Jurassic World (2015)



Critic Consensus: Jurassic World can't match the original for sheer inventiveness and impact, but it works in its own right as an entertaining -- and visually dazzling -- popcorn thriller.

Critic Reviews for Jurassic World

All Critics (278) | Top Critics (45)

It is not much like the first one, but if you like a very well-designed and well-directed piece of dino-damaged cheese, then I think you'll have a good time. I certainly did.

As far as acting, the cast does well.

Phantom Tollbooth

This was never going be as good as Spielberg's masterpiece and, surprise, surprise, it isn't. It's simply a solid summer blockbuster and the second best of the series.

Jurassic World is intensely conscious of its Spielbergian forebear, doffing its cap in multiple nods and winks.

The Arts Desk

[Director Trevorrow's] vision for Jurassic World is enchanting, gratifying, and sure-handed in a way that's uncannily like Spielberg's early period.

In short, this film could have used a Rise of the Planet of the Apes treatment.

Audience Reviews for Jurassic World

It's probably not a popular opinion that this film was awful. It broke box office records and has made Chris Pratt an even bigger movie star than he already was. In reality the best parts of this film were in rehashing of the first film, "Jurassic Park." The characters were so bland that I wanted to pour salt on them for some flavor. While some of the dinosaurs were cool, and there were some inventive ideas, this was a film so clouded with illogical and boring humans. I just wanted the dinosaurs to win out. Everyone I saw it with agreed the best character was the final raptor, because they were the only one to show any character development.

"Jurassic World" is exactly what you'd expect: great dinosaur special effects and sound with minimal investment in characters and mass market, dumbed-down acting for the Hallmark Channel set. Chris Pratt's character was bland for a hero and I wanted to spit in Bryce Dallas Howard's face once I had my fill of her cutesy, precocious girl-woman act, but putting the milquetoast characters aside, the story is paced nicely and ultimately, the film is exciting.

Despite the philosophical issues teeming in the entire Jurassic concept and broached in the film as if by drive-by, the movie is non-challenging and unintelligent. More than anything, "Jurassic World" is simple fun -- and unlike the titular park, may prove to be a good attempt at resurrecting something thought long extinct.

Jurassic World is simply a summer blockbuster- heavily cliched...but it's so fun! I thoroughly enjoyed this film, it works in complete contrast to Mad Max- this film isn't original by any means, but it knows what it is and it knows how to appeal to the masses (as seen with the box office records its been breaking). Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard make a great duo navigating the life of the park and the outbreak of the hybrid. While Jurassic World doesn't go full on horror with its thrills and scares, there's still enough "jump out of your seat" moments. There are also throwbacks to the original films that die-hard fans will love. The special effects were pretty great (a little choppy at times) capturing the essence of the dinosaurs quite well. While this film certainly isn't ground-breaking or new it's still a good time to sit through- especially with friends!
Rating: 4/5
