The highly-anticipated sequel to one of the all-time great box office hits, this film delivers what the audience wants. Excitement and action. Jeff Goldblum returns as wise-cracking chaos theorist Ian Malcolm, who joins a new expedition to a new island of genetically engineered dinosaurs. It seems that there was a second intended Jurassic Park, but it never got off the ground and the dinosaurs were left to roam free on the island. What Goldblum and company find there is a lot more dinos than there were in the first film.

Steven Spielberg's sequel is not better than the first film, mainly because the opening set-up scenes are a little disappointing. However, the film really gets rolling when it continues the story on the island, and you encounter two T. Rex, a cartload of Raptors and a new group of small scavenger dinos, called "Compy's". The story isn't bad, but it's mostly setting the characters (and the audience) up for the wild ride to come. The special effects are more seamless than in the first film. Plus, there are quite a few surprises along the way, something you'd never expect from a sequel that's at risk of being predictable.

My Rating = Four Stars
