    Just got back from seeing it and thought it was basically terrible. I imagine if The Asylum made a Jurassic Park knock-off with a bigger budget than usual, it would be this. I really missed having a character I could care about, like Dr. Grant or Dr. Sattler or Ian Malcom. It easily has the most mean-spirited and sadistic kill of the franchise, too, which I found a little disturbing. It'd be one thing if it was a bad guy getting his comeuppance, like Peter Ludlow in The Lost World, but instead it's just a helpless innocent bystander and I thought it was really overdone. And I lost track of all the obvious product placements. When Chris Pratt hunkered down next to a park display with a window logo for Pandora jewelry prominently framed behind him, I just about burst out laughing.

    My review as it's rather long and rambly (heck the first paragraph is just about my thoughts on the other movies then this one) will be in spoiler tags... happening right below you.

    I liked it, but not as much as I wanted to.

    The dinosaur scenes are all great. The climax, especially, was amazing and had me on the edge of my seat. It was good stuff. I also liked the directors social commentary on the state of Hollywood sequels always feeling the need to be bigger and more destructive.

    Unfortunately, the writing was a mess, and all the characters were either annoying, bland, underdeveloped, or boring stereotypes. The villain was especially disappointing; how did D'Onofrio go from a multi-layered villain like Fisk to such a cartoony, mustache-twirling lame-o? The kids were also very grating.

    Still, it was fun, and the dino action alone is worth a ticket if you're into that. But man, the humans really bring it down.

    Went to it this morning (two new movies within 24 hours? I must be crazy!).

    This was the best movie since the first one. It was great to finally see Jurassic Park fully realized (sad John Hammond wasn't alive to see it), and is a place I'd want to visit. What I found most interesting is how, despite the magnificent achievement of a theme park with living, breathing dinosaurs, it's not enough, hence the park resorting to gene splicing to create new dinosaurs to attract customers. That's good commentary on how jaded consumers can get, and may even be a subtle dig at the audience ("Another Jurassic Park? Yawn...").

    I also enjoyed the villain, not so much for the villain himself, but what he represented. He was convinced dinosaurs could solve the military's problems, and considering our military-industrial complex always looking for new ways to combat the enemy of the moment, this was incredibly relevant. I liked how he kept coming up with new arguments to take over the raptors for his own purposes, in a desperate attempt to convince Owen to go along with his plans.

    Basically I loved how the movie got back to the "playing God" theme of the first movie, which the second and third (especially the third) lacked.

    But of course, the big highlight here were the action scenes, and they delivered. But unlike Mad Max, which just dropped the viewer into everything, in Jurassic World they built everything up first so there was a reason to care about what was happening.

    Other stuff was fun: The fact that the old Jurassic Park was abandoned, the appearance of the T-Rex in the climax, and the raptor training which was far-fetched but not to the point of being preposterous.

    My only real complaint was the product placement, which was pretty blatant. They even had a cameo from Jimmy Fallon in there!... because hey, he got the Tonight Show last year! Otherwise, this was a lot of fun. If you were disappointed in Lost World and JP3, give Jurassic World a shot.

    A more detailed review, now that I've had the time to collect the rest of my thoughts.

    ****

    Basically awful. This is essentially Jurassic Park filtered down to the level of bargain basement generic summer action movie. It fails to create any sense of magic or awe the way the original film did, or even the previous sequels, instead trading them in for adrenalized dino action with cheap thrills and cardboard fodder. I imagine if mockbuster masters The Asylum ever made a Jurassic Park rip-off with a bigger budget than usual, it would be this.

    And it takes for-ev-er to get going! Even though in the original film nothing much happens until nearly 40 minutes in, you still felt a sense of excitement. Most of the movie is build-up until the final act, when it becomes all special effects and almost feels like Michael Bay took over the action. I missed having characters I could care about, like Dr. Grant, Dr. Sattler, Ian Malcolm, Tim and Lex. The characters here are either so badly acted (Bryce Dallas Howard being one of the worst offenders) or badly written that I just didn't care about any of them. Well, the younger brother was cool. He was actually excited and having fun. I liked him.

    I know that in these kinds of movies there are going to be innocent characters who bite it, but one kill here is the most mean-spirited and sadistic of the whole series. It would be one thing if it was a villain getting his comeuppance, but instead it's a helpless innocent bystander, and that the film seems to delight in showing her agonizing death I found more than a little disturbing. I also lost track of the product placements. When Chris Pratt hunkered down near a window with a logo for Pandora jewelry prominently framed behind him, I just about burst out laughing. Worse still, it dumbs down the raptors (the most fearsome dinos of the series, even more than the T-rex) to little more than pets who obey commands. The movie tries to make us care about them the way we would a beloved family pet. People in the audience were actually "aww"ing when they got injured or killed! You're not supposed to look upon raptors with affection. You're supposed to be scared you-know-what-less of them.

