The Delos Adventure (1987) from Tuna

The Delos Adventure (1987) is a budget release of a cold war conflict adventure film that has a team going to a remote island off the coast of Argentina to place seismic buoys and a SATCOM link. They think it is for geological research, but it is actually a Navel Intelligence system to track Soviet submarines. The Russians got there first in a submersible platform called Delos, and begins killing the US team.

The exposure is from one-time wonder Kathryn Noble, who shows an excellent body (breasts and buns, and maybe a hint of bush) in a totally gratuitous nude swimming scene as the girlfriend of someone who works at the lab. There are no reviews or comments available on-line. The quality on the budget DVD was poor, so it is hard to tell if it was technically decent or not, but it was a ho-hum average cold war thriller.

The People Vote ...


IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C-.
