I hadn't seen this movie for a few years so I was just going off of some scenes that I had remembered. That's what this movie is good for a cool scene here and there. This Jurassic Park film didn't give much for the viewer to care about. We were suddenly tossed into a world where Malcolm (the suave playboy that was hitting on Grant's woman in the first JP) is going steady with Julianne Moore, and has a bi-racial daughter. Then it all moves so quickly with him being coaxed into visiting a second...yes, a second site where the dinosaurs were being kept. Besides certain cool scenes this movie was lacking a good writer, someone that could have worked better on 1) the characters and 2) the concept. I am a fan of the first Jurassic Park so it's disappointing that The Lost World could not follow up the first properly. The re-watch value is pretty decent considering this is like the third time I've seen the movie since it's release. But the viewings are spaced apart drastically to the point where it's failings seem to have faded in my mind. But once you watch it, you realize that it's not as good as the first movie, and that it's kind of lame. It's a disappointment to a true movie fan. But some viewers may enjoy it simply for the dinosaur action.
