Jurassic Park

Steven Spielberg's sci-fi, monster-movie classic. On a remote Pacific island, an experiment has taken place: Dr John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) is creating a zoo/theme park and the main attractions are living dinosaurs, brought to life using fossilized DNA remains. Hammond's lofty ideas turn deadly though after he invites five visitors (Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum included) to preview the facilities. Nature this big can't be contained and the island's guests find themselves in wildnerness, battling to survive among the prehistoric predators.

A watershed moment in CGI effects, Jurassic Park became the highest grossing film of all time on it's release in 1993. It was surpassed by James Cameron's Titanic in 1997.

May be one-dimensional and even clunky in story and characterization, but definitely delivers where it counts, in excitement, suspense and the stupendous realization of giant reptiles.

Spielberg's dino-park thrill ride comes up eye-wateringly shiny in this rereleased version - even if its clunkier elements have become a bit more obvious with time.

The well-selected cast is winningly sympathetic and entertainingly idiosyncratic.
