22 years after the original Jurassic Park failed, Jurassic World sees the original idea working rather successfully and encouraging more and more guests at all times. However, the park’s previous popularity has led to the decline in its ‘wow-factor’ as people are getting bored of standard dinosaurs. The owners of Jurassic World look towards years of genetic research to engineer a new breed of dinosaur, mixing dinosaur genes with the genes of all manner of different animals to create a super dinosaur, if you will. As the film gets into motion, what else would happen but the dinosaurs go crazy, escape and threaten the lives of the millions currently on the island and everything goes horribly wrong.
In amidst all of this, we follow Claire, a career driven woman with little time for family, and her nephews Zach and Gray, coming to visit Jurassic World. Then joins Owen Grady, a dinosaur trainer and their best hope of survival.
Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, this film has more than dinosaurs to offer. It has an incredible cast including Jake Johnson (New Girl), Vincent D’Onofrio, Judy Greer, Irrfan Khan, Katie McGrath, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, BD Wong and Omar Sy.
Chris Pratt was my reason for watching this film, I’ll be honest with that one. I never really watched the Jurassic Park trilogy properly; I only caught bits while my Dad was watching it. After seeing Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy, I, like many others, fell in love with him. Not only because of his looks but also because he happens to be an amazing actor. For me, he was a perfect pick to play Owen Grady and I really enjoy his chemistry with Bryce Dallas Howard too. Their inevitable romance, however expected or perhaps clichéd, was a really great element to the film. Also, I’d like to add, I really enjoyed Jake Johnson’s character and liked what he added to the film.
I really enjoyed the film (as you can tell); I thought the dinosaurs were great, the storyline was amazing and the character development, however similar any of it was to the previous films, was also brilliant to watch.
It’s safe to say that if you’ve enjoyed Jurassic Park or Chris Pratt’s acting in the past, Jurassic World is a perfect film for you. If you haven’t yet seen it, go and check it out!
