Crash Corrigan, a recent graduate of Annapolis, and Diana, a go-getting reporter, join Professor Norton for a search for the source of a string of earthquakes, Atlantis. They ride Prof. Norton's rocket submarine searching the sea and little Billy Norton, the professor's son stows away, of course. When they find Atlantis they are caught in a war between peaceful Atlanteans, note their white capes, and war-monging Atlanteans, note their black capes. After many harrowing moments for Crash, Diana, Prof. Norton and Billy, they barely get away with their lives when they escape a tower of Atlantis raised to the surface for the sole purpose of dominating or destroying the Earth (Which one depends on the compliance of the upper world dwellers.)Written by

Enjoy All Of The Gung-Ho Heroics Where The White Capes Vs. The Black Capes
Without a doubt, a big part of the reason why I gave "Undersea Kingdom" (from 1936) its 6-star rating has to do with the absolutely hilarious-looking robots who made regular appearances throughout this cheesy, vintage production.
Yeah. These robots (IMO) were an absolute riot. And without their unintentionally comical presence, I probably wouldn't have given this decidedly silly production more than just 4 stars, at best, as its rating.
Anyway - I'd say that (for the most part) "Undersea Kingdom" was (generally speaking) OK as far as low-budget entertainment goes. I found that it had both its fair share of good moments, as well as its not-so-good moments, too.
But, with that all said - Yes. It was a pretty goofy production (in the long run).
