Goofs

When Ian Malcolm boards the ship after it crashes into the dock, as he is walking across the deck he steps on one of the arms that was severed at the shoulder. Instead of the arm staying on the deck or rising slightly, it pops up almost vertically and almost hits him in his leg. Its obvious that it is a plastic mannequin arm. See more »

Above Average Sequel
12 August 2001 | by FilmCellSee all my reviews

The Lost World: Jurassic Park is an above average sequel. I just saw it for the third time and I will still continue to fight for it. The script (although containing flaws) is a billion times better than its sequel, Jurassic Park 3. When I look back at the three times I've seen it (Theater, VHS, DVD) I saw very few flaws in an overall exciting movie. The biggest flaw is that the "wonder and amazement" were at a low level. This is mainly because we were exposed to it in the first film and it is hard to keep things fresh. Other than that, this film is one of the better sequels ever. Great action and adventure, (3 of 4 stars)
