Jurassic Park III

The third instalment to the Jurassic Park series sees Sam Neill returning to dinosaur-infested lands on the request of two concerned parents. Directed by Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger), co-stars William H. Macy and Téa Leoni.

When Paul (Macy) convinces Dr. Alan Grant (Neill) to guide him and his wife Amanda (Leoni) through a simple flying tour over Isla Sorna, he reluctantly accepts. However, when the plane lands, the couple’s ulterior motives are revealed: they are searching for their son Eric who is reported missing after paragliding. Scammed into helping them, the rescue plan soon turns into a fight for survival when a pack of velociraptors begin to show signs of intellectual evolution.

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.

Scratch Spielberg's sloppy The Lost World from your brain, and focus on Joe Johnston's simple but monster-packed addition to the franchise. He's obviously realised it's better to make a fun, lean B-pic than a disappointing, bloated blockbuster.

All it wants to do is scare a smile onto your face, and it often succeeds.

This great dinosaur of a movie is shambling towards well-merited extinction.

In its own B-movie way, it's a nice little thrill machine.

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.

The technical credits are not only outstanding but the whole reason for the film to exist.

It lacks the scale, the chills and the wonder of the original, but is more fun as a thrill ride than its sequel predecessor.

Compared to some of this summer's blockbusters, this is better than average.
