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
Part of the promotion for this movie included a website, which visitors could explore to find out facts about the film's production. One page included John Hammond's office. If users found a hidden password they could access Hammond's computer and InGen files. For the user name Hammonj, one of the passwords was Gandhi, a reference to Sir Richard Attenborough having directed Gandhi (1982). See more »
(at around 16 mins) When Eddie Carr is first demonstrating the satellite phone equipment to Dr Malcolm, but can't get it to work. He is seen in the background holding the handset to his ear but has it the wrong way round, with the keypad against his cheek and the earpiece facing away from his ear. Being that Eddie Carr is the 'tech guy' for the expedition it is worrying that he gets this wrong. See more »

Pretty Good- Not as Good as Jurassic Park, not as bad as JP3
Okay, the best Jurassic Park is obviously Jurassic Park. It was the most faithful to the fantastic Michael Critchton books, plus it was well done. As a sequel, The Lost World does just fine. Of course, I'm used to seeing horrible sequels all the time. Jeff Goldblum does a good job reprising his role as Ian Malcolm, and the newcomers of Julianne Moore and Vince Vaughn do well too. The story is a little unbelievable, though. After recently being replaced by his nephew as CEO of InGen, John Hammond(Richard Attenburough) reveals to Ian Malcolm(Goldblum) a site B: A place where dinosaurs run free. He sends him and his girlfriend, Sarah Harding(Moore), technology expert Eddie Carr(Richard Schiff) and photographer Nick Van Owen(Vaughn) to document the dinosaurs, while the official InGen team, led by Roland Tembo(Pete Postlethwaite), tries to capture the T. Rex and transport it to San Diego. As always, there is many bone-crunching deaths, the Special FX are excellent, but the story and plot fall a a bit short. Overall: 7/10
