What Waits Below Reviews

After fleeing enemy soldiers in Nicaragua, mercenary Wolfson (Robert Powell) hooks up with American army officer Maj. Stevens (Timothy Bottoms) for a new assignment. Wolfson is soon working with Stevens on a radio device contacting submarines, but new troubles quickly develop. When anthropologists located near the army base open up some previously sealed caves, they inadvertently expose a hidden culture of underground dwellers who have been undisturbed for hundreds of years. The submarine radio transmitter is hard on this race's highly sensitive ears and violence quickly erupts. This tale of spelunking intrigues is about as exciting as watching the formation of stalagmites. The dangers are largely implied, with only remotely electrifying sequences popping up now and again. Powell and Bottoms are passable but not much more in their undemanding roles.
