The dinosaurs are jumping, but the story isn't in Jurassic Park III

At its best Jurassic Park III is eerily similar to some of the more recent dinosaur-themed video games on the market. Scenes set in an abandoned science facility could have been taken straight out of Capcom's Dino Crisis. And a sequence in which a character must jump across several stone pillars protruding high from a body of water and immersed in mist are a direct crib from the N64 hit Turok. It should be noted that, like those games, this film may not be suitable for very young viewers: One scene in which a child is nearly pecked to death by baby pteranodons is particularly likely to inspire nightmares.
