WEEKEND REVIEW OF JURASSIC WORLD

year: 2015 rating: *
The wasted potential of the title alone, an entire WORLD as opposed to a PARK, is the first thing very, very wrong here – and this JURASSIC sequel/reboot is flawed beyond extinction.

Ripping off ALIENS, a troop of soldiers are viewed on their own monitors, falling prey to a gigantic combination of T-Rex and… other mischievous ingredients at the famous (or infamous) Theme Park finally open to the public, and not just in test-only mode or posthumous ruins…

The Shark Still Rules, Steven
Actually, it’s been going for a little while, and people are already tired of normal dinosaurs roaming around: thus the edgy hybrid was born. And if up to leading lady and semi-villainous Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, whose nephews visit the way John Hammond’s grandchildren did in the original, the fierce monstrosity would have its very own limousine...

But our token action hero Chris Pratt knows better… Much, much better… With breezy idealism intact, and an ability to maneuver Raptors like sheep, unlike his GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY intrepid slacker he’s just too perfect to relate with. And, being this film’s Sam Neill, there's a potential Jeff Goldblum sarcastic sidekick who winds up completely benign. So all Pratt’s Owen does is argue with the slowly-thawing Claire as they attempt to rescue the boys, who, like everyone else in human form, we hardly get to know at all… Especially one jerk wanting the dinos for military gain: Talk about cliché.

The real crime of WORLD is the lack of JURASSIC: the impressive location is a mere afterthought for a dull Monster Movie while the other neat looking dinosaurs are hardly shown at all. Just because the fictional public within this story are tired of them doesn't mean we are.
