After Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, this is Steven Spielberg's third film in his dinosaur-series. This time, he is only the executive producer. Joe Johnston (October Sky and Jumanji) directs Jurassic Park III. The two first worked together in Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark.
 
If you are looking for subtle acting and an intelligent story, stay away. However, if you want to know what technology can do today, this is the movie to watch. The dinosaur close-ups seem to show living creatures. What an improvement from Jurassic Park I. Only a few scenes with a lot of dinosaurs are less than credible. For the rest, if we did not know that all these species were extinct, we would not know what is real and what is computer-generated by Industrial Light & Magic and which are animatronic dinosaurs created by Stan Winston. Jurassic Park III offers 90 minutes of nonstop, breathtaking action with sensational visual effects. If only the plot...
 
Paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) rapidly overcomes his intention to never go back to a dinosaur-infected island such as Isla Sorna, once InGen's site B, when the wealthy adventurer Paul Kirby (William H. Macy) and his wife Amanda (Téa Leoni) approach him with the proposition to fund research for his new theory of velociraptor intelligence in return for a flight over the island.
 

It quickly becomes clear that the couple are not adventurers who simply wanted to fly over the quarantined island. The pilot actually lands on Isla Sorna. Soon afterwards, they all have to escape a gigantic genetically cloned dinosaur. The pilot is unable to gain altitude and the plane crashes into the jungle.
 
As it turns out, the Kirbys are actually a divorced middle class couple in search of their 14-year-old son Eric (Trevor Morgan) who disappeared while vacationing with Amanda's boyfriend. They overlooked the fact that Grant's prior visit was to Isla Nublar, not Isla Sorna.
 
Now, Alan Grant, his assistant (Alessandro Nivola), the Kirbys and two other men hired for the expedition have to learn firsthand the terrible accuracy of Grant's raptor intelligence theory. Unfortunately, it is quite clear from the beginning who will survive the fight against different types of dinosaurs and who is not needed for the plot and therefore has to die in the jungle of Isla Sorna.
