There's so much going on in the shoestring gem that is The Atomic Submarine that it seems only incidentally science fiction.

Even for a meager exploitation film, The Atomic Submarine isn't anything to brag about.

Audience Reviews for The Atomic Submarine

Fun classic ?B? picture, a very entertaining sci-fi monster movie from the 1950?s, the low budget makes it more entertaining. The special effects are not very good, but I have always liked these old sci-fi/horror movies from this era.
