Almost everything that could've gone wrong on a sequel goes disasterously wrong on JP3. The movie starts when the dinosaurs are back on their island in the Pacific Ocean a hundred miles west of Costa Rica and are thriving on that island and humanity is safe from them. However, a pair of skydiving parachuters are lost and stranded on the island and one loses his life but the other is alive and on the island in danger of being killed by the veloceraptors and a team of scientists are sent in to find and rescue the young boy before it's too late.
Everything from there just dissolves in lousy dialogue and weak acting by the entire cast. Even before then, the whole story plot wouldn't have a chance of going anywhere even if the acting were good because the writers who wrote the script really dropped the ball with this p&*s-poor excuse for a movie. Joe Johnston's directing, which tries to match what Stephen Spielberg does, completely falls flat on it's face and the directing is very weak and it sinks an already bad movie. He would however bounce back with "Hidalgo" three years later.
The acting by the entire cast is just awful. The characters in the first JP movie were really excellent and funny and showed a lot of personality, whether it's fun and thrill of seeing real-life dinosaurs on a tourist attraction, or terrorized when the carnivorous raptors rampage on the island endangering the lives of the tourists.Read more ›
