Basically, I'd say that JPIII was to JP what Jaws 3-D was to Jaws: in other words, one of the worse movies ever made in the history of cinema (IMHO).
...same old twee storyline about divorced parents and the all-American family, same old utterly absurd depictions of animal behaviour. All in all, typical modern Hollywood nonsense.
Indeed Darren, but considering that conservatives are trying to pass bills in the American Congress for the return of creationism using as an excuse the song "You and me baby ain'tnothing but mammals so let's do it like they do in the Discovery Channel!" (...and also a bill against condoms and promoting abstinence as the valid way of Family Planning as reported by the Herald Tribune yesterday!) , effectively trying to turn the clock back 200 years... well, they (we?) must have a bigger, global problem there and the new Jurassic Park captures well the mediocrity of the moment.
Again right to the point. If anyone wants to really know how BAD is the JP3 Spinosaurus reconstruction, just have a look at the new Berislav Krzic Dinopress article on Spinosaurus and its graphic comparison between those incredibly narrow and delicate spinosaurid snouts. Excellent source.
I also was unimpressed with the CGI: not only were some of the animals innaccurate (e.g. spinosaur with lacrimal horns and overly long forelimbs), some of the animation was genuinely very very bad.
If you looked carefully at the three brachiosaurs which approached the boat (also the ankylosaurs at the riverside), the animation and rendering were awful - more like WWD than JP! Many of the animals looked way too glossy for their environments
I call it the New Wallpaper Dinosaur Syndrome. Once you have seen one... you have seen all!
