Jurassic World (2015)

TOMATOMETER

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 (322) | Top Critics (48)

The characters are all paper-thin, but that doesn't matter because their sole purpose is to get chomped.

Jun 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.

Jun 15, 2015 | Full Review…

If you limit your expectations for Jurassic World to "more teeth," it will deliver on that promise. If you dare to hope for anything more-relatable characters, narrative coherence-you'll only set yourself up for disappointment.

Jun 13, 2015 | Full Review…

Trevorrow is having fun taking as little of this as seriously as he needs to.

Jun 12, 2015 | Full Review…

You don't go to the fourth Jurassic Park movie for up-to-date gender politics. You go for the crunchy dino-on-human action, and Jurassic World provides plenty of that.

Yawn

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

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.
