Rating: 3/5 -- Still fun, but dated special effects.
Kansas City Kansan
Jan 2, 2005
Rating: 3/4 -- Allows Ray Harryhausen to showcase some superb stop-motion animation effects and the great Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, Psycho, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) to add another smashing score to his resume. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Harryhausen's special effects plus a Hermmann score, unbeatable.

Joan Greenwood's regally unflappable Lady Mary Fairchild proves again ... that her voice distills Victoria's Empire to the creamy consistency of warm butterscotch pudding. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Watchable only because of the terrific stop-motion animation of Ray Harryhausen. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Jul 31, 2008
Rating: 7/10 -- A peppy film, helped along considerably by the inherent eye candy that comes along with setting a film in the Pacific... Harryhausen at his best. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Feb 13, 2012
Rating: 7/10 -- ...a wonderful piece of sci-fi/fantasy with solid acting, a crackerjack script, and otherwise timeless Harryhausen wonder. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

The fantastic Captain Nemo once again inspires the spirit of adventure in another Jules Verne classic. Captain Cyrus Harding (Michael Craig) leads three Union soldiers in a daring escape from a Confederate prison camp in a seized Confederate balloon. A raging storm forces the balloon over the ocean toward a Pacific island on which the group becomes marooned. Two shipwrecked women share in the dangerous encounters the castaways have with a host of gigantic beasts Their fight for survival is aided by the mysterious Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom) of the submarine Nautilus, who, in an attempt to increase the world's food supply, helped create the strange animals. When a volcano erupts and threatens to destroy everyone, can Nemo save them?

Product Description:

This fantasy adventure is based on the 1870 novel by Jules Verne. A small, motley group of soldiers and civilians flee the 1865 siege of Richmond via a hot air balloon, and end up on an isolated island crawling with over-sized crabs, birds, and bees. Even more astonishing, they discover three other humans inhabiting the island: two shipwrecked women and the illustrious, long-lost Captain Nemo. Ray Harryhausen's special effects, which include a battle with a giant crab and abduction by an enormous bird, still have the power to thrill and amaze.
