Take your kids if they are old enough. I enjoyed watching this movie in the theatre just like I did when I was 11. It was really cool to watch in RPX 3D. I mostly wanted to go to watch my kids jump and scream, and they did not let me down. As soon as the T-Rex broke through the fence and roared my younger son looked at me and said I want to go home, but he was content afterwards and took his glasses off during the scary parts. It was really fun to watch an older movie on the big screen, and really funny to see all the really out of date technology that ran the park. I heard before I saw it that the graphics were outdated and it showed in 3D, but I have to disagree. I have seen much worse come out in the last 3 or 4 years. I hope that they are waiting to see how well this re-release does to test the water for a new installment. With the best quality cgi of today it could have great potential, unless they have a weak story, plot, and script like #3.

JP definitely holds up 20 years later, except (spoiler alert) for the Deux Rex Machina ending, which was a little disappointing after such a carefully crafted plot.

2 scores - JP Vets & JP Virgins
I saw JP3D since my 5 yr old daughter wanted to go. I HATE 3D movies, more of a nuisance than a plus. I don't see the trade off of wearing glasses and being forced to focus on certain areas of tje screen. I will say that for someone that hates 3D, this movie seemed to mesh well and actually enhanced parts of the movie.
1. JP1 Vets - I would give the experience a 7.5/10. While the movie is a 9.5, even with the added 3D I just can't give it anything higher. However I would LOVE to see old movies like JP than most the modern kids crap they put out.
2. JP Virgins - 9.75 - I give this version a 9.75 instead of the originals 9.5 because the 3D release is obvious for those that were too young when it 1st came out. This makes the 3D a perfect addition. My daughter LOVED the movie (as I did when I was a kid & saw it in the theater) I have never seen her more into a movie. After proclaimed BEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN!

Enjoyable and exciting re-capture of a great film production with the latest technology. Do not cheat yourselves, make sure you're viewing at an IMAX theatre and not RPX

A must see for fans of the series. Relive or go see it for the first time on the big screen! Saw it 3 times in the theater when it came out! Had to do it in 3D
