Dr. Ian Malcolm: Oh, yeah. Oooh, ahhh, that's how it always starts. Then later there's running and screaming.
"Something Has Survived"
Not nearly as good the second time around for Spielberg and his Jurassic Parks films. Replaced the two annoying kids for one equally annoying girl. Swapped Dern's annoying performance for Moore's annoying performance. Then there's the plot which is nowhere near as exciting as the first. It seems and this is more than likely the case, that Spielberg really didn't care if this movie was good. It was going to make money because of the success of the first one. He was right, of course. The movie made a shit load of money.
Sam Neill is gone and is replaced as the lead character by Goldblum. The acting is worse in this one and the action sequences seem much less suspenseful and satisfying. The movie is saved by a good sequence near the end when the T-Rex runs through the streets of San Diego. There's no denying; that scene was pretty awesome. Other then that though, the movie as a whole was kind of dull. That's the last thing I thought I would be saying about a Spielberg movie.
The Lost World in my opinion is the Spielberg's worst directorial effort. Many would argue for War of The Worlds, but I liked that much more then this poor sequel. The only life in this movie is remembering how good the first one was. Sure, the dinosaurs still look awesome, but the movie needs more than that. We already know the dinosaurs are cool.
I'll probably watch the third one soon out of curiosity. But I definitely won't expect much out of it after this train wreck.
