Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

There's another island full of genetically created dinosaurs in this exuberantly calculated sequel to Jurassic Park. But while the cloned package does elicit a nagging sense of déjà vu, such feelings never get in the way of the overpowering excitement and spectacular special effects, which are served up in deliciously scary dollops. With Richard Attenborough and Jeff Goldblum on hand once more to test the balance of nature off the coast of Costa Rica, director Steven Spielberg ensures his epic thrill-ride runs smoothly along well-oiled tracks. Even though the final third of the movie, where the T rex rampages through San Diego, seems slightly tacked on, events move at such a breakneck pace there's barely time to think about anything other than screaming in amazement.
