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 »
Perhaps if it didn't follow such a masterpiece, it wouldn't have been such a let-down.
There are moments, as brief as they may be, of genuine entertainment in 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)'. Flashes of the creative brilliance behind the lens occasionally seep onto the screen, and it is in these sequences that the picture finds its footing as an incredibly inconsistent, at times confusingly so, follow-up to one of cinema's greatest achievements. It does manage to make its own mark on the genre and even deconstruct the formula that would go on to form the basis of every entry in the franchise - including itself, despite its best efforts - while also never even remotely reaching the heights of its predecessor. In-between its select moments of true suspense, frustratingly frenzied action and generally enjoyable moments centred around dinosaur danger is an uneven and, at times, dull film full of bizarre plot-points and an unnecessary third-act that straight-up shatters all credibility (or perhaps even good-will) built up before it. It's all done with the right intentions, though. This, along with its continued technical prowess, actually makes the final result all the more disappointing. Perhaps if it didn't follow such a masterpiece, it wouldn't have been such a let-down. 6/10
