'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.

Where is the awe? Where is the sense that if dinosaurs really walked the earth, a film about them would be more than a monster movie? Where are the ooohs and ahhhs?

It delivers a few thrills, some nice dinosaur effects, and packed theaters.

Readily the worst thing Steven Spielberg has ever made.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

With the low-angle, out-of-focus, washed-out photography, it looks like Spielberg slapped this thing together on his weekends away from DreamWorks.
| Original Score: 3/5

In short, what you'd expect, and no more.

The fact that the movie is literally dull comes as a surprise, especially with the usually reliable Spielberg at the helm.

Just watching dinosaurs attacking and killing stupid people is not enough.

Been there, done that. Now there's just more of it.

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

Offers less screen rapture for your raptor than its predecessor did, unless your sole priority is dino-mighty effects.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

The Lost World has the vibe of 'obligatory sequel,' just what director Steven Spielberg probably wanted to avoid.

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 a boring, unoriginal and ultimately dreary rehash of Jurassic Park.

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

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.

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.
Josh Larsen

Narratively inept, unconvincingly edited and nearly deficient of suspense...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

If Jurassic Park reminds us of the magic Hollywood is capable of, The Lost World shows us how quickly we get bored.
