Epic, wondrous and thrilling: The Lost World remains the best sequel in the Jurassic Park series.
Steven Spielberg's sequel to his Syfy classic Jurassic Park not only follows the same formula that fuels the fire of the original movie but has a rhythm of it's own to be it's own film. It's a darker, sleeker film this time around with a mean streak that delivers the goods ten fold yet never forgets it's roots as an intelligent thriller with a lot of heart. Jeff Goldblum once again provides the intelligent and dramatic backbone that drives the story forward while Richard Attenborough provides once again the majestic presence that makes this movie meaningful. Throw in a wonderful and strong turn by Julianne Moore and a strong scene stealing turn by the late great Pete Postlethweite and you have a stronger cast of characters than you had with the original.
Spielberg brings some of his best bag of tricks to this film as well with some of the most show stopping scenes in the series including a falling Trailer scene that has to be seen to believe and to this day, the most scary raptor attack ever put on film. While there are a few viewers who did not like the climax in San Diego, that climax still packs a fun, mean wallop that neither the two sequels that followed (The horrid Jurassic Park 3 and the so so Jurassic World) have top in their entire films.
While Spielberg and his main cast of characters did not return for the next two films in the series, nothing can take away from the sheer fun and excitement that The Lost World gives to the series. You never know, Spielberg could just come back again with his crew to bring the Jurassic Park series back to it's former glory.
