It was awesome, enough said. To expand yes it was the exact same movie as the original but that was expected. The 3d was stunning and this can not be contradicted in any way. 90% of the movie was 3d overlay and that outstanding compared to other movie you go see. So if you haven't saw it yet I highly recommend it.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. The quality was really good and 3D makes you feel that you're right there. I would recommend this movie.

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.

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 ***.

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