Goofs

It should be pointed out however that some of the goofs (the mixture of creatures from different eras, the professor turning up at exactly 12.00 in the amazon) are taken direct from the original novel. See more »

User Reviews

Cheaply made but likeable.
9 October 1999 | by Cajun-4See all my reviews

There is something rather endearing about this cheapie production, there is no sex or nudity and any violence or gore is muted, it's obviously made for the family audience.Although low budget it's rather a pleasant looking production.

The acting by the leads is good but some of the natives look as though they would be more at home on urban streets or in a disco than in a jungle, however Nathania Stanford as Malu has a cheeky grin and looks pretty good in a sarong.

The monsters are hokey with no attempt to hide the fact that they are puppets (Jurassic Park this ain't), usually they are more cute than frightening.

All in all not badly done within it's limits.
