“Jurassic Park” was one of the most exciting movies of the 1990s. The action-packed scenes of vicious, car-stomping dinosaurs captivated audiences around the world. The movie, based on a book by Michael Crichton and directed by Steven Spielberg, was one of the highest grossing motion pictures ever.
 
Scientists bring dinosaurs back to life in “Jurassic Park” by cloning the creatures using fossilized DNA. The smart, nimble animals are kept in a wildlife theme park, where visitors can watch the dinosaurs roam. Then, the dinosaurs escape. A brother and sister, whose grandfather owns the park, learn how dangerous the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptors really are.
 
Members of the movie’s special effects team learned how to create lifelike robotic dinosaurs in order to make the action appear as realistic as possible. Paleontologists, museums, and books were consulted during the process. First, creators made detailed sketches; then, small-scale sculptures; and finally, full-sized robots. In some scenes, computer animation was used.
 
“Jurassic Park” questions whether people should use scientific knowledge to change nature. The movie won Academy Awards for best visual effects, best sound effects editing, and best sound.
