Terra Nova is clearly a second-tier, hand-me-down bullshit adventure fantasy casserole using elements from Avatar, Jurassic Park and Lost. The authoritative drill-sergeant tone used by Stephen Lang as he says “Welcome to Terra Nova, folks!” has a familiar ring.

And exec produced by Stephen Spielberg? I’ve explained this before but here goes again: You can’t direct Tintin and exec produce Terra Nova and be that kind of guy (you know what I mean) and expect to make the right kind of film about Abraham Lincoln.
