About this deal

For a demo sequence here, just watch the scene where the T-Rexes attack our heroes for the first time. Black levels are strong and push the frame further than it has been before, the first Tyrannosaur attack, or Nedry’s escape showcase some excellent depth with shadow detail when needed. Later, we see the reactions of three characters, before we're finally allowed to see the once extinct animals for ourselves.

These mixes were designed with incredible viewer-immersion in mind, and they are a thrill-ride even without the visuals. Sam Neill, who plays Grant, nails the character better here than he did in the first film (even he admits to this in the new documentary, as well). It is clearly apparent that all three films have had their old masters brought forth for the 1080p makeover, and that Universal has not stumped-up for a new scan properly supervised and authorised by the makers, although I have heard that Spielberg apparently signed-off on these transfers anyway. Plenty of shots of encampments and valleys – the impromptu camp that the T-Rex destroys, the little green buggers that pester, chase and get some payback on Dieter on the river-course – provide a keen sense of distance, scale and dimensionality.Obviously one the major selling points of this series of films was the dramatic bass levels that they had to offer. All three movies sound wonderfully rich and dynamic and boast the sort of wraparound immersion that you long for with this type of genre.

Warn the street that you're having dinosaurs round for the evening because the depth that accompanies them is not only suddenly resounding in knee-jerk shock-stingers, but awesomely sustained throughout some of the most emphatic set-pieces this side of LOTR.

Audiences are continuously reminded that corporate greed is bad and sometimes just as selfishly ravenous as the Velociraptor depicted on screen, but rarely are they allowed to connect emotionally with a particular character, which greatly diminishes the film's attempts at suspense. The film is far more visually nuanced than the original movie, and thus it's a softer, more delicate print – one that doesn't make a sparkling leap to Blu-ray. aspect ratio, the picture is excellently detailed, but as with the previous two, digital effects and composites bring a noticeable drop in resolution quality. The images here don't look all that amazing I'm afraid, and reveal that the studio has skimped on the Blu-ray release of one of its most illustrious and bankable franchises.
