Synopsis
Paleontologist Alan Grant (Sam Neill) has sworn never to return to Jurassic Park. But he needs funding for his research, so when a wealthy thrill-seeking couple (William H. Macy and Téa Leoni) come calling, Grant and his protégée, Billy (Alessandro Nivola), agree to take them on a sightseeing flight. By the time Grant finds out what their true purpose is--to land on the island and search for their missing son--all of their lives are in peril. And Grant's newfound theory about Raptor intelligence will have its deadly proof.

Joe Johnston was the right director to take over Steven Spielberg's JURASSIC PARK series. He's experienced with special effects, having worked on the STAR WARS films, while his OCTOBER SKY demonstrates his skill at telling an emotionally involving tale. In JURASSIC PARK 3, with the help of a top-notch technical team and a talented cast (who began filming before the script was finished, improvising much of their dialogue), and a new dinosaur, Spinosaurus, that makes even T-Rex nervous, Johnston has fashioned a rousing adventure with state-of-the-art visuals. Clocking in at a tense 92 minutes, it's the fastest-moving, most action-packed film of the series.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
"...It's a nice little thrill machine..."
Roger Ebert (18 Jul 2001, p.49)
Entertainment Weekly
"...All of these creatures are fun and arresting to behold....They attack with a beak-snapping viciousness that seems purely hardwired..."
Owen Gleiberman (27 Jul 2001, p.46)
Los Angeles Times
"...The film's creatures, such as the flying pteranodons, are noticeably chilling..."
Kenneth Turan (18 Jul 2001, p.1)
New York Times
"...The movie dashes like a one-track-mind raptor. It's speedy, light on its feet and louder than bombs..."
Elvis Mitchell (18 Jul 2001, p.E1)
Rolling Stone
"...The creatures look good, especially the badass spinosaurus and the flying pteranodons. And how about those raptors -- they actually talk..."
Peter Travers (30 Aug 2001, p.131-2)
Total Film

Dan Jolin (1 Sep 2001, p.101)

Customer Reviews

Fun and scary movie

Reviewed by on

This might be the worst of the Jurassic Park movie, but it's still not a bad movie. Some really memorable scenes, William H Macy back in the day and special effects, animatronics and CGI that still hold up today.
