When compared to 'Jurassic Park', yes both this and the third film seem bad. So stop comparing. Both this and the third movie are good in their own right.
I've not got a lot to say about this specifically, other than that really. It's just pretty good.
I am a fan of the first and I am a fan of the second.
I expected to see a good film, going into the first. I saw a great film.
I was hopeful this would be at least good, as the trailers didn't make me that excited, but I was very pleased.
Thoughts that I wrote after seeing it:
I thought it was brilliant.
I'm not sure why some have a negative reaction towards the first; I think after 'Harry Potter', 'Percy Jackson', 'Twilight', 'The Hunger Games' and 'Divergent', people are just getting bored of YA's. But I thought the first was really good (a little bit eh at the end but it is just following the book). And 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' is debatably better.
It's more revealing of the overarching story and considering I usually am not a fan of zombie/infected films (which this sort of is), I think this was well written as a story.
It does well to combine that with a lot of action and while sounding like a quote from a potentially paid review, it was gripping throughout really.
Not that 'Harry Potter' is perfect but I'm not sure any YA is going to beat it in my mind. Given that, the 'Maze Runner' series does very well to be my second favourite YA in terms of good writing and enjoyability.
People criticise this unjustly. Don't compare it to 'Jurassic Park' if you love that movie otherwise you're obviously going to be disappointed. This is just a good movie with a simple story, and it does well, I think, to try something new, moving from Tyrannosaurus Rex to Spinosaurus, and building upon the intelligence of the Velociraptors. It also has a particularly good other scene but I won't specify that her for the sake of not spoiling it.
There is however, a more comedic/lighthearted aspect to this film with the phone - you'll probably understand what I mean when you watch it, and that does make the film seem less believable but still, if you take the film just as it is, I think it's a solid (simple) film.
