Had me on the edge of my seat throughout and clutching the seat next to me a couple times too. Highly recommend.

It was worth seeing again in 3D this time. So intense and kept us on the edge of our seats. Saw it when it was first released. It seems so mild compared to seeing it in 3D. Would highly recommend to those who have seen it to see it in 3D.

I saw the non-3D version on the big screen when it came out 20 years ago, and I own the DVD; needless to say, I love this movie. Seeing it in 3D was amazing! All I can say is Wow!

Remember the first time you saw 'Jurassic Park'? Mind-blowing, right? Well, twenty years on it's back. But seeing it in again, even in 3D, just reminds us how far the technology has advanced. Watching JP now reminds me of seeing that car I lusted after when I was sixteen, but now, two decades later, I see the same car and realize what a jalopy it really was. Now, JP isn't exactly a jalopy, but it does show its age, and without the eye-popping FX distracting me I can see the underlying weaknesses of the story. At the end, it is a strangely Luddite film, not so subtly denouncing the very technologies that made it possible. The acting is one-dimensional (although watching Sam Neill shake as he gets his first glimpse of the dinos remains a treat). And the story is utterly ludicrous: why makes animals that can kill you with one swipe, then give our heroes nothing more than a shotgun? Might as well have been a steak knife.
I give this tired old bird ***.
