Warlords of Atlantis (1978)

warlordsofatlantis_001

It may be small change compared with today’s CGI monster movies, but this is still a decent romp from director Kevin Connor, and it’s far better paced than The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Doug McClure plays the clean-cut Hollywood hero (who’s about as Victorian as skateboards) who discovers the fabled city of Atlantis (ruled, would you believe, by Cyd Charisse and Daniel Massey) and its monstrous menagerie of sundry sea beasties – including a giant octopus.

The sets and the creatures are as wobbly as the script and the performances, but that’s just part of the charm of this cheesy romp.
