Goofs

Challenger gives Summerlee a note with "directions" on it to The Lost World. He then shows up at 12:00 when the expedition is supposed to start. How would Challenger guarantee himself that he would show up exactly at that time? Plus, if he did it would mean that he would have to be on the same boat, which he wasn't. He couldn't have been on a different boat and left at the same time for the same place either. That is a waste of resources and a transportation company would not do it. See more »

Doyle's Professor Finally Appears
7 December 2000 | by (Cleveland<ohio) – See all my reviews

There isn't anything to add regarding most of the production values or plot summaries that hasn't been addressed earlier.What impressed me was our hero,the bold Professor George Edward Challenger- an outstanding portrayal by an outstanding character actor.The original character,as conceived by Doyle,is truly larger than life.Bold,brave,arrogant,brilliant,insightful,virile,unscrupulous when attaining his goals,humorous,and reckless,and resourceful.John Rhys-Davies epitomizes this character without a flaw.(Brian Blessed is the only other actor I can imagine pulling it off,but the portrayal would have had a gleefully sadistic element not in keeping.And Warner is a worthy foil-arch,pompous,equally arrogant and ereudite,yet possessing the same high level of scholarly integrity and brilliance.Watch this,not as great art(I don't think they ever intended it as such,but as a lot of fun.
