Movie Info

Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the massive creature escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it's up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.

Critic Reviews for Jurassic World

All Critics (351) | Top Critics (75) | Fresh (248) | Rotten (103)

  • Jurassic World is a visually striking thrill, packed with enough adventure to leave even the most cynical 21st century viewer in awe. Though the storyline itself brings little originality, its cheesiness is oddly endearing.

  • The whole thing is an elaborate fantasy, so it seems a bit churlish to say, "that's not believable!" But even a film like this needs some internal logic.

  • Jurassic World is the reason summer movies exist.

    October 20, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The characters are all paper-thin, but that doesn't matter because their sole purpose is to get chomped.

    June 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • So basically, Jurassic World is a big-budget indictment of corporate greed, jammed with product placement for Samsung and Mercedes-Benz and Beats by Dre and Coca-Cola.

  • There is plenty here to divert, but little to leave you enraptored. Such is the fate of the sequel: Bigger. Louder. Fewer teeth.

Audience Reviews for Jurassic World

  • Jun 13, 2016
    Not as good as the original, but superior to 2 & 3, Jurassic World is an entertaining thriller. They've come so far with technology, the dinosaurs look as real as ever. The one thing the last 3 movies never got right though was the plot. Ignore this and you're probably going to enjoy the movie a good deal.

    Acceptable for a blockbuster release, though only fun in theatres.

    Fun fun movie with lots of problems though. Some poor characterization, feels very generic at times and it doesn't make as much of a impact as the original. Despite those negatives, the film is a fun ride and Jurassic Park fans will be pleased despite the negatives.

    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.
