The film, also, succeeds from the fact it’s been 22 years since Steven Spielberg brought us this fantastic story and its incredible world with Jurassic Park and there are, now, a few new generations available for its audience.
However, unbeknownst to them, these new audiences are shortchanged by a formulaic script written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow, as well as by Trevorrow’s pedestrian direction.
Chris Pratt and Dallas Bryce Howard do an admirable job with what they’re given, but it’s interesting to note that with two and a half times the budget as the original, there is not as much tension and the monsters aren’t as scary. (No problem, here, for bringing youngsters.)
The best new gimmick is the ball-shaped vehicles for exploring the World.
If you enjoy “popcorn” movies, and it’s obvious from the box office results that millions do, you’ll, certainly, enjoy this one.
However, I can only give Jurassic World a 3+ out of 5.
