JURASSIC PARK (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Stars ìììì

Jurassic Park—one of the best movies of 1993—becomes a unique classic from its opening scenes. One of the highest grossing films ever made, it uses the acting talents of Richard Attenborough (John Hammond), known for his direction of Chaplin, Ghandi, and A Bridge Too Far, and for his acting in films such as The Great Escape, Flight of the Phoenix, The Sand Pebbles, and the Rex Harrison version of Doctor Dolittle. This film outstandingly portrays the acting talents of Sam Neill (Dr. Alan Grant, paleontologist), Laura Dern (Dr. Ellie Sattler, paleobotanist), Samuel L. Jackson (Arnold), and Jeff Goldblum (Dr. Ian Malcolm). 

Storyline

Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler get the thrill of their lives when they are introduced to an island park that contains cloned, living dinosaurs. As they tour the park, a computer programmer turns off the electricity that keeps the dinosaurs within safe bounds behind electrical fences. A Tyrannosaurus Rex breaks through the inactivated fence and begins investigation of the spectators by ‘taking out’ a man hiding in an outhouse where he had fled for safety. The creature terrorizes Dr. Grant, Dr. Ian Malcolm, and the rest of the spectators. The story becomes survival of the fittest with the dinosaurs appearing to be the fittest.
