The original Jurassic Park really impressed movie goers. The effects, given the time, were considered amazing. It changed the way we looked at movies and left people with a pretty good impression of the franchise. It's two sequels did anything but. Hollywood is keeping with it's trend of reviving things over new concepts. Here we are twenty two years later and we are going back to the world of computer generated dinosaurs.
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 interest in the park. A genetically engineered dinosaur that is truly the apex predator. Owen Grady is on the island to work with velociraptors and does his best to protect them from the impending military use. Enter a couple of young children trapped in the middle of the chaos and we are deep into Jurassic World.
The look of this film is incredible. The dinosaurs look real and the wow factor is still there. The film does a great job in not only referencing, but paying tribute to the original. Chris Pratt is a superstar. Make no mistake about it. There are rumors that he could be the next Indiana Jones and he really should be. He is by far the coolest character in the movie.
It's a movie with monster fights, drama, the right amount of comedy, and a decent pace. The franchise is definitely back. It quickly makes you forget about the other failed sequels. It has a good feel and sets up the next adventure. Jurassic World is everything a summer blockbuster should be. Get some popcorn and see it on the big screen.
