First, I should mention that this was my first time seeing a film in "RealD 3D." I had seen other films in Dolby 3D and Imax 3D and found both hurt my eyes and began to give me a headache about halfway through the movie. RealD 3D is perhaps not as immersive as the other types of 3D technology but is easier on the eyes and the actual video and audio quality (I think) is slightly better than Dolby 3D or Imax 3D. With that said, Jurassic Park is masterpiece that I've seen at least 50 times in the last 20 years (yeah I kind of like it) , so it was easy for me to pick up on the differences between this restored version and previous versions of the film. Honestly I was more impressed with the enhanced quality of the sound than I was with the 3D depth of each scene. Lines that were unintelligible (even at high volume) on DVD were suddenly crystal clear. Conclusion: If you've never seen JP, this is a MUST SEE. If you've seen it a few times (but don't know it by heart) it's still worth going.

It was a different view from scenes, for example you were actually in the car with the kids when the attack happened. The sound was enhanced so you heard things not on the orginal movie. Plus you could see more things like you were there. If you are a Jurassic Fan you will love it.

I remember seeing this film when it first was on the big screens, and loved it then. All these years later, just getting to see it once again on a large screen is a thrill, and I can't count the number of times I've indulged in this film since over the years. Brilliant, from the story from Michael Crichton to the direction by Steven Spielberg to the performances from a truly stellar cast, and the cutting edge effects that have stood the test of time. If anything, this film is even more timely as technology runs far ahead of humanity. The is the only film Spielberg has approved for 3D treatment, but I barely noticed it once the film started, as Spielberg's work is shot with such depth and attention to detail that it almost IS 3D already. Either way, getting to see the film on the big screen again was a joy and one I highly recommend!!

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

The music. The great effects. Jeff Goldblum's one-liners. Still one of the most purely entertaining films ever made. Highly recommend seeing while it is still out...we just saw the basic 3D version but would have loved to see the IMAX.
I thought the 3D conversion was great as well. Yes, it intensified some of the dino-attacks of course, but I was more impressed by the additional scenery depth I had never noticed before. Overall - totally worth the money/time!
