While the general theme of this film resembles The Blue Lagoon (the movie for which this is a sequel), the basic plot is quite different. We open the film with a ship finding the craft with our original characters in it, Richard and Em dead and Paddy alive. Established in the first film, the only word Paddy ever says is Richard, so the crew assumes Richard is the infants name. Taken in by Sarah, a widow with an infant baby girl Lilli, Richard (Paddy) is cared for in a return to civilization. Struck by sickness, the crew of the ship start do die and the captain sets Sarah, Richard, Lilli and a healthy crew member on a life boat in an attempt to preserve their lives. With water and food running short the crew member escorting Sarah and the children becomes dangerous, so Sarah takes the only course of action she feels suitable to preserve the children she strikes him and throws him overboard. Taking control of the small craft, she eventually guides them back to the island of the first film. The infant Richard, recognizing where he is, finds his home and is very upset not to find his parents. Fixing up the hut and settling in the children, Sarah begins their life on the island, slowly teaching the children survival tools, as well as schooling them as though they were in school, and teaching them slowly about the facts of life, including Lillis eventual growth to womanhood. When Sarah dies from a common flu she leaves the children far more prepared than Em and Richard in the first film. Years later as the children grow into adult hood, the film skims the same themes as the first of the developing relationship, and introduces the characters to civilization when a ship, low on fresh water, stops on their island and offers to take them home. After a confrontation with one of the crew and the captains daughter, Lilli finds herself pregnant and they decide to stay, as they feel the civilization the visitors have to offer will not compare to the life they lead on the island.

This review is from: The Blue Lagoon / The Return to the Blue Lagoon (DVD) Loved The Blue Lagoon more than, The Return to the Blue Lagoon. Both are classic movies. Great price, quality of picture and sound were excellent
When the ship found them they were sleeping not dead the berried made them fall asleep not die!!!!!!!!!! How can they make a sequel did the writers even see the first. Now all these reviews think they die in the orginal.
This review is from: The Blue Lagoon / The Return to the Blue Lagoon (DVD) Blue Lagoon was a classic back in the "good old days" of RCA's Selectivision and Laser Disk. The price back in the day was a king's ransom. Today, thanks to Amazon, you can obtain not only the classic, but the rarely seen sequel as well. The price is fantastic and the entertainment value is phenomenal. Both features were filmed in the stunning South Pacific. Buy, especially great for viewing on a cold winter's night!
This review is from: The Blue Lagoon and Return to the Blue Lagoon (Double Feature) (DVD) Though I consider the first Blue Lagoon film to be better than its poor sequel this is the perfect package for those who want both movies for a reasonable price.Both DVDs are packed in translucent slim style cases within one box.
*SPOILERS AHEAD* Call it morbid curiosity but I couldn't resist watching thissequel/remake/cash-in.The Bad 1. The Plot; (see the Good) A basic rehash of the BL as our Paddy getsrescued from the small craft the original BL couple Richard Snr andEmmeline were cast adrift in. Renamed Richard, his rescuing ship is nowrife with cholera and his adoptive mother and her daughter, Lilli, findtheir way back to the original island. Plot devices repeated from thefirst film as his new guardian teaches the young children the facts oflife and conveniently expires so that the young couple can go throughadolescence, the discovery of love, sex etc etc much like the BL,except this time they are more knowing than the original couple. Thewide-eyed innocence and charm of the first film is completely lost sothe coming of age story had NO resonance. There were no importantthemes about life and death, parenthood, and familial love. Even thesame scenes are repeated; the water-slide; swimming blissfully in thesea, love beneath a waterfall. I can't even comment on how Richard Jnrcan outswim a shark (!) and his father couldn't but I'll let that oneslide...2. Acting; Of all the criticisms against the BL about the poor actingfrom Shields and Atkins, this one is not any better. At least the firstcouple from the original movie had the excuse of having the mentalityof eight year olds and their sparse, childish banter reflected this.This couple (Krause and Jovovich) say