Slightly surreal but entertaining in a strange way, 10 February 2015
Author: yeltzmanmatt from Birmingham, England

Raiders from beneath the Sea is a low budget crime movie from the 1960's. Four men plan to rob a bank and then escape via scuba diving.

It's an easy to follow plot and although the actors aren't great I found their performances strangely fascinating. There was a good chemistry between Ken Scott and Merry Anders as well as over a foot difference in height!.

It all gets strangely surreal towards the end and it must feature the first and only bank robbery with full scuba gear.

This is not a great film by any means but it is something different and kept me watching for it's full duration. I loved the ending.

Although I appear to be in a small minority, I really enjoyed it.
