Similar to a "Voyage" episode from 1964
8 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this years ago on network TV, I knew the story seemed familiar, but I couldn't remember where I saw it. Then "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" was released on DVD and it came to me: there was an episode where a 'sister' submarine was destroyed and the Seaview was sent to investigate. Along the way the Admiral (Richard Basehart) becomes an unstable paranoid -- much like David Soul in "Fifth Missile". I forgot the specifics, but as with this movie the plot device of 'something in the air' is used to create a tense situation on the submarine.

Good performances from a solid cast of pros makes this an interesting TV movie. Had there been a larger budget this could have made an excellent theatrical film. Some obviously poor special effects and a dull soundtrack are overlooked because the plot's tension keeps things moving.

This film is ripe for DVD distribution.
