Eight years after the InGen incident, Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) is persuaded into going to Isla Sorna by Paul Kirby (William H. Macy) and his wife (Téa Leoni), who hope Grant will help them find their son (Trevor Morgan) who crash-landed on the island.


After siding with "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" for unfairly getting so much hate - sure, it wasn't as good as the first one, but it still was a solid film -, this time around I won't spare any criticism to "Jurassic Park III", a truly awful addition to the series.

With no ideas whatsoever, still with the need to make a money-making film, the filmmakers basically "delivered" a film that has no plot - and that little of it doesn't even make any sense -, no Jeff Goldblum, no character development, and where basically most of the characters are nothing but food for dinosaurs. And not even interesting food, but boring tofu. The characters are so one-dimensional, it's even impossible to find them annoying.

Now one would say, okay, the script is crap, but there's still the dinosaurs, right? Nope. Well, there are some dinosaurs but they are awful, just like the rest of the film. Also, there isn't enough of them and they are not even scary.

Which brings me to the next point, the special effects. I cannot believe how bad the effects look in this film. It's as if technology took several steps back since the previous film, and the dinosaurs would make for a great evidence: they look like puppets.

And of course the films lacks that tension Spielberg was able to create in the first film and kinda replicate in the second. And there isn't even a lot of science involved.

However, if you are the kind of person who likes their movies with a lot of action and nothing else, you might enjoy this film as the action is almost non-stop.
