Missed Opportunity
6 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If somebody wants to make a knock-off of Lost Horizon without Ronald Coleman, they should improve on it somehow. The only remake that was better was Flubber. If you have saw the original Lost Horizon and liked it then don't watch this movie. If you haven't watched Lost Horizon then you can watch this movie first and then watch the original Lost Horizon. You will notice the original Lost Horizon is much better despite one caveat from me.

They did improve it with the improved graphics. But from there on it just went downhill. The Ronald Coleman replacement of Susan Dey was just too whiny, shrill, and complaining. The bad guy that wanted to get out of there was just too bad to be believable. Why force others to go instead of just going yourself? In the original Lost Horizon the warping of the beliefs of what I would assume would be Tibetans to be Christian seemed forced and contrived to me. I assume Frank Capra did it that way because it just wouldn't be understood or accepted by people of that time. But by now most people understand Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism and other religions enough that they could have emphasized the seeking of a greater understanding and higher spirituality. They didn't and the movie fell flat because of it.

I don't completely blame Susan Dey for why it failed. It was mainly the poor scripting and the lack of directing talents of Frank Capra that killed it. But Susan Dey should have pointed out to the director that he made her sound like a whining brat rather than a seeker of greater spiritual insight and wisdom.
