Jurassic Park III Reviews

An all-action, helter-skelter, don't-forget-to-buy-the-computer-game ride that makes the two previous installments look like models of classic filmmaking.

If there's one thing certain in this new instalment of Jurassic Park, it's that the critters are a whole lot smarter, faster and interesting than the Homo sapiens dropping in on them.

Too bad the script doesn't extend the same courtesy to the actors, who are saddled with dialogue neither man nor beast could respond to.

What makes it worth sitting through is the chance it offers to catch up on the technical advances since the last installment.

Spielberg's wizardry is gone, and his balletic light touch as well, and that gives too much of this 90-minute movie over to the duller-than-dull characters.

A movie in which little else happens except people get chased, terrified and generally bullied by prehistoric creatures.

Plays out the way you'd expect, perfunctorily, obligingly, without much enthusiasm and with very little terror.

With the exception of some startlingly real and impressive dinosaur effects, its only virtue is brevity, running as it does a mere 92 minutes.

It's disappointing that the competent, toned-down, mildly exciting third installment, Jurassic Park III, is little more than a re-rehash of the first movie and much of the second.

The best thing that can be said about JP III is that it's stripped to its essentials; it's all effects and action, with the human element reduced to cliches that will have 5-year-olds rolling their eyes.

Not as awe-inspiring as the first film or as elaborate as the second, but in its own B-movie way, it's a nice little thrill machine.

A sturdy, watchable, Saturday-afternoon-serial throwback that teems with cool creatures. But it's too prefab to really deliver on the promise of 'intense sci-fi terror' written into the movie's MPAA rating description.

It's a tribute to the action skills of director Joe Johnston (Jumanji is the relevant credit) that this film is as brisk and involving as it is.
