Messy nostalgia trip could bring back turtleneck sweaters.

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.

As is the vogue among the current generation of blockbusters, it feels like the entire point here is to evoke memories of older, better movies. By those admittedly narrow standards, Jurassic World constitutes a roaring, stomping triumph.

Die-hard fans insist no new 'Jurassic' movie could ever touch the original. Oh yeah? Come again? 'Jurassic World' just completely blew the doors off 'Jurassic Park.'

For long periods, to be fair, Jurassic World is easy to watch and pretty entertaining, especially when Chris Pratt is on the screen.

Narratively continuous to the original film but slightly disregarding its two sequels, Jurassic World is a spectacular rush of furious energy, spellbinding awe and alarming terror from beginning to end.

This new one is easily the best sequel of the bunch. It's frequently exciting, happily, forgivably ludicrous if a little too pumped-up for its own good and less than memorable.

... a lot of fun, part mindless two-hour theme park ride, part self-aware sequel where supposedly smart people make a cascade of bad decisions.

So adeptly does it roll sugar rush and brain freeze into one that it might as well come served in a paper cone.

What could possibly go wrong? Luckily for viewers, everything-and almost immediately.

This is a top popcorn movie, so to speak, but just lacks the sheer magnitude in ingenuity of the original.

This fourth instalment does well to supplement the 3D spectacle with lively characters and good humour.

If its primary function is ultimately to remind all the oldies how brilliant Jurassic Park was, and simultaneously to inspire a new generation of kids to go and check it out, then that's surely a good thing.

The price you pay for delightful dinosaur carnage is, as always, dwelling in the Spielberg-patented world of regressive gender roles and worship of the white middle-class nuclear family.

The film may not match the brilliance of the original, but it definitely rekindles some of those feelings as an entertaining bright spot this summer season.

It is not much like the first one, but if you like a very well-designed and well-directed piece of dino-damaged cheese, then I think you'll have a good time. I certainly did.

As far as acting, the cast does well.

This was never going be as good as Spielberg's masterpiece and, surprise, surprise, it isn't. It's simply a solid summer blockbuster and the second best of the series.

Jurassic World is intensely conscious of its Spielbergian forebear, doffing its cap in multiple nods and winks.

[Director Trevorrow's] vision for Jurassic World is enchanting, gratifying, and sure-handed in a way that's uncannily like Spielberg's early period.
