Goofs

About eleven minutes into the movie, Professor Challenger is addressing the Royal Zoological Society and is approaching the speakers table from the back of the room. Looking over his shoulder you can see the ceiling on the underside of the balcony at the back of the room. There are modern (1980's to 1990's) fluorescent lighting fixtures on that ceiling, even though the movie is set in 1912. See more »

Starts off excellently, but then....
19 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

Finally Conan Doyle's masterpiece is re-made (and without the help of made-up lizards). This film starts off very promisingly indeed, is faithful to the text in the original novel. But before long things start to go downhill. Roxton is nowhere to be seen and the number of people who end up stranded in the lost world is far too large. The film seems more interested in political correctness than drama. Challenger, though well acted, is nothing like the fiery character he was envisaged as by Conan Doyle. In fact everything seems to be very cosy and twee. The dinosaurs are the biggest disappointment of all. Apart from one okay scene by a lake, the giant reptiles are rubbery and lifeless, the T-Rex seemingly rooted to the spot and only visible from the chest upwards. The creatures are also few and far between and there's no sense of awe and wonder about them.

If you want to see a decent adaptation of Conan Doyle's work then watch the silent 1925 version. Even in these days of CGI and other such effects the first adaptation remains the best.
