A Dino Disappointment

Director Colin Trevorrow brings back the prehistoric monsters to the big screen in Jurassic World, but this enthusiastically awaited film fails to meet high expectations of today's hard to please sci-fi audience. Bigger and toothier than ever before, these new genetically altered dinosaurs are sure to amaze and entertain the viewers but the loopholes in the script are unsettling.

Twenty-two years after the events of the original Jurassic Park, the dinosaur theme park is struggling to maintain the interest of their visitors which leads the park's operational manager, Claire, to create a bigger and more terrifying hybrid to re-ignite the theme's popularity. Things go horribly out of hand when this highly intelligent new breed escapes captivity and explores its place in the food chain.

This film vaguely reminds us about the 1993 original with similar terror scenes but with more teeth, more blood and kids in greater danger. It gives a deserving tribute to Jurassic Park as the nostalgia is well maintained making the film at certain scenes seem more like a remake than a sequel.

Bryce is outstanding as Claire who is naturally strong and comfortable in her high heels running away from giant dinosaurs as she thrives to protect the island and her two nephews.

Although virtually splendid, the film lacks imagination and creativity. Staged way into the future where cloned dinosaurs are successfully brought to live but the rest of the technologies like cars, guns and gadgets seem to be old fashioned, leaving the danger at hand bigger than the devices to cope with it. The film throws caution to air as practical considerations are kept at bay and certain issues are left without a closure.

Although, it leaves a lot of room for improvement, this film cannot be missed largely because it is part of a legendary franchise.
