Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park
  • 1993
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, Wayne Knight

A group of scientists are invited to give their approval to a theme park filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs, but the giant reptiles are soon running amok. Top-notch computer effects ensure that the dinosaurs themselves are terrifyingly believable (more so than the PG certificate would suggest), but by the half-way point, it's more or less a chase movie with superior technology.
