From the film's official website:

With his remastering of the epic into a state-of-the-art 3D format, Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award-winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Attenborough, the film based on the novel by Michael Crichton is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Gerald R. Molen.

During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.

Here's what critics are saying about the 3D release:

Like Top Gun before it, the 3D provides the definitive version of classic film. Jurassic Park has been transformed with artistry, nuance and sophistication, and it's an absolute must-see during this brief run. — Jason Gorber, Twitch

The frights still work, supersized and turned into 3-D for your viewing and recoiling-from-the-screen pleasure. It's not nearly as scary on TV as it is in theaters. — Roger Moore, Chicago Tribune

Audiences accustomed to routine technological breakthroughs in the movies — 'Avatar' in 2009, 'Life of Pi' just this past November — might be wondering how the rerelease of Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster 'Jurassic Park' will fare in 2013. Will those computer-animated dinosaurs look as breathtaking as they did 20 years ago, even magnified in IMAX and converted to 3-D? The answer is yes, though the magic lies less in the pixels than in the storytelling. — Rafer Guzman, Newsday

The 3-D conversion is glorious. But the CGI T-Rexes and Velociraptors, groundbreaking at the time, may inspire as many giggles as the preteen hacker, and the boxy Apple computers — along with appearances by, in minor roles, Samuel L. Jackson and Wayne Knight, 'Seinfeld’s' Newman. —Miriam Bale, New York Daily News

"Jurassic Park 3D" runs 127 minutes and is rated PG-13.
