Jurassic World USA 2015 – 124min.
22 years after the disaster on the island of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World has been open for business for 10 years, attracting visitors with species thousands of years old. 20,000 people come to the island every day, but behind the scenes, scientists are still playing god with live experiments. Indominus Rex, a genetically modified dinosaur created by Claire Dearing, escapes and spreads terror throughout the theme park. Raptor wrangler Owen Grady and his cool attitude are called in to save the day.
Has the wait been worth it? 14 years after the last installment in the franchise, Jurassic World hasn’t skimped on budget or special effects. It’s all there onscreen, designed as this summer’s blockbuster and sure to please nostalgic fans. With a genetically modified beast of superior intelligence, children in danger and a super hero who borders on the superhero (Chris Pratt from Guardians of the Galaxy, Zero Dark Thirty and Her) to replace Sam Neill (Dr. Alan Grant in Jurassic Park), the story is pretty much the same: just when everything is going well, scientists create a monster that takes off after the island’s visitors. Written and directed by Colin Trevorrow and produced by Steven Spielberg, the result is spine-tingling entertainment for young and old. As a plus, the excellent Omar Sy (The Intouchables ) is along for the ride.
