A research team is sent to an island eighty-seven miles away from the previous home of Jurassic Park, to document and photograph the now liberated dinosaurs. However, InGen the BioEngineering company has sent another larger team to the same island to catch, sedate, and transport some dinosaurs to San Diego where they will be used in a new Jurassic Park location. But life always finds a way. Will both teams return to the mainland with successful findings? Or will another tragedy occur?Written by
(at around 22 mins) When they find Sarah's "lucky pack" on Isla Sorna and start calling out for her, Nick calls out her full name, "Sarah Harding", to which Ian sarcastically says how many Sarah's are on this island. Ironically, near the end when they're looking for Nick in the worker village (at around 1h 30 mins), Malcolm calls out to him by his full name, "Nick Van Owen". See more »
(at around 1h 40 mins) San Diego's harbor is one of the trickiest in the world to enter as it has a narrow opening and barrier island blocking it from the open ocean. It also has several channels and the Coronado Bridge limiting access to the harbor.
There's no way that an unmanned ship could traverse this harbor and successfully (or even unsuccessfully) dock itself. The crew would have to be alive, alert and aware or the vessel would have run aground or collided with another ship. See more »

The Fox television network's version (aired on November 1st, 1998) includes two scenes not in the theatrical cut (see Trivia section). The first scene is an InGen meeting between Ludlow and InGen representatives, and takes place in between the opening Compy attack sequence and the Hammond scene. It contains exposition about what aftereffects the events of the first film had on InGen, and how Ludlow is taking over control of the company from Hammond. The second is in between the Hammond scene and the mission-prep scene with Eddie Carr. Set in Mombasa, it introduces Roland Tembo and Ajay Sidhu and makes it clear they have a long history working together. Both deleted scenes are included as special features on the DVD and Blu-ray, but are not integrated into the film. See more »
The Lost World: Jurassic Park continues the story of John Hammond as he summons chaos theorist Ian Malcolm to his home with some startling information, while nearly everything at his Jurassic Park had been destroyed, his engineers happened to have a second site, where other dinosaurs were kept in hiding. It seems the dinosaurs on the second island are alive and well and even breeding; and Hammond wants Malcolm to observe and document the reptiles before Hammond's financiers can get to them. Still directed by Steven Spielberg, we are brought a sequel to one of the most iconic films on the 90's, this sequel still brings the fun, humor and as much as you expect, more Dinosaurs. We are still brought the glimmering sight of the animatronics dinosaurs and some CGI ones as well, but Spielberg really took the time to make these reptilians so fundamental and pure. Besides the dinosaurs, Jeff Goldblum is another extravagant aspect of this film, he makes the film so jocular with his corny charisma, he really was the standing point for me in this. The film I will say does suffer from some pretty cringeworthy moments from some nonsensical dialogue and scenes that will make you sigh from incredulity. One reason I'm really grateful with this film is that we get to know more about the characters we come to know and love from the first film, I just love knowing more about characters that come to grow on you and just have a pleasure participating with there time. The action in this really dominates, it makes the storyline shift more to a side of the film that makes it more compelling than you think it'll be, it gives more fun to a story that you wouldn't expect to variate. Even though there isn't much strong tense moments, there are occasions where it can get pretty nerve racking, from malicious destruction from rapid creatures to violent beings, there is still a lot of excitement to take from and have fun with but at least it isn't dispiriting. Overall, The Lost World may not be as perfect as its predecessor but it's still one of the most fun sequels that we have been given in such a long time. We are still brought corny aspects, Jeff Goldblum, Dinosaurs, humor & even amusing action. TLW certainly delivers another roaring experience!
