Jurassic Park III

The second sequel to the 1993 blockbuster, "Jurassic Park" certainly improves on the first sequel, "The Lost World," but it is still nothing great. Sam Neill returns (who wasn't in "The Lost World") and is tricked back onto that dino island by a bickering couple. There, they are trying to see if a lost young boy who accidentally became stranded on that island is still alive. Of course, they have trouble staying alive themselves; damn dinosaurs. It relies too heavily on cheap thrills and there's not nearly enough adventure, which is what made the original so wonderful.