cringe-worthy pretentious thingslike "There's a baby growing inside of me... a woman knows these kindsof things".3. The Characterization; I never understood the motivations of thesetwo except that they liked frolicking in the surf. At least in thefirst film one had the contrast between Richard Snr wanting to go backto civilisation and Emmeline who didn't, and the break-up in theirfriendship following Emmeline's failure to light the signal fire. Thepivotal emotional point in the BL was when Richard Snr realised he hadeverything he wanted on the island and didn't hail down his father'sship when it did arrive.4. The Romance; Nope. Didn't feel it or root for the couple, especiallywhen Richard Jnr starts making eyes at the new girl, pushing poor Lilliso far as to daub herself with clownish make-up and put some clothes on(!). In the first movie, Richard Snr rejected civilisation for his lifewith his new-found family.5. Cinematography; Bland. The first BL was much better and theunderwater scenes felt magical.6. Music; Didn't really lift the scenes and barely noticeable except inthe action sequences.The Good 1. The Plot; The last 25 minutes were interesting. A "What If" if"civilized" people came ashore. Well, they're not much better, beingconniving strumpets, thieves and potential rapists. It also workedbetter as an action-adventure film than the first film.2. Social commentary for young ladies; make-up is bad, clothes are BAD,anorexia is even WORSE. Seriously, though, I felt sorry for Lilli whenshe tried to copy her rival for Richard Jnr's affections, going so farto put on make-up and clothes and refusing to eat. I didn't see theanorexia part coming...Overall, this film is barely adequate if you've never seen the firstone. And if you liked the BL, you won't like its sequel. For those ofyou who enjoyed "Return to the BL", I urge you to check out the farsuperior original.
I have not seen the original, and I've seen that this movie got pretty poor reviews from critics, but I thought it was sweet. Mila Jovovich did a good job. The story is predictable, but it was fun to watch them grow up and fun to see their relationship develop on the island paradise. I gave it 3 stars because I don't think that I would watch it again, but it was fun to see it once.
I DID enjoy this movie, but I'm glad I watched the original 1980 version first. The parents are said to be alive in the original, but are just as quickly pronounced dead in the sequel (this is exactly how it happens in the two first books of the Blue Lagoon trilogy). The boy is taken by a widow and her infant to the very island he grew up on, to escape the Cholera on the boat. The boy and girl grow, become beautiful, and the mother dies. Bam! Now you have two hormonal teenagers alone on an island. You can guess what happens next.The movie attempts to "clean up" all the dirtiness from the first one. The only nudity shown is Lilli's (Milla Jovovich), and somewhat briefly at that. The actors do a better job than Brooke Shields and Chris Atkins did, but that's only because Brooke and Chris weren't all that good in the first place (Milla has done a whole bunch of good films, whereas Brooke is known best for inciting controversy in The Blue Lagoon, Pretty Baby, and her Calvin Klein jeans ads). I have to admit that the acting was better, and I enjoyed watching the characters interact. It's a good movie on its own. But compare it with the passion and purity of the first movie, and you're left, pardon the expression, dead in the water.
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.
I saw both "The Blue Lagoon" and "Return to the Blue Lagoon" when I was a bit younger, but when I rewatched them I got the same feeling as before.. they are both excellent movies about love and this one is no worse than the first. It's a similar storyline, but it provides a nice twist in the end when the two (now grown) teens are given a chance to return to civilization.Also, I'd like to comment that in the end of The Blue Lagoon, Em and Richard did die because... the child only had one berrie, which made him go to sleep. But when a person has a lot of those berries (and no, I can't remember the name) then they die. It's like having one sleeping pill as opposed to twenty (which is essentially what Em and Richard did at the end of the first movie).Also, this movie has much more gorgeous people. Brian Krause can now be found in the WB show Charmed (altho he's not as hot, of course) and Milla is going to be in the upcoming sequel to Resident Evil.. where she (again) fights evil zombie monsters in a sexy red dress and black boots. Wow, she's sexy. anyway... enough of my drooling. This movie is wonderful, I recommend it!
