Review by David Wilcock
3½ stars out of 4

So we finally get the long anticipated sequel to Jurrasic Park. And it's better than the orinigal. It's far more suspenseful, darker and scarier than the first one, and also has some very good set pieces. But, of course, the plot and writing is not really up to par. But the directing is excellent.

The film starts with a horrifying incident with a young girl, and then Sir Richard Attenbourough saying that there is a second island. Goldblum and his girlfriend, plus another guy and a photgrapher go over, to see how it's going. Goldblums daughter smuggles onto the boat which is taking them, so she ends up there aswell.

At the island, after the oohing and aahing at the dinosaurs, they get down to buisness. But then, evil agents from InGen come to the island, led by Pete, who want to capture the dinosaurs and take them back to a theme park in San Diego (which Hammond started but never finished) So Goldblum and Co fight to save the dinos.

There are some incredible set pieces in the film. One, involving a trailer hanging over a cliff, is way too long, but is directed so well by Speilberg, that you have no choice but to enjoy it. Also, the Raptor scene in the long grass is a excellent piece of filmaking. To be honest, many of the scenes are better than the ones in Jurrasic Park. Sure, the plot has wholes big enough for a T-Rex to walk through, but it IS great fun (much like Batman and Robin) If you liked the original, you're going to love this. Highly recommended
