Jurassic World


The Jurassic Park films are all about survival against dinosaurs on a much larger scale and the first three films captured our imagination over our obsession over the primeval monsters that were once wiped out from history but became part of the pop culture geekdom. After years of waiting, a new Jurassic Park film has arrived and this time, it's the biggest since the last three films. Welcome to Jurassic World.

The world of Jurassic World is a theme park where thousands of people attended for some sight-seeing with the dinosaurs as well as other recreational stuff. When the park featured a new attraction, the spectators were surprised but when the new attraction becomes a dangerous thing, mayhem ensues, and only a brave group of individuals must survive this primeval mayhem on a large-scale.

With Steven Spielberg returned as the executive producer of this film, the biggest, long-awaited, installment promises to be the most thrilling film in the summer because Jurassic World blows their minds away with its plethora of primeval thrills that will leave moviegoers, even the whole family, jump out of their seats right until the moment the T-rex roars in a spectacular fashion, just like what you expect from the past films.

This movie feels like everything else but there are some drawbacks. First of all, it's the casting because while dinosaurs became the spotlight of Jurassic World, the human characters feel a bit too shoddy, they just can't make a name on this film. Also, this movie is just nothing but a product placement for a luxury car maker known as Mercedes-Benz. In the past, you saw a Jeep Wrangler (not an MB but from a time when Mercedes' parent company, Daimler, used to be called Daimler-Chrysler) in the first film while in The Lost World, you saw a first-gen MB M-Class. Now on this film, you'll find the offroad-conquering G63 AMG 6x6 making a name for itself on the film. What is this? You'll expect petrolheads to salivate an offroader appeared on the film?!

Anyway, despite its faults, Jurassic World is still a great film to watch and when it comes to find a film that delivers the biggest thrill this summer, look no further because this is truly one of the best films you'll watch this summer.

My rating: 4.2 out of 5.
