The Neptune Factor (1973)

The-Neptune-Factor-20th-Century-Fox-1973

When an underwater ocean lab is lost in a earthquake, an advanced submarine is sent down to find it and encounters terrible danger. (IMDb)

An exciting enough undersea rescue premise here is expanded upon to be anything but, with the decent drama accompanying the initial catastrophe being slowly snuffed out by a terribly slow-paced rescue mission that somehow ends up being more about silently gazing at “giant” pet store fish then rescuing their comrades, while the dangers of water pressure and a depleted sub battery are stated and then promptly ignored without explanation in the inconsequential climax. A badly made and boring film.

4.5/10
