Quotes

Dr. Doug Standish: Yeah, he's done some very impressive research in marine biology. M.E. Hanford from England. Well I'm sure you've read for some of his published material in the last couple of years.
Dr. August 'Gus' Boren: *Her* material.
Dr. Doug Standish: What?
Dr. August 'Gus' Boren: The "M.E." stands for "Margaret Elizabeth." Very attractive, too. As a matter of fact, she just finished doing some research for me.
Dr. Craig Mosby: Well, shall we make it Johnson?
Dr. Doug Standish: Why, because Hanford's a woman? Half the doctors in Russia are women. Not a bad example for us to follow.
Dr. August 'Gus' Boren: He's got a point.
Dr. Craig Mosby: You ...

Dull, dull, dull!!!!
17 October 2005 | by bayster912See all my reviews

I have seen this film only once - it was part of a holiday double bill with (I think, Captain Sinbad which starred Guy Madison). I must have been eleven at the time, and remember that my mother had agreed to take my younger brother and myself to see it at the ABC Haymarket cinema in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (happy days), on the strength of having seen the trailer, which made it look good. I remember to this day how I looked forward all week to seeing it, and how disappointed I was when I actually saw it. Seldom have I seen a film to compare, in terms of promising a lot and delivering nothing. Nothing happened of any consequence, until a scene between Lloyd Bridges and David McCallum - I recall the dialogue, something like 'where there are smaller fish there will be bigger fish' (sounds pretty innocuous now, I'm sure there must have been more menace in it than that). It must been pretty poor for me not to like an adventure film at the age of 11! And of course my poor Mum yawned her way through it too. She must have regarded it as a huge waste of money.
