22 January 2005 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

For a documentary short, this is quite informative. We are given quality screen time (as in the Making of Jurassic Park) with Steven Spielberg, explaining the conception, the inspirations, the designs, and the execution of these concepts.

Crichton speaks up, and we are treated with some behind the scenes levity featuring Richard Attenborough, and a total and complete documentation of every aspect of the Lost World.

I found this documentary particularly enjoyable in that it explains how American audiences became jaded. We went from, "Can they do the dinosaurs?" to "Yeah, sure you can do dinosaurs. But what can you do ~with~ them?" I found that attitude very refreshing.

While most people found this the weakest installment of this line, this second installment is, by far, my favorite of the run. I, therefore, found this authoritative work to be highly informative and entertaining.

My only gripe? It could've (should've) been longer. 53 minutes just wasn't enough.

It rates a Documentary Scale 9.7/10 from...
