Jurassic World (2015)

The story of Jurassic world takes us to the iconic moment that every fan could possibly dream of; the opening of Jurassic park.

Starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help), this adventure is unlike anything the franchise has ever produced. Apart from the dinosaurs of course…

Initially I was unsure what to expect from such a well established series of films. After many years of waiting and fans generating such expectations, Jurassic World easily could have been thrown into the growing pile of terrible remakes and rebooted films. Needless to say, the pressure was on for director Colin Trevorrow and his debut blockbuster.

Trevorrow threw everything he had into this film and boy did it pay off! By combining astonishing C.G.I with a omniscient soundtrack and some of the most awesome dinosaurs ever seen on the big screen, it’s no wonder he hit the jackpot.

However, the C.G.I couldn’t carry this film all by itself. The climax is slow to say the least, arguably the build up is justified but initially the narrative was extremely structured and resulted in some pretty predictable events. However, the latter half of the film saw some twists and just when you thought you had it all figured out, another twist that would conflict with the first. Now, I’m not saying that this is a mind blower, like Inception (2010) but it definitely keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. As an adult seeing this film I was surprised at how much of a reaction the feature brought out in me. I was as anxious as I was when I watched Jurassic Park (1993) as a child. Perhaps this was due to the lack of comedy in the film. It certainly had its funny moments that briefly alleviate you from the 50ft killing machine that roams the island but I felt as if there could have been more adult jokes subtly written in.

Trevorrow also kept to the style of the original films but added some more modern cinematic techniques, like utilising the use of point of view angles, really creating an unforgettable experience for the viewer.

This is undoubtedly going to be one of the biggest films of the year!
