It is 1993 all over again.
Dinosaurs ruled the world and back then they smashed box office records too, as Steven Spielberg's blockbuster Jurassic Park stomped past E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial to become the highest grossing film of all time. Long queues snaked around multiplexes, with cinema goers keen to witness the carnage wrought by Velociprators and the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
But back then the technical staff relied on animatronics and the special effects of the day.
Now we have 3D. It is a new universe entirely.
The film collected three Academy Awards for its visuals and sound, and spawned two sequels of diminishing returns — a fourth instalment in the saga is currently in development, scheduled for release in summer 2015.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original film, Spielberg and his team have converted the rip-roaring action adventure into 3D, heightening the thrills and spills as characters realise there are grave consequences for meddling with Mother Nature.
Eccentric billionaire John Hammond harnesses DNA from prehistoric amber to re-animate various dinosaur species in a reserve off the coast of Costa Rica.
Hammond invites paleontologist Dr Alan Grant, paleobotanist Dr Ellie Sattler and chaos mathematician Dr Ian Malcolm to tour the island in the company of his grandchildren Tim and Lex.
The billionaire hopes the experts will pen glowing testimonials and calm the jitters of the park's investors.
Halfway through the tour, the head computer programmer cuts the power so he can escape with priceless dinosaur embryos to sell to Hammond's rivals.
The temporary outage allows the gargantuan beasts to run amok. Game warden Robert Muldoon joins forces with head technician Ray Arnold to restore calm while Grant, Sattler, Malcolm and the terrified children outrun the hulking predators.
Jurassic Park looks magnificent in the new format and the special effects hold up remarkably well after two decades of technological advancement.
Iconic scenes like the kitchen velociraptor hunt or the T Rex attack on the children's jeep look terrific in 3D and even though you know when the jolts are coming, I bet you still jump out of your seat as beasts leaps out of the darkness, razor-sharp teeth primed to tear through human flesh.
Very young children may need to hide behind Mum and Dad during more intense moments, like Nedry's ill-fated encounter with a venom-spitting Dilophosaurus.
Mum and Dad will have to hide behind each other.
