Four years have passed since the disaster at Jurassic Park; after a pack of Compsognathus attack a little girl on the beaches of Isla Sorna, the resulting lawsuit filed against InGen ends with John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) being booted out from his position as CEO of InGen .
John Hammond summons chaos theorist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to his home with some startling information: InGen has a second island, named Isla Sorna, where the original research was performed, and the animals were manufactured. A hurricane forced an evacuation of the island, and the dinosaurs were released into the wild at the last minute, in order to mature and thrive in their own separate environment.
It seems the dinosaurs on the second island are alive and well and even breeding; and Hammond wants Malcolm to observe and document the reptiles before Hammond's financiers can get to them. Having had a change of heart, Hammond is trying to prevent this: if he gathers a team of experts to document the dinosaurs in their new habitat, he may just rally enough public support to save the ancient animals from life in captivity.
Malcolm initially refuses, but then learns that his girlfriend, paleontologist Sarah Harding, is already on the island by herself. He then reluctantly agrees to go in an attempt to rescue Sarah.

1.5 stars – Barely Watchable
OMG. I really don’t know why I did this to myself.
I recently watched Jurassic World and Jurassic Park and decided “I know, let’s watch the rest of the series!”
Never have worse words been uttered.
Man. Jurassic Park: The Lost World is a terrible, terrible movie. I wanted to bail several times while watching and I should have.
The plot was thin – no, terrible and terribly thin. The acting was mostly just acceptable. It took forever to start the action. The dinosaurs mostly looked like puppets and the ending was just why?!.
All in all, it was a just a terrible movie that I really disliked.
