In the 21st-century, a former underwater scientific installation has been repurposed as a city, known as Pacifica to the colonists who inhabit it. Now the U. S. government has plans to store the Ft. Knox gold reserves there, along with a fantastic new radioactive element. But, someone has plans of stealing the gold, and to make matters worse;, the city faces imminent destruction by an asteroid heading towards it. Written by
In the fight scene between Adm. Matthews and Brett in the vault, Brett is thrown against a pile of gold bars, but the entire pile can be seen to start tipping over. Solid gold bars would be too heavy to be pushed over this way. Also, the pile tips without any individual blocks moving out of place, revealing this to be a prop wall, probably made of wood. All the other piles did not topple when pushed against. See more »
Opening credits prologue: JUNE 12, 2053 THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
Unfortunately City Beneath The Sea has not been aired as far as I know for several years. I scan listings regularly for it. Effects as I recall were way ahead of its time. Plot was terrific and acting was great. The original version is ripe for showing on TV again as well as a DVD release. And with re-makes being all the rage lately, this would be a good one to remake as well. This movie was listed in one of Blockbuster's annual movie guides, indicating that it was due for release, but it never happened. If it is ever aired again, don't miss it! If it is ever released on DVD, buy it! You will not be disappointed.
