Storyline

A team of scientists working to raise a sunken Russian nuclear submarine on an ocean platform off the coast of Miami, Florida, unearth an ancient Atlantean relic from the sea floor and bring in an expert to make some sense of it. But while attempting to raise the sub, radioactive leakage from its missles triggers the re-emergence of Atlantis, and the resulting tidal wave destroys the platform and leaves only a small group of survivors. Rescued by two Vietnamvets-turned-heavies who are out relaxing after their latest job, their boat eventually runs aground on a Carribean island nearby where, upon going ashore, it is discovered that everything has been destroyed and everybody killed. The culprits, a vicious group of well-armed raiders, and their leader, Crystal Skull, are descendants of Atlantis' original race who set about reclaiming the world and adding the survivors to the list of victims as they struggle to stay alive and defeat the raiders and send Atlantis back to the ocean floor.

Professor Peter Saunders: Five thousand, seven hundred-and-twelve feet down. The spectograph makes it about twelve-thousand-years-old, a lot older than anything you'd ever dig up in Mazzedland! And we've gotten you here to decipher the inscriptions on that tablet!

Frabtacular action saga!
29 July 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

One of best in the post-apoc genre. Doesn't really make much sense, but delivers lots of the goods. Some of you might not know this, but they actually reused sets from ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 for one of the action sequences! Good gore effects, outstanding shootouts, a great cast (best of all Ivan Rassimov), funny cheesy special effects, and even funnier dialog. "Manuel, what the hell are you talking about?" Another in the long line of likable films complete with a Tony King scream-o-rama! Why does this guy scream so much in every film he's in? Look hard and buy this flick! A classic.
