JURASSIC WORLD (2015): The Things I Liked…

Besides reminding me to be grateful that humans no longer share planet earth with dinosaurs, Jurassic World has officially awakened me to Chris Pratt’s super charismatic magic. A gift, when combined with a good script, among other things, the result is a thoroughly entertaining movie. 

I’ve never been into dinosaurs myself. But director Colin Trevorrow’s film is a fun ride; one that features several wow moments. Impressive moments courtesy of the special effects and a beautiful visual style.

Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Nick Robinson, Jurassic World takes place on the original site of Jurassic Park (1993); where a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur now exists. It’s when said dinosaur escapes and goes on a very well-captured killing spree, that the film’s action properly begins.

My overall favourite thing about this movie is pretty much every scene featuring Pratt. You know, on account of his charisma, as well as the dialogue. There’s also all the scenes with talented and adorable young actor Ty Simpkins who plays Gray.

As for the things that spoilt this movie just a little for me, there’s the scene where Gray and his brother Zack (Robinson) are able to light a match, even though I could have sworn that matches are impossible to light when wet. Did I perhaps miss a part where it was revealed that the matches had been stored in a waterproof case? I think not! The second thing I didn’t quite buy into is the romantic love connection between Pratt and Dallas Howard’s characters. 

You’ve probably already seen this movie, but if not, make time because it’s fun and the shooting style is memorable. Also, do it for that Pratt on-screen magic, and especially if you love/or once loved dinosaurs.

Happy Film Loving
