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.

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

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.

While the 3D beasts are undeniably impressive, their human counterparts remain resolutely two-dimensional thanks to a script that mistakes tone-deaf jumps and starts for emotional arcs.

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.

It's a letdown in a number of respects, but as a diehard fan of the original, it's tough not to have some fun returning to Isla Nublar and seeing visitors enjoy the attractions as John Hammond intended.

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

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.

Jurassic World is precisely what every Jurassic Park fan would hope it might be. It delivers fair and square.
June 12, 2015
At its best, it's good enough to take your mind off its worst, which is saying a lot.

Pratt proved in "Guardians" that he could handle hunky leading man roles, and his combination of physicality, charisma and attitude prove hard to resist one more time.

I'm not sure what specific qualities "Jurassic World" could be said to possess, beyond a vague sense of its own importance that ... comes across in the finished product as preening self-congratulation.

"We want to be thrilled," says a visitor at the start of the film. Hear, hear.
June 11, 2015
Jurassic World is ersatz Spielberg. It's a knock-off that, even with the brand tag of the filmmaking titan as executive producer, makes the credit feel faux.
June 11, 2015
I enjoyed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to exactly the same degree I enjoyed Jurassic World.
June 11, 2015
In terms of its thrills and graphic design, it still looks like a low-to-mid-range Spielberg effort.
June 11, 2015
Jurassic World never breaks out of its own confines of homage and imitation. The movie ends up as an awkward, ungainly hybrid: large, but inconsequential.
