Some problems that, among other things, would make the film the worst that the dinosaur saga has seen to date. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 12, 2019
Although shorter than its predecessors in both length and budget, the audience is not short changed. Joe Johnston does a respectable job as director, keeping the pace brisk and the action moving.

Jurassic Park III exemplifies Hollywood's standard practice of stomping a brilliant concept beyond recognition.
June 26, 2019
The script, partially written by the team responsible for Election, is lean, tidy, and best of all, negligible--these screenwriters know better than to let the plot obscure the action, and the result is probably the best of the three Jurassic Park films.
June 26, 2019
At its best, it whips itself up into a nice, scary lather, but it shrivels to nothing between the set pieces, in an excess of fog, token bits of talk, and an absence of genuine, elemental awe.
June 26, 2019
Imagine my surprise, then, to find that Jurassic Park III not only beats the first JP and its sequel The Lost World into a cocked pith helmet, but also manages to be a perfectly enjoyable monster movie in its own right.
June 26, 2019
The latest sequel to Steven Spielberg's clever, scary 1993 original is even less necessary than Spielberg's borderline nonsensical (but still pretty entertaining) 1997 follow-up, The Lost World.
June 26, 2019
Despite all its talk of genetic engineering and its deliberately stupid characters, the unintended message of Jurassic Park III is that when it comes to art and entertainment, you can't beat human DNA.

If velociraptors are so smart, why didn't they chomp up the camera before this cinematic clone got loose and sullied their good name?
June 26, 2019
Ptera-fyingly good fun.

June 26, 2019
At 140 million years and counting, the venerable Jurassic franchise is definitely showing signs of age.
June 26, 2019
It's all competently done, but these newly minted dinos are starting to seem kind of prehistoric.
June 26, 2019
Having been through the park on two previous rides, the novelty is now missing and the sublime sense of dread, discovery and excitement of the earlier films is sorely dwindled.

June 26, 2019
Jurassic Park III is not a bad film. In fact, for a sequel ending in III it's a pretty good one.
June 25, 2019
It's familiar ground, but those set pieces (particularly the pterodactyl attack) are excellent, and only the ending seems a little dashed off.

And this sequel to a sequel to another sequel happens right after being born to swell the dump of the Hollywood digital scrap. [Full review in Spanish]
June 24, 2019
[This] sequel isn't terribly frightening or gory, and at times it's even atmospheric. It also has a sense of humor: Tea Leoni's moony reaction shots intentionally send up the glossy idealism of the original.
November 4, 2018
It's a solid bit of summer escapism, and when judged by that standard it holds up just fine.
June 14, 2015
Jurassic Park III ultimately falls right in line with its immediate predecessor...

June 11, 2015
A marked improvement over its immediate predecessor, this film works as a fast and efficient thriller that offers a few great surprises along the way.
