The U.S. government has been using deep caves in Central America as bases for a special type of radio transmitter used for communicating with submaries. When the signal from one of these transmitters suddenly disappears, a team of soldiers and cave specialists is sent in to find out what happened. After some exploring deep underground, they stumble upon a tribe of albino cave dwellers who have been isolated from the rest of the world for thousands of years.

THOUGHT PROVOKING
27 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have never really given much thought to underground civilizations and the like, but this movie definitely gets you thinking!

It's a bit slow to getting off the ground, but stick with it, it's well worth the wait!

I didn't think the movie would be so good from the beginning, in fact to be honest, there's quite a poor start to it, and I suspect many would switch off before it gets going. I remained open-minded. I think that the idea was very imaginative indeed, and my only complaint was the movie was over too quickly. Would have made a two and half hour movie, no problem. Still, the idea of any great movie, like any great book, is to leave you wanting more.

However, it had a very satisfactory end.

Don't miss this if you get the opportunity - a gem worth watching.
