Jurassic Park Iii (Full Screeen
You could call this collector's edition "How to Build a Better Dinosaur Movie." The "making-of" overview, a general overview for the casual viewer, just scratches the surface of this virtual dinosaur dig. "A Visit to ILM" takes the viewer step by step through the digital effects process, from concept to completed film, and "A Tour of Stan Winston's Studio" shows the construction of models and full-sized dinosaurs in a brief montage. Three "Behind the Scenes" featurettes pull back the curtain to illustrate the marriage of physical effects and digital animation with the performers. Once you've sampled the documentaries, switch on the film's commentary and review the film with four of the film's effects engineers as they discuss their handiwork in a revealing shot-by-shot dissection. Their pride in the work is palpable, and deservedly so. Paleontologists are using these animated creatures as working models in modern dinosaur research. --Sean Axmaker

The plane crashes and Alan finds himself back in the same situation he's been trying so hard to forget: being trapped in Jurassic Park.
Sam Neill as Alan Grant is one of my favorite performances ever. There's such an air of seriousness and intensity that Sam brings to the role every time. He can be funny, sure, but his character presentation commands a respect from his fellow actors that you don't see that often in film.
William H. Macy, another favorite of mine, plays Paul Kirby, the bumbling yet-trying-to-be-cool dad. Terrific. He was serious, clumsy, just fantastic. Every film Macy's in has never let me down and this movie delivers a wonderful Macy performance. There's something about the pacing of his line delivery that gets to me, too. It's a guy who's insecure but tries his best to put a confident spin on things no matter what.
The dinosaurs, as always, look real. They're huge, they're scary, they're loud. The only problem with these Jurassic sequels is the dinosaurs aren't new and terrifying anymore. They were in the first movie, not so much now. However, there are a few dino attacks in Jurassic Park 3 that weren't in the others, making the viewing of this film worthwhile.
Michael Jeter (The Green Mile), Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), John Diehl (Pearl Harbor) and Téa Leoni (A League of Their Own) also star.
Language warning: Cursing and blasphemy
This movie was all about action, and there wasn't much science stuff involved. The story is pretty simple, and there were some wacky part in this movie.
The raptors were radically changed; now they have feathers pointing out of their heads, there heads were a bit longer, and some part of them near their heads is PURPLE AND BLUE. I AM NOT JOKING. It looks dumb, and takes away from the movie. When I saw it, I'm just like, "What the crap is that??" Weird.
Another thing, the second movie was on Isla Sorna, and there was no sightings or mention of a Spinosaurus. Don't get me wrong, the Spinosaurus is my fave dinosaur in the JP series. That just seemed weird.
All in all, a great movie. A ton of fun, and it rocks. Buy the whole JP series, trust me, you'll like every single one!!!!
Return to the action-packed world of prehistoric dinosaurs in `Jurassic Park III' where man is up against dangerous predators in the ultimate battle for survival. Adventure runs wild when renowned palaeontologist Dr. Alan Grant [Sam Neill] agrees to accompany a wealthy couple [William H. Macy and Téa Leoni] on an aerial tour of Isla Sorna, off of Central America's Pacific coast, the island featured in the second film, the former breeding ground for prehistoric creatures. After they are terrifyingly stranded, Dr. Alan Grant soon discovers that his hosts are not what they seem and the island's native inhabitants are smarter, faster, fiercer and more brutal than he ever imagined. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, this visually stunning blockbuster features all-new dinosaurs and special effects that you need to see to believe and they are Ankylosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Compsognathus, Corythosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Pteranodon, Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus and Velociraptor.

The characters really don't have much development in the film which is okay considering you came to see Dinosaurs. But there is just enough character development for the moviegoer to understand each character.
My only gripes are with the film that it just seemed like the Dino action seemed to go downhill as the movie progressed. It starts off very well with the Spinosaurus attacking the plane and then eventually battling Tyrannosaurus (which I was hoping wouldn't show up until the final minutes of the film, giving it a climatic ending). After that, the Dinos seemed kinda sparse and the action shorter and shorter. The raptors also kinda got old. Like with T-rex, the filmmakers should have replaced the raptors with other Dinos. Maybe Baryonyxs? Also some science is forgotten in this film. But they had Jack Horner as their Dino supervisor, so it was a given some wrenches would be thrown in the mix. Also, the film seemed really short. With some newer dinos added to the screen that have never been seen before, I was hoping that they would have some pretty nifty Dinosaur battle sequences and Dinosaur-human encounters.
All in all, while JP/// was, somewhat, of a letdown for me, it still provided the goods for the most part.
