Audience Reviews for The Mysterious Island

it looks like i'm the 4th person on flixster to rate this so i think it needs a review. it's a mostly silent underseas adventure starring lionel barrymore as a scientist who wants to prove the existence of mermen. he builds some submarines which are promptly confiscated by the military for more nefarious purposes. there're some really well done scenes including octopus attacks; very cool effects for 1929. a kind of prequel to 20,000 leagues under the sea
