A rather strange but enjoyable low-budget bit of escapism.
30 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

missing English accent on Leila Barry and missing accents on Bahamians mostly no-name actors (though Lynn appeared in quite a few films) small island in Bahamas Bermuda Studio Production

"Lost Lagoon" is a very low-budget film that still is very much worth seeing. Sure, it's got a few faults--but it also does amazingly well for what it is. Think about it--this is the only production by Bermuda Studio Production and the leading lady never appeared in another show or movie according to IMDb--yet it is very satisfying to watch.

The film begins with Charlie (Jeffery Lynn) approaching his brother-in-law for a loan to pay off his insurance premium. But instead of just giving him the money, the brother-in-law takes him aboard his fishing boat and they head out to sea from Miami. He does give him the money--but soon after, a huge storm hits and Charlie is washed overboard. He is assumed dead but actually washes up on an obscure island in the Bahamas (and there are LOTS of obscure little islands there). Here he is nursed back to health by a nice young lady, Elizabeth (Leila Barry). Eventually, he catches a ride back to Miami and when he returns home, no one realizes he's returned...and he starts to wonder why he returned! So, he quickly returns to the island and decides to continue letting everyone think he's dead and live out his life with Elizabeth. But, of course, there's a lot more to the story.

Perhaps this story appealed more to me because I am middle-aged and because I have recently been to the Bahamas. All I know is that although I am very happy, I could see how such a situation could be very tempting for a vaguely disaffected man. It makes for a compelling story and moral quandary. It also happens to be well made and interesting throughout. Because of the tiny budget and how effective the film is, I'm scoring this one an 8. It is currently available for streaming live through Netflix--otherwise I doubt if you'll be able to find such a small film.
