Chicago Sun-Times
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.

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

New York Daily News
Anything, Steven, anything would be better than making us watch the same movie again.

Another of many recent Hollywood plotless wonders.

Baltimore Sun
Despite all its talk of genetic engineering and its deliberately stupid characters, the unintended message of Jurassic Park III is that when it comes to art and entertainment, you can't beat human DNA.

The sheer physical presence of these creatures is much more believable and convincing than what can be generously characterized as the film's plot.

Entertainment Weekly
Has no pretentions to be anything more than a goose-bumpy fantasy theme-park ride for kids, but it's such a routine ride.

This is a monster movie -- 92 minutes, lots of action, lots of green legs stomping, get in, get out.

Wall Street Journal
Exemplifies Hollywood's standard practice of stomping a brilliant concept beyond recognition.
38
Even the special effects alone aren't worth the price of admission.

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

Rolling Stone
Stinks worse than dino dung. Sure, the creatures look good.
