FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • After Nicholas, Max, and Shannon are thrown into the cage, Max's line "A god who lives in an airplane, huh?" is clearly dubbed.  Max's lip movements don't match the words. 

    • It's unusual that the natives could understand English, but could not speak English at all.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Otagi: (to Bull) Give us a glass so that he join me in a drink.
      Inspector: You must be crazy. I'd sooner die than drink with you!
      Otagi: That's exactly what I had in mind.

    • Jim: Nicholas and Shannon just arrived. We could be in more trouble than we bargained for,
      Max: Jim, some of these guys haven't seen a woman in six months!
      Jim: You better keep Shannon out of this.

    • Max: What the hell are you playing at?
      Regehr: Being a god. I thought you might have figured that out.
      Shannon: Why?
      Regehr: Call it a golden opportunity. I started out a geologist, but then I got promoted.

    • Regehr: And what happens when those volcanologists don't return to their base?
      Otagi: This is the jungle, Regehr. People get lost, people die. The jungle devours them without a trace.

    • Nicholas: The bridge between the Stone Age and the 20th Century is gone.
      Shannon: Hopefully it'll stay that way.
      Jim: Unspoiled by man. Now that really would be progress.
