John Hammond has developed a dinosaur park (in a very remote Island) using a DNA of a prehistoric dinosaur taken from an ancient insect. In a tour that Hammond makes to a selected audience which suppose to decide whether the park is safe or not safe for public, the security system collapsed, and the dinosaurs set themselves free. Now the selected audience, in the leadership of Doctor Grant and include Doctor Malcolm, Doctor Sattler, Hammond"s grandchildren, and some more has to survive in the Island.
One of the biggest movies of all time, "Jurassic Park" is the story of regenerated dinosaurs. John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) is the owner of a newly developed dinosaur park, but after an employee is killed in an accident he needs to satisfy lawyer"s questions by bringing in a team to prove the park is safe. The team includes dinosaur digger Alan Grant (Sam Neill), his girlfriend, paleontologist Ellie Satler (Laura Dern), mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), and lawyer Donald Gennaro (Martin Ferrero). Another of Hammond"s employees, a computer technician named Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) has been hired by an outside organisation to steal dinosaur embryos.
Based on the Michael Crichton book, the stars of "Jurassic Park" are definitely the dinosaurs. There"s a lot of people who deserve credit for bringing these extinct animals to brilliant on screen life, but the main four are Stan Winston, Michael Lantieri, Dennis Muren, and Phil Tippett. Mixed with some unbelievably great sound effects, these dinosaurs are some of the most stunning visual effects I"ve ever seen and rightfully earned an Academy Award.
The king of the dinosaurs, the T-Rex, was an amazing creature to see, but surprisingly it was outdone by the velociraptors. These raptors provided some very suspenseful moments, and are dinosaurs that people will never forget.
The main complaint I"ve read is that the human characters had no development and that the scenes that didn"t feature dinosaurs were boring. This surprised me since it was directed by Steven Spielberg. In my opinion, they didn"t need to be more developed because "Jurassic Park" is one of those movies that just doesn"t need that much. As for being bored, I never was. I knew it was going to get exciting, and the builp was great thanks in part to the characters, the special effects, and the John Williams score. Unfortunately, the dialogue was cheesy in several spots perhaps explaining why people didn"t like the dino-free scenes.
Watching "Jurassic Park" always takes me back to June the day it opened in theaters. Sitting in that dark theater, I was fully entertained for over two hours. It"s got humor and suspense. Movies like this fuel the imagination and offer an incredibly real looking picture of what dinosaur life was like. It also has a message about science being perverse and going against nature, which seems like a very timely issue with the subject of real life cloning. This movie is 100% fun, and though not the best film of (That goes to "The Fugitive"), it is my favorite movie of the year
