From Amazon.co.uk

On remote Isla Nuba entrepreneur John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) has built the ultimate theme-park, populated by genetically engineered dinosaurs painstakingly reconstructed from DNA extracted from prehistoric amber... and, of course, frogs! Adapted from Michael Crichton's novels, Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park blockbusters became a cultural and commercial phenomenon thanks in part to the enduring appeal of all things prehistoric. But the films' extraordinarily realistic digital dinosaurs also showcased the spectacular computer-generated effects that have since become ubiquitous in Hollywood filmmaking. Indeed, in the years since 1993 it is debatable whether any films have revolutionised special effects to such an extent, and this DVD box set offers the perfect opportunity to relive both movies' visual and aural splendour (the original film was also the first to be released with a DTS soundtrack).

Given their rather insipid human prey (including Dickie Attenborough and Jeff Goldblum) there is little doubt that the dinosaurs are the real stars, from the benign majesty of the towering brachiosaurus to the reptilian menace of the velociraptors. Most memorable of all is the T-rex, displaying a spine-chilling combination of physical ferocity and child-like bewilderment in the face of its reincarnation in the modern world. While Jurassic Park still retains a unique power and a seminal place in film history, Spielberg's The Lost World sequel exceeds its predecessor in almost every respect: the digital dinos are more populous, faster and meaner, the set-pieces have more bravura, and the special effects raise the benchmark even higher in blending CGI and live action spectacle. Overall, the first film's sense of awe and almost stately contemplation of its own visual splendour are replaced with a more visceral style and darker tone, as the raptors and rexes attack with a predatory ferociousness more reminiscent of Aliens than Godzilla. Highlights include the T-rexes' cliff-top assault on a trailer van, the trails of attacking raptors as they move silently through a field of tall grass, and the safari-style dinosaur round-up by the marauding hunters, led by a grizzled Pete Postlethwaite. --Steve Napleton

Product Description

Dinosaur double bill. In 'Jurassic Park', eccentric scientist John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) plans to open a theme park consisting of live dinosaurs, genetically engineered from DNA found in a preserved prehistoric mosquito. Archaeologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) are invited to view the park, along with chaos theory expert Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), only to find themselves being hunted when the dinosaurs break free. In 'The Lost World - Jurassic Park', the action takes us four years on from the events documented in the previous film, when dinosaurs have bred on the neighbouring site of Isla Sorna. Park founder John Hammond gets back in touch with Ian Malcolm and asks him to join his girlfriend Sarah (Julianne Moore), who is already on the island, hoping that together they might be able to explain recent events there. But they are all unaware that a rival expedition is on its way to the island with plans to capture the dinosaurs and take them back to the mainland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could have been better 18 Sep 2000
Format:DVD
I had the possible disadvantage of having read both books before seeing the films. The first book was brilliant, a gradual build-up to the denouement of the discovery of the dinosaurs. The best part of the book was the journey across the island with the two children and the main character, the brushes with various dinosaurs on the way, especially the pterodactyls. This was completely omitted from the movie. The hard edge was also softened, allowing John Hammond to escape from the death he so richly merited in the book.
The second book was not quite so good but, nevertheless, quite exciting. The film fell badly short of this and the decision to alter the ending to that of the traditional King Kong/Godzilla theme of the "monster" in an urban location was extremely ill-advised. I suppose this was forced by the accountants who wanted to follow an established formula. Far better to have confined the entire action to the island as the book did.
However, two entertaining films that were good, but could have been better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dinosaur Dillemma?-Great Fun! 18 July 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Jurassic Park's great special effects steal the show in this epic film, and even now, eight years later, they are better than many others. The Lost World is a little shallow, but the dinosaurs are more outlandish and the final scene is amazing. XLent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, Spielberg at his best 11 Nov 2000
Format:DVD
Although the DVD doesn't evoke the same fear and excitement of seeing the films for the first time on the big screen, it is certainly a welcome reminder.
These DVD's are a must have for any J.Park fan, the 50 minute documentarys on each DVD about the making of the film, are fansinating. They include information on production techniques, and also deleted scenes from the films. It is very interesting to watch how such classic films came together, it also makes you realise how, (in terms of technology), pioneering the films are.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes the films, the DVD's are well 'put together' and contain lots of extra material.
