An elite team of medical and scientific specialists race to save a top government scientist who is suffering from blood clot on the brain. Their mission is to be reduced along with their submarine-like craft to microscope size, enter the bloodstream of the ailing scientist, and journey to the brain to perform an emergency procedure. With only sixty minutes to complete their mission, the scientists find themselves fighting off an attack by white corpuscles, caught in a tornado-like storm in the lungs, and struggling to surviv sabotage from one of their own.

I only ever saw this from halfway through on the Disney Channel until I checked it out at the library.

Just as good as I remember as a kid, though this film does make me feel like a kid again. Fantastic special effects for the time. The cast is a cut above your expectations, intelligent dialog, sci-fi peril, race-against-the-clock, nail-biting tension, and takes it's time with showing you all the world-building tech (how do you insert miniaturized people into a human being without crushing them? Using a surprisingly intelligent/well-thought-out method).

This one is a classic. Rent it if you've never seen it before just to experience some classic sci-fi.

If you enjoy this you may also enjoy Colossus: The Forbin Project, Andromeda Strain, and The Black Hole (with similar cheesy wire work to this film).

For 1967, a well done plot, storyline and acting. The special effects were top for its time. A classic late 1960's Sci-Fi movie with a great cast. if you like sci-fi, watch this.

A G rated movie, ... fun for the entire family.

Yes. Fantastic Voyage is somewhat dated - But, all the same, it has got to be one of the most unique, entertaining, and imaginative SyFy films ever produced during the 1960s. This film's story sets into motion an amazing journey that travels to the deepest reaches of space... Inner space.

With the brilliant science of miniaturization now unlocked, the American military have a big problem on their hands when the top scientist carrying its secret is seriously injured in a surprise attack and a life-threatening blood clot puts him into a deep coma.

Now, a daring team of adventurers are subjected to this dazzling technology and, once inside a high-tech, mini-submarine, they travel within his body in order to destroy the clot that's situated in his brain.

Facing the powerful barricades of the body's natural defences that are fighting hard against them, and a determined saboteur on board who's out to thwart their earnest mission, this diligent team must quickly locate and destroy the deadly clot before the miniaturization process wears off.

With its amazing set-designs and impressive visual effects (for its time), Fantastic Voyage, from 1966, stars the square-jawed, cleft-chinned super-hunk, Stephen Boyd, and the lovely, statuesque beauty, Raquel Welch.
