Our Score
In this OK sequel to The Land That Time Forgot, missing explorer Doug McClure is traced to an exotic prison on the lost island of Caprona. It's not as trashy as the original Edgar Rice Burroughs adventure, but director Kevin Connor's constipated confection still features ludicrous mechanised dinosaurs and hopeless acting from an interesting cast - John Wayne's son Patrick and Dave Prowse (the original body of Darth Vader). A few shots, composed around celebrated fantasy illustrations, compensate for all the film's shortcomings.

Summary

An explorer braves encounters with dinosaurs as he leads an expedition to the mysterious island prehistoric island to rescue his marooned naval officer friend from a forgotten civilisation. Fantasy adventure sequel to The Land that Time Forgot, starring Patrick Wayne, Doug McClure and Sarah Douglas.
