Jurassic Park is a widely known film. It has brilliant special effects and captures the story very well. The script is good and the acting is good. The film doesn't bore and is a great family classic.
Huge advancements in scientific technology have been able to create an island full of living dinosaurs. John Hammond have invited four individuals, plus his two grandchildren to join him at Jurassic Park. But will everything go to plan? Especially when one of the parks own workers attempt to steal the dinosaurs embryos, and have to shut down all the electricity in the process. It's now a race for survival with everyone located all over the island.
Jurassic Park 2:
Theres nothing wrong with this film however it doesn't live up to the original for me. The film shows predictable plot. The acting varies from around average and the effects are good. Script could of been better. Without being compared to the original, its a good adventure.
After a small girl is attacked by a small group of compsognathus, Ian Malcolm discovers that there is a second island full of a variety of dinosaurs. Dr. John Hammond decides to send four adventure to monitor the dinosaur's lifestyle before INGEN move forward in controlling the island. Ian Malcolm doesn't like the idea and wants to contact the other three members, but before he can contact them, he finds out that his girlfriend, Sarah Harding is already on the island. Now, what was supposed to be a natural viewing of the incredible creatures in their habitats, has turned into a rescue mission with everyones life at danger.
2 great films both a must see 5 star
Having converted most of my old video collection to DVD I was thrilled to find these films in digital format. If you watch this in widescreen format, it really does the dinosaur battle scenes great justice; coupled with surround sound, you'll be gripped by the amazing cinematography i would recommend it to any family for a good film night in with the kids off course with the 3rd film
Excellent CGI action & great plot!!!

Jurassic Park 2 - The Lost World
Doctor Ian Malcolm returns for more dinosaur-horror when, four years after the disaster at the would-be amusement park attraction.
Another expedition is mounted to document the natural behaviour of the beasts at mysterious Site B, the island where they were originally bred them.
In this action/adventure movie.
One of the best film & sequel ever
If you've never seen Jurassic Park and The Lost World, then what have you been doing all this time?
Jurassic Park is a timeless classic, where the SFX are flawless (mostly because of the use of animatronics rather than entirely CGI.
The Lost World is a fair sequel to the JP legend, and is a fun adventure to be taken on.
Don't bother with JPIII because it couldn't hold a candle to these two films. If you want a Jurassic Park boxset, get this one!
