In 1993 the world was captivated by Steven Spielberg’s creation 65 million years in the making. Our imaginations as well as our minds were BLOWN! For a movie to have such an impact on the audience and continue to do so 22 years later, reveals just how magical Jurassic Park is.
I remember watching Jurassic Park as a child and being so blown away that for years later I TRULY believed there was an island with dinosaurs!
What made Jurassic Park so special was not only the fact they were able to create these creatures using technology that wasn’t nearly as advanced as it is now, but the emotional impact it had. To make you question whether it might happen is amazing! YOU were taken into this journey, along side the character. Characters you actually cared about through the whole film.
Two decades later and my excitement didn’t wary when I purchased my tickets for Jurassic World. I wanted the same feeling I got when I first watched Jurassic Park.
I’ll reveal if it did just that at the end of the review!
Jurassic World is 22 years after Jurassic Park, and John Hammond’s vision has been successfully been accomplished. An amusement park with dinosaurs!
Siblings Gray (Ty Simpkins) and Zach (Nick Robinson) are about to head over to Isla Nublar, the original island from Jurassic Park, to experience what is not considered normal theme park. Gray and Zach arrive to Jurassic World, eager to see their very distant aunt Claire ( Bryce Dallas Howard) who just so happens to be incharge of Jurassic World.
Her character was actually fascinating, though annoying at times, she shows just how much a person can lose her understanding of what’s very going on. She sees animals behind a cage that bring people which means money. That was a very well done part of the film!
Claire is then forced to work with Owen ( Chris Pratt) whose become a Raptor trainer. Claire and Owen not only have the job descriptions, all involving with dinosaurs, but they had a disaster first date. That would make working together a bit awkward.
Claire is forced to work with Owen by the owner of Jurassic World, Simon Masrani (Irrfan Khan) who wants Owen’s expertise for their new attraction. Claire reveals that they have create their first genetically modified hybrid.
I’m glad they explained the reason behind creating another dinosaur, and that was because it brought them money, which is exactly how society is.
As smart as they may be, the fact that they created a dinosaur using other dinosaur’s DNA and PURPOSELY intended for it to be BIGGER than the T-rex, HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY THINK THIS WOULDN’T END UP BADLY?
Owen is then taken to see the new dinosaur when all hell breaks lose! The intelligence of this dinosaur is truly scary and awesome! How she totally bamboozled everyone was so enjoyable, even though people died.
This is where the movie truly begins. The dinosaur escapes and heads into the main park, where thousands of people are wondering around without a care in the world. Owen and Claire work together to try to bring the create down and try to stay alive in the process.
Their mission suddenly changes when Claire is informed her nephews are missing. Claire begs Owen to help her find her nephews, and truth be told they really didn’t need them. Those would definitely beat me on anything really!
They kids along with Owen, brought comedy relief, which surprised me!
Loved certain things that mentioned or shown that tributes Jurassic Park. From the moment the dinosaur escapes there’s action that builds and builds.
Now, does it beat or live up to Jurassic Park? In my opinion, no, but that doesn’t take away of a good movie. Jurassic Park is a classic and one that CAN NOT BE REPLACED! In 1993, we were astonished with what they created and how we felt during and after the film was over. Jurassic World was a good movie and worth seeing again, cause I know I will. But the lack of magic that Jurassic Park had just shows that classics should truly be considered a gift.
The movie was awesome and definitely worth seeing in the big screen!
