CompsognathusMember0 XPNov-15-2013 12:34 PMWarning: Contains Spoilers! I found the ending of the Jurassic Park book somewhat anticlimactic. It was good, but not quite as good as I thought it'd be. Grant just injected a few raptors and eggs with some poison and they were rescued. I was thinking, "Uh, that's it?" Granted, they did go and find the huge raptor nest and the napalm bombing was cool, but still. I found the fight scene between the Tyrannosaurus and the raptors at the end of the movie better. That was one thing I think the movie had done a better job with than the book, the ending. It was much more climactic and action packed.

Which ending was better?

In a first script, Hammond had to shot one raptor, and the other had to be killed by the T-rex skeleton. Glad Spielberg changed that, the T-rex vs. Raptors is much better. Also, I was disappointed by the novel's ending as well, I found it a bit unoriginal.

Tyrannosaurus RexMember6270 XPNov-15-2013 3:00 PMBased off of that information, I'm going to go with the movie ending. I have two more stories in the works right now, and one is basically the rise and fall of Jurassic Park, along with the 2015 Park, so I have some ideas for the years between the first and fourth movies.

I was a little confused at first on why he would do that If they were just gonna bomb the island The film ending was GREAT, PERFECT, AND PRECISE. (although watching an old man shoot a raptor would be kinda awesome and funny)

i looooooove the book. but i do prefer the movie ending. i wouldn't change the ending, but i wish the part about lex/tim/alan on the raft was included somewhat. at least that part had somewhat of a second life with the ride in universal

As much as I love both versions of the story...the movie has the better ending for sure. Rexy's roar at the end is my favourite movie moment of all time.
