Incredibly dated but iconic sci-fi gem about a team of scientists who are miniaturised in a vessel and injected into a comatose, brain-damaged scientists bloodstream to repair the damage.
While the production design and visual effects were groundbreaking in the 1960's, by today's standards this looks like a cheesy TV movie or an episode of Doctor Who. Enjoyable enough for its story, but time really hasn't been very kind.
