Fantastic Voyage

In its time, "Fantastic Voyage" had the premium of special effects. Today, we can only say the special effects are dated but sufficient. Seconds before a scientist can mutter an important scientific finding, he gets into an accident and goes into a coma. Surgeons find that he has an inoperable blood clot in the brain and the only way to clear it is to shrink a team of scientists in a submarine and dissolve it with a laser. They do just that. The team must navigate their way through the human body and reach the brain in 60 minutes or they'll grow back to their normal size. They battle mis-navigations, disasters and the immune system. A creative and exciting adventure, but the dialogue is weak in places.
