| Not as good as the previous JP's.
Jurassic Park 3 was a shorter and less entertaining of the three. I thought this sequel might be good because JP2 was good but I was wrong! I have picked some notes while watching this movie. Usually Jurassic Park films are 2 hours long, this one is some 40 minutes less! and does not quite contain the same fun and horror it did on previous jp's. DR. Grant returns which is a suprise. It didn't have it's entertaining parts though i must admit. JP3 had amazing special effects, most probably the best out of the three. I have heard that Jurassic Park 4 will be released in 2004. Should I say this one will be a bad sequel as well?

Trivia

During an interview with TVGuide.com during a break in production in mid December 2000, William H Macy was quoted as saying, "There have been all the problems that one thinks of. The script has been evolving and being rewritten as we go, and what you want to say is, 'Who launched a $100 million ship without a rudder, and who's getting fired for this?' But that's the way it goes. That's the way they make these movies... big deal. I think someone should be shot, but I'm not in charge." Later, in March of 2001, during as MSN chat to promote the film, he was quoted as saying, "I think there will be [a further sequel] and I took great pains to drop my wallet on one of those islands, so I have an excuse to go back."


Quotes

Enrique Cardoso: Here you go, my friend.
Ben Hildebrand: Make sure you get as close as you can! I'll give you something extra if you make it a good trip!
Enrique Cardoso: Hey, I'm gonna get you close, my friend, but not too close, eh. You don't want to be eaten.


Goofs

(at around 56 mins) The "metal" wire ropes at the barrier fence where Alan and Eric reunite with rest of the survivors are obviously sash cords spray-painted gray. This is even more apparent when Alan and Eric run through the hole in the fence and the dangling ends of the broken ropes can be seen flopping around as they accidentally make contact with them.


Crazy Credits

During the studio introductions, each logo is accompanied by the "ripple-in-the-water" effect and the sound of a heavy footstep.


Alternate Versions

Don Davis, the music composer for the film, stated that roughly 20 seconds of footage was cut from the battle between the T-Rex and Spinosaurus. This was mostly made up of the two animals roaring at each other and sizing one another up.
