Jurassic Park (film) - Plot


John Hammond, CEO of InGen, has created Jurassic Park: a theme park populated with dinosaurs cloned from the DNA extracted from insects preserved in prehistoric amber.

Hammond's investors, represented by attorney Donald Gennaro, demand that experts visit the park and certify that it's safe. Gennaro invites mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm while Hammond invites paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler. They are joined on the island by Hammond's grandchildren, Lex and Tim Murphy. The group sets off to explore the park while Hammond observes his guests along with chief engineer Ray Arnold and game warden Robert Muldoon.

With a storm heading in, everyone returns to their vehicles except for Ellie. Jurassic Park's chief computer programmer, Dennis Nedry, secretly employed by one of InGen's corporate rivals, steals dinosaur embryos. During the theft, Nedry deactivates the park's security system, allowing him access to the embryo storage but is eventually killed by a Dilophosaurus. The park's electric fences are deactivated as a result, releasing a Tyrannosaurus which devours Gennaro, injures Ian, and assaults Alan, Lex, and Tim, but they escape.

Sattler and Muldoon search for survivors of attack, but only find Malcolm before they flee from the pursuing T. rex. Meanwhile, unable to decipher Nedry's code to reactivate the fences, Hammond, Arnold, Muldoon, Malcolm and Sattler take the drastic measure of rebooting the park's computer and electrical network. They shut down the park's grid and retreat to an emergency bunker, and Arnold journeys to a maintenance bunker to complete the process of rebooting the system. When he doesn't return, Sattler and Muldoon decide to head to the bunker.

As Muldoon and Sattler proceed to the maintenance bunker, Muldoon notices that they are being hunted by Velociraptors and draws their attention while Sattler continues to the bunker. Ellie restarts the park's systems, but is attacked by a raptor from which she escapes. Muldoon is killed by a raptor, before Alan, Lex, and Tim climb an electric fence out of the park's animal zone and Tim is nearly killed when the fence is reactivated.

Grant and the children head for the visitor's center; he leaves them alone in the kitchen while he reunites with Sattler and the others. The kids escape two stalking raptors before reuniting with Alan and Ellie. Lex restores the park's security systems from the control room. Grant contacts Hammond and tells him to call the mainland for rescue before the two raptors find the group and attack.

The group flees before the T. rex breaks into the main hall and kills the raptors, allowing the four to flee outside, where they are rescued by Malcolm and Hammond.

Famous quotes containing the word plot:

    We have defined a story as a narrative of events arranged in their time-sequence. A plot is also a narrative of events, the emphasis falling on causality. “The king died and then the queen died” is a story. “The king died, and then the queen died of grief” is a plot. The time sequence is preserved, but the sense of causality overshadows it.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    “The plot thickens,” he said, as I entered.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    The plot was most interesting. It belonged to no particular age, people, or country, and was perhaps the more delightful on that account, as nobody’s previous information could afford the remotest glimmering of what would ever come of it.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
