Crichton is a masterful story writer, and has rubbed a dab of his style off on me. The movie sphere is not completely terrible, but not amazing. I guess that Hollywood believes if you throw in enough cursing it will make any movie good. But I think, as some of the other viewers do, that they should have stuck more to the book. It is a terrific story that I have read enjoyably several times. But the makers should have spent more time on the film! If the basic plot would have been as inspiring as the book, I wouldn't have minded to sit two more hours for it. It had the basis to become a terrific blockbuster equal to Jurassic Park. But unfortunately it doesn't come close to what I anticipated. The movie is ok for the, "Blow em up, blood and dribble" lovers. But if you want complete satisfaction, READ THE BOOK!
