A team of scientists working to raise a sunken Russian nuclear submarine on an ocean platform off the coast of Miami, Florida, unearth an ancient Atlantean relic from the sea floor and bring in an expert to make some sense of it. But while attempting to raise the sub, radioactive leakage from its missles triggers the re-emergence of Atlantis, and the resulting tidal wave destroys the platform and leaves only a small group of survivors. Rescued by two Vietnamvets-turned-heavies who are out relaxing after their latest job, their boat eventually runs aground on a Carribean island nearby where, upon going ashore, it is discovered that everything has been destroyed and everybody killed. The culprits, a vicious group of well-armed raiders, and their leader, Crystal Skull, are descendants of Atlantis' original race who set about reclaiming the world and adding the survivors to the list of victims as they struggle to stay alive and defeat the raiders and send Atlantis back to the ocean floor.Written by

Helicopters used are: landing at the platform is a Sikorsky Sea King HS-2. The bus chase helicopter appears to be a Fairchild-Hiller FH1100 and the final helicopter is a Bell UH-1 Huey. See more »
The CAM Transit bus drives noticeably slower when stuntmen are jumping onto the roof than at other times during the helicopter chase. See more »
If you ask me, we're just heading around in circles.
What's wrong with circles?
Well, since I don't have old Allah watching over my sweet ass, I'd feel a lot better if I knew we were heading for dry land, you know.
Oh, your damn thoughts don't go north of your neck anyhow!

The German version (released under the title "Atlantis Inferno") is missing the entire opening credits sequence, and starts directly at the first scene with the kidnapping. Before the movie is a blue screen with the title, and credits for Ruggerro Deodato, Christopher Connelly (I), Tony King, Ivan Rassimov and Mike Miller. No one else from the opening credits sequence is credited anywhere in the movie. The end credits are also taken straight from the original Italian version, and are still in Italian. Also, several cuts are made to the more gory sequences, including the deaths of Frank, Liza and Barbara, and the decapitation of the motorcycle raiders. All of the other death scenes remain intact. There are also many dialog changes, with extra lines added (in German) in numerous scenes. The echoing screams of the raiders when they are killed have also entirely been replaced with normal, non-echoing cries from German voice-over artists. Additionally, during the platform sequences, an echo has been added to lines of dialog spoken by characters into microphones, which is not present in any other version worldwide. See more »
One of best in the post-apoc genre. Doesn't really make much sense, but delivers lots of the goods. Some of you might not know this, but they actually reused sets from ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 for one of the action sequences! Good gore effects, outstanding shootouts, a great cast (best of all Ivan Rassimov), funny cheesy special effects, and even funnier dialog. "Manuel, what the hell are you talking about?" Another in the long line of likable films complete with a Tony King scream-o-rama! Why does this guy scream so much in every film he's in? Look hard and buy this flick! A classic.
