| Life finds a way...
''Life, uh... finds a way.''

One of the best & most iconic movie quotes of all times.

I don't know what can I say about this movie that hasn't been said. Really...

Considering this movie was made in 1993, visual effects are of incredible quality, as you see it better on blu-ray. When it comes to story, it's completely original, nearly flawless. I can't say too much about the acting. I believe acting is not the movie's strongest point. But still, it was enough for that movie. You don't need to be like Marlon Brando in a sci-fi movie about dinosaurs and has great visual & sound effects. The movie is very fun to watch.

I also sensed a small message like, ''don't mess with nature''.

Best thing about the movie (for me) was the score. Especially the ''Welcome to Jurassic Park'' scene. Of course we're talking about John Williams, the guy who wrote the theme for Star Wars, so that's not a surprise.

Highly recommend it.

Trivia

The Triceratops scene was a major operation. Most of the dinosaur scenes were shot on soundstages, but Steven Spielberg wanted this scene shot on-location in Hawaii. The puppeteers loved this decision because the dust and the dirt tied it into the environment. It was also the first dinosaur the actors and actresses saw. They were blown away by its realism. Stan Winston's team dug a hole beneath the puppet and eight puppeteers below operated cables and push-rods. The backside of the Triceratops had a door with three or four men inside. The only one of the actors not impressed was Joseph Mazzello, because the first dinosaur he got to see up close didn't do anything. To get the Triceratops to breathe, Gary Rydstrom blew into a toy called a "zube tube" to add the harmonics.


Quotes

Worker in Raptor Pen: Everybody, heads up! Heads up! Keep clear! Keep it clear! Okay, down! Andale, si! Vamonos. Keep it goin'! Come on! That's good, stay! Slow it down. No lo vayan a tirar! Cuidado! Traigala, traigala!
Muldoon: Okay, pushing team, move in there.
Worker in Raptor Pen: Move it! Cuidado...


Goofs

The little boy who annoys Grant at his dig site starts by saying that the Velociraptor skeleton doesn't look very scary. The boy is at most five feet tall, and the monitor is surrounded by a crowd of adults, so he couldn't have seen it.


Crazy Credits

The closing shot of the helicopter flying towards the horizon forms an initial backdrop for the end credits.


Alternate Versions

The mainland Chinese release of the 3D version (the original version was not released there) deletes the following:

  • The goat chunk splattering against the tour jeep and Lex's subsequent reaction.
  • Gennaro in the T-Rex's mouth.
  • Dr. Satler's discovery of Arnold's severed arm.
  • The raptor pouncing on Muldoon.
