Jurassic Park Synopsis

The sequel to the mega-successful Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton collaboration. This time the dinosaurs really are roaming free and out of control on the secret Site B island off Costa Rica that John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) had as a back up site for the Jurassic Park amusement part. Hammond asks Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to lead an expedition to the island to study the animals as they are being round up for transport. Having not learned his lesson the first time, chaos again ensues.
