  • How can you go wrong with Lionel Barrymore?

    I never read the book, but I've read enough Jules Verne to know his plots are airtight. This one had more holes than a swiss cheese, so I assume the moviemakers were taking liberties with the Verne story. The combo of silent & sound effects - with the 2 or 3 sound sequences tghrown in - was frankly bizarre. But for all that it was a lot of fun. Lionel Barrymore is just the greatest - we had already seen him in Grand Hotel and Camille when this one came on.

  • Stunning Sci-Fi Classic

    A movie that blows you away at every turn. If you're a Lionel Barrymore fan like me and want to see him as a vigorous leading man in an adventure movie, this is it. The submarine scenes are forerunners of every outer space movie in the 50s. It feels like Forbidden Planet at times. The undersea battle climax is mindblowing for its time. Between this and Metropolis, it seems like all sci-fi was actually invented in the 1920s. Use of sound is very limited (like The Jazz Singer) and only used in a couple scenes, most notably with the undersea radio communications.
