2001: A Space Odyssey took the world on a mind-bending trip to outer space, but Fantastic Voyage is the original psychedelic inner-space adventure. When a brilliant scientist falls into a coma with an inoperable blood clot in the brain, a surgical team embarks on a top-secret journey to the center of the mind in a high-tech military submarine shrunk to microbial dimensions. Stephen Boyd stars as a colorless commander sent to keep an eye on things (though his eyes stay mostly on shapely medical assistant Raquel Welch), while Donald Pleasance is suitably twitchy as the claustrophobic medical consultant. The science is shaky at best, but the imaginative spectacle is marvelous: scuba-diving surgeons battle white blood cells, tap the lungs to replenish the oxygen supply, and shoot the aorta like daredevil surfers. The film took home a well-deserved Oscar for Best Visual Effects. Director Richard Fleischer, who turned Disney's 1954 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea into one of the most riveting submarine adventures of all time, creates a picture so taut with cold-war tensions and cloak-and-dagger secrecy that niggling scientific contradictions (such as, how do miniaturized humans breathe full-sized air molecules?) seem moot. --Sean Axmaker
First, a great story and so so special effects... Great movies..
Despite these limitations, and the lack of drama to sustain a viable narrative, one reponds to "Fantastic Voyage" both visually and aesthetically.
They are immediately introduced to glowing, bubbly blood cells that make it look like they've accidently wandered into a lava lamp.
I saw this movie before and liked it very much.
I wanted to buy it, so i can watch it again, instead
waiting till it airs again.
Both movies were as I remembered them but almost as if they were made yesterday. The buying experience was great.Published 8 months ago by Patrick M. Came

I bought this for the film Fantastic Voyage. A great original story about scientists and doctors being miniaturized and injected into a living human body. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Celia DLF
I had seen Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea before, and it is a good, but not great, sci-fi movie. I was not impressed much by Fantastic Voyage.Published 10 months ago by Steve in Memphis
