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
(at around 11 mins) Dr. Grant's brown truck with the Museum of the Rockies and Montana State University logos on it was based on the vehicle that belonged to Dr. Jack Horner, paleontologist consultant on the Jurassic Park movies, as well as the man on whom the character of Grant is based. It was a difficult and time consuming process to find an exact match of Dr. Horner's truck to be used in the movie. See more »
(at around 41 mins) When the protagonists are in the Embryonics Administrations buildings and chased by a velociraptor, they pull (slam) a door closed. However, in the next second the velociraptor pushes the door open towards them. Then they swing it backwards towards the velociraptor. The mechanics of the door change between shots. 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 opening credits of "Universal Pictures Presents" and "An Amblin Entertainment Production" and then the title "Jurassic Park III" don't appear until right when the end credits are done. See more »
Don Davis, the music composer for the film, stated that roughly 20 seconds of footage was cut from the battle between the T-Rex and Spinosaurus. This was mostly made up of the two animals roaring at each other and sizing one another up. See more »

Has it's heart in the right place but it's with a doubt the weakest entry in the series.
It's hard to really put this movie down cause despite it's problems and there is many, it has it's heart in the right place. The aim I guess that the people behind the scenes were aiming for was a family movie with a bit of suspends and while there is a family movie to be had here, it also tries to be a Jurassic Park film and unfortunately it fails as both to a degree.
It fails as a family movie cause the script is not strong enough to support the story. Despite the venom thrown at William H Macy and especially Tea Leoni, both are very appealing actors and they do work hard to make it all work but the script just handicap their efforts to make it possible. It fails as a Jurassic Park film cause it lacks the tension, suspense and the story points that made the first two films in the series ( Jurassic Park And The Lost World) so well made and memorable. Not to mention the fact that they felt like fully formed movies with a beginning, middle and end. Jurassic Park 3 just feels like a Saturday morning serial. Not bad but nothing like the other films in the series. There is one scene in the film that almost manages to bring a little tension which is the bird cage scene but even that ends up flat compared to any of the scenes in the other films of the series. The other major problem is the fact that While Sam Neill works his ass off to make this film watchable, the script does the most disservice to the character of Alan Grant, whose happy ending from the original Jurassic Park was not only ruined thanks to this movie but has his character dumb down in order to fall for the dumb stuff that happens in this film. Despite all of this, Sam Neill is working overtime to make you care. Too bad the script did not.
As I said before, it has a lot of heart thanks to it's actors but thanks to a bad script, Jurassic Park 3 is with out a doubt the weakest entry in the series.
