Perceived wisdom has it that Steven Spielberg’s eye-saucering 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park is one of the all-time greats while his 1997 sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, is a dud.

FOUR SEQUELS THAT COULDN'T: A CAUTIONARY TALE
Interesting
Another weekend has come and gone and another disappointing sequel has crashed and burned. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For had high expectations from fans and from box office forecasters. It was a bust on both fronts. The ingredients of what made the first film entertaining were there, but it didn't fly this time.

More frustrating than a lazy soulless sequel to a great movie (think Ghostbusters 2) is a second installment that has all the potential to be a good movie but, alas, the makers over-thought the story. A great continuation was sitting right there but they messed it up by making it needlessly complicated.

Four films come to mind as lost opportunities. Spoilers ahead for old films.
