The Lost World (1960)

Professor Challenger leads an expedition of scientists and adventurers to a remote plateau deep in the Amazonian jungle to verify his claim that dinosaurs still live there. (IMDb)

A diverse adventure film shifting from the wild jungles of the Amazon to the fiery underground lair of a cannibalistic tribe of natives. The sets and effects look good for their time (tarantula aside) and except for a few too many high-pitched screams from St. John, the acting is just as solid. Touches of romance and revenge add depth to an exploration/escape plot that’s exciting aside from a few action scenes that drag on way too long and slow down an otherwise well-paced film. A decent watch.

6.2/10
