Like Jaws before it, this is classic Spielberg. The opening scene doesn't reveal the man-eating dinosaur, yet unseen terror unfolds with the first human casualty. I'd forgotten how scary this movie was when I first saw it fourteen years ago with my ten year son. I know, bad parent, but I must have done something right since we both enjoyed jumping out of our seats at the newly renovated Big Newport Theater Thursday night. We are both eagerly looking forward to the viewing the upcoming Transformer and Stardust, which previewed at the end of Jurassic Park.

Brilliant craftwork. Shows coming of age marriage of robotics and other new technologies to seamlessly create an environment of adventure and realism.

Back when movies used animatronics and puppet where still the driving force of special effects, this movie truly made a historically convincing attempt at giant moving dinosaurs. Of course, some archaic computer artwork was used, but for the most part, not overtly.
