We look at the special effects and animatronics made for the motion picture, Jurassic Park III (2001). Interviews with the cast and crew give us a sneak peek at the film. The movie used many different new dinosaurs compared to the first two films, here we examine how they'll look in the final product. A brief look at the action for the film is also shown, but not to a great extent. Written by
The third installment is the weakest link of the Jurassic chain. This documentary goes a long way toward explaining what happened with this installment, but did nothing in the way of changing my opinion of the movie.
It explains everything from concept to post production, but fails to inspire even the smallest vein of dedication to this chapter. Let's compare. This documentary receives a 6.4 from regular users here at IMDb, while the movie it documents earns a 5.6. (blank stare)
However, I shall attempt to not throw the downfalls of Jurassic Park 3 onto this "making of" documentary.
It explains that the "spinosaurus" was (in its largest specimen) 57 feet tall and the largest carnivorous dinosaur ever found, while the T-Rex was 45 feet tall.
It does show that the movie was done with as many models and latex effects as it was CG. Full sized animatronics, and amazing attention to detail. I hate that it did not pay off on film, and do sincerely hope it does not impact on the upcoming JP4.
I give it a Documentary Scale 8.8/10 from...
