Dr. Ian Malcolm, the chaos mathematician from JURASSIC PARK, returns in this exciting sequel as he journeys to another dinosaur island to prevent a rival scienties, Lewis Dogsdon, from stealing dinosaur eggs. Of course, the dinosaurs themselves have something to say about this, too. A great thrill ride.
