Going into this film it seems you not only have to suspend your disbelief but also all logical thought. The problem with Jurassic World is that it continually relies on the stupidity of humans to continue the story, or should I say rehash the story. Once again dinosaurs are out of control, who would have thought.
From a movie making perspective, this film is brilliant. The CG seems like a major improvement on the last film and the tension and suspense within the direction is done incredibly well that it actually does frighten you at times. The lighting and set pieces remind me of something out of a David Yates film. The story leaves me a little unsatisfied though. Whilst there is a little bit of story progression, this just felt like a bridging movie. Though I did like the occasional nod to the original Jurassic Park.
The only point within the story that actually struck a chord with me was at the start when you saw the Brachiosaurus left behind on the island. This was crushing and definitely the saddest thing in any Jurassic Park/World film.
The acting wasn’t the greatest – whilst Bryce Dallas Howard is a lot better in this than the last film, it seems Chris Pratt is still only there to smoulder at the camera between his lines. A nice surprise is the talent of young Isabella Sermon who played Maisie who out-acted everyone in the film.