    To top it all off, the big climactic showdown was lame and, as others have pointed out, almost crossed the line toward ripping off last year's Godzilla. As enjoyable as the previous three films were, this one marks a huge drop-off for the series. Although my expectations were low, I didn't expect it to be quite so bad with Steven Spielberg's name attached. It's probably a good idea not to entrust your multimillion dollar summer tent pole to a relatively inexperienced director with only an indie comedy to his name.

    The...uh....180 million dollar opening it's probably going to make and the rather favorable reviews unfortunately suggest that it was a good idea. Sorry dude.

    Well, it's just my opinion on the movie's quality. Besides, everybody knows that movie audiences can easily fall for anything, regardless if it's actually good or not. Transformers movies any one?

    Watch what you say about the Transformers movies now. You might start sounding like me ;).

    "Well, I ain't got no one sleeping with me, and you ain't got nowhere that you need to be, well maybe I love you, but maybe I'm just kind of bored. Well, it is what it is, till it ain't anymore."
    Kacey Musgraves

    This kind of was what it was. Dumb summer fun, an old-style monster movie with the best special effects modern technology can buy. The final 30 minutes were basically what everyone was hoping that Gareth Edwards' Godzilla would be, I think. Most of the dialogue was about as awkward as two virgins having sex, but it was all about dino action, not character development, and dino action we got. Trevorrow doesn't have Spielberg's sense of style or suspense for action sequences and is really frantic, but hey, dinos vs. dinos? That's cool. The whole enterprise is hilariously silly-raptors who're good guys? But the movie has the sense to know that. In the end, it's totally disposable and forgettable.

    And Vincent Donofrio gets eaten like Paul Reiser did.

    I was kind of disappointed with the design for the I-Rex. It just looked like a bigger dinosaur, basically, the fact that it had all of those genetic modifications should've made it look like something from Tsuburaya-land.

    "Well someone has to stay behind."
    When they're evacuating the island, no, no one has to stay behind. The only reason you stayed behind was to be the one to open the gate.

    The gasoline being there after 23 years was dumb, but hey, everything in this movie was stupid. Screenwriting was clearly not the top consideration, the top consideration was dinosaurs fighting each other.

    Do they not have an override switch for the rolling ball things?

    This whole franchise is a one-trick pony. It's "dinosaurs get loose, eat people, and smash stuff." That's pretty much it.

    It was a mess of story elements glued around the set pieces.

    The box office 1990s nostalgia is officially in full swing judging by the box office of this. Now can I get revivals of SWAT Kats and Pirates of Dark Water? A conclusion for Samurai Jack? Know what the ending for Reboot was supposed to be?

    Bryce Dallas Howard is basically written as "Tightly wound career woman who desperately needs to get laid. My inner feminist rankles at the notion that a powerful career woman needs sex and handsome guy to loosen her up. She was literally shedding clothing as the movie went along. She was eye candy for the guys, Pratt was a eye candy for the girls, and both characters had the thematic depth of cartoon characters. Pratt is a handsome man, I'm not going to lie.

    Every flick this summer has an uphill battle to beat Fury Road. That was a better action flick than pretty much anything else, a flat out masterpiece. San Andreas was like watching paint dry. Tomorrowland was at least ambitious, if a colossal misfire. Age of Ultron was overstuffed and undercooked.

    The whole "family" subplot was entirely pointless. Judy Greer basically called her sister and said "I love you, our mom died." None of it actually led anywhere. The human drama, such as it was, was filler to get to the next scene of dinosaurs fighting dinosaurs, dinosaurs eating people, or dinosaurs fighting people with guns.

    That wasn't my point though, I simply expressed the irony of your closing sentence. There's you expressing how it was a bad idea to entrust the franchise to an unknown and then theres the fact it just made half a billion in one weekend. It's just hilarious...thats all.

