For media educator

Completed in 1993, Jurassic Park is an action film that combines real science and technology into a spectacular and fast-paced adventure. In the story, extinct dinosaurs have been brought back to life with the help of genetic technology, but tampering with nature goes wrong and predator dinosaurs begin to threaten humans.

Even today, the film looks surprisingly realistic and the dinosaurs look real. Since the events of the film could, in principle, be possible, predator dinosaurs are quite scary for the little ones in the family. They hunt the human characters in the film, and people spectacularly become their food. In the center of the action are also two children who almost fall into the clutches of Tyrannosaurus rex and then Velociraptors.

The scenes are sometimes quite dark. Jurassic Park deals with the moral dilemmas that can arise when science is harnessed to the lure of market forces. The film features three right-minded scientists who question the views of Dr. Hammond, the director of a dinosaur park. However, Jurassic Park respects nature in that the dinosaurs in the film feel like real animals and are not just evil monsters. The gender roles in the film are relatively traditional.

The researchers are mainly seen as men and one woman, among the child actors the big sister is timider than the cool-headed little brother. After all, even the big sister gets to shine with a computer question at a time when computers were not yet in every pocket.
