Quotes

Whiteley: You know it could be more difficult to leave Caprona than it was to land. We'll have that current with us going out through the tunnel. Be very difficult to navigate.
Dietz: Captain Von Schoenvorts will take us through. I was with him when he took our U-33 down the Norwegian coast in winter, to sink a British cruiser. Storms and ice floes did not stop him.
Olson: He's not very good against lifeboats, though, is he?

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.
