Two hospitalized young people discover that things can get even worse when the dilapidated institution is stranded by a severe storm and a maniac stalks the corridors butchering the patients and staff.
A scientist leads a team of Navy SEALs back in time to the Cretaceous Period to rescue the first team he sent back during the 1940s. Things go wildly when he accidentally brings a giant dinosaur back into Los Angeles.
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 »
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!
