    The weakest part of the three. Must be the story, because I like Sam Neill and I like the effects, but I just was not entertained at all. 8 years 4 months ago

    Who thought it was a good idea to make Jurassic Park III so desaturated and low contrast? We're running through lush jungles and everything looks sandy brown. In a franchise that trades on the wonder of seeing photo-real dinosaurs, I must say that is a spectacular mistake, and saps all the excitement out. The dinosaurs look matte and lifeless, and the action scenes murky. At least Sam Neill is back in this one, and in an unfortunately small role, so is Laura Dern. A couple rope Dr. Grant into going to the second island to find their young stranded son (I'm telling you, BUOYS!!!) and what follows is kind of the same old routine with a bigger predator and smarter raptors. All these films, though billed as creature features, are really disaster films, and that comes with a certain formula, though in this case, greed only seems to be a major driving force, but really isn't. That's something. Still, I find it particularly ridiculous that on the one hand, the film agrees that dinosaurs aren't LIKE that because Hammond generically engineered "iconic dinosaurs", not the real thing, but also makes Grant seriously theorize that velociraptors were well on their way to sentience when the asteroid struck. In this one, they have a LANGUAGE. So yeah. Much could have been forgiven if Linda Park had had more than one line. Alas. 2 years ago
