Editorial Reviews

It took 11 years for the sequel to The Blue Lagoon to materialize. In the naturalistic, romanticized world conjured by the films, however, one begins where the other ended. Although Emmeline and Richard die at sea, their son is rescued by a passing ship and taken in by widowed mother Sarah (Lisa Pelikan). When the crew comes down with cholera, Sarah leaves the ship with daughter Lilli and Richard Jr. They wash up on a familiar island in the South Pacific--the "blue lagoon" of the earlier film. Sarah raises the urchins as best she can but succumbs to illness after a few years on the island. The story line then echoes that of the original film. The cute kids become attractive teenagers (model-turned-actress Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause) and friendship turns to wariness, eventually blossoming into love. That love is tested when they're--finally--granted the opportunity to return to civilization. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Return to the enchanting South Pacific where an exciting new adventure unfolds. When two young lovers lose their lives at sea, they leave a young son behind. A kind-hearted widow and her daughter rescue the orphan, but through tragic circumstances, the children are abandoned on a deserted island. As days turn into years, the boy and girl experience the blissful awakening of tender young love. Buttheir rapture is violently interrupted by the troublesome crew of a passing ship and the new temptations that it brings. Their dreams of returning to society quickly fade when their hearts tell them that nothing is worth sacrificing the purest of loves. Full of romance and action, this sequel to the smash hit is a coming-of-age story that your whole family will enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original December 15, 2004
The first Blue Lagoon was daring and a bit controversial. It showed two children growing up without adults in their lives, growing up without inhibitions, without guidance, and learning some fundamental truths without help. It dared to show full-frontal nudity (carefully!) because that seemed natural. It had the courage to confront things like child birth for child-adults who had no idea of what was going on. That's some of what makes it a classic film, one which holds up even today.

This film, for all that it is a sequel, comes across as a revisionist attempt to "clean up" the original. It starts where the previous film left off, with a small boat being seen by a sailing vessel. Unlike the end of the previous film, where all three occupants of the boat are pronounced alive, in this film the parents are dead, and only the child survives. He is taken aboard the sailing vessel and entrusted to the care of a recently widowed woman who has an infant daughter. The woman, Sarah Hargreaves (Lisa Pelikan), and the two children, are cast adrift in a lifeboat a short while later because the ship is infected with cholera (a virtual death sentence for all aboard) - they are cast adrift in the hope they may survive. By pure happenstance (alright, by a piece of not-very-clever script-writing) they happen to arrive at an island that is supposed to look awfully familiar.

This time the children grow up with Sarah to teach them right and wrong, and all about God (she was a missionary), and so forth (all the things that were "wrong" in the first version). Eventually Sarah contracts pneumonia and dies, but not before she has time to explain how she'd like to be buried.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Lagoon 2 - interesting twist June 22, 2005
By Wendy
I've also seen both Blue Lagoon stories, and like everybody else, was quite concerned with the lack of continuity and form between the two . . the child was older, the parents were sleeping/dead. . and whatever happened to the loyal dad floating around at sea that found his kids finally sleeping in that little dinghy?

However, I was able to suspend reality and enjoy the second film by altering the first in my own mind. I have to say that as far as the berries were concerned, I always DID think that Paddy (the baby) had a better chance of survival as he only swallowed a berry or two. His parents each masticated (chewed) 20 - 25 berries each and swallowed them down. Much more opportunity for poison to openly enter the blood stream. But I digress...

The second movie, while not as "brave" as the first in terms of "raw" sensuality was still quite enjoyable, I thought. I rather enjoyed the idea of two children who had "some" learning from a parent who had adequate time to teach them then left on their own. It combined a different take than the first film. In this film, the children have "some" idea of the values and mores of European civilization, but have to adapt those values to fit within their own experience. In the first film, the children were quite simply too young and alone for far too long to really understand much of anything except what they learned on their own. Because of these differences, I was able to enjoy each film in it's own right.

I think both films are worth a look, but if pressed, I would still have to choose the original as the best of the two . . as originals usually are.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what a sequel should be August 15, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even tough The Return to the Blue Lagoon got me to think the first time that I heard about it that well finally I would know what happened at the end, well I was disappointed. Like most I guess. But explain to me how can you kill to persons whom in the first one where alive. Unless they died of dehydration. But I think the movie would have been more fun if they showed us a Richard and Em in San Francisco or wherever they where going to, trying to adjust to life, seeing Richards face when people explained to him that Paddy was his son, because if you didn't noticed, he didn't have a clue about anything. And then...tatatatannnn Richard and Em return with Paddy to the blue lagoon because honestly they felt like strangers. Wouldn't that be more fun to watch? I think it was cruel to kill them. When it was much fun and creative to let them live. Adjust. The return doesn't even compare. Even the nude scenes on the first can't be called nudity, is art, because they where beautifully done. But what the heck. I still bought both of them so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable August 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I really enjoyed this film.I thought that it was cute how they tied in the first Blue lagoon and didn't just make a storyline not having to do with the first one.I thought there wasn't too much nudity(unlike the first film),and that the actors had fun with the roles.This film is good for a date or just to hang out with a couple of good friends.

Return to the Blue lagoon is probably one of my favorite "rent" movies. It really cheers you up if you are having a bad day, and puts you in the romantic mood. This movie basically moves right along, and by the time you get to the romance, it's finished. This movie is not to long, but not to short. Although, it does have many differences than The Blue Lagoon, with Brook Shields. To get a better knowledge of the movie, it is best to see both of them! So don't hesitate to rent both the blue lagoon, and Return to the blue lagoon. I love this movie so much, that I even have a picture of it, with Brian Krause framed.
