I liked this DVD. It is too violent for kids to watch. Another batch of hungry dinosaurs wreak havoc with humankind in this third installment. Dr. Alan Grant is persuaded to travel to the site of the second InGen lab and discovers that the velociraptors are more intelligent than anyone thought.

Okay... I've seen this movie 3-4 times now. I just watched the 1st 2 films again & I'm surprised, this one is now my favourite of the 1st three, it wasn't at first viewings; but it grows on you. It's pretty much non-stop action. The dinosaurs are on the prowl & it's one thrill after another. You know when the T-Rex is killed 15 min. in to the movie, things are gonna get wild & crazy. They do. And it's got pterodactyls, enough said. So... do yourself a favor & give this a view. 2 thumbs up!!

I watched the first two movies and I couldn't wait to read this one. In my opinion, these movies are so well made and enjoyable. I love how the characters deal with the dinosaurs. One of the best things about these movies is that anyone and everyone can watch them. In my opinion, these movies are not only enjoyable for kids but adults as well. The characters in this film are portrayed really nicely as well. I love the cinematography as well. I totally recommend this movie to people of all ages. I give this movie a 4.7 out of 5 stars. @terrificbooklover of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Terrible - But still better than the newest one - Jurassic World. I can't imagine any other movie sucking as badly as that one did. Nonetheless - this one was still pretty bad - Knowing that going into it, it may not be that bad for you...

Such a great movie. Now that I look at it when I'm not a little kid anymore, I can tell the animals are animatronic, but nonetheless it is still a classic and beautiful and majestic and heart-warming.

Does anybody who watched it know what happened to the pterodactyls that flew away off the island into the horizon? They never continued that line of story in Jurassic World ;-/

Ridiculously predictable with idiotic characters. Note: Jeff Goldbloom was not in this sequel. The comments I'm reading seem to be about the original movie (which was great) and the 1st sequel (which was not too bad) and not about this movie (which was horrible).

After reading terrible reviews about this movie and hearing about it from a friend, i decided not to see it. However, a few years later my curiosity got the best of me when i saw it for $4.99 at a store while standing on line. Perhaps no other beast besides Godzilla and Cloverfield had my two subwoofers and my HOMETHEATER producing serious bass more than the (spinasaurus egypticus, i think that's how you spell it) very large dinosaur with the sail on it's back in this movie. One of my favorite scenes is when the small plane crashes in the jungle and the large beast begans walking towards the plane. This was a great introduction of what was to come. Another great scene for sound was the battle between the T.Rex and the large dinosaur. That scene was "Sound Freak" approved. I especially liked the sound of bones snapping when it grabbed the T. Rex by the throat. It's mouth was huge!! Also, the sounds of the Raptors was very good when they were chasing the passengers in the abandoned lab. I was kind of hoping for more sound effects from the flying dinosaur, but the large beast was definately the star. After a while, i sort of over looked the story and became interested in the sound only. And it delivered well. This will stay in my collection along with the first two Jarassic Park movies. I'm giving this movie 3 and half stars. For great sound effects, very good visual effects, an ok story, and hoping that they do well with Jarassic Park 4. Large ribs soaked in barbeque sauce, crinkle cut fries, Arizona Kiwi/Strawberry, and plenty of napkins.

Eric: "I read your books. I liked the first one best. The one before you went to Jurassic Park. You actually liked dinosaurs then." Dr. Grant: "Yes that was before one tried to EAT me."

Dr. Grant: On this island there is no such thing as safe.
