Jurassic World Movie Review #JurassicWorld

Jurassic World Review #JurassicWorld

Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, Jurassic World takes on the challenge of following the ever-so-popular Jurassic Park movies. I have to say, when going to see the movie my expectations weren’t very high. Usually, in my opinion, follow up movies such as this are mediocre to say the least. But, I’ll have you know that Jurassic World exceeded all of my expectations and turned out to be an amazing movie!

Jurassic World Review

Jurassic World is a new theme park located on Isla Nublar. After the horrid things that took place at Jurassic Park, a team of scientists have created a new theme park where genetically modified dinosaurs are held in captivity and used to create thrilling theme park rides. For twenty years, the park has sailed smoothly aside from a few unfortunate, but minor, events. The theme park directors are starting to see that people are getting bored with the traditional dinosaurs, so they genetically modify something quite different than normal. By combining the genetics of multiple different dinosaurs and animals, scientists create a dinosaur that is scarier, more thrilling, and hopefully more attractive to the theme park crowd. But early on they start seeing issues. This all leads, of course, to the climax of the movie.

THE GOOD:
– I was worried that Jurassic World was going to go on a completely different path than Jurassic Park and not even acknowledge it. That wasn’t the case. In Jurassic World they actually talk about Jurassic Park at several points in the movie.
– The Dinosaurs looked very real, so I was impressed with the special effects.
– The acting was good, and the movie kept me on edge.

BE AWARE:
– If taking kids to see this, you might want to be wary of the language (though not too bad).
– Also know that, as you can expect, there is violence and gore in this movie which might scare some children.

My Thoughts

I loved this movie. I may have even liked it better than the original. The fight scenes were great, the acting was impressive, and it didn’t look extremely fake either. Also, at one point in the movie I was shocked and on the edge of my seat due to a plot twist! I love a movie that can do that to me. Chris Pratt’s character was great and I found myself liking him from the beginning.

Mackenzie’s Thoughts

My friend, Mackenzie, liked the movie too. He thought it was a bit long, but that didn’t change his opinion of the movie. We went in at 7:30pm for the movie and got out at around 9:45, so make sure you allow a lot of time. He also loved that they went along with Jurassic Park and spoke about it a lot in the movie as a tragic accident at a park. He really liked that. He also loves action packed movies, and he said that the action scenes were very impressive.

Overall, we loved Jurassic World. If you are a Jurassic Park fan, we definitely suggest coughing up the money for a ticket and going to see this. You won’t be disappointed.

  28. It’s great to hear that you both thing the movie is worth it. So many times you go to these sequels and they are a huge let down.

  34. Thanks for the review! I just bought ticketts for my kids and husband to go tomorrow for Fathers Day! I am so excited to see it!!

  35. We were hoping to see it last week – but hubby had to work – going tomorrow for Father’s Day with my family – at the IMAX – didn’t think about checking out how long it was – thanks for that also! :)

  36. Glad to hear you liked the movie – it’s so hard to tell if a movie is good or bad these days since critics sometimes pan movies that are “fun to watch” even if they aren’t “amazing works of art”.

  37. I really can;t wait to see this with my son! I loved Jurassic park when I was a kid so I know I’ll love this!

  39. My kids are begging me to take them to this movie, I’m glad you pointed out the language in the movie since I was worried their might be some. I think this is still a great summer blockbuster that we have to see before it’s to late.

  40. We watched the movie yesterday and we definitely loved it. Well, we’ve always been fans of Jurassic movies. Actually after watching it once, I want to watch it again. :)
