David Parkinson Radio Times Once the rescue party finally discovers the rocket downed in the depths of the jungle, the stop-motion apatosaurus and angry triceratops that pitch up prove worth the wait. Rated: 3/5 Sep 29, 2023 Full Review TV Guide An American rocket ship crashes on a Pacific island where the dinosaurs still roam. Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 26, 2013 Full Review Mark Bourne Well, one positive thing might have come from this cheapie 1950s sci-fi flick. It's the births that resulted from backseat couplings when it played the drive-in circuit.

Audience Member Nice see old friends, Sid Melton (Green Acres), Whit Bissell (used be in Everything) Cesar Romero and Hugh Beaumont (father Beaver). Dialogue try be snappy. Plenty Gumby dinosaur! Mostly stinky movie but conclusion exciting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Another leaden B-movie ripping off every Lost World adaptation you've ever seen, and taking forever to do it. The usual soundstage jungles and stock footage and Cesar Romero trying his damnedest to elevate the banal script. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review martin a I loved this film, yes it was done on a cheap budget and some of the scenes could have been cut shorter such as the mountain climb, but it was really enjoyable with a great cast Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A team consisting of military personnel and scientists crashes on an uncharted South Pacific Island whilst on a rescue mission for a downed atomic rocket. They meet a jungle goddess who points them in the direction of the wayward rocket. In order to reach it, the the group follows a treacherous path as they climb a lot of rocks to the top of a plateau only to be met with (not carnivorous, yet stop-motion) dinosaurs. Dinos 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring movie, Average MST3K episode. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Basically a rip off to Journey to the Centre of the Earth scenario. There's really nothing to see but some low budget schlock. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
