A world unlike any you've ever known! Matt Spencer, a workaholic attorney and single father, is struggling to raise his three rebellious teenagers in the wake of his wife walking out on him. Chris Spencer, Matt's eldest son, is a handsome, over-achieving, straight-laced 18-year-old who is angry with his father about the divorce, even though his mother is the one who left. Daughter Claudia is a typical 16-year-old mall rat with too much time on her hands and the good looks that usually spell trouble. Youngest son Adam is a hip 13-year-old with a big mouth and a smart-alec attitude to go along with it. In an attempt to bring his family together again, Matt charters a sailboat for a 10-day surprise cruise to the Bahamas. The kids, selfishly un-excited about the trip, try to talk their father out of it, but he is steadfast in his determination to spend some quality family time together. Upon landing in Florida, the Spencers arrive at the dock to board the Wind Dancer, a beautiful 90-foot ... Written by Brendan Hill

Better than it looks!
6 January 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Escape from Atlantis is a action packed movie with great story and Wonderful actors (mostly Mercedes McNab)! You really need to see it twice to really get into it!

The actors are fine. McNab is the whole movie along with Roper, Bloom,Speakmen, but Wilson is awful!

The movie is really good. The Action rocks and the blood and gore is not out of place! Pretty cool Computor effects and has a good plot and great screenplay!

See this movie!!! 8/10
