Stands out from the crowd.
18 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

The sequel to 'The Land That Time Forgot'. With World War 1 now over, the British navy sets out to the lost world of Caprona to find the still-missing hero of the first film. However, their amphi-plane is attacked by a pterodactyl and they are forced to crash-land.

This is a rare case - a sequel that is just as good as its predecessor. The characters are well-thought-out and believable, the plot is entertaining and well-written and the music is good. The consequences of developed societies advancing the development of untouched tribes also makes for an interesting storyline. The special effects are improved, despite the odd dodgy model, and on the whole the film is excellent viewing.
