This is a movie about the futile attempt of man to contain the things he cannot control. The film is set on a fictional island off the coast of Costa Rica where a billionaire philanthropist and a small team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of cloned dinosaurs. The movie was a spectacular visual masterpiece by an extremely talented director, Steven Spielberg. He properly executes what he is trying to convey through the movie. That dinosaurs are extinct, and no matter how much humans try to resurrect the once glorified creatures, it is impossible. Even if it was possible it would create an imbalance in nature. There have been 65 million years of evolution between the dinosaurs and humans. So it wouldn’t be a good idea to put both those species in a mix.
The movie also does a fantastic job of showcasing the advancements in CGI (computer-generated imagery). Jurassic Park is one of the first movies to successfully capture the miracles CGI. In the movie, the dinosaurs are represented spot on and very scientifically accurate. The casting was also spot-on as Sam Neil, and Jeff Goldblum play their roles fantastically. The kids in the movie have also done justice to their roles as they show how terrified and ecstatic kids can be when it comes to giant creatures.
When the whole situation goes south, and the power goes out because of an unfortunate storm, the dinosaurs are let loose on the island. We see the dinosaurs roam freely and also kill and eat many humans that tried to imprison them. We see what those creatures are capable of once they are free to do what they want. Their full potential is shown. The giants majestically finally roam the island. The way it was meant to be.
“Life finds a way” is mainly what is trying to be shown in this movie.
Finally, we see the humans who built the park give up and abandon their dying effort to save their lives. Because they knew if they didn’t get out of there, they would surely be killed and eaten up the beasts that roam the land after 65 million years of extinction.
The sound effects were also incredible and unbelievable to hear.
In my opinion, this movie holds up the unbelievable standards of 2019. The story, animation, CGI and acting. All have been flawlessly executed. After all Jurassic Park was nominated for multiple Oscars and also won 3 Oscars for Best Visual effects, Best sound editing and Best sound mixing.
This is proof enough that Jurassic park is one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time. It has set the bar so high for other dinosaur-related movies, and none are able to hold up to its standards. It has become one of the greatest blockbusters of all time.
Speilberg finally makes us believe that even for a single placebo second that dinosaurs still rule the earth or at least the box office. It has gone on to become an American classic. A sophisticated portrayal of dinosaurs at that time.
