Great Movie! One of Spielberg's best
Wow! That's about all one can say about this movie. The first time that I saw it I was mesmerized. The movie looked so cool and hey, it actually had a good plot. If you haven't seen this movie yet, get out from your cave and see it right away. I have seen this movie umpteen times and it still shocks and suprises me. If you have a DVD player I suggest that you buy the Jurassic Park 2 pack as soon as possible. The movie sounds and looks great, and the extras are cool too. So to summarize go see this. Spielberg is a true genius. Almost all of his movies were great. 10/10!

Trivia

James Cameron has stated that he wanted to make this movie, but the rights were bought "a few hours" before he could bid. Upon seeing this movie, Cameron realized that Spielberg was the better choice to direct it, as his version would've been much more violent ("Aliens (1986) with dinosaurs") which "wouldn't have been fair" to children, who relate to dinosaurs. The visual effects were directly influenced by Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).


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

In the first scene where the Ford Explorers pull up and Mr. Hammond brags about the cars, the boy Tim climbs inside and if you look closely you can see there is no seat belts in the vehicle. The restraints were cut because the vehicle could not be involved in a traffic collision due to the track system. Then, when the T. rex flips the Explorer over, the kids do no fall from their seats because they were wearing some sort of restraints.


Crazy Credits

When it says "A Steven Spielberg film" at the end of the movie, listen closely. You will hear the slightly modified five tones from Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977).


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.
