I saw this originally on TV many years ago and remembered it, but I hadn't seen it since then. I purchased this Warner version as soon as it came out and I am very pleased with the movie.

The transfer of the movie itself is quite clean. The only detraction is the poor opening blue background scene that goes on for a couple minutes. It is a poor opening impression to the movie. If this is your first time seeing the movie, I'd recommend you skip that and just start with the movie itself.

For those unfamiliar with the movie, Nemo has built an underwater city, has 2 submarines, and has withdrawn from the world along with several hundred other people. Unlike the Disney version, this one makes no references to that movie and is independent of it. Likewise, this Nemo doesn't go around sinking ships, but instead rescues people drowning in the ocean.

Most of the remaining cast were rescued in the opening of the movie, and we follow their story and their interactions with Nemo and a few of his senior staff/workers.

The inside scenes of the submarines are quite good. The outside shots of the submarines are a little disappointing, but still engaging. The inside scenes in the underwater city are good, but some of the underwater scuba scenes are muted.

Overall, this is a good picture and the conflicts/struggles between the cast members are believable. I enjoyed seeing it again, and my 4 year old son liked seeing it also.

About Me Movie Buff

Comments about Captain Nemo&Undrwtr City (MOD):

I saw this movie in my youth and spent 20+ years looking for it-forgot the title-. So happy I found it. GREAT movie for the time it was made. PLEASE do not remake this movie(we've seen the results of Hollywood remakes). I'm a bit swayed by my usual criticism of movies. I just love this movie. Faults that it has-so what-. It is just FUN.

    INSPIRED BY SEVERAL JULES VERNE VOLUMES, CAPTAIN NEMO AND THE UNDERWATER CITY IS AN UNDERRATED SCIENCE FICTION CLASSIC. ROBERT RYAN PROJECTS AUTHORITY IN THE TITULAR ROLE, MAINTAINING AN IRON-WILLED POWER OVER HIS BELOVED NAUTILUS FOR FEAR THAT THE WORLD WILL DISCOVER ITS SECRETS. NEMO REFUSES TO LET HIS GUESTS AND INHABITANTS LEAVE-WHICH INCLUDE SENATOR CHUCK CONNORS, WIDOW NANETTE NEWMAN, 007 VILLIANESS LUCIANNA PALUZZI AS AN INSTRUCTRESS AND PROMISED MATE TO CAPTAIN JOHN TURNER, AND FEAR-DRIVEN DOCTOR ALLAN CUTHBERTSON. MASTERFULLY FILMED AT THE FAMED MGM BOREHAMWOOD COMPLEX, CAPTAIN NEMO IS THE PERFECT FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT.

    This is another extremely competent DVD transfer. Detail is excellent, clarity pleasing and contrast pretty good.
    The dialog is clear, clean and easy to follow.
    One of the most beautiful Print so far from WB Archive.
    Another Great M.G.M Film.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

        This movie stuck w/ me from my childhood and I was never able to find it on DVD. I was very happy to see it offered from the Warner Brothers archive. It's a classic science fiction film, very representative of its time period, with classic early special effects, and an old-fashioned feel.

          I saw this movie when it first came on TV and now over joyed that it is part of my collection of DVD's. My 7 years old grandson watched and he loved the underwater scenes. The stoy line has a cetain appeal to somepeople and not to others. The story line to me is people will find a way to wage war and the oceans should be a place where there should be no war and a place of peace, you know a kind of safe harbor for those of us who believe that we should learn to live togeather and not wage war at a drop of a hat live we do today.

              This was one of the "Saturday matinee" movies of my youth. I loved the Disney 2000 Leagues under the Sea so I loved this one. I showed it to my young daughter who thought it was OK but slow moving and with a cheaply done monster stingray.

              This is a perfect choice for the Warner Archive series.
