- Synopsis / Plot
- Billionaire John Hammond builds a theme park by cloning dinosaur DNA into living dinosaurs. Because of the accidental death of one of his workers, he hires several scientists to endorse the park: Alan Grant, a paleontologist, Ellie Sattler, a paleobotanist, and Malcolm, a mathematician. Hammond’s young grandchildren, Tim and Lex, join them. Once they begin an inspection tour of the facilities, Dennis Nedry sabotages the controls in an attempt to steal some dinosaur embryos and sell them to the competition. With all the safety mechanisms down, the scientists and the children must survive various dinosaur attacks.
