I’ve always been fond of silent movies ever since I saw my first Charlie Chaplin short movie as a kid. So going into The Lost World I was excited as little kid, and I was not disappointed.
So the plot resolves around a ridicule professor for claiming that Dinosaurs still roam Earth. He sets out on a dangerous expedition to bring a Dinosaur back and stopped being ridicule. Now for me, I felt the story could’ve been better, I mean it really has nothing interesting for the first 15 minutes. It’s interesting, but it stays the same level of interests for the whole movie, so good being in my case. One scene i’m sure you’ll always remember if you choose watch this movie is when the Brontosaurs is loose on the city causing havoc.
The special effect on the other hand are just magical. I couldn’t believe how entertained I was to see these Dinosaurs move, I know it clearly fake, but there just something so interesting about these type of special effect. I was also actually surprise see so many different species of Dinosaurs in this movie considering the hard work it must have taken to animate these Dinosaurs. The music also is good, it doesn’t always go with the scene, but you won’t mind much.
I’m not sure about you, but I enjoy taking a trip to the past to explore these great movies. Like many silent movies, The Lost World is still a enjoyable movie to this, even the dated special effect adds to this movie greatness.
