Watch Everything Wrong With The Lost World: Jurassic Park In One Video

The debut of Jurassic Park was an important moment of cinematic history, and the movie stands as a model for all those filmmakers looking capture a newfound sense of wonder. Its sequels thus far, on the other hand, do not, and the first of those movies has Cinema Sins taking aim. Watch the latest episode of the weekly series centering on The Lost World: Jurassic Park below!

Just to remind you, The Lost World is the second Jurassic Park film that focuses on Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm as he travels to Site B, Isla Sorna, where there are even more dinosaurs and where his girlfriend, Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore), is snapping photos and performing research. The folks at Cinema Sins pinpointed a lot of grievances with the film -- about 16 minutes worth to be precise -- taking us through the film's cliched and poorly crafted opening scene with a young Camilla Belle, all the way to the ending where T-Rex is rampaging through San Diego as Asian men ran from the beast screaming. Yep, Cinema Sins was quick to bash that notorious moment. The video takes no prisoners, attacking the lazy dialogue, foreshadowing and plot holes. Critics generally agreed. The Lost World sits at 52% on Rotten Tomatoes with some of the harsher reviews calling it an "obligatory sequel" and "the worst thing Steven Spielberg has made." And the third film didn't fare much better.

Hopefully this won't be the case with Jurassic World. The fourth movie gives new life to the franchise after almost 14 years since Jurassic Park 3 hit theaters. Colin Trevorrow is at the helm, while Spielberg produced. This time around the story heads back to the original island where it all started, Isla Nublar, but the park has been fully functional for quite some time. Every time the park runners introduce a new attraction - typically a bigger, meaner dinosaur - attendance spikes, which is what prompted them to create the first genetically modified hybrid, the Indominus Rex. That's where Owen comes into the picture. The character, played by Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt, is on the island studying raptors and the execs want him to use his skills to bond with Indominus. However, this creature is beyond reason. When it's unleashed on the park, it goes around killing for sport, which is a truly terrifying characteristic of a gargantuan carnivorous creature.

Jurassic World will hit theaters this June 12th. We’ll see how it turns out come premiere time, but, hey, at the very least we can hope it will be better than The Lost World.
