At the beginning of the film an on-screen graphic identifies the location as "Roanoke Island, Virginia". Although today the island is part of North Carolina, in 1580, the colony was in what was then Virginia, named in honor of the reigning British monarch, Queen Elizabeth I. The only child to have been born there, Virginia Dare, was also named for the place she was born. See more »
Lost Colony: The Legend of Roanoke did actually look as though it would be somewhat tolerable. And while nothing great, considering SyFy's dubious track-record it is. This is by far one of the better-looking SyFy projects, with stunning locations and scenery and photography that does look as though care went into it instead of the usual dull, slapdash kind. The score is decent, not too over-bearing or sluggish and the acting shows a sense of spirit and an effort to not be too bland or overdone. However, while I appreciated the moral and philosophical aspects, the script could have done with being more thoughtful and less cheesy and stilted, the story suffers from a lack of atmosphere and poorly choreographed and less-than-thrilling battles and while the characters are less stereotypical than characters in other SyFy movies(the creature and disaster movies of theirs are the worst when it comes to this) not much is done to make them interesting to let us relate to them.
Overall, not bad but not desperately good either, just average. 5/10 Bethany Cox
