Okay beginning and middle, but good ending

  • Jul 22, 2007
I read Doyle's "The Lost World" when in college, and have been waiting for a full-length movie adaptation of it since then. Finally, this adaptation came out, first on cable, and then on DVD. Seeing it twice, I was disappointed both times. First, the movie plot is nowhere near the book's plot. Extra characters have been included that should not have been, probably out of political correctness. Some of the special effects also looked kind of fake; for example some of the dinosaurs moved awkwardly. The only memorable part of the movie was in the end when Bob Hoskin's character lies to his scientific peers after realizing what they would do to his Lost World. I wonder how many natural explorers have done similar things in their careers? Overall, the book is more enjoyable than the movie.
