Richard Norton in Nautilus (2000)

Naut a Lot Going on Here to See

Captain Noah Brin (Christopher Kriesa) and his daughter Ariel (Miranda Wolfe) live aboard the Nautilus a submarine with special capabilities and where they conduct their experiments. Their main experiment is time travel as they want to journey back in time to prevent a cataclysmic chain of events which plunge the planet in to the dark ages.

Welcome to a world where I imagine direction consisted of stand where I tell you and say your lines as macho as you can, and don't worry if the lines are corny because audiences enjoy that stuff. And truth be told there was a time, admittedly a decade before "Nautilus" was made, that I use to seek out this sort of nonsense as I found it entertaining. Sadly the days where I could tolerate nonsense like this have pretty much gone and I need to be having a very good day to find this sort of thing entertaining.

As to what this sort of thing is, well let me try and sum it up as saying we have some people from the future travelling back to the past to prevent a catastrophe and in the past we have Jack Harris as Macgyver style hero who can take down bad guys with a mix of his fighting skills alongside a pocket sized crossbow and a fountain pen, yes the pen is mightier than a crossbow bolt in this case. I could go on but I fear that I could end up finding ways of being sarcastic about this movie more entertaining than the movie was to watch.

What this all boils down to is that "Nautilus" is poor, a weak sci-fi movie which features bad acting, bad dialogue and the sort of bad action where things explode before they even get hit. About the only thing worth mention in this is that a boat called Prometheus gets blown up.
