On Wednesday night, I got a chance to see ‘Jurassic World’ a couple days before it hit theaters nationwide. I grew up dreaming of becoming an archaeologist before the first movie ever came out. My love for dinosaurs grew with this and when they announced that this movie was coming out, I could not wait to see it.
I saw it in IMAX 3D and unfortunately, I was stuck in the second row way up front. I was afraid I would strain my neck but it wasn’t too bad. The only thing was that I had to move my head left and right throughout the film.
So how did I like the movie? I enjoyed it. But this wasn’t something that WOW’d me at all. The storyline goes like this: There is an amusement park where genetically created dinosaurs are the attraction. A chain of dinosaurs escape and the humans must find a way to stop the dinosaurs before the chaos causes damage.
Just like the first movie.
The twist to this is Owen (Chris Pratt) as he is the raptor whisperer. There are some raptors he has established a bond and friendship with and his addition to this reused storyline gives it a nice kick.
I think the graphics for this movie was great and it really helped sell the story. My problem with this movie was that it had been so long since the last Jurassic Park film that I was hoping they would kind of pay homage in some form of a flashback. They didn’t do that, which in a way hurt the story a little. They did pay homage to the film towards the end, so keep an eye out for that.
This movie was not supposed to be anywhere near the level of excitement that the first one gave us but it still was an exciting go around from start to finish. By itself, it was a nice two hours of entertainment for me. I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5. It’s not great, but it’s still a fun movie.
Note: Notice the shoes the female protagonist wears. That bothered me throughout the movie.
