Critic Reviews for Lost Horizon

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

The conjunction of truth and lies hardly seems accidental in a film that sets out to recall a kind of filmmaking now lost, but succeeds only in denting pleasant memories.

At the moment the characters descend into the valley of Shangri-La, the film, in unconscious critical mimicry, goes downhill

Just dull and forgettable, not the so-bad-it's-good camp classic some people insist.

Audience Reviews for Lost Horizon

Classic film, unfairly maligned by critics who attack it based mainly on the fact that its a musical version of the original. It's an almost scene for scene remake and the music (though somewhat dated now), is undeniably catchy. Plays like a film made in the early days of cinema-if you like musicals don't miss it!
