Frankly speaking, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough save this movie. With that said, this movie will be lousy even for a B-movie. The highlight is everyone getting eaten because they're all idiots.

One of the worst films I've ever seen. I was like a deer in the headlights, kept watching against all my instincts just to see if it could be any worse... and it was, over and over.

The original was better, but this one is ok. More dinos is a plus!

Not as good as the original, I was indifferent to it the first that I watched it, the second time, though, it was better, I guess I just understood it more on the 2nd viewing. I still don't understand why the crew of the ship was "everywhere". How did they get torn to bits if the Tyrannosaurus was below deck the whole time?
Jeff Goldblum's character changes in this movie, I guess rampaging dinosaurs really change a guy. Oh, and his friend is torn into two pieces by the T-Rex mom and dad, upper torso from legs. :P

What you have here is a poorly written film script with a few decent actors. The plot is completely idiotic and forced a bad headache on me. The lines of the script infused with the action and direction of the plot was very low brow and utterly stupid. I had to stop the video midway and remove the disk. A sheer waste of time and film. I was constantly angered by the stupidity of the characters' behaviors and poor judgments and was very disappointed.

If you were upset by the trophy hunting of Cecil the lion in southern Africa in 2015 then you will appreciate this sci-fi movie that pits commercial interests that want to profit from dinosaur hunting and zoos against conservationists and wildlife activists. But at its heart this sequel movie is mainly about more people being eaten, crushed, and chased by prehistoric beasts. As usual the U.S. Marines come to the rescue (which is great for recruiting).

I really like this movie. It is a little more violent than the first, but it continues with the theme (for the most part) that anyone who dies either deserved it, wasn't a major character, or died heroically so you're not sad. I think the introduction of new dinosaur species was amazing. There are also some excellent and at times hilarious sequences involving a large carnivore loose on the mainland. There is one major plothole, however, so be warned that the story is not as seamless and believable as the first one. There is more dino action! And it's awesome!

I like this one the best out of the three in the series. Just good clean fun!

Some of the characters and more of the dinosaurs from the first film. The character development continues from the first film while introducing a new group of dinosaur exploiters.

Steven Spielberg appears briefly in the rear view mirror of the car driven by Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum).

During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: A dude is ripped in half, though nice bone separation sound effects. :)

When an ailing John Hammond is forced to sign ownership of InGen over to his greedy and unscrupulous nephew, Hammond desperately enlists the help of Ian Malcolm, nature photographer Nick van Owen, field expert Eddie Carr, and Ian's wildlife expert girlfriend Sarah to document the dinosaurs in their natural habitat. He hope's that the documentation of the dinosaurs as animals will awaken the public to say that Isla Sorna (InGen's base of operations where the bred the dinosaurs, it turns out Isla Nublar was only the theme park) should be declared a dinosaur preserve, keeping that lost world from "being found and pillaged." As expected, things don't go quite as expected for a team of naturalists on a dinosaur study, Ian's daughter stows away, a rival team is brought in by the new InGen owner, a T Rex discovers their presence...let's just say things go downhill and in some cases down a T Rex's throat fast. In the early chaos, the communication equipment is smashed, and the groups must unite and make their way across the raptor nesting grounds to the radio at the abandoned park.

Before time runs out and the boat leaves, meaning they will be stranded forever!

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Oh, yeah. Oooh, ahhh, that's how it always starts. Then later there's running and um, screaming.