    And real quick, about your review. This was hands down the best sequel of the franchise, even if you take into account that this is basically a SyFy film with a 200 million dollar budget. Because.....come on...lets be honest, both the Lost World and JP 3 were absolute garbage and not to mention glaring stains on the franchise. It amazing me that you think THIS movie was a drop off for the franchise. Dude, like the franchise was already at the bottom, at least this film made the dinosaurs cool again. And at least it was fun. I'd rather see Chris Pratt riding with his raptor bros thru the jungle to hunt down a murderous dinosaur than have to watch raptors do a Benny Hill routine like they did in Lost World. And yeah sure, the ending was reminiscent of last years Godzilla fight but its not the first time we've gotten a Godzilla inspired climax (T-Rex rampaging thru San Diego says hi).

    I'm not trying to say your opinion is wrong, I just find it humorous since I think you have a rather interesting idea of what a "good" film is.

    I still contend that JP3 was not that bad (its goal was simply to be a 90-minute action thriller and it succeeded on those terms), but if anything, that was a more unnecessary sequel than JW was. World brought the series full circle: We had a guy who wanted to make a theme park of dinosaurs, and in this film it finally came to pass.

    This is a strange criticism. What did you want her to do: Wear that business suit the entire movie? I will say that it was illogical that she kept the high heels on for as long as she did, but otherwise I had no issue with her wardrobe.

    As for Claire's characterization, I didn't see an issue there either. Claire was a career-driven workaholic who didn't even know her nephews' ages, and was driven by guilt to rescue them when she realized they were in danger. She was also driven to redeem herself after her attitude in the first half of the movie, when she was more concerned with profits than ethics. It wasn't super deep or groundbreaking, but it worked for the purposes of the story and gave motivations to want her to survive.

    Old Jurassic Park Characters: Grumpy underwritten blowholes who yell at each other and spew technobabble bs about genetic code and supply-side economics, plus stupid kids ...and Ian Malcolm (thanks to Jeff Goldblum entirely)

    NEW Jurassic World Characters: Grumpy underwritten blowholes who yell at each other and spew technobabble bs about genetic code and supply-side economics, plus stupid kids ...and Owen Grady.

    Yeah don't complain about how Michael Chrichton's knack for creating bland loathsome ciphers who are just there to spew his partical physics philosophy somehow made characters more likable than the new ones, because they weren't.

    Wow, that's really cool.

    Poor Thor, though. It hasn't been an easy year for him...

    Looks like Hulk wants to pick a fight with the T-rex.

    I loved the movie.
    I think my only complaints were the kids were a little annoying (was I the only one who hoped they were killed in the sphere?) and the dinosaur gene-splicing with other animals to shut the Palentologists up. And I couldn't help but feel sorry for Claire's secretary.
    I loved both both the first and second Jurassic Parks, while the third one was had so many plot-holes it was inexcusable. This one was worthy of the franchise and the ending with the T-Rex and Velociraptor working together was the exact opposite of the first movie's ending it was poetic.
    The I-Rex's camouflage was unexpected and was likely taken out of the first Jurassic Park novel in which Carnotaurus had the ability to camouflage, which the I-Rex had DNA from. The Raptor being blown up is in the first novel too as well I-Rex inheriting the novel Raptor's enjoyment of killing.
    Henry Wu being taken away with a bunch of embryos sets up for another sequel, but I think the franchise needs to do away with the kid characters because while it wasn't bad in the first film, the kids in the other films just seemed to be there just to add kid characters and just end up in the way.

    Predictions before seeing movie: (correct/actual prediction in bold)

    OWEN GRADY, Chris Pratt - lives
    CLAIRE DEARING, Bryce Dallas Howard - lives
    CLAIRE'S NEPHEWS - lives
    SIMON MASRAN,I Irrfan Khan - dies
    VIC HOSKINS, Vincent D'Onofrio - dies
    DR HENRY WU, BD Wong - 60/40 60- dies 40- lives (BUT... maybe MIA)
    BARRY, Omar Sy - dies

    Only 2 predictions wrong. I said dead for Barry because he's a RAPTOR trainer. I really didn't know what to think regarding Dr Wu, which is why I did specific odds for him going into it. I was convinced he was dead in his first scene. I was convinced he was dead in his second scene. I was convinced his escape helicopter would crash somehow. Dr Wu lives! Why? So they can explain the...... *sigh*.... Sequel.

    I also predicted the raptors would only pretend to be trained, and when the time was right, turn on the humans. Your call if this prediction was true or not, if partially true is not acceptable.

    "And before you even knew what you had, you patented it. And packaged it. And slapped it on a plastic lunch box, and your selling! You want to sell it!!!!"
    - Dr Ian Malcolm on the Jurassic Park film franchise
    I've been saying for months now, "What is the point of this movie???!!". Aside to make money of course (see above quote). Why would anyone go to this theme park? Why and how would the rest of the world let this theme park be open? The film clearly acknowledges at least the first film, and the deaths in that movie. So obviously it's public knowledge, so again, WHY would anyone go to this theme park? I'm sorry, I have no sympathy what so ever for anyone that dies at Jurassic World. They knew the risks going into it.

