Oh, and the kind of movie that's pretty much all about Raquel Welch's breasts.
|In the interest of fairness, I should add that the movie's occasionally about her legs and thighs too.|
|I like to think this is when Fathom chose her outfit to rep' my alma mater, Iowa State University.|
former MMOTW Pretty Poison a year later and would eventually scribe the all-time classic Flash Gordon - was also a graduate of the Batman series and film - does a good job of keeping everything balanced in Fathom. There are very few actual jokes in the comic adventure, but the lighthearted nature of the film keeps a smile on the viewer's face even when Fathom is facing an angry bull or a loaded gun. There's little suspense to the mysterious plot - the minor twists lead to the expected Hollywood ending - but the story lets Welch, Franciosa, and the rest of the gang loose in exotic European locations, leaving us with a light-hearted mixture of Bond movie tricks and Hitchcock movie traps. With boobs.
Yessir, I'm for that.
