Major Joe Nolan (CesarRomero) leads a search in the South Pacific for a lost atomic rocket that went off course. As they fly over an island a strange force causes their plane to crash. Native girl points then to a plateau that she saw the rocket/ fire bird fly into. The plateau is the dwelling place of their gods and none that go on it returns. So off the party goes up the plateau to find the rocket.

50’s comic book like story with several good actors, but a fair/corny script. The special effects are bad even for this time. On the plus side I didn’t fall asleep and I got just what I expected in watching it.

“We are under orders not to break radio silence until we find the rocket. “

Weak 50’s sci-fi movie, but if you like them, you like then—-03/10