My wife and I enjoyed the emphasis on marital fidelity and the respect for God shown in this movie. This is a romantic movie without the perversions usually associated with films of this nature. Hollywood, make more like this one.
I had never even heard about the blue lagoon movies until about ayearÂ ago. After finding out that shields was in the first movie IthoughtÂ that it might be kind of interesting since she was one of myfavoriteÂ actresses however after finding out that there was underagenudity inÂ it my first though was "how could this be legal" since myunderstandingÂ was the underage nudity was not legal in the unitedstates. I put thatÂ thought aside and decided to watch the movieanyway. After watching itÂ I Saw just how innocent the nudity reallywas. There was nothing sexualÂ at all about it. About a month or soafter watching the original blueÂ lagoon I found out that there was asequel and that this one had mila jovovichÂ Â in it, another actress ofwhom I knew from the resident evilÂ series. I figured that this onemight be just a good as the first oneÂ and for the most part it was. Imean don't get me wrong this was aÂ wonderful movie and the story linewas well thought out but theÂ innocents that we saw from the first moviewas taken away. In the firstÂ movie they grew up not knowing aboutpuberty, pregnancy, and what yourÂ body goes though during that time. Inthis movie both of the youngÂ children were educated about the changesthat their bodies would goÂ through when they hit the age of puberty. Ifyou put that aside and just watch both movies you will see that theyare both great movies to watch. I personally cannot see howÂ people cansay that this movie or it's original with shields in it are in any wayborderline child pornography. Okay so what I mean yes we do seeÂ afrontal view of mila jovovich's breasts and she was only like 15 orÂ soin this movie and during the first twenty minutes or so thereareÂ numerous scenes in which we see a frontal shot of youngCourtneyÂ barilla who is only like 8 or 9 at the time but it's not likeit isÂ anything that we've never seen growing up so I personally cannotseeÂ how people are so bent out of shape about seeing it in the moviesbutÂ to each their own. Putting that aside both the original and it'ssequelÂ were great movies and their story lines were well thought out.They areÂ both worth seeing and in my opinion are a perfect family moviefor allÂ ages. Younger children might not fully understand what is goingon inÂ the movie and parents might have to explain some things but bothmoviesÂ are family oriented.
The first Blue Lagoon ended with Richard and Em being found by hisfather alive where as in this 1 they're found by someone else and onlyPaddy survives and that bothered me just a little bit. It was cool tosee what they can do with the knowledge Richard and Em didn't have. Ifelt like this 1 was missing something that the first 1 had but I likethat it did continue. However, all that being said, this was still agood movie, worth the watch but my least favorite out of the 3 movies.Acting is good. I bought this on ITunes and I really wanted to rent andit didn't have that option. After watching I still wish I could haverented. It's not so good that I want to keep watching. I could watchthe 1st 1 over and over again. Can this be made for rent somewhere,though it doesn't do me any good now?
This review is from: The Blue Lagoon and Return to the Blue Lagoon (Double Feature) (DVD) BLUE LAGOON IS AN EXCELLENT MOVIE,IT'S LIKE BROOKE AND CHRIS WAS MAKED FOR EACH OTHER.I WOULD LOVE TO LIVE ON THAT ISLAND OF THERES. RETURN TO BLUE LAGOON IS BASICLY THE SAME AS BLUE LAGOON, BUT DIFFERENT POEPLE!!!
I didn't quite understand how in the first movie Richard's father comes by on a ship and finds them drifting in the sea, and one sailor says that they're not dead, but just asleep. And then the second movie picks up with another ship finding the boat, but Richard and Emmeline are already dead, and only the baby survived. Does that mean that Richard's father just checked them out and set them adrift again? What the hell...? SO the beginning of the second movie is really lame, according to me.
