- Synopsis / Plot
- Dr. Alan Grant is now a happy man with the previous incidents of Jurassic Park now behind him. Grant is that happy that he announce in public, that nothing on Earth can persuade him back onto the islands. Maybe nothing, except Paul Kirby. Kirby and his wife, Amanda want a plane to fly them over Isla Sorna, with Dr. Grant as their guide. But not everything Kirby says is true. When the plane lands, Dr. Grant realizes that there is another reason why they are there, that he doesn't know of. Now, Dr. Grant is stuck on an island he has never been on before, with what was a plane journey now turned into a search party.

- Critics' reviews
"Not as awe-inspiring as the first film or as elaborate as the second, but in its own B-movie way, it's a nice little thrill machine."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"When a cell-phone gag is the most exciting or inventive thing in a big summer dinosaur movie, you have to wonder if the species might not be ready for extinction."
Marjorie Baumgarten: Austin Chronicle
"Another of many recent Hollywood plotless wonders."
Michael Wilmington: Chicago Tribune
"Fast and funny and brings back some of the wonder to the series."
Stephanie Zacharek: Village Voice
"What makes it worth sitting through is the chance it offers to catch up on the technical advances since the last installment."
Jay Carr: Boston Globe
"Has no pretentions to be anything more than a goose-bumpy fantasy theme-park ride for kids, but it's such a routine ride."
Owen Gleiberman: Entertainment Weekly
"The story's tired, as are the main characters."
Rita Kempley: The Washington Post
