Storyline

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 Bree Pearson

Trivia

While director William A. Graham saw thousands of hopefuls at open auditions during a nationwide talent search before deciding on Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause', producer Peter Bogart was finalizing the countless details mandated by shooting a movie on an island location that is only accessible by a weekly ferry and a tiny grass landing strip for small planes.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Sarah Hargrave: I may be young, captain, but I have spent three years in a climate of fearsome heat, with insects as big as rats and rats as big as cats! I can certainly deal with deck and down with fever!

Not As Good
23 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

I loved the original version, well, the 1980 original version, and I found this to be basically a copy which wanted to cash in on the success of the first. The theme was basically the same, with unnecessary violence added in.
