With Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Vince Vaughn, Pete Postlethwaite, Arliss Howard, Richard Attenborough
Directed by Steven Spielberg

I expected the sequel to take place on mainland with Pterodactyls flying across the ocean, or something of the sort. What they ended up doing was simply reveal another island, Site B, where the same eco-system was created with genetically bred dinosaurs, as in the first film, and where the dinos were bred and shipped to the main island. And yes, our T-Rex does end up on mainland! Goldblum returns, heading out to this island to find his ex who was doing research. Spielberg managed to enter Michael Crichton's world again without merely rehashing the first film, again offering an enjoyable slice of escapism.
