Romantic leads [Pratt and Dallas Howard] are...charisma-free... but that doesn't mean there aren't some worthy moments: the Indominus Rex getting straight up savage on a group of overmatched mercenaries in the jungle.
Summer moviegoers cannot live by superheroes alone, and darn if the entire time my grown-up, film critic head was saying, This is so stupid, some little-kid corner of my heart wasn't crowing, and yet so awesome.
Jurassic World is fun if you don't compare it to the original, if you look at it as a standard monster movie and if you can get through the first thirty minutes of it. If you can do that, definitely go see it.
