You won't be disappointed!
It's hard to see any effort in the film. There's no comedy to speak of, no real drama and, worst of all.
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
This is a great behind the scenes look at one of the finest movies made in the recent past. Everything from Crighton's inception of the idea to the pre-production dilemmas to the actual production is laid bare here and there are some stunning footage. Especially fascinating is a scene where we see Spielberg direct a scene and you can clearly see his enthusiasm and passion. The works of Stan Winston and his studio in creating animatronics of the giant reptiles is nothing short of magic. If you are a film student or just plain fascinated by the workings of this film then this is a great documentary to see.
James Earl Jones narrates what is, in my opinion, a very informative and entertaining documentary surrounding the events leading up to, and the making of, the modern screen classic Jurassic Park.Unlike many of these documentaries, you actually get good screen time with Spielberg as he explains the many components which make up the much loved fantasy world of Jurassic Park. Interestingly enough, Jurassic Park and Jackson's Lord of the Rings saga have something uniquely key in common; they were both inspired by King Kong. Had it not been for wanting to make King Kong, Jackson would not have tackled the LotR movies, and by Spielberg's own words, had it not been for the inspiration brought him by King Kong, Jurassic Park may never have been put to film (by him, at any rate).This, again unlike many filmography documentaries, is quite informative and rich with information demonstrating to the ardent fan (and the casual viewer) "how they did it."As far as documentaries go, it rates a 9/10 from...the Fiend :.
for fans of jurassic park, this movie is a must. It covers just about everything about the creation of the Dinosaurs. We see interviews with Spielberg, Michael Kahn, Stan Winston, Phil Tippett and Michael Lantieri. It's all very interesting, but i wish they also would've talked with the actors. That would've made it even better.