Flicks like this (for sleaze fans) fall into the underage perversion category, jailbait, lolitas, that sort of thing. I'm not sure how old Milla was here, but the point is whether she pulls off the feeling of being sixteen, and the answer is yes. Of course, there's no point if there's no nudity, but there is, briefly.First we got some topless tyke running around, but boy, that stretches the definition in pretty much unacceptable territory. Anyway, it's brief. Then we got a lot of swimming and skimpy costumes (mucho legs and tummy) by the older Milla, but nowhere near as explicit as BG I. Finally, we got a uni-nip mirror scene. That's it, you can stop watching at that point and save wear and tear on your fast forward button. One star for the one nip, max.
It took 11 years for a sequal to Blue Lagoon to come out. Why there would or could ever be a sequal, I don't really know. The first was more overtly sensual and raw than this one could have been, but, it is, after all, the same movie with different actors.The son of Richard and Em, RIchard Jr., is rescued at sea when his parents (Christopher Atkins and Brooke Shields) were attempting to leave their island home and died drifting on their boat. The rescuing ship sinks, and a woman with Richard Jr. and her daughter, Lilly, will be marooned on an island in the South Pacific. The woman dies soon after of illness, and Richard and Lilly are left alone on the island, to relive just what Brooke and Chris did in the first movie.I wonder why they felt they had to make a sequal to a movie like Blue Lagoon. Once the story was over, it was just over. How could the story continue and why did it have to? I would have liked to see Richard Jr. be taken back to civilization and lead a civilized life. THAT would be something. And Richard Jr. and Lilly look just like their predecesors, and have every experience they had. The only exception to this was the inclusion of the mother figure at the beginning on the island. Here it was established that they learned some social, language, and survival skills from her, making their long existence on the island alone a little more believable.Even the scenery wasn't as beuatiful as the first one's, but it was still wonderful. Who wouldn't want a sandy beach for just a day or two to lounge about on? And with a handsome man at that. But it's just fluff.
This review is from: The Blue Lagoon and Return to the Blue Lagoon (Double Feature) (DVD) My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this movie together. The Blue Lagoon is a great movie. The Return to the Blue Lagoon made you wonder why they made a sequal to begin with. Overall, it's a great collection.
This film is set before the 20th century, and I like the tropicalenvironment compared to the suffocating stuffiness of everything beforethe mid 1960s. Actually I like a tropical environment in any time but Ilike technology also.The first film needed to have a longer ending and they needed toexplain a lot more, because in this film they are dead and they arediscovered by different people. Their boat even looks different!! Sodid they all have a ship wreck and then they died in a different boat?!Why are they dead anyways?! I am bringing this up because their childsurvives. Perhaps it is because the parents ate more poison. And sincethese are the "never-wake-up berries", it could have been implied thatthey never wake up.Whatever the explanation is, it is still dumb.The actors don't look the same. This movie was even more boring thanthe original. But I liked how they went swimming while the other peoplekept their 10 layers of clothes on and were sweating. These kidssurvive in the end of the movie, but what are they going to do forgrandchildren?? Mate with the natives from that other island?!
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.
The first Blue Lagoon was one of the worst movies of all time, and Iactually liked this one better. The acting seemed a lot more convincing, inparticular if you compare Milla Jovovich to Brooke Shields.The first half hour of the movie is a build-up to the fact that they'reactually on the island, and takes on a bit too long. When the mother diesthe movie takes the same steps as the first one, with the two maincharacters discovering their own and each others sexuality.Then the movie takes a turn when our two cast-aways return to civilizationwhen a ship comes by. Things complicate as a young woman is on board thattakes a liking in Richard (Brian Krause), and a pirate-like guy who takesafter Lilli (Jovovich) and her pearls.Although the movie is kinda losing it at this point (with gunshots and ashark-attack), I preferred it over part 1 (which was a bore). Just onething: isn't Jovovich showing a little bit too much skin for a 15 year old?5/10.