    Actually, I love how the reference to the first film uses the word distasteful because of the characters who died in it. How is anything going on in Jurassic World not distasteful?

    On a more real life sense, how is it that a movie with this plot/story got made. EVERYTHING we get warned about in the first movie HAPPENS! How can you make this movie have a plot/story where it's "they were right all those years ago"? They were right in ALL films before it, but at least that wasn't as blatantly bad or obvious as it is here. And in those movies they each had something different plot/story or maybe most importantly message wise (ok, maybe there's no message in the 3rd one). What is the message here in Jurassic World? NONE. Except they were right about what they said in Jurassic Park.

    "Your scientists were preoccupied with whether or not that they could, they never stopped to think if they should!"
    - Dr Ian Malcolm on the development and production of Jurassic World, and the T Rex/Raptor dinosaur.
    Jurassic Park = $$$$$$$$$$$ There's no denying that. Just as Malcolm explains, they were preoccupied with that they could make a new installment, they never stopped to think if they should. Was there a reason why maybe a 4th installment was in development hell all these years, or a reason all we got was assorted rumors based on nothing all these years? Maybe they were thinking of a message for the film like the first and second did. Maybe they thought there were no more messages about man and nature they could tell. Maybe they thought that because the events in the first two films are public knowledge, people would know to never go to the island again. Let alone attempt to open up a theme park.

    Years ago I recall a rumor that the 4th movie would be about the grand kids, who have to go back to Site B because a disease that killed off the dinosaurs was brought back, threatening humans, and went back to get what they need to make a cure. Ok, there might not be a man/nature message there, but at least there would be a LEGIT POINT to go back. Other than because its a fully functional park, or a character got tricked to go back.

    On the T Rex/Raptor thing. We've all seen that the "regular" dinosaurs can't be controlled. Why would anyone think that this man made abomination was no different or worse than a "regular" dinosaur that clearly can not be controlled.

    "The lack of humility before nature that's being displayed here, um... staggers me."
    - Dr Ian Malcolm on the attractions in Jurassic World
    Probably the thing I saw here that shocked me the most was the petting zoo/baby Triceratops rides. Seriously???! The real life equivalent in zoo's all over are most likely just as bad, the difference is that the ignorance or irresponsibility that is so openly displayed is just too much to comprehend. What makes this worse to me than the real life equivalent, is that man has already gone against all the laws of nature, these attractions in the park just make it even worse.

    Speaking of irresponsibility. No surprise, it's all about the $$$$$$ which is why all the people are in charge are hesitant to take action early that will save lives because (god forbid) they'll lose money. You deserve to lose money if you haven't learned anything in the first movie. They seriously had no back up plans what so ever if anything went wrong? No indoor bunkers? No barred windows in the hotel rooms or secured plating that could easily be installed on hotel room windows/doors? If there is an emergency, safely and calmly proceed to your room, lock up, and wait. Is that so hard? And how about having evacuation boats on stand by just in case? All these precautions might look bad, but you know what also looks bad? Everything that happens in this movie.

    How could money even be an issue? A theme park with dinosaurs can't make money? I can't believe that, no matter how old the attractions could be, or many times everyone has seen the same dinosaurs. Or maybe attendance was down because the economy is bad and I bet it costs a fortune to just travel to the island. And more of a fortune to stay there. And pay for over priced concessions. And pay for Wi-Fi. Etc. If they wanted attendance to spike, maybe they should have had a coupon day. Or something.

    Seriously, has anyone learned ANYTHING from the previous movies, at the least the FIRST ONE? Well, yes of course, it would be the people who survived in the first film. They learned their lesson, and knew not to get involved in any of this nonsense. Which is EXACTLY why they aren't in this film.

    "The world is just changed so radically and we're all running to catch up. I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but look, dinosaurs and man. Two species separated by 65 million years of evolution just been suddenly thrown back in the mix together. How could we possibly have the slightest idea of what to expect?
    - Dr Alan Grant on the finished product of Jurassic World
    What to expect? Well, I wasn't expecting the return of InGen. How is this company still in business? Even if they just got bought out, why would the new owner keep it's name? Again, first film, public knowledge, the company name is tainted. Why would a totally different person take on the task of making a new theme park. Yeah, to honor John Hammond's wishes. Lol. That's not true. In the FIRST FILM Hammond learns his lesson. It didn't work the first time, so why would this be a smart business endeavor? It always is at first, and well, um. There it is.

