Trivia

Although supposedly based upon a book by Edgar Rice Burroughs, there is no relationship whatsoever between the book and the plot of this movie. One wonders if the writers even read the Cliffs Notes. See more »

Goofs

One of the German crewmen by himself carries a drum of either crude oil or diesel fuel. Depending on the exact contents and barrel type, this would weigh a minimum of over 300 pounds, and possibly over 400 pounds. See more »

I would prefer to be eaten by a dinosaur than watch 1 minute of this movie!
10 August 2009 | by chris dedrickSee all my reviews

When i think back at the 27 minutes of my life wasted on this movie....so many words come to mind....

  • Disappointment - Disbelief - Amazement - Shock


....Someone financed and paid for this movie! What were they thinking? Who read the script and agreed to make this? If you have a limited budget, go out and make Blaire Witch 3, don't attempt to make a CGI extravaganza!!

I love the post by Mark Ross. In my 27 minutes of viewing time, i did love the fact that the guy who fell off the cliff was covered in blood before he even hit the ground!

For those who don't want to sit through the whole 27 minutes, just check out the first 5. Watch the people on board look amazed as they wake up from the storm to blue skies and calm oceans. Watch their faces as they scour the waterline for a small slice of hope before one cries out...there is land!! As the camera pans in on their profile as they talk, the island keeps moving. In one shot it is over their left shoulder, and then in the next it is over their right.

I guess if you can believe that it has dinosaurs on it, you can also believe in an island that continually hops all over the place. The icing on the cake is the next shot has the boat about 30 meters from the island bearing down on them. I guess their engine was broken and it is easier for things to just happen rather than trying to explain them with some type of 'story line'.

Ahhhh a lot can happen in 27 minutes. Watching any part of this movie isn't a wise use of it.
