I bought this after watching Titanic and seeing how good post conversions can be when done properly, with a dedicated team that spends almost a year on the process and $10mil. I have to say, after horrors like Thor 3D and Clash of the Titans 3D, I was extremely sceptical about whether post conversion could ever really work - I felt they were just cash grab gimmicks. I am so glad to say, Post-conversion can be totally Amazing.

Jurassic Park 3D is THE BEST live action 3D film I have ever seen. It was an incredible experience and beats all of the Marvel films, Avatar and other natively shot 3D films. I own about 50 3D films and was, up until now, of the impression that only animations really work in 3D. I am so glad to say that I was utterly wrong. I haven't seen The Life of Pi 3D but hear that's good, so maybe that represents good competition for JP 3D.

The reason JP works so well in 3D is because so many of the scenes have a great deal of perspective and layers through Dinos, foliage (blustering and static), rain, geography, structures and actors, all of which have been rendered with curved edges and positioned correctly within the frame at their respective depths. Some of the scenes do pop out too, like the raptor jumping up through the ceiling grate. The pop out is the best I've seen and used only when absolutely necessary for total film immersion. There was only one shot that didn't work in the whole film and that was the back rest of a chair that Laura Dern was sitting on, It appeared in the wrong plane of view. This scene lasted a few seconds. Apart from that stupidly minor quibble, I had one of the most engrossing and edge-of-my-seat film experiences in years. I was drawn into a film in a way that I have not experienced since I was a kid.

I have seen Jurassic Park many times over the years and must have owned it a few times in different formats but, without a doubt, I feel the 3d conversion on Blu Ray is the best i have experienced Spielberg's classic. A short, 9 minute or so, bonus feature on the 3D disc confirms why the post-conversion has been handled so well - it was handled by Stereo D the same company that were behind the conversion of Titanic (one of the best conversions I have seen). The short details the 9-months of work that went in to the process with Speilberg taking a very active roll. I never appreciated until seeing this how much work was involved - take the T-Rex scene where it was detailed how they had to make the rain appear in different perspective to give depth to the shot - all the rain drops had to be worked on frame by frame. Amazing and the results are up on the screen. The sound has seen some attention too from the original artists with a little extra oomph added to T-Rex etc., Anyway, on to the key parts of the release:

3D: As detailed above the 3D conversion is handled very well with the process really adding to the viewing of the film. Image quality (fills a 16x9 frame with a tiny black border at the bottom edge) is excellent with a tiny amount of film-like grain that is apparent in the dark scenes but, overall, a sterling effort for a film that is now 20-years old! Sound quality on the 3D disc offers a 7.1 lossless track along with a 5.1 lossless for english language (other options too but I will focus on the english language throughout). Plenty use is made of the surrounds and, for those that have one, the sub-woofer track. The T-Rex scene is the one to try with the classic ripples on the glasses of water scene!

It's going to be a classic so why not get it in 3D! Digitally enhansed so not 'true 3D' but still very enjoyable to watch every now and again. The sound track has also been enhanced and to hear the thundering pounding dino's coming out of the screen straight at you is truly heart pounding. Definitely one for the kids but still very enjoyable for us adults.

Jurassic Park was one of if not my favourite childhood movie, I have seen it countless times, and nearly managed to catch the film in 3d in America earlier this year. I think everyone knows the film so this review is not about it. More the incredible conversion job done on it to convert into 3D. In my opinion it is up there as one of the very best 3D pictures i've ever seen, even though its a 20 year old film. The depth is spot on, and gives the film a real sense of immersion, i've just sat enthralled for the last couple of hours by it.

If you have a 3d set up at home, i'd recommend this even if you already own another format of JP, it truly is astounding.

Jurassic Park is one of the most perfectly constructed blockbusters in modern cinema. It encompasses everything you could ever want. Spectacle and emotion in equal measure as well as some awe inspiring action scenes.

Jurassic Park ushered in a new era of blockbuster. It has an engaging story with some iconic characters and of course some of the most ground breaking special effects (practical and cgi) in recent times. Bringing the dinosaurs to life with fearsome personality the team behind the effects have done an amazing job which continues to inspire film makers today.

It starts off slowly letting the audience get to know the characters. Once on the fateful island things really start to hot up with glimpses and close encounters with some of the more passive dinosaurs on offer. Then the heart pumping action opener with a peckish T-rex sets the bar for the rest of the series let alone this film.

It is the small well judged moments that really make Jurassic Park memorable. The rippling water when a huge T-rex is approaching, the DNA cartoon perfectly relaying the exposition of the entire film without the audience even realising, the small moments of horror when a dinosaur attacks. It is perfectly judged and shows Speilberg off at the top of his game.

A blockbuster so powerful that it still holds its weight today and is enjoyed by so many people. One of the best that is unlikely to ever be toppled.
