Just keep in mind that the Perfection they refer to in the title is the town rather than a judgement about this film. Anyways gun enthusiast, hunter and grumpy cuss Burt Gummer returns to his hometown in Nevada to discover that the townsfolks have turned it into a tourist traps. There are lots souvenirs and even a fake Graboid safari type tour done by a guy named Jack. It’s been eleven years since the events of the first film. A real Graboid does show up and kill Jack’s assistant as the fake tour becomes real. Burt determines there are three Graboids in the area. Just when they begin to take action a government group shows up saying the Graboids are endangered and cannot be killed. Jack makes a deal with them that if they can capture one they can kill the other two. Burt’s itchy trigger finder hates this idea, but he agrees. They soon discover that there is a new stage of the creatures that they dub “assblasters” of their flying methods. They also run an albino Graboid they call El Blanco. Using explosives, mattresses and other stuff the residents of the town defeat the monsters. They capture an assblaster and let El Blanco go because of the endangered species stuff. Roll the credits.

The negatives-The early 2000’s CGI (and not high budget even by standards of that time) doesn’t hold up well today.  While the film starts strong it quickly falls into to being somewhat of the same old thing. I kind of like that there are more characters here than in the second film, but you don’t get know them all that well in this film.

The positives- Burt Gummer takes over as the main character in this series and that’s fine with me. I love the parts about the townspeople trying to cash in on the  Graboids and the fake safaris. The action if mostly good.

Much like the second film this one repeated parts of the first more than adding a whole lot to the series. It’s above average and maybe just a hair better than the second movie.

Ten things I learned from Jurassic Park 3

imagesCUAS7DYU jp3 JP3 images9OUKCL3M jpp

1-Don’t go parasailing near a dinosaur infested island-bad idea.

2-Don’t trust mercenaries that you hired off some ad.

3-If you are getting paid for something that sounds funny then get your payment in cash instead of a worthless check.

4-Yelling out loud for someone on a dinosaur infested island is never a good idea.

5-Every boy seems to have read Dr. Grant’s books.

6-Stealing Raptor eggs can be both bad and good at the same time, who knew?

7-If you enter a big birdcage then you may run into big birds or pterodons.

8-If you dig in dino poo you will eventually find what you are looking for.

9-Taking swimming lessons will help you lose weight and prepare you for fighting dinosaurs.

10-It’s always good to have a friend that will call in the in the military to get you off a dinosaur infested island.

 

The negatives-This film has any many annoying characters as it does good ones. Too many actions or pieces seem to fall in to place so easily in this film.

The positives-Overall I liked the dinosaurs and the action of this film. The return of Sam Neil as Dr. Grant was a huge plus. The settings as with all the films were strong.

I may be in the minority but I liked this film and I actually like it better than the second film.
