I remember vaguely some details. As far as scifi movie goes, it was pretty bad. The first part where the inventor shows up the gadgets is hilarious. It didn't hold up much as 'adventure movie' either since all happens inside a magmaship and there weren't any attacks from *mutant* sharks spreading some laser mayhem.
All in all pretty badly wasted cast, which I remembember was pretty good. Delroy Lindo as the inventor.
