An economic necessity of securing a PG certificate for what is essentially a horror film has been allowed to intervene in the story-telling, so that the tone is constantly disrupted by an incongruous reassurance.

For all the ingenuity of the movie's engineering, Jurassic Park doesn't have the imagination -- or the courage -- to take us any place we haven't been a thousand times before. It's just a creature feature on amphetamines.

The 3D conversion ruins everything, like the comet that killed the dinosaurs, making Jurassic Park the rare amusement I'd prefer to revisit at home.

There's more soul to be found in any Kong close-up than in this film's overplayed reactions.
January 1, 2000
The problem with the film, plain and simple, is that it focuses all of its energies on the dinosaurs themselves.

The plot also conspires to harm the film's general credibility.

I did not feel that I wasted my two hours or my seven bucks (plus another two for the indigestible "raptor bites" candy tie-in), but I was deeply disappointed by much about the movie.
April 2, 2003
Great effects, a dime's worth of headache-inducing story.
| Original Score: 2/5
August 18, 2008
Jurassic Park doesn't have organic flow; it can't disguise its clunky, B-movie soul.
April 1, 2013
Do the dinosaurs work? Indeed they do. Does anything else? Not really.

Spectacle triumphs over sense, but with effects this effective resistance is futile.
May 7, 2018
What Spielberg and company did with Jurassic Park was deliver a true classic for the ages.
April 7, 2016
One of the great cinematic thrill rides, a masterful piece of genre-hopping pop spectacle.

November 4, 2018
Two decades on, it continues to entrance and engage new audiences, typifying everything the cinematic experience can and should be.
November 29, 2017
Altogether, Jurassic Park is an excellent example of how special effects are best used to support a good story, not supplant it.
April 1, 2013
A cautionary tale about scientists and schemers messing with Mother Nature, the film makes its point. But it takes at least 30 minutes to get going.
April 5, 2013
The tasteful Jurassic Park 3D conversion injects new wonder and excitement into one of the most captivating adventure movies ever made.

Jurassic Park in IMAX 3D may sound good on paper, but it is even better in actuality, a ridiculously fun re-release of one of American cinema's most wildly entertaining films.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
June 9, 2015
This Steven Spielberg thriller remains one of his best films and one of the best summer blockbusters of all time.
