  • An epic and appreciated MacGyver adventure, but flawed by too many imperfections.

    • Atticus: (seeing MacGyver rig a gadget) That's neat. MacGyver: Neat? Atticus: Neat.

    • Atticus: Bravo. I always said you were my brightest student. If only you'd applied yourself at university... MacGyver: Professor! Atticus: Quite right. Carry on.

    • Kelly: It's been torn apart. MacGyver: All right, don't touch anything. I'll call the police. Atticus: Nonsense! This is how it always looks. A neat office is the product of an empty mind.

    • MacGyver: There's no key for the magneto switch. Kelly: That's what I was trying to tell you. I removed it so they couldn't take off with the artifacts. MacGyver: That's a great idea. Where is it? Kelly: Out there. MacGyver: That's a bad idea.

    • Atticus: The planets must be orbiting closer to the alignment. Kelly: Or the gravitational shift of the alignment's making the volcano unstable. MacGyver: I hate when that happens.

    Notes (2)

    • The German title is "Jagd nach dem Schatz von Atlantis", meaning "Hunt for the Treasure of Atlantis".

    • This is the first of two MacGyver television movies, and it is not part of the television series. It runs 1:32 without commercials.

    Trivia (3)

    • No such conjunction of planets occurred anytime between 1962 and 2000. Even if it did, the gravitational force of any of the bodies involved other than the Moon would be non-existent, as mass and tidal force depends on the square and cube of the distance, respectively. All of the planets combined would at best only have a gravitational pull of 1.698% that of the Moon, or a tidal pull of .00575% of the Moon. This wouldn't affect volcanoes on Earth prior to the arrival of the Hecate meteor, as is shown here.

    • MacGyver asks who the "fella" is pictured on the Ark case at the academy, and Kelly identifies the representation as Hecate. Hecate is a female goddess.

    • MacGyver needs to relight a candle after accidentally blowing it out, but the close-up shows him lighting a clean, unused wick.
