FILM REVIEW: JURASSIC WORLD

Moviegoers the world over have been awaiting the return of the monstrous franchise started twenty-two years ago by Steven Spielberg, and their wait was worth it.

For those of you seeking an intricate plot and in-depth screenwriting, skip it. You came to the wrong place. The film is chock-full of plot-holes, corny dialogue and ridiculous events, but that doesn’t deter the film from being an action-packed visual dazzler with fun and excitement dripping from its jaws. Though it does not come close to the inventiveness and special-effects pioneering of the original, it surpasses all others in dinosaur battles for prehistoric supremacy.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard turn in solid performances considering what they had to work with, often times having difficulty hiding the urge to snicker at some of the lines they had to deliver. If the writers could have cut out the politics and the ulterior military motives and just let the main attraction stand alone, it would have been a much better film. But, in spite of all that, the last forty minutes more than makes up for the money spent at the box office and leaves the audience with a pretty good buzz for the new installment to an otherwise floundering franchise.

I give Jurassic World 3.5 out of 5 stars.
