One of my childhood favorites. I'm still looking forward on watching it again.
20 February 2007 | by vip_ebriegaSee all my reviews

My Take: Decent, violent and rarely-seen adaptation.

I do have the book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but I haven't read it yet. I was only familiar with the characters in Doyle's tale when I watched this movie many years ago, when I was a kid. I really loved it as a kid, because I loved Dinosaurs that much back then. I watched this movie a lot of times. There were a lot of reruns of this movie back then. Sure, it was not "Jurassic Park", but I still loved it.

I know many of you are confused due to the numerous remakes of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic story in the 90's, that you mistake this movie from something else. As for me, I only know two "Lost World" movies. This and Steven Spielberg's hit sequel to "Jurassic Park". Both are good films. Even though the film delivers a lot of flaws and errors in paleontology or in the novel, I'm still looking forward on watching it again. I've forgotten a lot about it when I last watched it as a kid. So I'm looking forward for another rerun, or better yet, a video copy of my own.

TV movie rating: *** out of 5.
