Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A quietly durable interpretation of Wells' classic, and a big step up from the Brando version."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Laughable remake of Island of Lost Souls."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"goofy but entertaining"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
