Jurassic World Review – The Park is Here… and It’s Gone

**Minor spoilers ahead**

The dream of opening the first dinosaur park Jurassic World has happened. Like all theme parks the rides, in this case dinosaurs, can get boring to the general public so in order to lure sponsors the park’s owners decide to create genetically modified creatures, bigger, smarter and with all sorts of genetic upgrades. What could go wrong?

 

Hey, don’t give me that shit. – Chris Pratt

 

Well, many things could go wrong, if history has proven anything is that sequels are not always a good idea (or prequels), not to mention a park full of deadly dinosaurs is a recipe for disaster as previous movies have shown us, despite
Phil’s “best” efforts.

This time they have seemed to have captured the magic once again, I was entertained from the beginning to the end, despite the obvious plot holes that Hollywood insists on adding in order to create tension with little regard on how condescending they are.

Chris Pratt seems unable to do anything wrong, this time playing a cool ex-marine that now trains raptors Velociraptors to hunt (if that’s not the very definition of cool i don’t know what is). There are teenagers going through that rough change between childhood and adulthood, there are greedy people and tourists for snacks, and I almost forgot there is romance too; love is in the air, all the ingredients to turn a theme park full of predators into a catastrophic disaster.

The special effects are impressive, I must confess that I am not a big fan of CGI but I was convinced that those dinosaurs could have not been done better as puppets.

I usually have three categories of movies, thinking on creating some more later on, those that you must go watch in the cinema, those that we can wait for it to be on Netflix or Amazon Prime and those that I’ll only watch while drinking or to please the wife. Jurassic World definitely fits the first category and it is well worth watching it in the cinema.

M Hatti

International man of non-mystery. My passion for all things tech comes from a very small age, since the first time I learned how to connect a VCR and make it work (I was 5). My first PC was an Apple II. I have fond memories about the first time I connected to a BBS and the first time I connected to the Internet via that same bulletin board system. I love films and TV series.

  • Nice start M, great way to break your duck, so to speak.

  • Mr. T

    Great read M, totally agree with movie being worthwhile watching at the cinema! Plot pitfall was the park’s reopening despite carnage and total annihilation – everytime; but Mr. Pratt and the CGI makes up for it.

    • PrinterElf

      All that was perfectly plausible! The impossible bit was not only the fact that at the end of the film she’s still wearing pristine stilettos, but able to run in them!

  • ReSiS

    Yep, I concur with the honourable M Hatti’s review – it’s a cracking, entertaining film!
