The brilliant Cheung Chung Tat is at it again with more Jurassic Park dinosaur head studies.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park - Steven Spielberg - 1997.
The official explanation is that Malcolm’s other children are either from previous relationships and live with their mom, or are old enough to live on their own by the time The Lost World takes place. Malcolm is “stuck” with Kelly only because her mother abadoned her with him and left for France, according to dialogue in The Lost World.
Such an interesting family dynamic… that’s what you get when you’re always on the lookout for a future ex-Ms. Malcolm.
The whole aspect of the second island itself always seemed a little out of place to me. In the books, it made sense; Isla Nublar was nuked at the end of book 1 so Michael Crichton had to create the second island, Isla Sorna, out of necessity in order to continue the story. But in the movie version Isla Nublar is not destroyed.
The book version of Hammond is also more sinister than the warm, innocent character in the movie, so the “dirty little secret” of the second island fit the character better in the novels. With all the little changes to the story and character between the book versions to the movie versions, these things don’t quite hold up as well as other aspects.
I reconcile it by considering the backstory of the movie’s Hammond. Sure he presents himself as a gentle, grandfatherly figure, but he’s also an entrepreneur. You don’t go from flea circus to billionaire without some degree of ruthlessness. And surely discovering the scientific breakthrough of cloning extinct animals and constructing of a theme park based around them without your competition knowing, requires keeping a few secrets. :D

This is awesome. I’ve been waiting for someone to create something like this.
You are correct. Experienced mercenaries, two dozen armed InGen soldiers, even Robert Muldoon are no match for dinosaurs. You need the skills of a 12 year old gymnast to take out a raptor.
That is badass! O_O
