premise for a really good sci-fi adventure film that I wish I could've seen in the theaters on a wide screen. But the rich colors on the DVD and Dolby sound is a good substitute for the real thing.
In looking at it, I can't help but compare the movie with the series that followed as there are some of the actors from the movie who ended up in the show. Seeing this Lee Crane constantly arguing and second-guessing Admiral Nelson is a little disturbing, yet the movie inspired one of the best sci-fi series of the '60s. And the movie itself, like Fantastic Voyage, shows great creativity. Irwin Allen is always being underestimated by people with 60 second attention spans, but this movie shows how much of a creative artist that Allen was.
I gladly give this movie 8/10
