Jurassic Park 3 : Movie Review

Jurassic Park III (2001)After the phenomenal success of Jurassic Park (1993), and Lost World: Jurassic Park, The (1997), comes Jurassic Park 3 (2001) an almost certain Summer 2001 blockbuster. This, the third part in the Jurassic Park trilogy, centres around two parents who are on a desperate search to find their son, who, due to a devastating paragliding accident gets trapped on Isla Sorna (Site B from Lost World: Jurassic Park, The (1997)).

As you would expect from any film carrying the Jurassic Park name, this film is filed with lots of fantastic and frightening dinosaurs, which have been created with incredible use of animatronics and computer generation. These, along with the other special effects and trademark sound track make this film a real pleasure to watch.

Although at first the story line to this film may seem a little thin, the whole new angle taken by Jurassic Park 3 (2001) makes the film seem very fresh. The introduction of new elements to the Jurassic Park world and a noted lack of previous characters removes any possibility of unoriginality criticism (The only major character who has made it all the way from Jurassic Park (1993) is Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant).

This film is excellent at keeping your attention and the 'scary' sections of the film are much better than I personally expected. Another factor that I thought improved it greatly over it predecessors was its lack of predictability, which obviously made it all the more enjoyable. Overall this film is interesting and worth going to see, however I would probably recommend this film to younger viewers rather than experienced film buffs.
