Movie Reviews

King of the Lost World
William S. Vinikour | 12/31/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"See A.D. Lawlor's review for a plot synopsis. Having first read guestar57's glowing 5 star review, coupled with the fact that Bruce Boxleitner (one of my favorite TV actors) was one of the stars, lead me to buy this film on DVD. Having a love for most fantasy, monster and horror films for over 50 years, my bottom line review of this film is: I literally threw out the DVD after watching the film (rather than make someone else suffer by buying it used)! The derivative plot and horrible CGI make this the reigning king of the worst lost world movies ever made."
Oh, No ... This Is NO King Kong, NO Lost World
Tsuyoshi | Kyoto, Japan | 02/19/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"If you're looking for some adventure story with thrilling actions and well-drawn characters like Conan Doyle's classic novel (by which this film is purportedly inspired, judging from its title), avoid this one. "King of the Lost World" which starts like TV series "LOST" has none of them. Probably one episode from the hit TV series would be more entertaining than this 88 minute film.

The film's story has little to do with Doyle's "Lost World." The film re-uses the names of the novel's principal characters - Challenger, Summerlee, Malone and Roxton - but that's about it. In this updated version, Challenger (Bruce Boxleitner) becomes a military-type hero with a secret briefcase and he and other survivors of the airplane crush in the Amazon wander in the jungle to search an airborne radio. (The airplane crushes in the beach, but they dare to travel deep into the land while clearly they don't need to.. But let's not talk about it.)

If you expect something like `so-bad-so-good' kind of campy fun, like watching Ed Wood films, you will be disappointed. The film (made by The Asylum which gave us such films as "Way of the Vampire" and "Frankenstein Reborn") is just a run-of-the-mill low-budget action film with bland direction and awful acting from the supporting actors. Bruce Boxleitner is not bad, and Steve Railsback appears as cameo, but Railsback's role is too small, actually almost pointless in the story.

I almost forgot to write about the giant gorilla you might be seeing in the DVD cover. The CGI-created gorilla appears which provides some unintentional fun. Perhaps filmmakers and actors know its cheesiness. There are some nice tongue-in-cheek moments, but they are too brief and come too late."
ZERO STARS OUT OF FIVE!

"This movie is atrocious. The acting is bad, the plot is bad, but the thing I cant forgive is the absence of the gorilla. I love killer gorilla movies so much, I recorded it on my dvr. But when watching it, I found the absence of the gorilla dissapointing. And, when in the 15 minutes the gorilla appears, it looks horrible. I've seen and played video games from 1999 with better graphics. I instantly deleted the film, but the King of the lost world will forever leave a stench on the memory drive of my dvr. The king is the loser in this film which trys to be King Kong and the Lost World at the same time. Dont ever but this movie."