    I also wasn't expecting a Jurassic Park movie that could easily be applied and mentioned with Transformers. Look, I was entertained by both Jurassic World and ALL the live action Transformers movies, but I know a Transformers movie when I see one (or when to use that analogy), and this is a Transformers movie.

    "I'm simply saying that life, uh, finds a way."
    - Dr Ian Malcolm on how the Jurassic Park franchise endures despite it's ups and downs.
    Most surprising as I wrote this up. All my questions, gripes, rants, etc go back to the first movie. I reference the others here and there, but if the movie is a partial reboot where the 2nd and 3rd films aren't in the continuity (but I believe they are), it still fails in the sense of logic, common sense, not learning anything, man/nature, because the first movie is still there. The Lost World was better than this. It did something different, served (somewhat) a point, and had a message for man/nature. This does something different (open theme park), yet serves no point and has no message at all for man to learn about nature. Man obviously hasn't learned anything, and never will.

    I knew this would make money. But I don't think anyone would have thought it would make what it already did and will. It's pretty obvious at this point there will be a sequel. And will there be a point to that one? Or a message that will be tied into the plot/story? Most likely not. At this point, the only thing in terms of a story/plot that would make sense, or serve a point, would be if our heroes (whoever they may be) nuke all the islands, but the evil villains who see $$$$$$ try to stop them. I can't think of anything else for a sequel that would make sense. Or serve a purpose. Actually, this makes sense and serves a purpose too. How about dinosaurs finally reclaim the earth and wipe out humanity? Man will finally learn his lesson, but pays the ultimate price to learn it. Or how about they clone Samuel L Jackson to take down the dinosaurs (because I assume if the technology exists to clone dinosaurs, it would be easier to clone humans). Seriously, I would be all in for that movie. Only because he'll say "Hold on to your butts.". Please. Please. Please, don't have the sequel be the militarized dinosaurs.

    Look, I knew this would be entertaining, and it was. Suspending disbelief in what your seeing is one thing. Suspending basic common sense in what your seeing is completely different, and impossible.

    You want a message? Here's a few.
    When Technology continues to grow, so does the Human ego. With the high-tech the new park had they probably got the approval for the park being safe enough.
    As long as money is the answer to problems, people will continue to do stupid things. This most likely helped Simon Masrani on the approval on the island too. Even in the real world money helps the super rich get what they want and away with whatever they want. Would cigarettes be legal if the companies didn't pay off politicians? Because they certainly don't just affect just the smokers that's for sure.
    And look at today's celebrity's and how they use their money getting away accidents that should've gotten them in jail for many years, the plastic surgeries, etc. If one has the money they are gonna think they can get away with anything.
    At least the new park took HUGE precautions and lasted over a decade before taking the stupid risk of creating a new dinosaur.
    And while Simon Masrani might've wanted a new dino it was Vic Hoskins who used that opportunity to have a living weapon created too. and even in real life the military do have weapons that are a extremely high-risk that will cause countless lives to be lost if used in the wrong way. We are destroying this planet because of our own greed for money so the island park being built anyway isn't that far off especially when people think "I learned my lesson and will try better this time" excuse.

    And this movie isn't a partial reboot because Vic Hoskins was hired by Simon after Vic took care of the Pteranodons that got loose after the third movie (though I wished that one film never happened).
    I've heard the next movies will get away from the island, and while that does sound like a nice change of scenery I would like to see a plot where on the island people have find a way off and deal with other dinosaurs without the specific smart evil ones (The Big Raptor,Spinosaurus,Idominus Rex) and show more plant eaters causing trouble (or not) too.

    Comates,

    Overall it was decent popcorn film but I was expecting so much more. Kinda how I felt about last years godzilla. The two brothers were annoying at times and were there just to be the main people in need of rescuing. Never really liked when everyone in a disaster movie except for lead, their love interest and family are nothing more than cannon fodder. They kept making a big deal about that guy being able to fly a helicopter like it was so humorous and unexpected for a person like him to be doing such a thing. What even made it worse was the way he was killed. Chris Pratt's character wasn't as badass as they portrayed him to be and ultimately felt like a useless protagonist after seeing how many people died in the end. The cg was good but at the same time no scene truly wowed me.

    The best thing I can say about it was that the cringeworthy moments were kept to a minimum and I got a few chuckles. Also, it beat the overrated avengers for #1 movie opening so that's cool.
