Product description

Product Description

All three films from the 'Jurassic Park' trilogy. In 'Jurassic Park' (1993) 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' (1997) 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 (Attenborough) gets back in touch with Ian Malcolm (Goldblum) 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. 'Jurassic Park 3' (2001) has Dr Alan Grant (Neill) approached by the Kirbys (William H. Macy and Tea Leoni), a wealthy couple who want a guide to escort them on a flight over Isla Sorna. Grant agrees to take the flight; but almost as soon as they are over the island, the Kirbys move the goalposts and attempt a landing. It seems their son got lost on a previous visit and the Kirbys have mounted this expedition in order to get him back; nevertheless, it's not long before a first dinosaur attack disables the plane and the rescue party finds itself stranded and at the mercy of the island's prehistoric inhabitants.

From Amazon.co.uk

It may have been over ten years since Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg’s dinosaurs first trampled all over the global box office, and its sequels may have failed to fully match the standards set by the original. Yet the Jurassic Park Trilogy: Ultimate Edition still brings together a wildly entertaining trio of films, in a very welcome DVD collection.

The basics by now are well known. Eccentric billionaire John Hammond employs scientists to bring dinosaurs back to life, with fairly impressive results. Not everything goes to plan, though, and when his dinosaur-ravaged theme park eventually goes amok in the original Jurassic Park, it’s a proper blockbuster rollercoaster ride, whose influence is still being felt in big budget Hollywood movies today.

The Lost World moves the action to Site B, a mysterious location where much of the behind-the-scenes work was done for the creation of the original theme park. That makes it extra dangerous, and again, is a fine excuse for some excellent set pieces. It’s arguably the weakest of the three films, and it’s certainly the flabbiest, but it still entertains, and entertains well.

Spielberg handed the director’s chair over to Jumanji helmer Joe Johnston for the third film, and it proved a wise decision. Johnston keeps his running time brief, cutting out much of the back-story to focus on the lizard-based action. And save for a fairly sudden finale, he delivers the trademark Jurassic Park tension and rampaging action in spades.

In short, the Jurassic Park Trilogy: Ultimate Edition is a fitting testament to a trio of blockbuster movies, that are at worst entertaining, and at best, rip-roaring, high concept, big-budget movie making of real quality. Recommended.--Simon Brew
