Due to a recent discovery of specimens of juvenile T. Rexes, it is possible that infant T. Rexes actually had longer skulls, therefore making the infant T. Rex in this movie unrealistic. However, the dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park novels and films were genetically engineered by splicing together DNA from several different sources, as was explained in the first book and movie. Therefore, the appearances of all of the dinosaurs, would be dependent upon their respective genetic make-up. 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 »
Somehow cheesier than the original, but still entertaining!
No matter how cliché the story line gets, or how many suspense sequences that have been done millions of other times in other films appear on screen, you can't deny how much we all love seeing gigantic dinosaurs scare the living daylights out of moviegoers. These ancient and magnificent beasts are brought back to life with the directed craft of no one other than Steven Spielberg, the movie God. With the huge success of "Jurassic Park" in 1993, Spielberg keeps the story going strong with "The Lost World: Jurassic Park." Four years after the failure of Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, John Hammond reveals to Ian Malcolm that there was another island ("Site B") on which dinosaurs were bred before being transported to Isla Nublar. Left alone since the disaster, the dinosaurs have flourished, and Hammond is anxious that the world see them in their "natural" environment before they are exploited. Yes, there are villains trying to exploit dinosaurs. How cruel. We continue to see the scientific approach to balance the epic chase scenes and the terrifying T-Rex sneaking into tents and eating scientists left and right. Sadly, we don't get the same visual effects as we did in 1993. They seem to be a tad less in quality. However, who cares! They're good enough to scare the heck out of us and wrap our minds in a world where even the ridiculous and dimwitted plot of a squeal is still ridiculously entertaining and a joyous thrill ride full of razor sharp teeth and ear-piercing roars.
