Director Joe Johnston takes over the creative reins from Steven Spielberg for this third installment in the thriller franchise. Sam Neill returns as Dr. Alan Grant, a scientist who's tricked by wealthy couple Paul and Amanda Kirby (William H. Macy and Tea Leoni) into a fly-over of Isla Sorna. The object of their sightseeing tour is one of the Costa Rican islands populated by ferocious, genetically bred dinosaurs and the "site B" setting of Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World (1997). After their plane crash-lands, it's revealed that the Kirbys are actually seeking their teenage son, lost on the island after a paragliding accident. Trapped on Isla Sorna, Grant and his companions discover some painful truths the hard way. Among their discoveries: some of the scaly monsters possess more advanced communicative abilities than previously believed, the dreaded Tyrannosaurus Rex has a larger and more lethal competitor, and flying Pteranodons pose an even graver threat than some of their land-locked brethren. Jurassic Park III is the first in the series not to be based upon a novel by original author Michael Crichton. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Not as good as the first one. JP2 didn't leave an impression on me like JP1 and 3 have. After seeing JP3 I thought to myself that this should have been the second one. JP2 from what I remeber had badly drawn out sequences that just ruined the flow of the movie for me. And the horrible King Kong ending. Parts of it were amazingly corny or just dull. From what I remember. I should rent it again, maybe I will see something different. I like JP3. I feel it has many of the elements the first one did. Action, Suspense, plot, theory, and the flow was great. No part of it runs stagnant. Could have been better, but it surely isn't dull or horrible. reason for the armed forces, Dr. Ellie Sattler called in the troops. Probably has some high contacts with what she knows about the islands and could do so. I wouldn't send a couple guys in a dingy to rescue anyone from those islands. the ending made a lot of sense. But the Teradactles(sp?) would have been shot down. Only part I thought was bad.
