If The Lost World had been a faithful adaptation of the novel, I wonder if it would’ve been an excellent film on par with the first.
In fact, I’ll take it a step further and say BOTH should’ve been closer to the novels.
That being said, I love the original Jurassic Park as is. If I had to rank it against all the sequels, it would be the order they were released. I believe each is worse than the last.
