Consensus: The dinos are as cool as ever, but there's too much of a "been there, done that" feel.

Derek Elley

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.

Bad news is the only news in Jurassic Park III.

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

The third time around is at least one time too many.

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

An unnecessary sequel that only provides shallow thrills thanks to a few intense situations. The plot is a predictable series of loosely stitched together chase… More

Is not better that the first Jurassic Park, but, for certain is better that the second. Anyway, Jurassic Park III, is nice, but weak. Rotten.

While the visuals have lost their wow factor, this still maintains some of its acting and intense situations. While the raptors get unusual colours, T-Rex is… More

Such a letdown. It could have been so great too. But here's the thing: this film wasn't even really necessary. I felt like all that needed to be said… More
