    Synopsis


    The Lost World: Jurassic Park
    Just when you'd think that scientists would realize dinosaurs and humans don't mix, along comes The Lost World: Jurassic Park to prove you wrong. In this sequel, John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) summons chaos theorist and onetime colleague Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to his home with some startling information -- while nearly everything at his Jurassic Park had been destroyed, engineers were also operating a second site, where other dinosaurs, resurrected through DNA cloning technology, had been kept in hiding. Hammond has learned the dinosaurs on the second island are alive and well and even breeding; Hammond wants Malcolm to observe and document the reptiles before Hammond's financiers can get to them. Malcolm declares he had enough of the dinosaurs the first time out, but decides to make the trip when he finds out that his girlfriend, paleontologist Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore), is already there. However, Ian and Sarah aren't the only visitors expected on the island; a camera crew led by ecological activist Nick Van Owen (Vince Vaughn) is on the way, as is Roland Tembo (Pete Postlethwaite), a world-class wild game hunter who is supposed to round up the dinosaurs and who hopes to bag a prehistoric trophy for himself in the process. This sequel to Jurassic Park boasted even more impressive special effects than the first film, though the acting and screenplay aren't always at the same level. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Solid Blu-ray for Average Movie

      It's been 18 years since "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" opened in theaters and I STILL don't quite know how I feel about it. It wasn't until I finally saw the 1925 silent film, "The Lost World", that I understood why Spielberg jettisoned Crichton's novel and what he was trying to do instead. It sort of works, I suppose. As for this Blu-ray edition, they've done a terrific job bringing over bonus features from previous DVD editions, including content originally only available in the Jurassic Park Trilogy DVD box set. It's a shame Spielberg doesn't record commentary tracks, because that's about the only thing this Blu-ray could be accused of missing! The inclusion of Digital HD is also handy. I'm less likely to stream this than I am to simply pop in the Blu-ray Disc, but it's nice to have redundancy just the same!

      i wasnt sure what to expect. Tins arent really a good thing for me to collect since they are round and can't stay on my movie shelf unit. but bestbuy's packaging sort of makes up for it. its basically the plastic sleeve that acts like a stand for the tins to be placed in, which will hold them up nicely on your movie shelves. but even still i wouldn't buy a tin casing again. the only reason i did was because it included an ultra violet code so that i can use it with my flixster account which i love. bestbuy, move away from the tins and just continue with steelbook bluray releases. i love those! either way, still very much love this, it was affordable and well made. the bluray/dvd each come in their own plastic sleeve inside the tin.

      Steven Spielberg directed this sequel to Jurassic Park, which also brings back Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm & Richard Attenborough's John Hammond. Four years after the first film, Hammond reveals to Malcolm that a second island (where the dinos were actually created) exists & is now being threatened with industrialization by Hammond's company, now controlled by his unscrupulous nephew (Arliss Howard). Malcolm is reluctant to return to the dinos' den until he learns that his girlfriend (Julianne Moore) has already gone there. Like most sequels, this is pretty routine, but there are some nice action set pieces with even better dinos than the first time around. Goldblum & Moore also make a cute couple.

      Okay movie but it isn't Jurassic Park

      Biggest problem was the radical, nut case animal rights activists portion of the flick. Must put everyone, including ourselves, in danger by releasing a few dinosaurs. Perfectly okay for some humans to die. Must risk all to help a baby T-Rex. So what if a friend gets eaten by parents. Acting was fine, special effects were great, story was basically okay except for the idiotic radicalism. We all know Hollywood likes to be preachy but when they take out the sledgehammer & beat you over the head, movies just don't work as well that way. Good enough but not as good as the other 3.

      Despite what initial critic reviews said about this film, it is definitely one of the stronger sequels in the Jurassic Park franchise. Certainly better than JP3 (that was a disaster) This blu-ray comes jam packed with special features -- both new AND old/recycled docs and featurettes from previous releases. The picture is kinda soft though when compared to JP1 & 2. However, the sound is incredible as it is on all three movies. The best part about this is that it came with Fandango Movie Cash for Jurassic World! Went to see the movie for free. So this practically paid for itself! Awesome!

      This was my favorite of the Jurassic movies! I could care less what anyone at all thinks. The book is my favorite novel of all time also my personal opinion. Anyway, the blu ray transfer is awesome, the sound is terrific especially in the Mommy and Daddy rescue the baby T-Rex scene. I LOVE the new cover art and slipcase matching. Great bonus being the ITUNES hd digital copy oh and the movie is awesome! ;)

      Inferior Sequel, but Still Exciting

      This movie seems to get much hate from fans of the first one, but I find this one to be just as exciting. The set-pieces, while not as memorable as the paddock or kitchen scenes from the first one, are still nail-biting, especially one involving an RV and a cliff. This time we get 2 T-Rexes, which is always welcome, and an awesomely fun rampage through San Diego. Despite some silliness, and some questionable scenes with Malcolm's daughter, this one still comes recommended.

      The sequel to the hugely popular, 'Jurassic Park', this pics up a year later as you discover the second island where they did all the actual genetic work and a race to stop InGen from removing the dinosaurs from the island to bring them to San Diego for a new attraction. Picked this up with Jurassic Park 1 and 3 and Jurassic World for one low price, all in collectible, matching tins. So nice that Best Buy was able to get these like this!
