Online Book Club pick--September 2019.
This movie has so many similar elements to Zoo--action, adventure, animal attacks, and gory fights. How would Jackson Oz fare against the dinosaurs?
Dinosaurs had never been made so realistically before Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, which remained the top-grossing film of all time for 15 years.

SummaryAdd a Summary
John Hammond, a rich man, hires a company ( Ingen ) and makes a dinosaur theme park. His team Extracts Blood from a mosquito inside a piece of amber and uses that dinosaurs' blood that contains many dinosaur DNA and makes many dinosaurs. Then one day, a worker for Ingen ( Dennis Nedry ) makes a deal with a man named Lewis Dodson who says they can both be rich if Nedry steals some frozen dinosaur embryos. So Nedry shuts down the whole park and takes the embryos. While he trys, he soon gets eaten by a dinosaur ( dilophosaurus ) and soon all of the dinosaurs in jurassic park are roaming free.
