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.

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.

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.

Ptera-fyingly good fun.

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.

[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.

Jurassic Park III ultimately falls right in line with its immediate predecessor...

November 5, 2008
An efficient and surprisingly palatable finale to the Jurassic franchise.
February 9, 2006
True, the film offers little new, but it's still stirring family entertainment.
January 15, 2005
It's not art ... it's entertainment, and it knows it. Boy, does it entertain.

If you're looking for a tight script, interesting three-dimensional characters and something new with this movie, you will be disappointed.

June 25, 2004
For a sequel with a Roman numeral in the title, Jurassic Park III is more entertaining than expected.

People who go to see Jurassic Park III are not there for character development, they want cool-looking dinosaurs, and that they will get in spades.

For those who vehemently debate whether a Spinosaurus can outfight a T-Rex, this movie will comfortably pass your time -- or devour it.

JP3 is not as intricate or as new as the original, nor as howlingly elaborate as the sequel, but in its own formulaic way, it's a nice little thrill ride that achieves what it's designed for.
