A series of earthquakes have been shaking the USA of late which are geologically totally inexplicable, and only one man thinks he knows the answer, geologist Kramer (Peter Arne) - but his theories about secret tunnles beneath the US are simply too wild to not throw Kramer into the loonie bin ... thus he's thrown into the loonie bin of course. Luckily, eventually these secret tunnles are found, and they are found to be manmade, and also luckily, Kramer's best pal Shaw (Kerwin Mathews) is with the army, knows about his theories, and gets him out of the loonie bin to work for the loonie bin ... erm, gouvernment I mean. Soon, the technology is developed to find the tunnles are running all under the country, as if (and excuse the pun) to undermine the country, and thus, Shaw, Kramer, a pretty girl, erm, geologist (Vivienne Ventura) and a few soldiers are sent down a tunnle in Hawaii (well, I said all the USA) to see what's going on, and before they know it, they stumble upon a renegade Chinaman (Martin Benson) with plans to blow up the United States. Kramer is captured by the Chinaman and his cronies soon enough, brainwashed and forced to lure his friends into an ambush - but he dies a hero's death freeing them again, and then Shaw, pretty girl and company come across the bombs to blow up the USA, they arm them while still under the Ocean, waits until the Chinaman catches up with them, then blow them up in safe distance from the mainland - and not only is our villain killed by this, his whole tunnle system is flooded beyond repair as well.


Somehow this is a cute British film that tries to combine drive-in anti-commie propaganda from the 1950's, Jules Verne-style science fiction and James Bond-motives to ... something the budget just wouldn't allow. So we get cheap effects, unconvincing sets and props, action setpieces that just fail to totally excite, all serving to carry not only today rather antiquated political points of view and weird ideas of world conquest. So no, it's not a good movie by any measure - but that's one of the things that makes it enjoyable, right?
