Dinosaurs, what else can you say. When you combine dinosaurs with a great plot, you get an instant classic! They didn't really include any dinosaurs that nobody knew about, for instance: Monolophosaurus, or technosaurus. But, then again, if they would have strayed away from the Tyrannosaurus, cause you have to have a T-Rex, the movie would not be as popular.
The Dilophosaurus is not scientificly correct, nor are the velociraptors. But almost nobody knew what a Dilophosaurus was until Jurassic Park came out. The special effects are still pretty cool and the acting isn't bad, this is personally one of my favorite movies.
I'm going to do the entire Jurassic Park series, so check JP 2, JP 3, and yes, JW 1.

Content is interesting but the "expert" author manages to make it boring and complicated through overuse of metaphors, wordiness and hyperboles.
Maybe something got lost in translation from German....

rewatched this (after 20 years). I had forgotten a lot of the story, but enjoyed it. I remember, 20 years ago, the special effects being fantastic.....however, times have moved on. But the story was as great as ever.

Jurassic Park is a suspenseful thrill-ride that keeps you on the edge of you seat through the whole movie. Great film, great soundtrack and especially great special effects. The mix of CG and animatronics work very well. Rewatching it, you can tell the CG in places, but it still holds up very well. Although, the movie isn't quite as good as the book, it's still the best of the Jurassic films.

The author is a m a z i n g and so are the movie adaptations. Not for the faint of heart or those without a sense of adventure or humour!

After watching Jurassic World, I wanted to watch Jurassic Park again. I was expecting to be disappointed but it still kept me on the edge of the seat like when I first watched this as a child.

I watched it as a child and was thrilled. But I thought I got over Jurassic Park. I watched it again and I was still thrilled.

John Hammond: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but, John, if The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.

John Hammond, a rich man, hires a company ( Ingen ) and makes a dinosaur theme park. His team Extracts Blood from a mosquito inside a piece of amber and uses that dinosaurs' blood that contains many dinosaur DNA and makes many dinosaurs. Then one day, a worker for Ingen ( Dennis Nedry ) makes a deal with a man named Lewis Dodson who says they can both be rich if Nedry steals some frozen dinosaur embryos. So Nedry shuts down the whole park and takes the embryos. While he trys, he soon gets eaten by a dinosaur ( dilophosaurus ) and soon all of the dinosaurs in jurassic park are roaming free.
