Critic Reviews for Lost Horizon
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
Lackluster music and cringe-worthy choreography ruin what might otherwise be a 3-star movie. Burt Bacharach, who wrote the music, said the movie nearly ended his career. I can see why. I think it nearly put an end to the movie musical as a genre.
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!
I have loved this movie since my next door neighbor introduced me to it in jr. high. I love the story about Shangri La - and the music is wonderful. One of the best musicals ever even though it often gets panned. Love it love it love it!
