The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)

Genre: Science-fiction/Action/Adventure/Thriller
Starring: Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Vince Vaughn, Pete Postlethwaite, Arliss Howard, Richard Attenborough, Vanessa Lee Chester, Richard Schiff
In a direct continuation to where the last movie left off, the idea of Jurassic Park turned out to be a disaster and John Hammond (Attenborough) has lost everything he had. His nephew, Peter (Howard) is now in control of his company and intends to capture the animals and bring them back to San Diego and put them up in a zoo. Hammond wants to make for all the wrong that he has done and wishes to document the animals in their natural habitat and wishes to rally support from world over. In order to do this, he has approached Dr. Sarah Harding (Moore) a paleontologist, Nick Van Owen (Vaughn) a documentary expert, Eddie Carr (Schiff) a field equipment expert and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Goldblum) a mathematician. Having been a part of the previous disaster, Ian believes that John Hammond is once again doing a mistake by going back to the island and is also furious that his girlfriend, Sarah, is already on the island without informing him. He agrees for the trip, not to help John but to convince the others to come back with him. The earlier movie focuses on the park in itself and how dinosaurs can’t be contained inside one. This movie seems to have no objective on it’s own and simply showcases a lot of humans being attacked by dinosaurs and the ultimate rescue that takes place. With a lack of a clear story line objective, it can get a bit boring by seeing the same T-Rex and Velociraptors as in the previous movie, once again chasing humans down. The movie lacks any form of creativity in terms of dinosaurs, an objective or even the final outcome of the movie. A decent action-thriller but lacks the excitement of the previous movie.
Thumbs up: Great special effects and depiction of dinosaurs
Thumbs down: Repetitive as the previous movie
Rating: 6.4/10
