Review
I really loved Jurassic park a lot and I have watched it several times. I even enjoyed the other two as well cause the Jurassic movies were really fun to watch. So when I found out that there's going to be a new one called Jurassic World. I was excited and afraid that a new one after so long might just ruin the whole series for me. So I decided to remain skeptical and not have any forms of high hopes for Jurassic World. And when I watched it on 3D and IMAX, I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
At first I wasn't really into the whole "making a new dinosaur" thing but it wasn't too bad. The new "bad guy" Indominus-rex is pretty ruthless and goes on a killing spree. The parts where the fella chases the kids, had me screaming the shit out of the cinema.
I was looking forward to the Velociraptors (aren't they a little smaller than before?) This time they got cool call names and they were the "good guys", well kind of anyway.
Apart from the dinosaurs, the cast was pretty decent. Chris Pratt as the hero, a la Sam Neil kind of character from the first one. Pratt acts as the hero well with humor. Bryce Dallas Howard's character was annoying at first but she kinda grew on me after the first hour. Sadly the most important cast which were the kids did not really live up to my expectations. From the boys' acting to their looks of fear, it didn't really capture the moment how the kids in Jurassic Park did. Especially the eldest kid, he was annoying and a shitty actor. Vincent D'Onofrio was good though I wished he had alittle more screen time.
The effects and animatronics used were awesome. There really was a good mix of both. Editing also was good. I really liked the sound effects and some did scared the shit out of me. I don't really know much of the director's earlier works but this is definitely one of his best.

All in all, I found Jurassic World thoroughly enjoyable and I would definitely get the blu ray for this. And I really liked the fact that Jurassic World paid its due tribute to the one and only Jurassic Park in more ways than one. Kudos for that.
