Steven Spielberg directs this sequel to his 1993 blockbuster, 'Jurassic Park'. Four years on from the events at Jurassic Park on the island of Isla Nubar, dinosaurs have bred on the neighbouring site of Isla Sorna. The park's founder, John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), sends in chaos theoretician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to investigate. Malcolm's girlfriend Sarah (Julianne Moore) is already on the island, but they are unaware that a rival expedition is on its way in an attempt to capture the dinosaurs and take them back to the mainland.
In the low tradition of knockoff horror flicks best seen (or not seen) on a drive-in movie screen, Steven Spielberg's sequel to Jurassic Park is a poorly conceived, ill-organised film that lacks story and logic. Screenwriter David Koepp strings along a number of loose ideas while Jeff Goldblum returns as Ian Malcolm, the quirky chaos theoretician who now reluctantly agrees to go to another island where cloned dinosaurs are roaming freely. Along with his girlfriend (Julianne Moore) and daughter, Malcolm has to deal with hunters, environmentalists, and corporate swine who stupidly bring back a big dino to Southern California, where it runs amok, of course. Spielberg doesn't seem to care that the pieces of this project don't add up to a real movie, so he hams it up with big, scary moments (with none of the artfulness of those in Jurassic Park) and smart-aleck visual gags (a yapping dog in a suburb mysteriously disappears when a hungry T-rex stomps by). A complete bust.--Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Included in the four man team are Dr. Ian Malcolm and his girlfriend, Dr. Sarah Harding.
When the team reaches the island, they soon discover the presence of another group of people. This new group however are not there for biological data but instead have something more sinister in mind.
After a series of events, both groups become stranded when all their communication equipment is lost.
It is then that the terror really begins as both groups scramble for their lives....
If ever there was going to be a sequel to a movie, this had to be the one, but the title should have been 'The cool one from Jurassic Park, has his own movie!!'.
And while it's nowhere near as good as the first movie, and even though it has some silly moments, and is a tad overlong, it's still a gripping movie.
The Spielberg magic is still there, it's evident when Moore is laying on the pane of glass and it's cracking, and the grass paths being formed by the Velociraptors in their opening scene.
But obviously the film has many flaws, Vince Vaughn, he's annoying, and then just vanishes before the final act. Goldblum is the star, but it looks like his job here is to say something funny every now and again, moan, and do that thing he did in the original and Independence Day where something happens and he spouts a line (think 'Checkmate').
Postlethwaite is the best thing here, but his subplot is way overlong and completely out of context with the rest of the film.
The final act is good, but doesn't carry the oomph factor we were all expecting.
So all in all it's a fine movie, not the best sequel in the world, but not as bad as the critics make it out to be.
Still, why make the female lead, Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore), a scientist/doctor no less, such a dummy! She makes a speech about not disturbing so much as a blade of grass on the island, "We are here to observe and document, not interact". Oh yeah, so why does she go around patting baby dinosaurs on the head (stegasauras). Then another speech about how the T-Rex parents will defend the area where they took the baby T-Rex and have the most amazing sense of smell. So, what does she do? Continue to wear the jacket with the baby's blood on it and walk through half the island with it on. And yet she seems amazed when the adult male T-Rex finds the camp. Hello??!!
Apart from that, a good popcorn movie.
