Been trying to remember this one for a little while now. Have attempted a few times to find this online but have had little to no luck.
- Estimated year of film: 90s
- Setting: Coastal region America / UK
- Language: English
- Main character: Dark haired boy
- Type: TV Movie
My memory of the film itself is very thin but I do remember a few key plots and one particular scene.
The kid in the film has a vast knowledge about submarines and other maritime vessels mainly WW2 types maybe. Unknown back story but believe he moved to the area recently.
A longish haired bad guy is involved and they both end up in pursuit of valuable lost artefacts or treasure.
At the end of the film the bad guys and the boy find what there looking for. As the main bad guy goes to do something a torpedo slides down from the ceiling and stops in front of him. Then a puff of gas comes out the end of it, possibly some sort of nerve agent. The real sticking point was the bad guy violently foaming at the mouth as the nerve gas effectively kills him.
Additional Details: The film takes place in modern times. I believe the kid had a friend, possibly female (very unsure). It was live-action, not animated.
Unfortunately I have no further information but if anyone knows the film be great to find it again!
