Editorial Reviews

Supermodel Kathy Ireland stars in this wild and sexy fantasy-adventure as an L.A. loner stranded inthe underground'the real underground! A fast-paced and funny visual feast, this spoof of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth is a nonstop trip to fun and excitement! Social misfit Wanda (Ireland) is devastated when her boyfriend dumps her because she "lacks a sense of adventure." To prove him wrong, she goes in search of her missing father and, before long, finds herself in a bizarre underground world where crazy subterranean creatures think she's a spy and want her dead! Thwarting them at every turn, Wanda discovers an inner strength she never knew she had. But if the denizens of the underground have their way, she'll never find her fatheror see the light of day in sunny Malibuagain!

Customer Reviews

She really doesn't seem that upset though!
The Patriarch
So don't expect a great movie, but if the storyline and characters don't do much for you, hopefully the scenery will.
Renee Benefield
It was a fun way to waste 90 minutes on a summer afternoon.

Alien from L.A. stars Kathy Ireland (National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1) as waitress/social misfit Wanda. She is dumped by her boyfriend Robbie, played by Don Michael Paul (Robot Wars), because she has no sense of adventure. She easily gets car sick and has a fear of flying. Just to debunk him, Wanda heads out to Africa to find her explorer father. Before long, she finds herself in a bizarre underground world where she meets a variety of characters, including Gus (William R. Moses), Charmin' (Thom Matthews, The Return of the Living Dead), Shank (Janet Du Plessis, who also plays General Rykov), and Mambino, the boss of bosses (Deep Roy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.)

While this movie will not be receiving any Oscars, or even an MTV Movie Award, it still manages to be quite enjoyable. This was also shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and while I will eventually check out that version, since I am a fan of that show, this movie is still worth watching on its own, thanks to a groovy soundtrack, and of course, Kathy Ireland.

Recommended.

So I know it's got really bad acting and big glasses, but I love this movie. It's one of those films you can put on and laugh at, but still be intrigued with where the writer and director were trying to go with it. Sure, they could remake it and have all the special effects and crap, but the idea is a good one and it's fun.

I watched this movie for the first time many many years ago, and liked it then, and I still like it, although it's definitely very cheesy. An underground world called Atlantis (the legendary one) with all the technology of the above ground world, including the same language, is a little hard to swallow. But if you watch it for the sheer fun of it, I think you will enjoy it. It's kind of like Total Recall in a very vague sense; the scenery reminds me of Mars in Total Recall. The makeup and costuming is interesting, and I have a feeling they wanted to do a whole lot more with this movie but either budget cuts or editor cuts made this impossible. So if you want to escape from reality for an hour and a half, I'd say go for it. Kathy Ireland's voice is really annoying in this, but that was on purpose, and they turn it into a running gag. So don't expect a great movie, but if the storyline and characters don't do much for you, hopefully the scenery will. I liked it.

I watched this as a teenager with friends, and we liked it, even though it was trite and had horrible special effects. I bought it out of nostalgia, and WOW, it is really a BAD movie. Kathy Ireland is still pretty, and there are still passages that are cute and make me smile, but I had to fast forward through parts of it because I couldn't stand to watch it. Plus, she plays up the squeekiness of her voice, and it is sort of painful to sit through.
It was recommended in other reviews to buy the Mystery Science Fiction Theater 2000 version, and I REALLY wish I had.

When I was a child I recalled watching television and seeing bits of this film. For years I could not recall the title, nor could I recollect more than two scenes...I simply remembered that I loved it. So I began my search. I tell you I have revisted many visual entertainment pieces from my past and out of the many this is one of the few that still has that spark. The only thing I will state is that the story line needed to be longer and a little more in depth. Otherwise the effects were excellent for that time, and well who does not love cinema with fun theatrics?

I remembered seeing this on Mystery Science Theater 3000 a long time ago, so I thought it might be interesting to get the original movie and see how it stands up.

It doesn't.

We start with Kathy hanging out on Malibu Beach (wearing a big oversized T-shirt), getting dumped by her boyfriend. Then she gets a letter informing her that her father (who she hasn't seen in 10 years) has been killed. He was an archaeologist working in Africa. He had a theory that Atlantis was a giant spaceship that sunk to the center of the Earth after a volcanic eruption. So, Kathy goes to Africa and ends up falling down the same bottomless pit her father fell into. (It's about 30 feet deep, all the way to the center of the Earth!). Anyhow, she finds Atlantis and the government puts a price on her head - they don't like "aliens" from the surface. So various people chase her around while a couple of guys she meets defend her.

Overall, this movie is just silly and boring. Imagine "Space Hunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone", except instead of being done for a teen audience it's done for an audience of nine year old kids. You can't take any of the action the least bit seriously because it's all done in such a silly way. Really, this would make a great double-bill with "The Goonies". What the heck is the point in hiring a supermodel to star in a film for little kids?

Overall, very disappointing. If you wanna see Kathy, but one of her exercise videos instead. They're much sexier than this silly thing.
