Jurassic World (2015)

Here’s the link to the trailer of the movie in-case you haven’t watched the movie/trailer yet: https://goo.gl/E5iBts

Amazing. Simply amazing. Generally reboots tend to be good but no where close to the original, but Jurassic World beats this trend is as spectacular as the original movie, Jurassic Park. With spectacular graphics and brilliant direction our favorite sci-fi beasts are back in action and trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.

The movie has a plot similar to all the previous entries in the series, where a theme park is opened and like every time, things go terribly wrong. But this time, they’ve managed to give a completely new look to it. Ever imagined how dangerous a dinosaur would be if had the toughest and useful skills available in the wild, in its ability list. Yeah well, this movie brings that to life. The movie begins with two young boys being sent to the Jurassic World where their aunt holds a high position in the management. In the mean time, the writers introduce the antagonist of the movie, the Indominus Rex, a mutated and genetically created dinosaur that has superior intelligence, has the ability to camouflage and run relatively fast for its size. The Indominus Rex manages to fool the humans and manages to escape and is heading straight for where all the tourists are situated, the movie right from the start sets the tone of the bloody, egregious and merciless killing that will happen throughout the movie. Owen (Played by Chris Pratt) is an ex-marine officer, who has managed to make four full-grown raptors his living pets. The movie has a pretty upbeat start and the plot moves along very well and at a very good pace. 

Simon Masrani (Played by Irrfan Khan) is the person in-charge of running the park and he is a convivial bon-vivant, who doesn’t care about the extravagant expenses if he can manage to get some really scary and cruel dinosaurs to show-off to the world. When the Indominus Rex breaks free, instead of sending a chopper to shoot the dinosaur, he ends up using this opportunity to try out his security system, which ends very badly and only adds fuel to the chaos. I have noticed Irrfan Khan has this weird bond with animals in all his Hollywood movies, where he is always attacked by them either directly or indirectly; Life of Pi, The Amazing Spiderman, Jurassic World.

When the two boys defy the security warnings of the park and continue exploring the fields when they were asked to come back, the movie gets really fast and amazing, the Indominus Rex attacks them and we see quite a few classic shots for which Jurassic world was famous for. The face close-ups, the eloquent pause which signifies the calm before the storm. The writers very cleverly, link the old movies to this one, when the boys run into the old park where they come across the old Jurassic Park jeeps. As the movie moves along, the aunt, Claire (Played by Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen are frantically hunting for them. After this, the movie takes a spiral down logic wise, but when you’re watching the movie in the hall you are so spellbound, you wouldn’t care about logic, you’d just wish for more action. Hoskins (Played by Vincent D’Onofrio) is a military personnel who wishes to use dinosaurs in the United States Army and to test their efficiency sets Owen’s raptors free. After this movie simply takes an epic turn, with crazy fight scenes between the raptors and Indominus Rex is wow, but that’s not the end, it keeps getting epic-er as it progresses. When the raptors fail to defeat the Indominus, Claire does something epic. She releases the T-Rex! This literally symbolizes the past vs present. An epic showdown that you simply cannot miss. 

With crazy animation and brilliant direction, Jurassic World is by far my favorite movie of the year so far and it’s only June. I knew that 2015 and 2016 would redefine the cinematic universe all together, but I never thought they’d set up such a benchmark. My suggestion to you is that, don’t try to make sense out of all the action scenes, because it is one of those movies. Just strap in and enjoy the ride. And all of you, who have the opportunity to watch it in 4D, you better watch it. The acting was little bland at points, but the action sequences and animation made up for it. There were various points in the movie that could be used to make a good sequel, the most probable one being where they took all the dinosaurs’ genes and embryos right before the evacuation. The movie ends with the T-Rex on top of a cliff/helipad and roaring while overlooking the park-the old and the new. And only one thought came to my mind when I saw that; The legend has returned.

My rating for Jurassic World: 9.1/10

    Wait, so you’re saying the action isn’t able to be followed but it’s still a good action movie because it’s fun? Doesn’t make sense bro…

    1. Nah man, I’m saying if you look at it from the logical point of view it makes no sense. For example when Claire is going to get the t-rex, she uses a flair. Reptiles are color blind so can’t see the flair, the heat from the flair will cause it to become confused and it would rather move away from it. When it laid eyes on her, it followed her, but normally it would’ve attacked her and eaten her. But you gotta admit, if things didn’t pan out the way it did, we wouldn’t have gotten such an epic fight sequence.
