Men of a certain age (my age) hold this Amicus-produced sci-fi caper from 1975 with affection and as cheap-looking and silly as it undoubtedly is, its still has its pleasures.

Doug McClure plays the one-dimensional hero who overpowers a German U-Boat, only to be transported to a prehistoric land full of plastic T-Rexs and pterodactyls. Terrible dialogue, ropey characterisation and dated special effects don't hinder the guilty enjoyment of this boys' own adventure story.
