The dialogue is weak and the science has gone from incredulous to silly.

Relatively speaking, Jurassic Park III is a disappointment of behemoth proportions.

Yes, the JPIII dinosaurs are terrific and the flying sequences are spectacular. But can I be so bold as to plead: Next time, how about a story?

More than half an hour shorter than The Lost World, so at least there's a lot less of it to suffer through.

A fun-filled afternoon of dinotastic monstrosities and jump out of the bushes thrills.

A clumsy, and poorly written farce with irritating characters I prayed for imminent death to arrive to.

Mr. Johnston keeps the action and one-liners coming and, before you know it, it's over.

Lacks not just a soul but also a body, so to speak, with no plot to absorb us and no characters worthy of our empathy or concern.

Nobody stopped long enough to write an engaging plot or to develop three-dimensional characters.

With "Jurassic Park III" Johnston inherits the series one film too late. There are only so many ways a dinosaur can chase people through a jungle.

The Jurassic movies have by now palpably entered the plane of baldly profit-hunting, unpretentious entertainment...

Maybe it's time for the "Jurassic Park" park franchise to join hands with Toho [Pictures] and Godzilla.

The plot, as it were, is a series of coincidences combined with extreme leaps of faith and a trifecta of stupid cell phone tricks

If it's dumb humans crashing through the undergrowth you're after, rent a Rambo movie instead.

The dinosaurs are back again, but this time without Steven Spielberg at the helm...and it shows.

Those dreaded Raptors are back with a vengeance in Jurassic Park III. More bad news -- they've brought along even more deadly friends.
