When a volcano erupts, a deep-sea vessel full of scientists suffers damage and begins to lose control. To their rescue comes Captain MacKenzie (Joseph Cotton, CITIZEN KANE), commander of Alpha, a high-tech atomic submarine. The captain takes the crew to a secret underwater utopia called "Latitude Zero" that is dedicated to the preservation and protection of mankind. With a completely opposite agenda, the evil Dr. Malic (Cesar Romero, The Joker from TV's BATMAN) wishes to kidnap and experiment on the scientists in order to add to his roster of super-intelligent freak minions. Now it's up to Captain MacKenzie and his crew to save the day. Another Toho classic from the legendary Ishiro Honda (GODZILLA, MATANGO), LATITUDE ZERO boasts an all-star cast that also includes Richard Jaeckel (GRIZZLY) and Linda Haynes (HUMAN EXPERIMENTS), and terrific model and
special effects work.

If you need something photorealistic, if you lack the imagination to suspend your disbelief for 100 minutes, if you can't appreciate laser cannons and flying subs and giant attack-rats, then you don't DESERVE this movie. But if you're looking for a good time in an undersea dome in the year 1969... LATITUDE ZERO is where it's at, baby.
This film belongs in the same category as H.R. Pufnstuf; it features bizarre creatures that look like huge stuffed animals. The action is severely limited and childlike. Cesar Romero is doing a modified watered-down version of the Joker, all wild eyed, with a lackluster cackle. It doesn’t help that the third American lead (Richard Jaeckel) is obnoxious and loud as the greedy journalist. The Wizard of Oz ending is also problematic.
The 2 disc version is a bit misleading, because on one disk there is the japanese version without subtitles and on the other cd the english version, there are hardly sone extras-but this is common for an old film like that.
The film itself is good, you fell totaly warped to your childhood back in time. i enjoyed it very much!
