The Island Of Dr. Moreau (1977) Review


OK
Hopelessly dated revision of the H.G. Wells book and 1930s film The Island of Lost Souls, Burt Lancaster makes an impressive Moreau but the rest of the film feels silly. Moreau's half-man, half-animal experiments were groundbreaking in the 1970s, but are terribly hokey today. The plot involves far too many wrestling-with-tigers scenes and you-think-you-killed-him-but-you-didn't "twists" -- enough of both to push this Moreau into kitschville.
