Jurassic World Review

22 Years after the first film, Jurassic Park, we finally get a sequel worthy of the original. I remember when I heard that a script was being written for a sequel and I just squealed with delight. I've waited ever so patiently for Jurassic World to be released and finally today at 2:50pm I got my reward. 

Jurassic World follows directly on from Jurassic Park and ignores The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3. The Lost World missed the mark with forgettable characters and drawn out scenes. Jurassic Park 3 started to introduce new dinosaurs but it still couldn't leave a lasting effect on the viewers. Jurassic World has all the charm of the first with loveable characters, humour, brilliant special effects, new dinosaurs and lots of action.

Chris Pratt made a delicious leading man; who wouldn't love a man who can tame raptors? The kids aren't annoying, which was refreshing, and they have their own stories which give depth to their characters and brotherly bond. Keep your eyes peeled for a statue of John Hammond, the founder of Ingen genetics and Jurassic Park, which is in honour of Sir Richard Attenborough who played Hammond. He was hoping to return to the series but sadly passed away in 2014 aged 90.

It verges on a Godzilla style movie with creatures fighting each other but that's what makes this film so great, the huge dinosaurs!
