While not as good as Jurassic Park it's still decent. 7/10
I still stand as the first one was the best. Second one was so so. However this one wasn't needed.
I really did like this movie but it wasn't the best as it could've been. Hopefully everything is set for # 4.
Not seeing any of the other Jurassic Park movies, this one surprised me. This movie was really good, thrilling and adventurous.

The good news is that, despite the absence of Steven Spielberg behind the camera, Jurassic Park III is about as entertaining and inventive as Spielberg's 1997 film The Lost World: Jurassic Park. The bad news is that that film wasn't particularly entertaining or inventive, and neither is this one. Considering that The Lost World: Jurassic Park already seemed stale, it would be quite unreasonable to expect anything new to be offered by Jurassic Park III, which is nothing more than another film that strings together sequences of dinosaur attacks. The sad reality is that we have seen pretty much all there is to see when it comes to the world of Jurassic Park, and even Spielberg's 1993 film, while supremely entertaining and majestic, suffered from a lack of imagination concerning how to treat the wonder of dinosaurs. Jurassic Park III is just as content to let the dinos be nothing more than monsters who attack cardboard human characters, but unfortunately, director Joe Johnston doesn't have as much of a sense of pacing as Spielberg. The plot concerns a wealthy couple (played by William H. Macy and Tea Leoni) who ask Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) to join them on an expedition to yet another research lab that was breeding dinosaurs (how many more of these "forgotten" labs will pop up in subsequent sequels?). However, the wealthy couple has an ulterior motive...they are trying to find their 14 year-old son, who is lost on the island. The plot of the film is not very important, considering that the screenwriters would happily come up with any excuse to fill another film with scenes of dinosaurs jumping out of corners to frighten (or attack) the humans. Basically, the only way to fairly evaluate Jurassic Park III is to look at the skill and imagination displayed in the scenes involving the dinosaurs. There are certainly some thrilling moments: the slow buildup to the revelation of a pterodactyl is masterfully executed, and is easily one of the best scenes in the film. Yet Jurassic Park III is eventually so tired and familiar, it is impossible to enjoy even on the level of simple entertainment. Macy, Neill and Leoni are completely wasted, and don't have much of a chance to create characters we care about. By the time Jurassic Park III lumbers to an end, we may have mildly enjoyed this mediocre fare, but it is very clear that the series is as extinct as the dinosaurs that populate it.
