Bland and unremarkable.
21 December 2004 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie only to make my Toho movie collection more complete. A very different Toho film, where we have actors Joseph Cotton and Akira Takarada as the leads, journeying into another world and another dimension below the sea, where everybody seemed to be living in peace. But, the peace is threaten by a mad scientist, played by Cesar Romero. Monsters appear in this film, in the form of gigantic rats and lions.

This movie is somewhat dull and not as exciting as earlier Toho sci-fi movies of the 60s. The monster scenes and human characters were dull. To the casual sci-fi viewer, this movie would probably be a good viewing pleasure. But to the faithful Toho sci-fi fans, this movie does not quite cut it. It does have some action in it, but it is just a far departure from the usual Toho.

Grade D
