A long way from the best of the Doug McClure-Kevin Connor-John Dark fantasy adventures,
This review is from: Warlords of Atlantis [DVD]  (DVD)
Warlords of Atlantis is pretty formulaic stuff: explorers spend first half hour looking for Atlantis, second half hour finding out they don't like it and the last half hour escaping from it. Throw in a giant octopus, a dinosaur, assorted monsters and aliens with outrageous wigs guiding man's destiny from the bottom of the sea, the captain of the Marie Celeste, a bit of H.G. Wells' First Men in the Moon, add Doug McClure and leave to simmer for 90 minutes before wondering why this isn't as much fun as it should be or why Mike Vickers' score bears so many similarities to a slow-tempo version of Barry Gray and Malcolm Lockyer's score for Dr Who and The Daleks.
The DVD boasts a decent but not outstanding widescreen print but unlike the earlier Cinema Club release which included UK theatrical trailer and stills gallery, StudioCanal's release is extras-free.
