The story still holds up even 20 years later.....3 D pretty good except for all the butts in face. Still scary at times even though I knew the story.

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 ***.

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!

This movie is amazing, it makes you remember when setting in the theater just how amazing this movie really was. There is not a lot of noticeable difference in the 3rd but you can only do so much with a movie that was not original made for 3rd but this is just a must go to, damn good movie I love it and give it a 5 out of 5 stars.

I don't even care that I can pick out faults in the movie now that I am older. This movie will forever remain among my favorites and it still captivates my imagination like it did 20 years ago.
I actually think this was one of the best 3D movies I have seen to date. I thought the 3D effect was better in Jurassic Park that it was in Avatar and Alice in Wonderland.
