Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum is an American actor known famously for his roles in movies like 'Jurassic Park' and 'Independence Day'.
Dr. Ian Malcolm is an iconic side character played by Jeff Goldblum in 'Jurassic Park', 'Jurassic Park 1', and its sequels. Ian Malcolm also featured in various Jurassic-themed media, including comic books, video games, and toy lines.
'Jurassic Park' is a dinosaur thriller directed by Steven Speilberg based on the Michael Crichton novel. In Hollywood, 'Jurassic Park' ushered in a new age of summer blockbusters. The movie revolves around dinosaurs, scientists, visitors, and amusement park workers testing the dinosaur park on the remote Isla Nublar, off the coast of Costa Rica, before the park's opening. John Hammond is the creator of the theme park made of cloned dinosaurs. After an incident of a dinosaur getting killed, the park investors rethink safety and invite Dr. Malcolm, Dr. Grant, and Dr. Ellie Sattler to check upon the safety and certify the park. Lex and Tim Murphy also join the group for a tour of the park. With missing dinosaurs, stumbling across triceratops, a tropical storm, it's safe to say that things do not go as planned. A park employee tries to steal dinosaur embryos, vital security devices are disabled, and the island becomes a race for survival with dinosaurs running freely. The movie ends with Hammond accepting the theme park as a failure and boarding the helicopter with Malcolm and the other group.
'Jurassic Park' is a three-time Oscar-winning movie and has been the highest-grossing film of all time for several years. The film was so well-received that it spawned two immediate sequels and the 'Jurassic World' sequel trilogy, which began in 2015. Comparing the 'Jurassic Park' trilogy and the 'Jurassic World' trilogy would be a tricky task. Both the trilogies have their highs and lows. However, the first season of 'Jurassic Park' is much superior to everything else.
