Review
Not undeterred but only underrated, THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK was an incredible film, though not much better than the first instalment (click here). This is due to the fact that it has better CGI technology used and more dinosaurs. With more action, the story-line was able to further develop from the first movie, setting of the second in the first half is in the jungle terrain and the second half is in an urban city environment. The coolest parts of the movie relate to the T-Rex who stumbles upon a neighbourhood and guess what he's doing! 

THE LOST WORLD is a worthy sequel which over meets the standards of the original hit.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
