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 »

Cheaply made but likeable.
9 October 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

There is something rather endearing about this cheapie production, there is no sex or nudity and any violence or gore is muted, it's obviously made for the family audience.Although low budget it's rather a pleasant looking production.

The acting by the leads is good but some of the natives look as though they would be more at home on urban streets or in a disco than in a jungle, however Nathania Stanford as Malu has a cheeky grin and looks pretty good in a sarong.

The monsters are hokey with no attempt to hide the fact that they are puppets (Jurassic Park this ain't), usually they are more cute than frightening.

All in all not badly done within it's limits.
