Default just watched jurassic park again, wtf were they tihnking?

all they had was shotguns, a shotgun wudnt penetrate dinosaur hide from a distance, and it would only **** off the big ones, like what was their plan for if the T-rex escaped? hope it was friendly and talk it back into it'* paddock? who the hell runs a zoo without stocking some powerful tranquilizers?

Read the book. Michael Crichtons true version makes a bit more sense.

Hollywood has a way of really distorting a good story....

I don't remember exactly either.. But I know Michael Chrichton (sp?) is great author when it comes to the details making sense....

also, the aquisition of the dino DNA wasnt too unrealistic, but filling in the DNA gaps with frog DNA was kinda dumb, why not collect multipe samples of DNA of the same dinosaur until you have a complete DNA strand?

Not to mention they used SPAS-12s... a rather rare and expensive shotgun when a cheap Remington 870 would have been just as good.

Okay the movie may have sucked, but you must admit it was an orginial idea. And the kids loved it. I know that PAndrew thought it was great, he did not care about the guns and all the other things that were wrong with the movie. For the first time he and other children his age, were able to see what dinosaurs may have looked like and to see them on the big screen was a thrill for them.
