JURASSIC WORLD (2015) Review

Jurassic World
Jurassic World

If I was to be honest with myself, ‘epic dinosaur fight’ was exactly what I kept thinking as I left the cinema. Oh yes, this is one for the big screens people. And good quality sound. Otherwise you are just ripping yourself off. Why would you want to do that? This is Jurassic World!

With action, thrills, a smattering of humour and a dash of romance, Jurassic World tries to cater to the whole family. Director Colin Trevorrow and his team made the right move to wait all this time before spewing another Jurassic anything. Of course, they could not make the movie without producer extrodinaire Mr. Steven Spielberg!

Jurassic World is set at a new theme park located on the very same island as the first Jurassic Park. This new theme park is more state-of-the-art though with a luxury hotel and well-organised attractions for the different dinosaur breeds. The park attracts thousands of tourists but it soon becomes clear that was not enough for some people in the park’s management. So they went ahead and meddled some more with nature to create a new hybrid dinosaur. Smart move people.

Obviously, we cannot have a Jurassic World movie without the clever child who knows all about dinosaurs and other important things. Like how to fix old Jeeps, for example. The brilliant child in this particular movie is Gray played by Ty Simpkins who you may (or may not) recognise from Iron Man 3. He and his brother, Zach (Nick Robinson) go off to visit the island, where their aunt Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) helps manage the park. Instead of taking care of her nephews, as she had promised her sister she would, Aunt Claire hands them over to her assistant. That is probably one of the first things Claire regretted when all hell broke loose.

The new hybrid becomes a threat way before anyone can figure out what is going on. Opportunistic military men and genetic specialists try to milk the situation with little success. And in the end, it’s up to our hero/heroine combo and the children to save the park and everyone in it.

Best parts about Jurassic World:

  • The very good-looking ex-military man, played by Chris Pratt, who just happens to be able to command the Raptors. Did I mention he has a thing for Claire?
  • The fact that the Velociraptors (Raptors, for short) are on the good side for once.
  • The epic fight scene between the bad hybrid dinosaur and the King of dinosaurs, the one and only T-Rex!
  • The heart-warming scenes between the two brothers. AWWwww!!
  • That scene where we all laughed out loud. Which scene was that, you ask? Go watch the movie and find out!

Moral of the story: do NOT interfere with nature! Don’t you people learn?

This 124-minute movie earns itself 4 out of 5 stars. After all, it is the third highest-grossing movie this year so far.
