When the Earth is threatened by a burning Van Allen Radiation Belt, U.S. Navy Admiral Harriman Nelson plans to shoot a nuclear missile at the Belt, using his experimental atomic submarine, the Seaview.
During World War I, a German U-boat sinks a British ship and takes the survivors on board. After it takes a wrong turn, the submarine takes them to the unknown land of Caprona, where they find dinosaurs and neanderthals.
A Victorian era scientist and his assistant take a test run in their Iron Mole drilling machine and end up in a strange underground labyrinth ruled by a species of giant telepathic bird and full of prehistoric monsters and cavemen.
A scientist discovers a formula enabling him to pass through solid surfaces but he also rapidly ages which forces him to kill humans in order to reverse the aging process by absorbing his victims' energies.

The government of Brazil, which has jurisdiction over the territory that Challenger and Roxton will explore, would logically be very interested in such an ambitious enterprise that affects Brazil directly. At no moment of the film, however, is the government of Brazil ever mentioned. See more »
Colorful and spectacular adventures film by Irwin Allen
A daring expedition constituted by Professor Challenger(Claude Rains),a scientific(Richard Haydn),an adventurer named Rolston(Michael Wilding),a journalist(David Hedison),an explorer(Fernando Lamas),the magnate's daughter(Jill St John)among others journey to remote location where are roaming prehistoric dinosaurs and savage cannibal tribes still alive.They confront against the nature's most fearsome predators that savagely stalking its prey.
It's an amusing old-fashioned and dated adventure from Arthur Conan Doyle(Sherlock Holmes's author)novel that follows the wake of ¨Journey of the center of the earth¨ by Henry Levin previously filmed,in fact the finale part into the cave is similarly realized ,including a cliff-hungers scenes where the protagonists are dangling over a dangerous cliffs pursued by a cruel natives .An ambitious production values and quite entertaining considering its age.The Jurassik creatures are made by transparency as a giant spider and a lizards increased by optics effects. The story was impressive when first released but it looks pretty silly for standards nowadays. Dinosaurs delivers the goods with chills,grisly screams when the beasts appear,thus the climax film happens when the giant lizards running amok and are fighting among them.The motion picture is regularly directed by Irwin Allen, the catastrophe cinema's creator(Adventure Poseidon,Towering inferno,Swarm).This story was formerly adapted in a silent movie(1925)and with dinosaurs made by the great Willis O'Brien(King Kong).Anothers remakes are filmed in 1993 by Timothy Bond with John Rhys Davies and of course the especial adaptation by Steven Spielberg :The lost world, Jurassik Park. The flick will like to the juvenile public and and adventures movie fans but best enjoyed in big screen
