In the opening of the movie, the drilling rig is shown being destroyed in the Atlantic Ocean yet Dr. Talty later says it was destroyed off the Texas coast. Unless the Texas border has vastly expanded in the time setting of the movie, Texas has no Atlantic Ocean coast. See more »
I saw this movie in the early 1970s and it was a great matinee entertainer. Lots of action, thrills and spills. Neat sets (for the time) and a strong lead (Stuart Whitman) with good supporting characters. Remember that this is essentially a bit of low-budget escapism, don't expect too much and you'll enjoy the ride. Great, harmless way to get youngsters interested in sci-fi - and a marvellous excuse for Dad's especially to relive their growing years as they watch along!
