Storyline

Professor Challenger reveals the existence of a remote plateau in the Amazon jungle where dinosaurs have survived. He returns there leading an expedition. Not only are dinosaurs found and confronted, but also highly evolved apes, Amazonian Indians who think Challenger a god, and, on the way, the attractive orphaned niece of a lonely missionary. Theology intervenes in this exercise in vindicating Darwin and the missionary twice attempts to sabotage the mission. After much excitement, love is found in unexpected places, and, confronted by civilization, as represented by the Royal Society in London, Challenger changes his story.

Quotes

Prof. George Challenger: You've been in a few scrapes, Roxton. Have you ever been in a situation worse than this?
Lord John Phillip Roxton: Uh, well, let me see. No. No, I think I can quite safely say this is the least promising set-up I've ever encountered.
Prof. George Challenger: Oh.
Lord John Phillip Roxton: We have no way down off the plateau, and thanks to your insistence on secrecy, the only person who even has a clue where we are is a religious lunatic who seems quite happy to let us die here.
Prof. George Challenger: Well, there's no need to be so cheerful about it.

Decent adaptation
5 March 2004 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

This was easily the best version of The Lost World ever made, leaving all of the others trailing in the dust. Though the story was changed, the essence of the original story was strong throughout the movie. But they did have scenes from the book that were not shown in any of the other movies that I have seen (all but the black and white version), like when Malone climbs the tree to get a look at the layout of the plateau, and his encounter with the ape/men during it. They also had the chase scene involving Malone and the Carnivore (in this case, it was an Allosaur), though they changed the time and reason for that occurrance, and they added Agnes Clooney (Elaine Cassidy), a character that never existed in the book. The Movie had a great cast, Including Bob Hoskins and Peter Faulke, but some of the humor in the beginning was very cliche, and so was some of the cinematography, but being a made for TV movie, that is to be expected. All in all, I would have to say that this was a very decent adaptation of the novel.
