Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Shrunken doctors in a mini-sub journeying through the body of a dying Czech scientist to perform interior brain surgery provide the plot for this wonderfully ludicrous 1960s sci-fi classic. An interesting cast includes Stephen Boyd as a secret agent, Raquel Welch in a tight diving suit and Donald Pleasence in danger from rampaging white corpuscles. Director Richard Fleischer's deft execution and tremendous special effects (for the time) make for an imaginative guided tour through the bloodstream to witness the wonders of the heart, lungs and other assorted organs, along with the requisite doses of sex, suspense and sabotage.
