I don\'t know what people have against this movie. Okay, so some of the special effects aren\'t great, but to be honest I prefer films like this which have interesting plots, solid characters and imaginative scenery to the kind of effects-dependent trash Hollywood is currently churning out without care or interest.
The story involves scientists intending to explore under the ocean with the use of a diving-bell. However, after they find a gold statue they, together with most of the crew of their ship, are abducted by a giant octopus and taken to the lost undersea world of Atlantis.
This is a classic and highly entertaining film with good performances from the cast and atmospheric settings with appropriately haunting music.
What a great film! When ever I watch this movie, I sit with a big grin on my face. This was one of the first movies I saw at the cinema as a kid. This film didn\'t win any Oscars, but if there had been a category for FUN it would have won hands down. I don\'t thing this film was ever meant to be taken too seriously. Like many of Doug McClures movies, \"At The Earths Core\" and \"The land that time forgot\", made with a hint of tongue in cheek. Made before the onset of cgi effects, this film has an innocent, non-cynical feel. It has Monsters, the lost city of atlantis, guns, fight scenes and more monsters, what more can you ask for in a low budget sci-fi. Films like this are often belittled by people who cannot see beyond their De Niro\'s and Oscar nominations. The quality of a film, at the end of the day, is about it\'s entertainment value, hence 10 out of 10.
If you are a fan of rubber suits and puppets as oppose to the modern day CGI you are in for a treat as this film deliveries many different beasties made of the Godzilla style persuasion. After saying that if you are not one to be into that kind of effects then you will not really like what this movie has in store for you. For me I liked them and thought it added a certain charm that you cannot get with a movie made nowadays.
The story is basic and there is really nothing here that is awe inspiring or revolutionary but as far as a PG rated adventure goes (the first I\'ve actually entered a review on I believe) this one is a nice little ride. If you have little ones they will more than likely be entertained by all the monsters and more than likely your inner child will enjoy them as well.
No gore here, nothing horrific just a nice little escape along the lines of a descent Fantasy or Sci-Fi film. People looking for anything else than a 70\'s style low budget adventure film need not apply all others I would encourage you to give it a look. My score for \"Warlords of Atlantis\" is: 5/10: Average, a nice little escape nothing huge here, just a nice change of pace film to show off to the kids that will not make you want to rip out your eyes.
This movie has not yet received a Stateside release however for a little \"pound\" you can get this one from England, courtesy of the DVD company Cinema Club. It is a 16:9 Animorphic transfer with an English Mono only audio.
