Synopsis: 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. – (Source)



The Good:
The CGI dinosaurs look amazing and the advancements in movie magic make them even more awesome than in the classic first film. And the dinosaur action scenes were thrilling and fun.
Chris Pratt is at his affable action hero best and Vincent D’Onofrio was great the prerequisite scheming weasel role that movies like this always are in need of.

The Bad:
The majority of the characters are just 2 dimensional archetypes and not really fully fleshed out characters at all. And the plot is even less complex.

jw2
The Ugly:
The ending seemed really empty to me. It almost didn’t even feel like an ending but rather a “see you next time” in anticipation of the almost guaranteed sequel.

Final Verdict: A paint by numbers adventure movie but that really doesn’t matter once the first dinosaur walks on the screen. It doesn’t quite instill the same wonder as the original Spielberg film but dinosaurs are freaking cool and bring out the kid in me to the point I can overlook pretty much anything even paper thin idiotic characters and elementary plotting.

Grade: B-

  1. I wouldn’t expect much more than you have written in your final verdict and will be quite happy with that when I see the film. I actually don’t know why people expect more from this type of film.
