4.0 out of 5 stars PEOPLE, PEOPLE, THIS MOVIE JUST ISN'T ABOUT LEO! C'MON! February 26, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
OK, folks, stick to the program here. I'm tired of reading reviews that doesn't even talk about the movie! Sure Leonardo was in it, but so what? Who gives a care? I know I don't. Critters 3 was an OK movie. Just not enough Critters in it. It's about these new critters that start to hatch and head for aN L.A. apartment building, where there they find "fresh meat". While Ammie and her brother stop at the gas station, they wonder off into the far field. But without watching the brother, he soon wonders off leaning over a short edge cliff, but a kid (Leo) stops him. As they all go off into the woods, a strange man erupts out of the ground, (Don Opper). And there, the critters hatch from under their van as soon as they arrive at the apartment buliding. Charlie McFaddin must help find the critters and help the family before the Krites get to them. Stellar movie, just not enough Critter action in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bunch of fuzzy critters invade a apartment. November 20, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I thought this movie was pretty good. I haven't seen the rest of the critters movies. The only reason I saw this was because I heard Leonardo DiCaprio was in it. After I saw it, I didn't care if Leo was in it or not. I thought the movie was great. This might sound weird, but I kinda thought the critters were cute. The scene where the critters were dancing back and forth with all the flour on them was very funny. I really recomend it. Great job Kristine Peterson!

2.0 out of 5 stars Critters 3 (1991) December 30, 2005
Director: Kristine Peterson

Cast: John Calvin, Aimee Brooks, Christian Cousins, Joseph Cousins, William Dennis Hunt, Nina Axelrod, Leonardo DiCaprio, Don Keith Opper.

Running Time: 86 minutes

Rated PG-13 for violence and mild language.

"Critters 3" starts on the open road as Clifford (John Calvin) his teenage daughter Annie (Aimee Brooks) & his young son Johnny are heading back home from a vacation. Suddenly the tyre on their van blows & they have to stop at a public rest area to fix it. While there Annie and Johnny meet a kid named Josh (Leonardo DiCaprio in his Hollywood debut) who in turn all run into Charlie McFadden (the films co-producer Don Keith Opper) from the previous two "Critters" films. Charlie tells them the story of the Krites and the town of Grovers Bend but they don't believe him, meanwhile back at the van a critter lays some eggs on it's underside, out of sight from everyone. Once Clifford has fixed the tyre the trio set off for their home, a run down urban tenement block in Los Angeles somewhere complete with Critter eggs along for the ride. Upon arrival the eggs hatch & the Critters head straight inside the tenement block quickly disposing of Frank (Geoffrey Blake), the caretaker. As the night draws on the few remaining residents, a fat woman named Rosalie (Diana Bellamy), a telephone repair woman Marsha (Katherine Cortez), an elderly couple Mr. (Bill Zuckert) & Mrs. Menges (Frances Bay) must come together with Clifford & his kids to fight the Critters. Josh also makes an appearance as his Stepfather (William Dennis Hunt) owns the building. But will the group be able to defeat the Critters & prevent themselves from becoming dinner?

3.0 out of 5 stars Get rid of the Charlie character. February 14, 2005
They really should make another CRITTERS movie. With a proper budget, a good script and a dedicated director one solidly entertaining movie could reenergize the whole franchise and take it to a new level. The most important change that needs to be made is you have to get rid of the goofy Charlie character. He was in all four movies and sucked in all four movies. Also make the movies much darker, without so much story and you've got a hit.

As far a Part 3 goes some Krites invade a small apartment building and chase people all around but only kill two people. It's entertaining, but at the same time disappointing. The story goes nowhere, the direction is strictly by the numbers and of course you got the goofy dude showing up and slowing down the story. There is a lot of wasted potential here.

The one and only reason this movie is in my collection is because this is one of the earliest starring roles for Aimee Brooks, who is now legal and very sexy. If you don't believe me just watch MONSTER MAN.

3.0 out of 5 stars Critters 3 August 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Crites have returned, and this time they are taking over a downtown apartment building in the city! Now, the tenants must find a way to destroy the furious fur-balls once and for all along with the help of everyone's favorite intergalactic bounty hunter, Charlie (Don Opper from CRITTERS 1 and 2). CRITTERS 3 holds together perfectly with the same formula and light tone found in the previous two entries. The creature designs are as creepy as ever, this time differentiating a few of the Crites with battle scars to give them more character and personality. While the series has never been known for having huge body counts, there are a decent number of bloody deaths that keep the action steady. CRITTERS 3 is most often remembered for being one of the early film debuts of a young Leonardo DiCaprio, who appears as the son of the evil landlord. Though it may not require much thought to enjoy, this third film still makes for plenty of safe scares and silly monster fun.
