Jurassic Park III (2001)
Gimme More DINOS!
I didn't know what to expect when I first sat down before the movie started. Being a dinosaur fan since i was 5 years old, I loved the original Jurassic Park. However, I was disappointed with the second and out of loyalty, forced myself to like JP2. But this time I told myself, I am going to be totally unbiased and judge the movie not because of my fascination for dinosaurs, but on its own entertaining merits.
When I had finished watching Jurassic Park III, all I could say was.. AWESOME! Being only 95 minutes long, it got straight to the point (dinosaurs) and there never was a dull or boring moment. (Although at the start of the movie there was the anticipation of seeing the dinos again). I thought good ol' Sam Neill was great and it was good to see Laura Dern again but the most impressive member of the cast was the Spinosaurus. He was an excellent villain! He had to be since there were no Nedry's or Ludlow's to worry about. I was saddened to see the demise of the T-Rex, but then again, they had to show the power of the spino and how better to demonstrate this than by getting spino to destroy the rex. (I thought it was a lucky punch though... err.. bite).
The Pterandon's looked so real and the raptors were in great shape as always, however there were times when I thought the brachiosaurs weren't organic looking enough and too digital looking (like the ones in Disney's Dinosaur) especially during the episode by the river.
Bottom line is, great movie but not as good as the first. That is only due to the fact that we are familar with seeing dinosaurs at the movies already. And who cares about story loopsholes and the easy to understand story line? All I care about are the dinosaurs
