Jurassic Park III Review

“No. Think Bigger.”

May 13th, 2008

A great adventurous flick that ignored the all too general rules of good filmmaking. Seriously, they don't make Jurassic Park movies too often, so it would've been nice to include some more stuff, and I'm not talking action and fights, cuz those were great, but I'm talking more story. The simplicity of it can be appreciated though.

They also could've adapted the Dodgson storyline unused in JP2 to fill in said run time. Would've been interesting. Anyway, Spinosaurus Eugyptigis was indeed a real dinosaur (whose only fossil was bombed out of existence in the battle of Britain in WWII) that was a hunter, while T-Rex was a scavenger (hence the useless tiny arms), and therefore, it's more plausible for Spiny to attack Rex. And sure, they're not from the same time, but In-Gen made them all at once, plus it makes the movie even more adventurous to pit dinos against each other that have never met up in history before. And supplies great visuals of dinos together.

Also, the original had dinos from mostly the Triassic period, and none of the cool ones from the Jurassic period, but the name sounded better.

Good adventurous flick though. A fun ride for JP fans, but not so much if you're used to reading the books and viewing the films with all the techy stuff.

      OMG. This sucks!! I didn't even talk about the movie!! And the stuff about there being no fossils left is outdated now, and was when I submitted this, unbeknownst to me at the time, but I think I gave this one a bit of a bum rap. But one thing's for sure, the face off between Spinosaurus Aegiptiacus and Tyrannosaurus Rex would be ranked the best of televisions: "Jurassic Fight Club!"

        Great review which raises many good points, such as the inGen creations and the awesomeness of seeing two dinosaurs pitted against eachother. Another great review Slysnide!!!!!
