jurassic worldI have to open the discussion by admitting to all of you out there that I had never fully seen any of the original three films that were released back in the day. So, I was going into Jurassic World not knowing what to expect out of it, but I was keeping an open mind. The film takes place 22 years after the events of the first Jurassic Park film on the island of Ilsa Nublar. The island now features a fully functional Dinosaur theme park called Jurassic World that would have made John Hammond proud that his vision was carried out. The only problem is that the park’s attendance rate is very low so withe help of Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong), they create a new hybrid dinosaur that is bigger and badder than any dinosaur in history to try and attract more visitors. The only problem is that the whole thing goes horribly wrong as the new dinosaur is loose in the park creating havoc. The film stars Chris Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy) as Owen, Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village) as Claire, Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) as Gray,  Vincent D’Onofrio (Escape Plan) as Hoskins, Jake Johnson (Let’s Be Cops) as Lowery, Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey) as Zach, Irrfan Khan (The Life Of Pi) as Simon Masrani, Omar Sy (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) as Barry, Judy Greer (Archer) as Karen, Brian Tee (The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift) as Hamada, Andy Buckley (The Heat) as Scott, Lauren Lupkus (Blended) as Vivian, and the film was directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed).

jurassic-world-raptors-fb1What can I say about this film that probably hasn’t already been said before? One thing is for sure and that is Chris Pratt to me was masterful as he truly mastered the art of being both a badass and funny in one film. You get the Starlord character, but as a dinosaur whisperer which is kind of cool. He has a lot of great scenes in the film like the picture you see to the left of this paragraph and so much more. The film has plenty of action in it and plenty of suspense as you sit there in fear as to who is going to be eaten by the Indominus Rex which is the hybrid dinosaur they are trying to figure out throughout the whole film what he is made up of. The park looks like a zoo mashed up with sea world and there are traces of the first film within this one that you should definitely look out for. I was definitely thoroughly impressed with everything about this film considering it was the first film in the franchise that I have been able to watch. The cinematography was amazing, the acting was great, and the editing was superb as well as the writing. If you are going to wait 20 years to make a sequel or another film, then take notes from this one. A lot of franchises could learn a thing or two about how to execute a comeback. I am going to give this film an A for a final grade as 2015 truly has been an amazing year for films so far. Note: look out for the epic fight scene in the last part of the film, it’s epic.
