Depends on how you want to see this film, for me I enjoyed the darker grittier look and a sway away from the sciency stuff. If this was a b-movie stuff, I think the movie would have gathered more praise, but laying it beside the magic that is Jurassic Park (1993). This movie does not meet up.

The problem is the lack of creativity in the plot, and that made the movie at times seem like the same old ride. It may be because Steven Spielberg did not direct this one but served as executive producer. Or maybe it is because it is the franchise's first film to not be based on a novel by Michael Crichton. Whichever it was this movie failed to match the level of awe and surprise like the first film and we were drop in a search and rescue.

This third installment on the franchise following the success of The Lost World, did not meet up to the financial figure Universal would have wanted. Is why I believe there is a fourteen-year gap between this and Jurassic World (2015). Universal wanted to make sure this movie could pull as much influence as the previous two. Especially pull as much audience as Jurassic Park (1993), because they brought back Sam Neill and Laura Dern into this movie, with the later having only a few screen time with the movie focusing on Alan’s adventure on the second island where dinosaurs were being cloned.

The plot shows us two people gliding with the aid of a boat. A man named Ben and a young man named Eric, the boat was attacked by dinosaurs and the two were blown off to the Island where dinosaurs were formally being cloned.

Dr Alan (Sam Neill) is coerced to take a couple on an expedition trip on the island, but unknown to him the couple lied and wanted to use the opportunity with him as a guide to find their son. Alan was against them landing on the island, he was knocked out and came to with them on the island and the woman (Téa Leoni) screaming her head off for her son. Alan asks them to stop, but too late. They were attacked and the plane got damaged. Now being chased and losing people on the way, they must find their way back to the coast and try to get help before they are eaten by these creatures.

The movie is worth seeing if you want to watch all the Jurassic movies from start to finish, but for me only Jurassic Park (1993) is worth having a repeat viewing.
