Goofs

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 »

Great Movie. It should be released on DVD
16 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

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.
