For many fans one of the flaws in the third Jurassic Park film came in the form of most of its supporting human characters. In The Lost World, John Hammond at least bothered to assemble an actual team of experts skilled in their respective fields, and the big game hunter Roland Trembo was surprisingly nuanced. However, in the Jurassic Park III, aside from Dr. Grant most of the humans were almost too dumb to live. The fact that the whole catalyst for the adventure began with someone disobeying a direct order from the governments of the United States of America and Costa Rica and the expressed wishes of
John Hammond to stay away from Site B, is proof of this.
However, nether The Lost World or Jurassic Park III were able to come up with that right winning combination of characters. The Lost World may have had Ian Malcolm, but his warnings weren’t tempered by Grant’s love for dinosaurs. In contrast, the Dr. Grant of Jurassic Park III was a much different man from when he first set foot on the island in the original film. In fact the Jurassic Park franchise wouldn’t see a lead character that could really hold his own, on par with traditional adventure movie heroes until Owen Grady in Jurassic World.
