While the general theme of this film resembles "The Blue Lagoon" (the film for which this is a sequel), the basic plot is quite different. We open the film with a ship finding the craft with our original characters in it, Richard and Emmeline dead and Paddy alive. Established in the first film, the only word Paddy ever says is "Richard", so the crew assumes Richard is the infant's name. Taken in by Sarah, a widow with an infant baby girl Lilli, Richard (Paddy) is cared for in a return to civilization. Struck by cholera, the crew of the ship start to die and the captain sets Sarah, Richard, Lilli and a healthy crew member on a lifeboat in an attempt to preserve their lives. With water and food running short, the crew member escorting Sarah and the children becomes dangerous, so Sarah takes the only course of action she feels suitable to preserve the children: she strikes him and throws him overboard. Taking control of the small craft, she eventually guides them back to the island of ... Written by
While filming was indeed difficult at first, idyllic conditions prevailed as soon as Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause began their scenes. As if on schedule, breathtaking seas of deepest blue and endless azure skies highlighted the filmmaking activity on an expansive white sandy beach outside the village of Lavena. Maravu Beach, Bouma Falls, which cascades into a beautiful pool, and a swamp at Vunitai'awau, also proved to be spectacular locations as filming progressed. A climactic sequence was filmed in a shark channel at Vurevure by underwater photographers Ron Taylor and Valerie Taylor, who at the time were considered by many to be the foremost underwater photographers in the world.

Richard continually beats the shark swimming across the reef. A shark can swim from between 25-45mph whereas most Olympic swimmers can only swim about 5mph. He would stand no chance. See more »
Capt. Jacob Hilliard:
We appreciate your hospitality and hope you will offer us the opportunity to repay you.
You can. You can take us with you back to civilization...
I should think it must be ever so boring here.
What is the meaning of boring.
Well boring's when... you have nothing whatever to do. So you're bored, like you must be here.
No. We're never bored!

leave expectations at the door and you'll enjoy!!!!
going into this movie, i didn't have expectations of great acting or a phenomenal script. i had never even heard of it or The Blue Lagoon until a few weeks ago because people only talk about the really great movies.
i judge movies on how they make me feel deep down. this wasn't perfect but if you leave all your expectations at the door, you'd be surprised how much truth is there.
it lets you enjoy innocence. i think that's why i could even accept the fact that the performances weren't absolutely perfect. children aren't supposed to be perfect, but they do have one thing over most adults, a child of innocence will love unconditionally despite all the confusion that can be found in the world-even on an deserted island. i think the people who created this movie were able to capture that part of life and so i have to approve.
i watched The Blue Lagoon before this one and have to say, even though this one is less explicit, it's even more enjoyable. both are worth attention though.
however, neither should be viewed by young children; they were given their ratings for a reason.
