Movie Info

In this rabid anti-communist science fiction tract, scientist Arnold Kramer (Peter Arne) convinces the Pentagon that the communist Chinese are digging a complex series of tunnels from China and beneath the United States, from which they plan to detonate nuclear weapons and destroy the free world. Kramer enlists Commander Jonathan Shaw (Kerwin Mathews) to assist Kramer in trying to prevent the literal and final collapse of the U.S.A. Shaw sets up shop inside an extinct Hawaiian volcano, attempting to destroy the main supply tunnel coming from China. But before the team can complete their mission, they are captured y the evil Chinese. Now it is up to Shaw and Kramer to escape the clutches of the Chinese in order to activate a nuclear stockpile inside the tunnel and incinerate the Chinese forces. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Battle Beneath the Earth

Not quite P.C. in this day and age. I saw it as a kid in a local drive-in. Kind of liked it (of course...seeing 'army guys' running around shooting 'bad guys' was the rage. The music, a jazz style, may not fit with the flick at all, but it wasn't too shabby. As for the plot...well, this would have to be placed in the 'weird science fiction' category: An unknown group (of Oriental descent) are secretly using a laser drill to construct tunnels under the ocean to eventually smuggle atomic weapons under the United States. I wouldn't recommend it, except for people who are really into watching cheesy bad movies.
