Trivia

Ian (Jeff Goldblum) says the line "must go faster" while being chased by a dinosaur. In Independence Day (1996) Roland Emmerich liked it so much he sampled it when they were escaping the mothership. See more »

Goofs

The "Dilophosaurus" in the film had a retractable frill around its neck and was able to spit poison, aiming for the eyes to blind and paralyze its prey. While there is no evidence to support this representation, in the film it's stated when the group is on the tour and approach the holding facility of the Dilophosaurus, the announcer states that recently, they discovered that the venom and the frill were part of what it was capable of. Meaning, clearly the "facts" were just simply exaggerated for the film, since they came upon discovering this through bringing it to life, when, outside of the film, of course that never happened. It was probably added for dramatic effect for the later scene when Dennis would encounter the dinosaur. See more »

Groundbreaking!
26 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This was obviously the most sophisticated portrayal of dinosaurs at the time, and it doesn't age a bit. Sam Neill plays Dr Alan Grant, a paleontologist who is persuaded to check out Richard Attenborough's new theme park, only to find that he has managed to clone dinosaurs. There is plenty of action, and the dinos look so real as to be positively scary! Sam Neill puts in his usual incredibly brilliant performance, and you can really believe he is acting with the creatures! Jeff Goldblum as usual seems to play himself, as Professor Ian Malcolm, an expert in chaos theory who is convinced the park is a bad idea. The cast are amazing, the effects are amazing, this whole movie is amazing. It doesn't get any better than this!
