When their sailing ship founders at sea, several of the passengers are rescued and find themselves aboard a submarine in the command of Captain Nemo. They are amazed to find that Nemo has built a vast underwater city. Men, women and children all live in harmony in Nemo's idyllic paradise that is free of war and lives off the riches that they've found at the bottom of sea. The new arrivals are distressed to learn however that as they've now seen the city, they cannot leave and must live there for the rest of their days. That doesn't sit well with many of the new arrivals some of whom set about to find a way to leave at whatever cost.—garykmcd

Short Review

I probably would have loved this film when I was 6...which I was in 1970. However, I didn't see it then. I saw it as an adult. This movie from the beginning is written by, directed and produced by and for anyone under the age of 9. Even then, Captain Nemo and the Underwater City is stagnant, the effects are piss poor. The only aspect about this movie that is tollerable are the sets, props and costumes. It looks like it was designed by Liberace himself. The sets and costumes are BRIGHT and gaudy.
