    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.

    True, the film offers little new, but it's still stirring family entertainment...

    If there's one thing certain in this new instalment of Jurassic Park, it's that the critters are a whole lot smarter, faster and interesting than the Homo sapiens dropping in on them.

    Bad news is the only news in Jurassic Park III.

    Name user

    Too bad the script doesn't extend the same courtesy to the actors, who are saddled with dialogue neither man nor beast could respond to.

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

    Drama is minimal and character nonexistent.

    Name user

    What makes it worth sitting through is the chance it offers to catch up on the technical advances since the last installment.

    Name user

    Dinosaurs rule movie but flimsy screenplay undercuts intense action.

    Name user

    Spielberg's wizardry is gone, and his balletic light touch as well, and that gives too much of this 90-minute movie over to the duller-than-dull characters.

    Relatively speaking, Jurassic Park III is a disappointment of behemoth proportions.

    2/4
    Name user

    As always, the technical credits are not only outstanding but the whole reason for the film to exist.

    Name user

    Has the integrity of a solid B-movie.

    2/4
    Name user

    One staggeringly silly movie.

    Name user

    The dialogue is weak and the science has gone from incredulous to silly.

    Name user

    A third time? Think Thanksgiving leftovers -- in December.

    Name user

    A movie in which little else happens except people get chased, terrified and generally bullied by prehistoric creatures.

    Name user

    Plays out the way you'd expect, perfunctorily, obligingly, without much enthusiasm and with very little terror.

    Name user

    A lot of stagnant storytelling trapped underneath prehistoric footprints.

    Name user

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

    Name user

    The story's tired, as are the main characters.

    2/5
    Name user

    With the exception of some startlingly real and impressive dinosaur effects, its only virtue is brevity, running as it does a mere 92 minutes.

    As dull as the movie is, at least it's not Pearl Harbor.

    Name user

    It's disappointing that the competent, toned-down, mildly exciting third installment, Jurassic Park III, is little more than a re-rehash of the first movie and much of the second.

    Name user

    The best thing that can be said about JP III is that it's stripped to its essentials; it's all effects and action, with the human element reduced to cliches that will have 5-year-olds rolling their eyes.

    Name user

    Not as awe-inspiring as the first film or as elaborate as the second, but in its own B-movie way, it's a nice little thrill machine.

    Name user

    Captures some of the wonder from the first picture.

    Name user

    Has to be the sorriest excuse for a reprise since Highlander -- The Final Dimension.

    Name user

    A sturdy, watchable, Saturday-afternoon-serial throwback that teems with cool creatures. But it's too prefab to really deliver on the promise of 'intense sci-fi terror' written into the movie's MPAA rating description.

    Name user

    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.

    Name user

    The lack of empathetic characters seems more a filmmaking deficiency than some grand cinematic plan. The viewer definitely leaves the movie feeling unsatisfied.

    Name user

    A popcorn-chomping thrill ride that's perfect as a summertime distraction.

    Name user

    Partly campy, mostly straight-ahead horrific and nearly always watchable.
