Ok i know Steven Spielberg is one of the best directors, dont get me wrong, but.....this movie is decent in my opinion BUT....it's still a good movie, and in my opinion it's better than JAWS
The characters are also pretty great and the dialogue is amazing.
All in all this movie is pretty great and i give it a 5/5
During the time action packed thriller movies never met in between. It was either too graphic or not graphic enough, but Spielberg found a way to change that. With C.G.I being a new form of technology the graphics on most films during that time were bland and somewhat unrealistic but in this film it was so detailed that it began to open people's minds on things that could be possible if they were to put their minds to it. At the same time this film showed a sense of humanity in a moment of terror. It reminded us that even in the darkest of times, humanism could be the deciding factor of life and death. Overall Steven Spielberg did an excellent job in sharing his imagination with the rest of the world, and by giving the rest of the world-especially children an imagination of their own. So much so that various movies have been made replicating this great movie.
One of Spielberg's finest, Jurassic Park has all the hallmarks of the filmmaker who made Jaws and grew even more in their expertise by the time he retread ground with dinosaurs.
Spotlights are everywhere in this masterful film full of great camera techniques, memorable characters, great visual and aural storytelling, brilliant set design, and of course...those special effects. There's a reason why I make jokes at more modern movies' special effects saying "X years after Jurassic Park". This was 1993. And it made you believe in dinosaurs. I mean, they did exist, but whatever.
In regards to the orchestra that played, it does make one realise that goddamn, they play the main theme a lot. But it's another John Williams masterpiece, so it's fine. It captures everything good about this movie. The joy, the wonder, the adventure.
That's what every subsequent movie in the series lacks. That wonder. The miracle of dinosaurs. It's an amazing incredible thing. It's not meant to be a horror movie. Or a slasher. It just happens to turn out that way. But that's not the focus.
It's not about that. Jurassic Park is about a man who realises he's ready to start a family. That's the good shit. Not T-Rex and Raptor versus fake dinosaur fights.
Spielberg is the master. And goddamn, there will never be a more joyful reveal than the entire "Welcome to Jurassic Park" sequence.
A classic, Jurassic Park is a really good movie, not just in story and execution, but the music, the visual effects and so much more. Steven Spielberg really made some great movies in his prime. John Williams' soundtrack is amazing and memorable. ILM's visual and practical effects work is also astounding, it's just an overall classic.
