" Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, November 6, 1997 AA1 [] [] ! Jean Buckingham will i Jean roles upcoming which will: be Paul Dilla will years since But about this back to the footligl the auditions. ers of being the driving Player_ 's__ Edge Gaming in Pahrump "The Lost World" lizard winning sequel by Barney Basin PVG Reviewer What do you do with over a million dollars of surplus dinosaurs? Wrong reptile-breath, brono-burgers is not a viable option. You do what all studios do, you make a sequel. As with most sequels, the story line in "The Lost World" is less than it was in "Jurassic Park," but such is the fate of sequels because the element of surprise is gone. It's a forgone conclusion, you realize before the FBI warning, that these large leaping lizards are going to eat everything in sight. This leads to a very popular game, figuring out which player is going to become the next dino-snack. The first three quarters of the film finds modern man battling ancient artifacts on their own turf. In the last quarter of this cinema tale, we find T-Rex has come to San Diego, and joining the marines is not on his agenda. Of course he might be looking for a few good men, it's been hours since lunch time. Wait a minute, monsters on the rampage in metropolis, shades of Godzilla, King Kong, Ding Dong, and Bing Bong. Tag line to this film is something has survived. What has survived is the Japanese monster horror film breed. There are some human members in this cast like Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Pete Postlethwaite, Arliss Howard, Vince Vaughn and Venessa Lee Chester, but they are all one dimensional characters. The roles could have been played by the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges and it wouldn't have made any difference. The stars of this flick are the dinosaurs. If you like seeing the human population treated like a bowl of Rice Krispies, snap, crackle and pop, by prehis- toric reptiles then this film is for you. gmJagra,
