Fresh: An efficient and surprisingly palatable finale to the Jurassic franchise.

Rotten: 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.

I liked this one more than the others. I don't know why though. It's just how I am.

And ladies and gentlemen, here is the definition of a useless sequel. The first 2 films were based on 2 excellent novels, and the third film is literally the parts cut from the first 2 books that didn't get put into the first 2 films, condensed and re-written for a cash grab. And it's not even a good cash grab. The new characters range from boring to highly unlikable (Tea Leoni's character will NOT SHUT THE EXPLETIVE UP EVER WHEN SCREAMING). You can miss out on this one, it has none of the charm the first 2 have.

Jurassic Park III is a much needed improvement over The Lost World. While The Lost World was visually stunning of course, the film lacked the strong dramatic and story elements that made the first one such a classic. This third entry directed by Joe Johnson is a worthy addition to the saga. I enjoyed this third part more than The Lost World. I thought that Jurassic Park III had a much better storyline than The Lost Boys, and also it brought back a few dramatic elements which made the first entry so great. Johnson crafts a phenomenal blockbuster and he is a terrific director and he's a worthy successor to Spielberg. Jurassic Park III has polarized fans of the original, and it's understandable. Sam Neil and Laura Dern return and personally I thought that it made the film better. They delivered the best performances of the first film along with Richard Attenborough. Goldblum meanwhile is a has been and his last good film was Independence Day which incidentally came out the same year as the average The Lost World. Jurassic Park III is a film that Jurassic Park fans can take or leave it. I enjoyed this picture and I thought it made the best elements of the first two, but it was toned down slightly, which really isn't bad. But the film is of course less epic in scope than the original as CGI dinosaurs are no longer anything new or exciting. Jurassic Park III has an improved storyline than the second and decent enough acting and good enough action to keep you entertained. I just wouldn't call this one garbage, I think it's too strong a word to use. I'd say this film is an above average Sci Fi Action Adventure that you can either take it for what it is or leave it as average sequel. There are far films out there. If you're looking for a fun popcorn flick, Jurassic Park III delivers the goods that The Lost World lacked.
