Editorial Reviews

In this modern retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fantasy action-adventure classic, a commercial airliner crashes deep in the heart of the Amazon. Now the survivors must face a mysterious and hostile world inhabited by giant scorpions, winged reptiles and a simian beast, standing ten stories tall. The original creature adventure, a must see for fans of Lost, King King and Jurassic Park!

Customer Reviews

"King of the Lost World" which starts like TV series "LOST" has none of them.
Tsuyoshi
Remember that first episode of Lost, when it looked like the plane crash survivors found themselves stranded on some kind of Monster Island?
Daniel Jolley
There really isn't anything I can tell you about this movie that would make you want to see it.

*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

Having just watched the new large screen Peter Jackson remake of King Kong at the theater this past Friday, I was not surprised to find a giant gorilla movie on the shelf at Blockbuster on Saturday. It looked sort of cheesy based on the cover art, which featured a giant gorilla and the word KING in large letters. I stupidly assumed this movie would be centered on a giant gorilla who was the king of his so-called Lost World.

I was quite surprised that this movie was released in 2005; I would have assumed that it had been produced in the early 1990s and shown on the SCI-FI channel after midnight for the last 15 years. "King of the Lost World" is distributed by a company called "The Asylum".

A plane crashes in a remote jungle, presumably in South America, although I'm not sure it was stated as such. There are several survivors despite a large explosion complete with a near mushroom cloud sized fireball. Sadly, the front end of the plane is missing.

Almost immediately we see a woman still strapped in her seat on a piece of wreckage who has just awakened following the crash. Suddenly a giant ape rips her into the air and carries her off. This is sort of where I see the whole "King Kong" aspect of the movie but the part about the girl falling in love with the savage beast never materialized. In fact, I lost track of this woman all together.

Over time, many planes have crashed in the area and the survivors have become some kind of primitive tribe who feed some of the crash victims to flying dragon like monsters as a ritual sacrifice, trying to placate the flying beats? The tribe may be fearful of the flying dragons but they have a much greater fear of the giant gorilla who "brings death" to them.

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.

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.

The SFX are like a video game. The acting is... actually pretty good. The girls where "pants" so short they could be mistaken for a leaf. But, I still love it.

The story basically goes like this: An airplane crashes in the Amazon jungle and a group of survivors go to look for a radio to call for help. But on the way they encounter such beasts as oversized spiders, gigantic scorpions, man-eating vines, unforgiving natives, and a simian beast that stands almost ten stories tall that strangely resembles King Kong. (A coincidence? I think not.)

Although some may be fooled by the amazing graphics on the cover (And I admit they look cooler than the ones on King Kong,) don't expect the same thing during the movie. But even so, it is very enjoyable to watch, and sometimes they can even trick you into thinking it does look real, and that you are watching some sort of video game. And, I'll admit, I do like the SFX, especially considering the budget. These graphices do rival those in other 'popcorn' movies and it suits the movie well.

The acting was very well done and I am actually surprised. B Movies usually have atrocious acting, but I still like it anyway. But, at the beginning, when that girl is injured, she almost seems to be laughing. (Those who have seent he movie will know what I mean.)

A great addition to the disc is that they actually include a very signifigant amount of SPECIAL FEATURES. I am not kidding. Usually I find B movies have no special features, but this disc has a BEHIND THE SCENES FEATURETTE, AN SFX FEATURETTE (Which I laughed through. Again, those who have seen the movie will know what FX are like.) A BLOOPER REEL, and a good amount of TRAILERS. (All the films, of course, are from TheAsylum.
