Thoughts before watching it: It is going to be absolutely crap and the only reason it is making so much money is because of its name.

Did I come true? Yes and no.

Jurassic World is a classic in every sense of the word. A handsome leader (Chris Pratt), a damsel in distress (Bryce Dallas Howard) a bad guy who you desperately want to get eaten (Vincent D’Onofrio) and of course dinosaurs! What really gave the movie a push up though was the sentimentality; the constant (and quite obvious for the hardcore fans) references to the original Jurassic Park movie. Other than that its quite predictable.

While they could use the movie to at least address genetics morality and give it an actual plot, it turned out to be a simple monster movie with a serial killer on the loose. Chris Pratt is very good as usual but he could do miracles with a better storyline. Bryce Dallas Howard is dull and lacked any thrilling moments but she is balanced out by Vincent D’Onofrio whose twichy bad guy might be the only character with depth.

Other than that, good CGI as expected, fine direction and a decent follow up in general.

If you want to spend two fun hours chasing around bad guys/dinosaurs, this movie is one of the best of the kind. If you want an actual storyline though, better watch the original.

I rate this movie with 6.9/10.

PS: How on earth did Howard’s character managed to go through hell on pumps is beyond me. There is a close-up of her feet towards the end of the movie where I thought ‘Trevorrow (the director) is really trolling us right now’.
