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.|

DNA tampering and jaw-dropping disrespect for nature dictate that things will soon take a turn for the worse. The impenetrable head scientist (B.D. Wong) is tasked by the financier - the 8th richest man on the planet - with creating a monster feature attraction, is mandated to "make it scarier and cooler." Ergo, the Indominus Rex, 50' long when fully grown, a mutated hybrid what's part T-Rex and part classified (And why is it exactly classified? Who the hell knows?). It dawns on the theme park's horrified think tank that the Indominus Rex is an intelligent entity, as it turns out, a super-predator what relishes killing for sport. It's inevitable that it gets out of its paddock and proceeds to run amok. What's so frightening is that it tricks its way out. So, twenty thousand people trapped on an island... Yikes.
Jurassic World annihilated the summer box office, its way of thumbing its nose at its naysayers. For sure, this movie has got flaws, some of 'em serious flaws. But this is the best sequel to the original film. At its heart, Jurassic World is awesome fan service. Unlike the most recent Godzilla - a movie that for most of its running time mercilessly teased us with mere glimpses of its feature creature - we get to eyeball the behemoths in Jurassic World from jump. Sure as tootin' there'll be a sequel; it made too much money for there not to be one. And I wouldn't mind at all if Chris Pratt were there and also that one raptor ("You my boy, Blue."). I WOULD mind terribly if anyone else from this movie showed up because I couldn't stand anyone else.
In a way, it's a shame that CGI technology has advanced to this state. Nowadays, we take all that dazzle for granted. But you can't deny that the dinosaurs look amazing, that the Indominus Rex looks menacing as sh--. What I didn't like? I didn't like whenever Vincent D'Onofrio graced the screen as that dickish front man of that private security firm, although, at some level, I did appreciate his smirky, c0ck-of-the-walk Brian Dehenny impersonation. I wasn't as appreciative of Bryce Dallas Howard's doing her impersonal best as the theme park's most dedicated company (wo)man. Here's a drinking game: take a slug whenever she mentions the word "asset."
The best moments are reserved for the occasional nod to the original film and for whenever Pratt is hanging out with his dodgy pack of velociraptors and, also, for near the end when Pratt and company attempt a last-ditch effort to take out the Indominus Rex. That entire showdown - of old school vs. new school - is dope and, in fact, is worth the price of admission alone. I am basically sold on Chris Pratt as an action hero. He's effortlessly charming and his humor works and he's solid in the action sequences and I'm willing to give him a chance should he land the Indiana Jones role.
More nitpicks off the top of my head:
- Hey, concerned about the island's most dangerous experimental predator what's kept isolated in a paddock? No worries, we hired one fat security guard to keep an eye on things.
- Who thought it was a good idea to have the CEO, who also happens to be an inexperienced chopper pilot, fly on that do-or-die mission?
- The movie wants us to believe that a woman in high heels can outrun a T-Rex.
- Anyone catch the scene where Pratt gets off his vehicle just in time to run into a woman with, coincidentally, two rifles, one of which she casually hands off to Pratt in passing?
- So, let me get this straight, Jurassic World's upper management - those directly responsible for running the theme park - doesn't have a clue as to what hybrid bits the Indominus Rex is made out of? That seems like an egregious lapse in safety protocol and good judgment.
- I got seriously invested in the kids' parents getting a divorce... Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Man, I really disliked these kids and their unnecessary sub-plot.
- What does it say about the character work when the strongest emotional connection is between Pratt and his velociraptors?
My favorite line? It's Pratt's retort when he's asked to track some missing kids: "I was with the Navy, not the Navajo."
I remember, after having watched this movie, getting this sudden urge to purchase a Mercedes and drive it to Starbucks. I wonder why.
Is it Oscar worthy? Of course not. But I would assume most people know what to expect when they go see a summer action blockbuster movie and this movie delivers on that. Let your brain disengage, try not to over-think it, and have some fun.
My biggest criticism is not the script (okay) or the acting (good), but that all of the "background" dinosaurs (not the stars) are the same dull grays and browns. Would have loved to have seen a little time taken in the CGI to make the supporting cast of dinosaurs (triceratops, stegosaurus, apatosaurus, parasaurolophus, ankylosaurus) more colorful.
Hoping that this film does what the original did: create a whole new generation of dinosaur scientists.
