Movie fans who are old enough to have seen this movie when it first came out in the 90’s remember an epic thriller with awesome thrills and super realistic effects. The premise of the movie is based on the book of the same name by Michael Crichton. Six people (Allan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Donald Gennaro, Tim and Lex [do not know their last names in the movie]) are invited to a “biological preserve” by John Hammond who had spent several years setting it up. Their invitations were based on three things: Allen and Ellie are dinosaur experts, Donald is a lawyer who is investigating the safety of the island as a result of an accident which is seen at the beginning of the movie and the others are there to see what they think of the island. Nobody has any idea what is coming and by the end of the movie things have not turned out for the better like what was probably expected.
How did the 3D version of this movie do? Like many of you who are fans of the original, I was a tad skeptical as to how this movie would do in 3D. Well, my mind was changed tonight when I went to see JurassicPark 3D. The leaves and trees at the beginning of the movie felt like they were right in front of my face and still looked real, people in the movie looked like they were in the front rows of the theater, I reflexively wiped mud off my face several times and also jumped a couple of times too. In short, the 3D version of this movie rocks. I sincerely hope that the next two movies are done in 3D.
