Editorial Reviews

From Edgar Rice Burroughs, author of the Tarzan series, comes this spectacular tropical adventure! After their boat is capsized in a violent storm, a group of survivors land on a lush, deserted island. But they are not alone...and this is no ordinary island. Prehistoric predators from every era roam the jungles, and castaways from time periods past aren't welcoming visitors. The odds of escaping are slim--if they can survive to see the day!

Customer Reviews

Story Line not too bad but other wise not much to this movie as far as collecting.
Theresa Jean Keiper
A ship out for a tour gets caught up into the Bermuda triangle and lands on an island with CG dinosaurs, others from the past and WWII Germans with a U-Boat.
The Movie Guy
The feature could easily have been more harsh or violent, but things are rather subdued.

I'm giving this four stars because as Asylum Movies go it's one of their best.

However it is not an updated take on the novel The Land That Time Forgot: A Tale of Fort Dinosaur which was disappointing. Whether read as one complete novel or in it's trilogy release As The Land That Time Forgot, The People That Time Forgot and Out of Times Abyss The story of Caprona contains an evolution based mystery and a love story. It is not about time traveling via the Bermuda triangle. This screenplay isn't even loosly based on the previous movies The Land That Time Forgot/The People That Time Forgot which contained FX of mediocre laughable quality. Those however in hindsight at least made an attempt to use the source material. This resembles a low budget attempt at something like Time Spike more than anything in the ERB book.

If you liked what Asylum's Take on Journey to the Center of the Earth , which ironically contained an earth driller right out of Edgar Rice Burroughs' At the Earth's Core (Pellucidar Series) (Bk. 1) , you'll enjoy this.
However their T-Rex is becoming almost as overused as their dragon
Also of note , pun intended, the set up for a The People That Time Forgot sequel using the note in a bottle is appropriate.

Yup, this is a low budget movie with cheesy special effects, but you know what? For a low budget movie with cheesy special effects, it really isn't too bad. Sure some of the stuff that happens is unrealistic, but this movie does not take itself too seriously and is kind of fun. The monsters look fake compared to other movies like Jurassic Park and that mess that Will Farrell put out, but who cares? Just enjoy it. And wow, Timothy Bottoms looks so much like George W. Bush in this movie.

"The Land that Time Forgot" is a suprisingly good Asylum film. It is a fun romp on a tropical island. It has the Bermuda Triangle, dinosaurs, WWII Germans, unresolved plot threads, and a relatively happy ending. The special effects are acceptable, and the actors are having fun. Three stars for being a fun film.

Caveats: Naturally, this movie doesn't have anything to do with Edgar Rice Burroughs; it has more in common with Gilligan's Island. The DVD has two extremely short "Making of" and "Bloopers" reels. The movie has no Commentary feature.

This is the fourth Asylum film that I have watched in the past 72 hours. "The Land that Time Forgot" is the best of the bunch so far.

I'm a big Edgar Rice Burroughs fan and don't usually like movies that change things from the book. My thought is, if the book was good enough for you to want to make a movie of it, why are you changing things? However, though this definitely changed things from the E.R.B. book, I loved it!

It had elements from the book. The Germans and their U-boat were there, but it was more just an island in the Bermuda Triangle with dinosaurs on it. Even so, the story was good. The acting was good and for a low-budget movie the special effects were really good. I have to give kudos to C. Thomas Howell for great directing.

It begins on a small boat in a storm. There are two couples, plus the captain and his mate. The next morning, when the storm is gone, they have no idea where they are. They spot an island and decide to head for it. They drop anchor and all but one head for shore. They soon discover pterodactyls and a t-rex, and upon finding the beach once more, discover the boat is gone. Not long afterwards, they discover they aren't the only people on the island, some of which include Nazi's and a U-boat, stranded during WWII, which for them has only been a year or so..

The only options available on the DVD are "Play" and "Chapters" which is slightly disappointing as I would have loved to see a "Making of". Ah, well. I'm not going to complain about what is there. For the price, it's well worth it.

I rate this four-and-a-half stars out of five, but as that option isn't available, I had to click on five stars. No biggie. This could use a boost to it's rating.

Attention fellow ladies! Please give this film a try. If you can just blot out the Tyrannosaurus Rex ... just ignore him (or them, as the case may be), you'll find this a beautiful story about LOVE, LOSS, and LOYALTY. The film has lush settings, story twists, and, well, yes ... Tyrannosaurus Rex. Just ignore him. He's just a plot technique to provide a "common enemy." You can tell that C. Thomas Howell directed this ... it has his unique stamp of complexity enhanced with good characters and a hint of awe at the process of life, not to mention solid acting for those of us who are not impressed by billion-dollar budgets. My God, even the German Navy delivers characters you start caring about! Whether acting, directing, or both, Howell is one of our better story-tellers. Yeah, I know. I sound like a philosopher with too much time on my hands, but give it a try. This one haunts me ... and will bear many repeats until I think I've seen and understood all it has to tell.
