Dr. Alan Grant is now a happy man with the previous incidents of Jurassic Park now behind him. Grant is that happy that he announce in public, that nothing on Earth can persuade him back onto the islands. Maybe nothing, except Paul Kirby. Kirby and his wife, Amanda want a plane to fly them over Isla Sorna, with Dr. Grant as their guide. But not everything Kirby says is true. When the plane lands, Dr. Grant realizes that there is another reason why they are there, that he doesn't know of. Now, Dr. Grant is stuck on an island he has never been on before, with what was a plane journey now turned into a search party.Written by
The computer-generated Spinosaurus does not correspond with the practical version in terms of size. Compare the shots practical version holding Nash (the black mercenary) in its jaws to the shot of the computer-generated version trapping him under its foot and delivering the final bite. The CG creature looks nearly twice as big as the practical one in that shot. See more »
Here you go, my friend.
Make sure you get as close as you can! I'll give you something extra if you make it a good trip!
Hey, I'm gonna get you close, my friend, but not too close, eh. You don't want to be eaten.

The Roman numeral "III" in the opening title logo is formed by a trio of claw marks. See more »
After the brief encounter with the ceratosaurus, which turns its nose up at the humans and decides not to attack them, Paul Kirby (William H. Macy) says "Can't help but feel a little offended." The line was edited out for it was thought that it was inappropriately "cheesey" for that stage in the narrative. See more »
I went to see JP3 last night to vet it before I take my 6 year old daughter. She is desperate to see it having seen JP and the Lost world and generally loving dinosaurs. I am a great movie fan so have my own opinions on the film but first I'll address the suitability of this movie for young viewers. The original film and Lost World are true 'family movies' containing elements for everyone - decent story, good acting, great (groundbreaking) effects and humour etc. There's nothing wrong with kids being scared periodically, being scared is part of the whole monster movie experience. All that said, JP3 is too 'full on' for one as young as 6 and I think I'll try to get her to wait for DVD, to tone down the whole experience. She saw the first two at home and wont be expecting the sheer sound and visuals of this movie at the cinema. I would advise other parents the same, at least with kids this young.
As for my opinion of the film - well, we've seen it all before. I've read many comments and agree with most. Its lame storyline is its down fall and this could've been so much better. In my opinion a far better film would have carried a 15 certificate at least. One they could have made for adults only, and really explored new territory and therefore could not be compared to the previous two. A huge audience loves scary films and monster movies so why not go for it with a proper modern day horror. Throw in a good conspiracy theory plot about INGEN and some realistic profanity and gut wrenching effects. In short give people what they really want. JP3 does niether for either age group.
For your children, I reccommend the BBC's series 'Walking with Dinosaurs' it's informative and has near the same quality of effects.
See for yourself.
