| Above Average Sequel
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)

Trivia

Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) and Dr. Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore) are in a relationship. This is a contrast to the novel, in which Malcolm and Sarah are former partners who have remained platonic friends (Sarah seeking out Malcolm after the events of Jurassic Park (1993)). In the novel, Kelly isn't Malcolm's daughter, and she goes to the island with her friend R.B. to help find their idol and school professor Dr. Levine. Also, in the novel, Kelly is white, while her friend R.B. is black. The character of Eddie is also a stark contrast to the novel. In the novel, he's a younger man with a full head of dark hair who is killed by the velociraptors.

Goofs

Shortly after Dr. Malcolm discovers that Sarah Harding is on the island. She talks about studying the dinosaurs without any effect whatsoever. Dr. Malcolm states this as impossible due to the "Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle." This principle is related to quantum physics. It has been suggested that the correct principle is the "Hawthorne Effect", which states that a subject group being studied is affected from the simple fact that it is studied. However, the "Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle" includes a theory that the act of measuring something can change the value of whatever you are measuring, which fits into how Dr. Malcolm was talking about Sarah's scientific measurement causing the change in dinosaur behavior, not the kind of environment the dinosaur is in. Also, Dr. Malcolm would be more likely to know the Heisenberg Principle than the Hawthorne because of his line of work in chaos theory.


Crazy Credits

David Koepp is listed as the "unlucky bastard" because he was eaten by the T-Rex. Koepp wrote the screenplay.


Alternate Versions

The 2000 UK DVD double box set release of both the Jurassic Park films featured a number of deleted scenes not featured on any release or test screening beforehand. There are also a number of outtakes unseen before included on both films.
