    It has been 22 years since Jurassic Park burst onto the blockbuster scene, and 14 years since Jurassic Park 3. Now, finally, there’s a new instalment, and it’s a smart, vivid action movie that understands the pitfalls and pleasures of the prehistoric fantasy.

    Jurassic World is directed by Colin Trevorrow, who also wrote the film with Derek Connolly. It is Trevorrow’s second feature, after the inventive indie science-fiction-relationship movie Safety Not Guaranteed.

    Thrilling film with great CGI that guarantees some jaw dropping actions with a few attempts at humor. While watching, all I can think was how my little brother is going to love this movie. It’s very graphic, the acting was great however some characters are under developed. But maybe I’m just being biased here because I saw him without shirt. Anyway, the plot was unoriginal, same old mutation/splicing blah blah, the fights/chase are not new to you but hey, it’s your first time seeing it in such vivid, 3D detail so I that alone is worth it…I think.
    Rating: 8.5

    The film was overdeveloped by the suits at Universal for the last 14 years, and it shows. Many of its ideas are haphazardly grouped together and none quit bloom satisfactorily.

    I saw an advanced screening. It’s entertaining. I think it will do well. It’s not brilliant. It’s another one of Spielberg’s mind-dumbing adolescent block busters. But we know that so go and jump and laugh and buy the over-priced popcorn. It’s a fun, dumb, movie.
