The Lost World: Jurassic Park, A Great Sequel

The Lost World isn't as bad as people say it is, it is obviously not better than its predecessor in any way but the sense of more adventure, thrill, action and eventually fun is a great addition to franchise. They did something new, which paid off!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence

Easy watch if your into the series but not the best one!

Easy watch, continues the theme from 1 - we missed the character of Dr Alan - this has been our least favourite having recently watched 1-4 but still good viewing if your into the series.
