Let's leave aside the small problem of one of Karkatoa which is actually being west of Java,instead of East. Another problem not being fictional here about one of the greatest disasters ever witnessed by man. The epic 1969 adventure saga was basically the last wave of films to be produced in Cinerama 70(that were released during the late 1960's)and also very entertaining of the big budgeted "Panavision" films that exploded during that era. The movie is about treasure hunters who encounter the volcanic island just as it blows apart and who then get bounced around in the ensuing tidal wave that is so technically impressive if narratively lame. The tidalwave sequence alone is worth the price of admission. Here various characters faced certain dangers above on the island and below the depths of the ocean including one horrifying sequence with one of the characters facing a monster squid. An interesting cast of famililar actors(which includes Maximilian Schell,Diane Baker,Brian Keith,Rossano Brazzi and Sal Mineo)portray the mixed group of adventurers,but the script and dialogue are so pathetically weak one just wants to get past the high drama on the high seas and the watch the geological fireworks,since fortunately they make quite a show. Not to mention some bathing beauties too in some great underwater sequences. Basically this movie came out in the summer of 1969 and was released thru Cinerama Pictures and ABC Pictures(yes,the American Broadcasting Companies motion picture division)and distributed by MGM.

It's nothing more than an overblown disaster movie (No pun intended). It is probably best known for one of the dumbest title mistakes ever done - Krakatoa is west of Java. There are some good special effects, the story is too hokey though and the performances are wooden and lack spark. Mildly entertaining and too long.

You keep expecting to see some sea monster, or dinosaur or something, but you don't. lt's a complete let down.

More look like a cheesy fireworks festival.

A film which can be summed up in five words: Krakatoa is WEST of Java!

Great disaster movie, excellent special effects and littered with subplots and stories of the cast that battle through this two hour disaster movie of volcan eruption, great stuff, Love Brian Keith in this, a very underrated actor
