Narrator: The story you are about to see is true. Only the names of the persons and places have been changed. Well, that and most of what really happened. You see, millions of years ago, the aquatic city of Atlantis sank to the Earth's floor without a trace. In the years that have followed, many of Earth's most brilliant minds have combed the ocean floor in search of the long-lost city... and the possibility of any survivors. No one is really sure exactly what happened to Atlantis, but one ...

Worse than 'so bad it's good.' So bad it's terrible.
18 July 2001 | by (Lovely New Jersey) – See all my reviews

In some cases, there are movies that are so bad that they are good. This is not one of them. I regret having spent time in the same room with the videocasette I saw it on, and even though I got it for free, I feel immeasurably poorer for having seen it. The case over-reported the duration of the movie by 15 minutes and both myself and my unfortunate friend were thankful when it ended early. The only reason we kept watching was a numbing deadness of the brain and a self-destructive urge to see how it could get worse. I saw it almost a decade ago and though many of the details have been mercifully forgotten, it still ranks in my mind as the single worst film I have ever witnessed.

The few details I can recall involve a negligible budget and poor acting -- both of which could have been salvaged as 'camp' a la Ed Wood's works. Unfortunately, the producers had no clear vision -- a fact which they appear to have recognized most of the way through the film, but did not allow to deter their releasing this abomination.
