Dinosaurs are back and bigger than ever! The fourth installment in a franchise that needed to be revived, Jurassic World is a welcomed movie. This isn’t Jurassic Park, but a new Jurassic World. Scientists are trying to combine DNA of other animals in order to create more exciting dinosaurs for their tourists and investors. While the scientists may have succeeded, what would the cost be? Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a former United States Navy soldier, works at Jurassic World training velociraptors and the weight of the park has fallen on his shoulders when things with a new Dinosaur start going wrong.
Chris Pratt does an excellent job playing Owen Grady and is showing that he is a great actor. The story line is a nice addition to the Jurassic universe and doesn’t force itself down the viewers throats like some additional films in franchises tend to do. Another great aspect of the story is that it is believable (up until the ending), and sets itself up for another film if they chose to go in that direction.
To elaborate more on the ending, it is weak. The whole concept of what happened in the end doesn’t seem believable. I don’t want to go into too much detail to spoil anything, but the ending could and should have been done better.
Jurassic World has many bright spots and is definitely worth a look. It keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats and gets them into the movie and invested in its characters.
Positives: A great addition to a franchise that needed reviving, Excellent acting especially from Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing), Keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats, good amount of action coupled with humorous moments.
Negatives: The ending is fairly weak.
Jurassic World has all of the tools to be great. It’s in a great franchise, has A list acting, and has a great story line. However, the ending holds it back. The ending is semi-predictable and sort of a wtf just happened moment. Overall, Jurassic World is definitely a movie people should check out. There is a reason why it’s grossed over a billion dollars in its first few weekends.
