The title of the novel was simply "The Lost World", with the cover showing the familiar Jurassic Park logo to establish it as a sequel. However, the studio feared that the public might confuse it with the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle classic of the same title (the title and many plot elements were indeed deliberate references by Michael Crichton), and originally considered naming the film "The Lost Island". In the end, the novel's title was kept, but "Jurassic Park" was appended to solidify the sequel connection. See more »
At the end of the waterfall scene after the T-Rex leaves, Ian joins Nick, Sarah, and Kelly inside the waterfall yet the next time they are seen, they are already dry with little to no explanation as to how that happened so quickly. See more »
I saw this in a theater in 1997 and I thought I liked it. I just saw it again on DVD last night, and I now I know I do. What I can't figure out is why so many people think it's so horrible. After seeing JP III a few weeks ago, I still think The Lost World is better. Of course the original is the best, but The Lost World is packed with suspense, witty dialogue (especially Goldblum's), and of course, the usual great looking dinosaurs. There are a few things I don't like, the gymnastics routine towards the end being at the top of the list. But other than that and a few silly lines, this movie is almost as thrilling as the first. Personally, I don't care if the plot of this one is weak. I've never even really given that any thought. The first 100 minutes or so are loaded with excitement, then the finale with the T-Rex in the city is, if you ask me, played mostly for laughs. Yes it's like Godzilla, and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, but that's the point. It's like those movies but with 21st century (almost) special effects. And it's just plain fun to see this dinosaur stomping through the suburbs, drinking from a swimming pool and, wreaking havoc at gas station minimart. I think if you don't take the San Diego scenes too seriously, and look at it as Spielberg's way of paying homage to *and* poking fun at the Godzilla-type movies, you can appreciate this portion of the movie. Then to wrap it all up with Bernard Shaw from CNN, and an obvious open door to a sequel - what more could you ask for? Well, maybe a better plot as some people seem to be saying, but I think this is a great popcorn movie and it works for me.
