Karl Stromberg is this particular movie’s nemesis, and like so many that have come before him, he has a pretty nasty plan for the future of mankind. Basically, they will all die in a terrible nuclear tragedy and he will restart it with people of his choosing in Atlantis, his under-water world.
Sadly, miniaturisation, perspective, size and dimensions, are not entirely convincing, and the current smaller base that Stromberg rattles around in, looks about as big as a dustbin lid in a bath.
Mind you, it’s perhaps a little surprising that this sort of thing hasn’t happened in real life.
Still, maybe it has!
Sean Connery has a home in the private gated community of Lyford Cay, Providence, Bahamas, where houses sell for up to $40,000,000. This particular 007 obviously loved the Bahamas, several of his movies were filmed there and it has proven to be one of the most popular locations for the production team.
Sadly, there are no submersible homes as big as cities in the Bahamas, but there is a land based hotel that would be regarded as one of the foremost resort hotel in the world.
It's name: Atlantis.
