Jurassic World Synopsis
Twenty-two years ago, John Hammond envisioned a theme park where guests could experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs. Today, Jurassic World welcomes tens of thousands of visitors, but something ferocious lurks behind the park’s attractions: a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities. When chaos erupts across the island, Owen (Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard, The Help) race to restore order as a day in the park becomes a struggle for survival.

|Bio||We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abelisaurs. Indominus' horns have been placed above eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed. Indominus' roar is estimated to reach 140-160db - the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph...while confined to its enclosure.||Mosasaurus once ruled the Cretaceous seas. An immense seagoing lizard - and not an actual dinosaur - Mosasaurus can use its fearsome array of teeth to catch fish, birds, and other marine reptiles - even great white sharks. In fact, Mosasaurus has a second set of teeth in its upper palate that ensures any prey sliding down its throat will not be able to escape.||The Pteranodon is our Jurassic World's biggest pterosaur, or flying reptile. With a wider wingspan than any known bird, it's primarily a fish eater, though Pteranodon is very aggressive.||Among the largest carnivores to have ever stalked the planet, Tyrannosaurus was one fearsome dinosaur. Tyrannosaurus fossils have shown toothmarks that could have only been made by their own kind.||The Velociraptor is our park's most intelligent dinosaur. Always on the hunt, they are not yet trained for public display.|
The Jurassic World theme park lets guests experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs, but something ferocious lurks behind the park's attractions – a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities. When the massive creature escapes, chaos erupts across the island. Now it's up to Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) to save the park's tourists from an all-out prehistoric assault.

This is one of the “blockbuster” films for 2015. My review is written for those who have NOT watched it and are still undecided whether or not they will. As one of the “special features” commented, this was a sequel for a new generation, who may or may not have watched the first 3 in the series. In keeping with that, and considering that the original actors are 20 years older, this series unlike the Star Wars sequel uses an almost all-new cast for the story.
The setting however is very much like the first movie. Story-wise it’s on the same (hypothetical) island somewhere off the coast of Costa Rica. In fact at one point you get a glimpse of the now jungle-overgrown rooms where the first park was located.
Despite the tendency of life not to follow externally-imposed rules, which doesn’t end up so good when it involves the world’s largest carnivores and human beings as their hors de ouvres, the lure of continuing and expanding genetic recreation work (for profit) was irresistible and now we have a NEW! BIGGER! BETTER! Live dinosaur theme park—kind of like Disneyland with triceratops, stegosaurs, T Rex and, let’s not forget, our new, largest-ever carnivore, dubbed Indominus Rex.
Call me jaded, but I just didn’t see truly memorable moments in this film like there were in the first (or even in the second): the dinosaur close behind in the rear view mirror which helpfully observes that “images may be closer than they appear”; the ominous shaking of the ground and droplets shaken off leaves as an unseen T Rex approaches; the truly scary scenes with a pack of velociraptors on the hunt (although yes, we do again have velociraptors on the hunt, as well as ground shaking, droplets dropping, jeeps driving in reverse—sadly it’s TOO MUCH like the original to be really groundbreaking: in other words, the studio played it safe as they usually do with mega-million dollar sequels). And I miss the original cast too: the enthusiastic but misguided Hamilton who ran the first theme park; Jeff Goldblum as the chaos theorist; even Laura Dern and Sam Neill as the archaeologist couple.
I duly noted the controversy over the somewhat anti-feminist images in this movie: the heroine seemingly running through the jungle for much of the movie still dressed in high heels; the rascally, smelly, muscular alpha male rescuing her and sweeping her off her feet, (a contemporary, scruffy knight in shining armor) and all of that. And I didn’t really care. In some ways I felt it satirized the tendency of our society to still work much like it did in the early 20th century, despite our protestations to the contrary. Anyhow I became too engrossed in the overall action to even notice whether or not she still had her high heels on after the heroine finally (literally) rolls up her sleeves and gets serious.
Notice what I just said. Despite all my comments about the shortcomings of this film I still became engrossed in the action. Whether the story is derivative or not, this film tells it with unrestrained enthusiasm and somehow manages to fairly well-balance sheer survival, good guys vs. bad guys, a romance story, and the heartwarming “kids reconnecting with each other and their parents” theme used in somewhere around 50% of PG-13 films. Speaking of which let;s speak about that rating too. This continues what I feel is a misguided ratings policy in which people being eaten alive, blood spattering into the camera and bullets flying is PG-13 material, but don’t dare show too much of the human body in a tender setting, or it has to be labeled R. Seriously?
Bottom line: it’s probably impossible to re-tell a Jurassic World story and make it top the original. But translating the story for a younger generation, the film did a decent job. In part they had good luck as they cast Chris Pratt in the lead male role before he became famous in Guardians of the Galaxy. As for the lead female, Bryce Dallas Howard…well she’s no Merryl Streep or Cate Blanchett. Or maybe I’m just suspicious of any female with “Dallas” in her name...I give this a B. PS-there are naturally multiple flavors of this film in disc form. Mine came with a circular metallic case with the blue-and-silver Jurassic World logo stamped on the top cover. Inside were the Blu-Ray and DVD versions, plain and simple. No "digital" version, No separate chock-a-block special features disc, and I didn't get the 3-D version. 2-D seemed plenty real enough for me.
I really didn't know how I felt about the new direction of the plot at first, but I'm made my peace with it. Basically, it centers around the old idea that humans will exploit something that should be wondrous and special for personal and financial gain. Also, the old adage about when anything new is created the first thing some people ask is how can it be used for war.
After watching the second movie in the new arc, I've come to like it a little better. Also, since I heard what they're planning for the series. They're opening the world and trying to get away from just retelling the same story with new characters. While I loved the original and want to see more of it, and I'm sure many of you do too, I also understand that we'd eventually get tired of it and we'd be comparing it to the originals and they wouldn't hold up.
What I am really worried about is them leaving the island. My least favorite part of the entire franchise is in the second movie where they take a few dinos to LA. I loved the first part on the island where they're in the wild, but not when they're in the city. It just turned into godzilla at that point. So I hope they handle that aspect better, going forward. I see a few possibilities that i'd love to see explored.
This is a good movie, though, that I think new and old fans alike can enjoy.
