Dennis Muren doubted a real T-Rex would look like the one in the film. It wouldn't be as aggressive, because when bears fight on their hind legs, they can only do it for 6-7 seconds before collapsing. Dinosaurs that did the same would wear them out. See more »

[seeing that the raptors escaped]
The shut down must've turned off all the fences. Damn it, even Nedry knew better than to mess with the raptor fences.

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). See more »
It's hard to believe that it's 6 years since this film appeared at the cinemas. At the time it was a truly ground-breaking film, managing for the first time to portray dinosaurs in an extremely realistic manner, unlike those plasticine monsters that we were forced to watch in previous monster movies. Jurassic Park will also be remembered as the movie that finally made George Lucas sit up and realise that it was possible for him to make his prequels.
In hindsight, while it is still an extremely well directed and tension filled movie, the script did seemed dumbed down in order to appeal to as many people as possible - but that's really irrelevant since this film is all about dinosaurs. One of Spielberg's brilliantly directed films, it even managed to make me forget Spielberg's previous disaster of a movie - do you recall HOOK?
