A real rarity: a blockbuster that balances character and emotion with action and spectacle, and a 'science goes wrong' movie that doesn't disrespect the discipline and maintains its sense of wonder and its message about the importance of knowledge.

The greatest movie ever made.
½ January 1, 2018
With one of the most iconic and "game-changing" visual effects, this film has FANTASTIC moments of suspense, it's extremely scary, and some of the scenes are masterfully done. One flaw though is the technology: it's very dated.

The book's the masterpiece, but the movie is still a lot of fun.

Theatrical Masterpiece. Action Movie Adventure at its finest.

What can I say about this movie that hasn't been said? Every scene is beautiful and immersing. The acting and storytelling is top notch, and by the end of the movie, you feel attached to all the characters. It's the perfect blend of charming humour, adventure, horror, and irony that all combine to create a thrilling experience. And we can't talk about the movie without mentioning it's iconic score and its memorable quotes that one will never forget. Scientific problems aside, the movie stands as one of the best book-to- film adaptations ever, but on it's own it is equally brilliant. On the odd chance you've never seen this movie, do yourself a favor and watch it now.

A thrilling blockbuster for everyone to enjoy. From dinosaurs for little kids, to a classic plot for adults, Spielberg has made it possible for anyone to enjoy this movie. One of the Spielberg's best movies!

El error de la audiencia que vio esta película fue pensar que Spielberg quiso mostrar monstruos para causar sorpresa; lo cierto es que es una combinación de Ciencia y Filosofía que hacen de esta una de las mejores obras de Spielberg.

Knocking It Out of the Park

It's been 25 years since Spielberg's dino saga changed movie making with it's fabulous CGI monsters. Amazingly, they still hold up and look great. But what makes JP a 5* effort is the amazing suspense and technically great film making.

Based on a script by Michael Crichton and David Koepp from the novel by Crichton, it starts off a bit slow, but the moment Nedry the computer nerd (Wayne Knight, unforgettable) turns off the power so that he can steal some dino embryos, the film pulsates with pace, aggression and genuine terror. The archeologist protagonist, Sam Neil, goes on a journey of self discovery to become the ideal father - by saving the awful John Hammond's (Richard Attenborough) grandchildren from Hammond's dino creations. Some critics criticised Spielberg for only killing off the minor characters while providing plot armour for the leads and the children - but imagine what the movie would have been like if the dinos were allowed to feast on Laura Dern or the poor kids. It would have been totally uncommercial and a much worse story. Instead, the kids in peril make the best suspense, whether trapped in the SUV while the T-Rex attacks, or the kitchen scene with the Velociraptors. These are great scenes, and there is enough blood shed in the dino eating scenes to satisfy all but the most gruesome tastes.

Not enough credit goes to the cast - of course Neil is solid, Dern is feisty, Attenborough full of remorse, Jeff Goldblum is fantastic, his barbed scepticism and wit makes the whole thing resonate and still relevant.

And George Lucas's ILM provide the special effects, the first really fabulous CGI, to lift the dinos from lumps of plastic to really scary monsters. There is seamless integration between the real and CGI in this that makes his Star Wars prequels look so disappointingly unreal. But here, they are fantastic.

Hats off to Speilberg, the greatest film storyteller of the late 20th and early 21st Century. This really is one of his suspense masterpieces and a beacon of bravura filmmaking.

One of Steven Spielberg's absolute best, Jurassic Park has so many terrific reasons to be praised that it is just flat out unreal.

Jurassic park is an astonishing success for film, introducing amazing CGI bringing the dinosaurs to life! With a story that is this good for the understanding of dinosaurs and computer generation.

This film has everything. Action, tense scenes, great acting, and great cgi. Despite being made over 20 years ago, the dinosaurs still look better then much of today's cgi. The plot is about a group of people going to an island with live dinosaurs. But some of the workers are trying to smuggle embryos off the island and they turn off the power releasing all the dinosaurs. The survivors then have to make it off the island before they get killed. This movie has dozens of memorable scenes which are too many to name all of them but the most memorable for me is when we first see the T-Rex destroy the car. The movie actually explains why the dinosaurs exist and it explains how they made them. Even though this can't happen in reality, it's always impressive for sci-fi films to have the plot have believable elements. Realism isn't necessary but it does make them more interesting to me. The 2nd and 3rd movies weren't that good compared to this one but "Jurassic World" might be the one that brings back the charm of the original one. This is an outstanding movie and every sci-fi fan needs to see this.

I would argue (and I'm willing to fight anyone on this) that the scene where the t-rex first escapes its enclosure is one the greatest of all time. The CGI is so impressive that it stands the test of time. The effects in this movie are more realistic than most movies made today, and, in fact, they look a lot better than Jurassic World. You can't consider yourself a cinephile if you haven't seen this movie
