Storyline

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.)

I liked it.
7 July 2003 | by billsue5See all my reviews

Granted it is not like our cliff hangers today but enjoyed watching it. It had no foul language or off color jokes. It is a good family friendly series. It keeps the attention of the viewer. I like older movies anyway(there cleaner than the filth that HELLYWOODS putting out today).
