The Lost World: Jurassic Park II is a sequel to Jurassic Park which is based on a Michael Crichton book of the same name (The Lost World: Jurassic Park II).

This sequel is not as good as the first and also not as exciting, the whole dinosaur in the city (Godzilla kind), saving your love from an expedition that could be her last was kind of a bore but like the first the sequel doesn’t fail to fill you up with new knowledge about speculated behaviors dinosaur.

This science fiction adventure film was directed by Steven Spielberg and prompted the first time Crichton will write a sequel to a book. The movie was made darker than that of the first and it was also a box office success, grossing $618 million worldwide, although the movie itself was not of critical acclaim on the bases mostly because fans had to wait 4 years to see this, and though it did have an excellent CGI, the story was not as thrilling as the first, and the cast was not as engaging.

The movie plot didn’t have Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) in it at all, even the park genius John Hammond and his grandchildren Lex and Tim, just appeared briefly in the beginning of the movie.

The movie focuses on Jeff Goldblum who played Dr. Ian Malcolm the Chaos theorist.

The film picks up four years after the events of Jurassic Park, and Dr. Ian has gone everywhere telling everybody who cares to know about what he faced in Jurassic Park. John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) who had lost control of InGen to his nephew, Peter Ludlow (Arliss Howard), invited Malcolm to his home to ask him to escort a team to a place called Site B.

John explained to Malcolm that the island of Isla Sorna, also known as "Site B", is the island where the dinosaurs were initially engineered and nurtured for a few months, before being moved to the location of the park.

He further explained that after the Jurassic Park incident, a hurricane destroyed the containment facilities on Isla Sorna, and the dinosaurs have been living free in the wild ever since, and they have found a way to survive.

Malcolm initially refuses thinking back on the events and his near survival from the park four years ago, but agrees after learning that his girlfriend, paleontologist Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore), is part of the team and is already there at the island.

So we are back with the dinosaurs again with only Malcolm having an idea of what they are capable of.

There were scenes in the movie where the camera angles were well positioned, but the movie screenplay lapsed in thrills.

Other than the movie not being so a good sequel, many elements from the original Jurassic Park novel that was not in the first film were used here.
