This is not a Jurassic Park, but...
on October 20, 2012
This is definitely the best dinosaur movie since Jurassic Park.
J.P was the first step in making the ultimate dinosaur movie, both intelligent, with perfect give-away atmosphere and those movies are an eye-candy. This movie was the best of the rest. Nothing took Jurassic park movies from it's 1st place, but the second place is definitely for this movie.
The story was okay, because it is hard to believe in a place where dinosaurs somehow survived. Not just one or 2 of them, but plenty of species, including flying ones. And as soon as we have them it is hard to believe that this will remain a secret for long. The movie has a potential, and there could be done a second sort of chapter for the movie.
Acting was great and actors were good. Did not fell in love with any of them and I think the son and father relationship was a little too much. I mean I did not like it. Sure that shows a picture of who is who, but I still think it was just too much.
Dinosaurs models are just good, not just some bad CGI models, but they are really good, when comparing them to other dinosaur movies.
I would give the movie 4 stars if not the twisted (sort of) ending. I found myself with lots of questions on what will happen next, and I enjoyed the twist (the last 10 minutes) more, than the rest of the movie. It sort of got me right there.
Also there is a relationship with dinosaur, that really made the movie stand out. It's not something I expected to see and like. Usually it's bad CGI models that I see in other movies, but here it was not the same.
I'm upset that this movie is not on blu-ray yet or even dvd region 1 (though I use region 1 &2 dvds). The reason for that is that even though IMDB gave it a low rating, like plenty of times before I find myself in situation when I either believe the ratings and miss the movie or I watch it anyway. I am glad I did not look at IMDB ratings before I finished the movie. I suddenly got really upset when I saw them.
Do yourself a favor and do not read any ratings and reviews for the movie. Just buy it and see for yourself.
I am an experienced movie watcher. I love plenty of movies, and when I say this is not a bad movie, I really mean it.
