Review : Jurassic World


“Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.”

Jurassic World is the fourth installment in the long running Jurassic Park series. It does reference those other movies, in a mostly not so ridiculous way that will be a nice nod to fans of the original movies. This movie does have one major problem, and that is that it’s pretty much impossible to recreate the magic and wonder that we all got from the first movie. They try their best with the new D-Rex, and it I a very well constructed and thought out creature for the most part, but I think even Spinosaurus from the third Jurassic Park movie has more of a iconic feel to it, as it really existed. Also the storyline of the two children was something I really didn’t care about, like at all, so I could have done without them personally. Everything in the movie does look great though, and you can totally believe everything that you are seeing on screen. This movie I think would be better received if it were just a dinosaur or monster movie, but that Jurassic Park logo does add some pressure as I said before, to live up to that awe and wonder. If you are a fame of these movies then you will enjoy this movie, and you will probably enjoy it a bit more if you aren’t a fan. Chris Pratt is the best part of this movie, him and his raptors. That situation also is handled really well in there explanation of the Pratt, raptor relationship. All in all it can’t live up to the original Jurassic Park, but it certainly puts its sequels back on track after they seemed to have gone downhill since the first movie.

Review Score : 7 out of 10.
