Readily the worst thing Steven Spielberg has ever made.
| Original Score: 4/10
I never held The Lost World in such high esteem, but I watched it multiple times and always felt it got a bit of a bum rap. After checking it out again fourteen years later, I still feel the same way.
| Original Score: 62/100
It's a fun ride, but not as nutritional as its predecessor strived to be...
Nastier beasts and mean people in intense sequel.
| Original Score: 3/5
The film is essentially a grab bag of sequences tied together by a minimal storyline that allows several abandoned scenes from the first book to reach the screen
This summer's blockbuster to beat is beach reading for the big screen, and why should it be otherwise?
| Original Score: 3/4
The dinosaur creations are even better than those in the first film --- credible, breathtaking and frightening. As for the rest, every department pales by comparison.
More turns out to be less in this lacklustre sequel, though once again the effects are a thrill to behold.
In short, what you'd expect, and no more.
Nothing extinct here, just pure dino-might!
The Lost World is like painting by numbers -- you get something that looks pretty good, but there's no creativity in getting there.
| Original Score: C+
'm certain the fault lies in me, not Spielberg. I'm sure he doesn't care what I think, he still gets to keep the money.
| Original Score: D
If you liked Jurassic Park, you'll probably like this one a little less. What the first film did poorly, this film does worse.
| Original Score: C-
This film is going to sink into well-deserved oblivion.
| Original Score: 2/10
Been there, done that. Now there's just more of it.
| Original Score: 2/4
The story, it must be said, is no great shakes, although it's not half bad by action-movie standards. But the action -- that's why we go see movies like this -- is terrific.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Almost awesome in its up-close encounter with wild and very dangerous dinosaurs.
The Lost World has the vibe of 'obligatory sequel,' just what director Steven Spielberg probably wanted to avoid.
| Original Score: 1/4
Spielberg amply delivers the goods with...The Lost World: Jurassic Park, a beautifully crafted series of nightmarish set pieces with no other goal in mind than to scare and delight the audience.
| Original Score: 4/5
The Lost World is as close to critic-proof as you can get in the movie business.
