When the 'plesiosaurus' is attacking the submarine crew on top of the boat, and even kills and eats one, and it is trying to get Tyler, it has a huge head, but when it's killed and flops down onto the submarine deck, it's head and neck are much smaller. See more »

Quotes

Lisa Clayton: You know, I'm a biologist, Captain. I study the structure of living things, their motivations and their behavior. But I don't understand you. How can anyone who is so interested in life follow a profession which is devoted to destruction and killing?

Sense of wonder is at home in Caprona
1 February 2003 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a kid in the late 70s at the cinema and loved those dinosaurs. I have now watched the restored version (91 min. instead of 78 min.) on DVD and still love those dinosaurs. There are few movies that I still enjoy as much as I did a quarter of a century ago, so this obviously must have something `classic' about it, though it's hard to put the finger on it. Maybe it's just the naïve charm that was lost when computer FX spoiled fun to a certain degree in Jurassic Park and later on. No actor is a candidate for the Academy Award here, the monsters look about as deadly as your daughter's puppets, but nonetheless – more sense of wonder in the forgotten land of Caprona than anywhere else.
