Jurassic World

Twenty-two years after the disastrous events of Jurassic Park, the vision of founder John Hammond is now reality - a fully-functional theme park open to the public, and populated by dinosaurs.

While staff member Owen (Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy) conducts research into the fearsome velociraptor, scientists at the park are cooking up a new, genetically-modified dinosaur in the lab... Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village), Vincent D'Onofrio and Jake Johnson co-star, while Colin Trevorrow directs what is just his second feature film after indie charmer Safety Not Guaranteed.

Returning to the site of 1993’s Jurassic Park, now open as a fully-fledged tourist attraction, Jurassic World has endured a similarly torturous development process (albeit with fewer dinosaur-related deaths). Emerging surprisingly lean and mean after years of script splicing in Hollywood’s writers labs, comparisons with Spielberg’s original are inevitable, if perhaps unfair.

A return to form, but...

A highly entertaining entry into the Jurassic saga with many loving nods to the original. But... It's hard to get past the cringe-y sexism - I'm not even talking about the "heels" (actually didn't mind that): the patronising sister with kids, the poor assistant who's only crime was being a little up herself, the boys immediately clinging to Chris Pratt's...

The Dino's Are Back

Adventure, action, humor, slightly jump out of your seat, and dinosaurs. This is a summer blockbuster in all its glory. And to top it all off Chris Pratt is pure Hollywood action star. Why we go to the movies.

A great homage to the first film.

What can I say, I love Jurassic park and was super excited about a new film coming out after such a long time. Film 2 and 3 were disappointments, but they were still dinosaur films and so I enjoyed them. Jurassic World plot wise was very similar to its predecessor, but who cares, it has all the glorious things that we lived the first time around. I for one...

The Park is not extinct.. yet!

Admission: I LOVE dinosaurs. That fact will always colour my impressions of these films. I could happily take all of them and edit out the story and just watch the beasties at play! That said, I can still cast a critical eye over them. I recently watch the original and version 3 and still find them both effective for different reasons. The first is both...

Yeah. Like tons of it. But that's all.

Bloody Awesome!

Jurassic Park is my favourite film, always has been and always will be. Then I finally got to see the one film I've been waiting to see all year and I was upset when it finished...Because I wanted more!. As usual it will never live up to the original, but it truly is its best sequel. Wasn't convinced with Chris Pratt as the lead and I have never heard of...

The problem isn’t that dinosaurs have ceased to impress us, but that dinosaurs alone are not enough to sustain us.

A fiendishly crafted blockbuster: old-fashioned thrills, heroism and romance, locked inside a smart, self-aware shell.

While slickly enjoyable in parts, the biggest misstep here comes by puncturing Spielberg’s grandeur.

It must be the first $150 million monster movie to question whether bigger is always better.

It’s fun, but it’s ultimately more of the same in brand-new packaging.
