Fantastic adventures full of monsters in lost continent of Atlantis
Searching for treasures, a scientific, his son (Peter Gilmore) and Greg Collinson (Doug McClure) are double-crossed by their crew (John Ratzenberger: Cheers, among others).When they're into a diving bell are attacked by a sea monster and the sailors are dragged by a giant octopus. The ship-wrecked crew find inhabitants of the lost world of Atlantis, the lost continent written by Platon. It's ruled by an alien race(Michael Gothard,Daniel Massey and Cyd Charisse) from Mars which wish to rule the human beings and the creation a totalitarian state.
This fantasy picture packs thrills, action, weird monsters, lively pace and fantastic scenarios. The monsters are the real stars of this production and its chief attribute. The tale is silly and laughable but the effects and action are quite well. Among the most spectacular of its visuals there are a deeply shrouded caverns full of monsters roaring menacingly towards the camera, the attack of a giant lizard on a fortress, and the futuristic backgrounds of Atlantis . Some illogical parts in the argument are more than compensated for the excitement provided by Roger Dicken's monsters, though sometimes are a little bit cheesy. Filmed in glimmer cinematography by Alan Hume on location in Malta and in Pinewood studios , England. Colorful and stirring musical score by Vickers. This is the fourth collaboration between producer John Dark and director Kevin Connor who also made in similar style : ¨The land that time forgot(1975)¨, ¨All the Earth's core(76)¨, ¨The people that time forgot(77)¨mostly starred by Doug McClure and with Dicken as the monster-maker. The film will appeal to kids who swallow whole and sit convulsed in their armchair.
