Critics have panned the film for lacking Spielberg's usual "magic" touch, but an awe of sorts persists: nature retains a purity that people have lost.

It's clear right from the word go that The Lost World: Jurassic Park marks a considerable step down from its sublime predecessor...

A serviceable but lackluster sequel that is more focused on excess (more deaths, more action) than it is on its characters.

Narratively inept, unconvincingly edited and nearly deficient of suspense...

A remarkably underrated film that's actually improved with age. The FX are still dazzling, the filmmaking is top notch, and please put Jeff Goldblum in everything!

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.

The movie, at its best, is good fun: deft, scary, engrossing. Yet it's never great fun.

It's a fun ride, but not as nutritional as its predecessor strived to be...

Nastier beasts and mean people in intense sequel.

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?

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.

The Lost World is like painting by numbers -- you get something that looks pretty good, but there's no creativity in getting there.

'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.

If you liked Jurassic Park, you'll probably like this one a little less. What the first film did poorly, this film does worse.

This film is going to sink into well-deserved oblivion.
