  • Fantastic Voyage

    Fantastic Voyage

    ★★★

    Fantastic Voyage is rather enjoyable. Yes there’s a couple of logic errors but if a film gets everything else right I can forgive those, and Fantastic Voyage does do a great job on everything else.

    The cast are solid, everything is played straight, and the fact that the last hour of the film is approximately real time adds a better sense of urgency than the countdown clock, which while present is mostly a background element.

    ★★★

    There's nothing like bad 60s Italian Sci-Fi. It has a special edge of weirdness that is hard to beat.

    A fun script,  great voice actors, and some gorgeous animation all combine into a fun film.
