Customer Review

A medical and science crew board a submarine and are miniaturised and injected into an important foreign scientist body. The mission is to remove a blood clot on his brain that was suffered during an assassination attempt. Once shrunk and in their new bodily world, the team must battle the body's defence systems as well as avoiding trouble with the major organs. Also on a clock of one hour before they return to normal size, they have to also contend with the fact there may be a saboteur on board. This is one fantastical voyage indeed.

The crew's voyage thru the body's bloodstream and beyond is brought to life by the use of some inventive special effects. Thus making Fantastic Voyage one of the more visually appealing genre pictures of the time. The film won Oscars for Best Colour Art Direction and for Best Visual Effects. It was also nominated for Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Sound Effects. It is in short a tip top production. Based on the novel written by Otto Klement and Jay Lewis Bixby, the story is imaginative and totally engrossing, which is something that helps offset the staid performances from the cast. But really are we watching this for thespian delights? No of course not. We want director Richard Fleischer to take us on a perilous journey thru the human body, and maybe just give us some suspense into the bargain. Something that is achieved, even if the ending is a little too rushed for comfort. Silly and wonderful. 7/10
