The submarine is a take on the supersub Seaview from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964). See more »

Goofs

Dr. Standish free dives to 150 ft to rescue the mini-submersible after the collision with the whale disables it. When the SCUBA rescue team arrives, Standish takes 2-3 breaths from the divers regulator and immediately heads to the surface outpacing his exhaled air. If Standish had not taken the breaths from compressed air at depth, this would be no problem as the air would have returned to normal sea level volume, but since he did breathe compressed air at 150 ft. (appx 5 ATM) that air would have expanded to 5 times the volume at the surface. Failure to exhale while surfacing causes the diver to suffer an over pressure of the lungs/thorax resulting in a blowout (pneumothorax) and not the bends which is not a factor at this depth and time on bottom.

Have you got the answer to Hydronaut's question?
5 November 2015 | by hitchcockthelegendSee all my reviews

A forgotten aquatic based sci-fier from an era that loved them, Andrew Marton's film isn't extremely bad exactly, it's just that it plods along without ever really reaching exciting heights.

Cast features Lloyd Bridges, Brian Kelly, Shirley Eaton, David McCallum and Keenan Wynn, who are tasked with traversing the world's ocean beds to plant sensors that will warn mankind of impending earthquakes. A tricky task for sure, especially after we have been told at the start that the depths of the ocean is more inhospitable than anything in space.

The science is of course nutty, as is the effects and photography work on show. Much of the film is taken up with talk, be it sci-fi boffins or heroes in waiting, or a burgeoning romance (Eaton locked in a submarine with a load of men, what a shock!), the chatter promises more than the film ultimately delivers. The expected perils arrive, a couple of beasties of the sea, some submarine damage threatens to scupper our heroes, which asks us to hold on to see how it will pan out. Thus who will survive etc? The end of the world core of the story, the earthquake science et al, is interesting to a cerebral degree, but it plays out like a screenplay that Irwin Allen read and threw in the trash can because it wasn't exciting enough. 5/10
