Jurassic World

Critics 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.

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Jurassic World

    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.
