An underrated classic, its no Schindler's List, but it is one of my favorite movies ever.
This is a movie I don't know why I like soo much, I just do. I love the effects, and even like the directing. This is a movie I could just watch over, and over, and I'll still like it. In fact this is a movie that I like to see over and over.
Some don't like the acting, but I do, I didn't see anything wrong with it. But then again I'm not a critic. People also complained that there was no character development in this movie, but this is a movie about an island full of dinosaurs, what are the characters are suppose to learn from that experience, to never go to amusement park full of dinosaurs. No, this movie is simply to watch dinosaurs eat people, that's it, no deep moral or great character development, its just about dinosaurs. If you want great dinosaurs, you get great dinosaurs.
This movie is just like all other action movies with great effects, but I like to think of it as something more then that. I feel like it's just over all BETTER then those other movies, I don't know why, I just think that. I think it's better then Avatar, Transformers, and especially Star Trek (God I hate that movie).
A lot of you would disagree with me, but like I said in my other reviews, I base my reviews on how I felt personally about the movie and what the movie is suppose to be. This movie is just an action/adventure movie about dinosaurs, and that's what it is. Its nothing more, except that it is More. You go see this movie to see great dinosaurs, and you do, that's what the movie was trying to do, and it did it. That's what this movie is, just to watch for fun, and I LOVE this movie for it. This movie is truly ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES EVER. 5/5
