Movie Page:

In this reboot, we go back to Jurassic Park (but is now called Jurassic World) where two brothers go to visit their aunt Helen (Bryce Dallas Howard). While there, they come across a problem. A big one. One of their mutated dinosaurs gets out and it’s up to Owen (Chris Pratt) to take it down with the raptors that he’s been training.


It is no surprise that yet another movie is being rebooted, but this one is one that you can get on board with. While it has a lot of similar plot points as the first movie does, it’s a story in it’s own. The movie touches on some pretty deep stuff, if you are willing to look past the action and thrilling sequences. Helen tries to be the next big thing for her job by messing around with science. This is something that can be related to those who are cloning.

On a less serious note, Chris Pratt once again proves why he is the new ‘it’ male lead for movies. He fights for the dinosaurs and tries to get Helen to see that they are more then just numbers on a spread sheet. He is able to be funny while be a major bad ass.

The finale battle is the best part of the whole movie. The final battle lasts for a good thirty or forty minutes as Owen and Helen try to take down the new dinosaur. There are many times when you think ‘ok this is it’ but nope at least another fifteen minutes of battle ensues.


Of course there are some things that are little ridiculous shall we say. For example, I find it rather hard to believe that Helen is able to run through the jungle and three inch heels. There may have been some problems with the editing. For example you can tell the sequence of how the movie was shot because of the actor’s tan lines. To avoid this it probably would have been best to have all the actors tan so you wouldn’t notice.

The movie pays homage to Jurassic Park and makes up for the disaster that was the two sequels. The action and Chris Pratt is what is going to draw you in, but it’s going to be the dinosaurs that you are going to stay for.
