Trivia

The armored creature that attacks McBride and his group in the cave near the end of the film was actually a model of the Late Permian reptile called Scutosaurus. See more »

Goofs

Ben pronounces Ajor's name variously as ah-jor, aa-jor, and ay-jor. He should pronounce it only as he heard her say it (ah-jor), not as Patrick Wayne thought it was from seeing the name in the script. See more »

User Reviews

 
Not entirely believable or realistic but worth watching.
24 October 2004 | by ChuckStraubSee all my reviews

With a plot like this one, it's hard to go wrong. A post WWI expedition sails to the Antarctic to try tofind a lost man in a prehistoric land tucked between the high icy mountains. Prehistoric dinosaurs keep popping up throughout the film. Then there's always the evil tribe of bad guys causing plenty of trouble. I can't forget to mention the scantily clad cave girl. I doubt if prehistoric women ever looked like this. Throw in a volcano and you have an adventure movie called 'The People That Time Forgot'. The characters and situations are not entirely believable or realistic and the dinosaurs could have used more work on them, but all in all, it was a pretty good, fun movie that's worth watching.
