I know I’m not supposed to like Roland but it’s really hard not to.
He’s got several cool lines (and one awesome cut scene) and there is a level of complexity about him which is intreaging despite the whole great white hunter routine.
Like yesterday’s piece I find myself wondering and speculating on the motivation. Why he drugged the T-Rex instead of killing it as he originally intended. Surely he had other bullets he could have loaded into that rifle? But he’s made the decision to capture rather than kill which has opened the gates for InGen to try and recoup the expedition. Something I can’t imagine Roland caring all that much about.
To be honest I think you can turn the film off here. The whole ship set up is so unbelievably executed it is frankly mind-boggling that a director of Spielberg’s caliber would mess it up so completely.
It’s such a disappointing ending.
I may, however do one last scribble from The Lost World, but it won’t mean I approve of the scene!
