Being quite young when this came out i was hooked on the franchise because of the film. I loved the feeling of being trapped in the kitchens with the velociraptors, i hadn't felt that tension before. The T-rex paddock was also very good, electric fences in front - t-rex behind?
scary (at the time)...
good cheerful fun, special fx bonanza and it made its money....
Jurassic Park the film is a bit of a let down if you're a fan of Michael Crichtons writing. You just don't get as much scientific detail in the film. Reading the novel makes you think it plausible but the film is just a good plot and sfx. Good film and screenplay but I still prefer the book!
Not Nearly As Good As The Book

The book had WAY more dinosaur species (most of which were put to use in the sequels), and a lot more action. I did, however, love the movie; I saw it 9 times in the theater alone and wore out my first copy of the tape! I loved the character of Muldoon so much I was him for Halloween that year! (Alas, Bob Peck (the actor who played Muldoon in the film) is no longer with us; he died in 1999.) Maybe they'll consent to having a nephew or a son come for the 4th movie to avenge Robert's death by the raptors???
