When Speilberg wasn't going to direct this movie I bet people were scared, heck I was too. The first two Jurassic Park were very exciting, and the story was pretty consistent and easy to follow, but something happened in this movie.
First off, they chose the two most annoying characters in what I think in cinema history. The Kirby's were just annoying and it took me away from the movie. Especially the acting from William H Macy and Tea Leoni. I have seen William H Macy in a lot of films and he usually is a very good actor, but here he was terrible. Maybe it was the script? But whatever it was he was horrible, and so was Leoni, the most annoying voice and a very annoying scream, plus her emotion in the film was horrible. Sam Neil on the other hand was very good, and usually is in movies. I also enjoyed watching Alessandro Nivola who played Billy, he wasn't great but was probably the only character I cared about besides Grant.
Another thing that bugged me was the scene when we first see the Kirby's, did anyone else think that was awkward and not played well. I just felt like it was awkward and the writing was terrible, I just felt like OH we need you because we just want you there, couldn't have they done something better than that. Plus the twist that they pull on you a little further was so dumb that I was laughing. There were some very laughable scenes in this movie, which if anyone would want to watch it I would because its so bad that it's laughable in some spots.
Didn't the dinosaurs look a little too much CGI. The first time we see the Spinosaurus did anyone else notice how CGI/mechanical it looked, it really took away from the excitement from the movie. I mean yes the CGI is very different in the 90's but this is about 7 years after the original don't you think the CGI could have been better. Also the T-Rex fight was waaaaaaaay to short. I was like that's it, just that. The T-Rex was the most dominate character in the first two movies, and just like that its dead. I was saying too myself they should have been much more to that fight, much more.
I did think some of the action scenes were pretty cool, especially the bird cage was defiantly a fun scene. Other than that all I cared about was Grant and Billy nothing else really got me into the movie. The acting annoyed me and so did the characters. Hopefully the 4th installment will be worth the wait.
