A very impressive movie. It's main attraction is the dinosaurs, no doubt about that. But they're good enough to sell the movie for anyone, and the movie still has likable and easy-to-identify characters, even if they are simple. You care enough about them to enjoy their interactions when the dinosaurs aren't on-screen, and you want (most of) them to live. The story is also a good enough reason for these events to be happening, and all of these things put together just right allows me to enjoy the more simple and fun elements (the dinosaurs).
