Trivia

Michael Sinelnikoff also played Dr. Summerlee in the TV Series The Lost World (1999). See more »

Goofs

In the museum when Challenger is giving his lecture, the camera zooms out of a carnivorous dinosaur's mouth. The dinosaur is mounted in a horizontal, not vertical standing, which would have been correct for the period. Also, Challenger and Summerlee comment on the live dinosaurs on the Plateau as standing in a different way than originally conceived. This makes no sense if they have a skeleton set up that way in their museum. See more »

Quotes

Amanda White: [Looking at the view threw binoculars] What an incredible view.
John Roxton: [Looking at Amanda's chest] It sure is.

Probably the worst film I've ever seen
7 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film starts fine but once the mission to find "The Lost World" starts, it goes from not so good, to bad, to terrible and is very quickly farcical.

I would imagine that this was a box office flop and if so, I'm not surprised. Mind you, on the budget it was clearly made on, they (the Financiers) can't have lost very much money, I think my Children's pocket money for a year could have paid for better special effects.

The inaccuracy too is ludicrous. Since when did the original location of Conan Doyle's masterpiece transpose from South America to Mongolia? And since when did Mongolia look so much like Canada? If you've never seen another version of this film or read the book, you might enjoy it. Bon Chance!
