Battle Beneath The Earth

The Chinese invent digging machines and tunnel beneath the western United States placing atomic weapons under key strategic military targets in this breathless, paranoid Cold War thriller. Honestly I became distracted very early on in this film with the images of Las Vegas in the 1960s. I realize it was filmed on a soundstage, but what genius thought to put a BBQ restaurant together with a pancake house, and then put that next to a striptease joint? Brilliant. You could eat every meal there and never leave. Anyway, after that I became bored with the tunneling, and the laser beams, and the teleporting.

Seriously though, why isn't a BBQ and Pancake House an actual thing?

After some research on the Internet, there are real BBQ and Pancake Houses. There's one in Austin. I might have to go check that out.
