Directed by: Colin Trevorrow

Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, and B.D. Wong

Jurassic World was not a particularly creative movie. It was, at its basic level, an updated version of Jurassic Park. However, that did not diminish the thrill that it gave the audience when they first spotted the Indominus Rex through the trees. Nor when Chris Pratt came thundering through the jungle on a motorcycle surrounded by raptors. At the end of the day, it was playing to the teenagers and young adults in the audience. Those who were too young to see the first movie in theaters, but still loved it.

In this respect, it was a triumph. With elements of the first movie actually IN the scenes. The old visitor’s center, the old logo, and even the Jeeps from the first movie. By including these elements, the movie both incorporated the first one and showed that it was trying to create a ‘new generation’ of movies. Whether it did bring something new to the table is questionable. It was the same basic plot, Dinosaurs are a bad idea.

While it did play on new elements, like including the D.N.A manipulation, there was nothing really SPECIAL about the plot. Still, it is a movie that reminds you why you love to watch movies in the first place. Which is kind of what Jurassic Park was, so even in this respect it is not particularly original. But, this thrill that you get from seeing it, and it’s solid cast, is what earns it the four-star rating.  It is definitely a movie that you should go see, and it would not be surprising if it was nominated for awards this year. So, go see it, even if you think it could not beat the first one, because you will be reminded of how the original Jurassic Park made you feel.
