If you’re looking for a philosophical storyline, scientific accuracy and realistic events, Jurassic World is not for you. But if you want to see a movie that will show you a bloody good time, WATCH IT AND WATCH IT NOW!
I was ecstatic when I heard a new Jurassic movie would be released, having loved the franchise since I was little. To this day, every time I see the raptor claw from Jurassic Park, I get chills.
Adam and I drove over to the Megabox in Gongju to get our dinosaur fix. I was not disappointed. The visual effects were just spectacular, and it was really cool to see John Hammond’s dream finally come to life. I was immediately sucked into this mind-blowing world, where the stars of the show were larger than life in the most literal sense of the phrase.
I’ve read complaints online about how the dinosaurs are not represented accurately…and I find this silly. Jurassic World is a movie, not a documentary. The dinosaurs are shown as they were in the first movie, and I loved that. Had the cunning, terrifying velociraptor suddenly become small and feathered, I would have been thoroughly disappointed. I watched the movie for the spectacle, and I educated myself about the scientific stuff after.
Overall, I absolutely loved this movie. The references to the first movie took me right back to my childhood, and the theme song made me smack Adam’s arm repeatedly in excitement. The genetically modified beast that was cooked up was really cool, and my favourites (the raptors) were as calculating and chilling as ever. I think Chris Pratt did brilliantly, and he got me to believe he truly had a bond with these creatures.
If you’re a 90s kid who enjoyed the 1993 flick, you should definitely give Jurassic World a watch.
