Standish skin dives to rescue a sub in trouble, to a depth of 150 feet. When he returns to the surface, he swims up rapidly. As a professional, expert diver, Standish should know he'd be risking a case of the bends when not decompressing on his way up. See more »

If you are a fan of "diverting natural disaster" films you will enjoy this one.
Enhanced by beautiful underwater cinematography complements of Clifford Pollard Lloyd Bridges gave a spectacular performance recapturing my fond memories of "Sea Hunt". I seem to be giving this film the only positive comments however, I really did enjoy the adventure, suspense, and even the somewhat "campy" personal interaction between the characters. Also, excellent performances by David McCallum and Brian Kelly whom I remember very fondly from "Man from Uncle" and "Flipper". I found the plot as plausible as other "diverting natural disaster" type films both present and past. As the film begins, increased seismic activity throughout the world is threatening to produce more frequent and stronger earthquakes. Lloyd Bridges and his well trained crew scientists and experts in their own fields borrow a submarine from the military to place sensors in the ocean for early worldwide earthquake detection. Going along for the ride with the 4 men and 1 woman crew were 2 scientific experimental guinea pigs. Disaster threatens the mission a couple of times when a giant sea inhabitant becomes entangled in the sub after trying to eat one of the crew. Also, an underwater volcano erupts burying half of the sub in molten lava. However, quick thinking and fast action from our heroes bring a happy ending to the story. If you are a fan of "diverting natural disaster" films you will enjoy this one however you need to catch it on TV because there is no DVD available and VHS is very limited.
