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.

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...

This summer's blockbuster to beat is beach reading for the big screen, and why should it be otherwise?

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.

Almost awesome in its up-close encounter with wild and very dangerous dinosaurs.

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.

Many people will find much to divert them in The Lost World, and not worry whether or not it falls short of Jurassic Park.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park is one of those rare sequels that is better than the original.

That you get what you want, even as you're set up to want it, makes the film work.

The Lost World feels like less of a movie than it does a carnival ride -- all precipitous highs and nerve-jangling lows.
