Jurassic Park (1993)


Movie Review

Directed by: Steven Spielberg

Starring: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Richard Attenborough

John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) has just completed a historic endeavor.  Using DNA from prehistoric insects, he clones a once-extinct life form- the dinosaurs.  With these prehistoric creatures, he launches Jurassic Park.  Naturally, one of his workers gets mauled by a dinosaur.  Hammond and his attorney invite several scholars—Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), and Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern)—to evaluate the safety of the facilities.  When the power goes out at Jurassic Park because of a severe storm, these scientists are anything but safe with creatures like the Tyrannosaurus and Velociraptors on the prowl.  Anybody who saw this film during its box office run has not forgotten the moment the Tyrannosaurus arrived on screen.  It was true movie magic.  It was one of the most suspenseful moments ever on the big screen.  Jurassic Park is a visually stunning sci-fi adventure.  Spielberg’s larger-than-life hit is equally majestic and exhilarating.  Spielberg gives us memories that will last a lifetime in this film.  For this, it gets a sober rating.
