Storyline

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 Eric

Trivia

(at around 1h 23 mins) When the male and female Tyrannosauruses attack the camp, Malcolm unsuccessfully tries telling the mercenaries, "don't move, don't run," which is similar to what Grant said to him in Jurassic Park (1993) about how the T. Rex's "vision is based on movement." See more »

Goofs

(at around 45 mins) In the shot with the triceratops head plunging through the tent, you can see the cameraman who filmed Ludlow's televised speech flying up out of frame without the dinosaur touching him. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Great movie, annoying kid
9 August 2020 | by ophidiancartomancySee all my reviews

I'm not sure why it was so necessary to include yet-another-screeching sub -teen, but it really has gotten old. Other than the pointlessness of that, the rest of the film is pretty well done.
