When the American clipper ship "The Queen" is attacked by pirates off the Hebrides in 1830, Mate Kirk Hamilton is injured and must be put ashore at Queensland Colony, Australia, for treatment and recuperation. There, he meets and falls in love with Elaine Jeffries, daughter of the magistrate and all-but-fiancée to rancher Martin Shannon. She also finds herself attracted to Kirk, and a rivalry develops between the two men. Meantime the pirates, led by Captain Hackett, decide to raid the colony and, in the process kidnap Elaine and her friend, Nancy. Kirk and Shannon lead the pursuit, having not only the romantic triangle to resolve but the pirates to overcome and, along the way, being stranded on a volcanic island inhabited by dinosaurs...

This film was heavily advertised as a living dinosaur/giant monster movie. However, dinosaurs appear only for 2-3 minutes in the final reel. The dinosaurs are actually only stock footage taken from One Million B.C. (1940); no original dinosaur effects were shot. See more »
Two Lost Worlds is more of an adventure movie than a sci-fi but I still quite enjoyed this.
After being attacked by pirates, the clipper ship The Queen settles in Queensland, Austrlia while its captain recovers from injuries received during the attack. He falls in love with one of the local girls there and pirates then raid the colony and they escape. After the ship is attacked again and set on fire, the few survivors end up on an uncharted island where they encounter dinosaurs and then a volcanic eruption and earthquake and are then rescued.
The dinosaur footage in this movie is the fight from One Million BC, as is the disaster footage, where we get to see more enlarged lizards from that movie too.
The only member of the cast I've heard of in this is James Arness (The Thing From Another World, Them!).
Despite the low budget, Two Lost Worlds is worth watching. Not bad at all.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
