A scientist is nearly assassinated. In order to save him, a submarine is shrunken to microscopic size and injected into his blood stream with a small crew. Problems arise almost as soon as they enter the bloodstream.
Scientist Jan Benes, who knows the secret to keeping soldiers shrunken for an indefinite period, escapes from behind the Iron Curtain with the help of CIA agent Grant. While being transferred, their motorcade is attacked. Benes strikes his head, causing a blood clot to form in his brain. Grant is ordered to accompany a group of scientists as they are miniaturized. The crew has one hour to get in Benes's brain, remove the clot and get out. Written by

The jetliner seen in the opening of the film, a TWA 707 registration N746TW, had a long life and carried passengers from 1962 to 1982. It was then mothballed at the Davis-Moncton storage facility and cannibalized for repair parts for the US Air Force fleet of KC-135 tankers. It was eventually scrapped. See more »

[as the submarine enters the brain]
Yet all the suns that light the corridors of the universe shine dim before the blazing of a single thought...
proclaiming in incandescent glory the myriad mind of Man...
Very poetic, gentlemen. Let me know when we pass the soul.
The soul? The finite mind cannot comprehend infinity - and the soul, which comes from God, is infinite.
Yes, well, our time isn't.

This is not only a great science fiction film, it is also a great thriller as well. I especially loved the fact that this was supposedly done in "real time" and that the characters and that it was not only a mission to save the scientist life, but a race against time before the miniaturization wore off. Also, even though the effects are dated, they still were pretty good for the era they were produced in.
