Walter Pidgeon is the nominal star of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, portraying Admiral Harriman Nelson, the designer of the submarine Seaview, a glass-nosed research submarine. The sub embarks on her shakedown cruise under the polar ice cap as the movie begins. Upon surfacing, however, the crew discovers that the entire sky is on fire -- the Van Allen radiation belt has been ignited by a freak meteor shower, and the Earth is being slowly burnt to a cinder.

Walter Pidgeon stars as the sub commander, a pre-I Dream of Jeannie Barbara Eden plays his secretary, and Peter Lorre amuses as a brilliant scientist.
The science in the movie is crazy bad. The special effects are cheesy and laughable. But, it's campy and fun.
Irwin Allen's "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" may be a campy affair, but you've got to give them credit for talking about climate change at least 30 years before it became a "hot" topic in the scientific community.
"Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" has an interesting premise, but the problem lies in giving the crew something to do on their way to carry out their mission.
It's a film to be enjoyed for its DeLuxe Technicolor eye candy visuals.
It's the fantastic situations that give you the feeling all this excitement just maybe could be real.
Amusing, attractive, now somewhat quaint sci-fi flick.
