Joe Johnston unfortunately doesn't have a novel to fall back on in the third installment. The third movie is much shorter than the two previous installments, making the movie go much faster. But it is very predictable, and not very worthy of investment for the first half. It seems as though the director wanted to see how many different scenarios he could use the dinosaurs in, but that's not to say this movie doesn't have good points.The special effects are once again top notch, and the usage of the phone ring-tone to build suspense is implemented perfectly. The character development, however, seems to all happen in the second half, and it seems to only concern the Kirby's. Yet I think the Kirby's story arc is done very well. While some parts of the movie may be fun, it just doesn't compare to the first or even second movie, but you should give it a watch anyway, as there are some good-great moments.

More teeth, but less story. A repetitive storyline, with no good motivation to drive the storyline. The movie is darker, but fails to deliver the dark story there should have been.

Despite the swift paced and somewhat mediocre plot, Jurassic Park 3 is still better than its predecessor and also provides a much less stereotypical antagonist than the titular T-Rex, which comes in the form of the Spinosaurus.

Benefiting from a breathtakingly shorter runtime than The Lost World, the return of Sam Neill, and an underrated performance from William H. Macy, Jurassic Park III is let down by uneven pacing, an over abundance of character stupidity, and CGI that makes the Hulk and Abomination in The Incredible Hulk look 100% real by comparison. There are a few good moments and one or two great ones, like the T-Rex vs Spinosaurus fight, but they're not enough to make up for all of the bad. It greatly benefits from NOT having a stapled-on second ending like The Lost World, but as a whole falls short.

Maybe this movie does not have many great ideas as the first ones and Jurassic World,but i still enjoy it just like the other ones ,i watched it as a child and i learned about dinosaurs that was correct at the time.Now it,s still great some things did not fit but it,s still a great movie at least for me.

This might be the weakest film in the series but it's still not bad. There's still plenty of action, and great CGI and a reasonable plot line to keep this film entertaining.

This franchise just keeps on climbing down the staircase taking yet another step down from its previous letdown. This film focuses on a really annoying couple whose son goes missing after parasailing on the coast of the Islas. They hire dinosaur specialists, one who happens to be Dr. Grant from the first film, and to help them find the boy and once agin run into trouble as they try to survive in a world with dinosaurs. The attacks are always fun to watch and the thrills are always present in these films. I'm not impressed by this movie but I still enjoyed it (besides the annoying ass mom who doesn't have an ounce of common sense or intellect in her body).
I guess this is what happens when you pull Stephen Spielberg from directing a franchise that he created...

More dinosaurs, more action, more characters, more scenery. But, where you leave the script, or the logic? Still funny.

Terrible acting as bad as Sharknado if not worse cause Sharknado series on purpose for bad acting. Story super weak in series and awful writing too. Why did I watch this for 2nd time ever...oh yeah, my daughter wanted to see.

So much action and dinosaur chases. Still a good dinosaur movie.

Terrible casting, less suspense, annoying writing, and a sudden ending all turn this into easily the worst of the Jurassic movies.

Awesome movie just like the previous 2. This movie once again had new dinosaurs and a good story. It also brought back Sam Neill and Laura Dern (hers was more of a cameo though). Overall I like it a little better than number 2. All 3 are great though. Cool concept for a movie.

Surprisingly good. Very entertaining due to the fast pace.

Dull characters and a lackluster journey cap off this trilogy in the worst way possible. No chemistry with the characters. Dinosaurs look worse than before, and doesn't show Ellie/Allen reunion at the end.

though it's a short film (For A Jurassic Park Film) and the characters are weak "Jurassic Park 3" is darker and gives some nostalgia back to the franchise after a 4 year break.

Such a shame that this movie turned out so bad. It's fun to watch once, but I would not recommend it to anyone. It's the worst Jurassic Park sequel so far.
