Jurassic World is a sequel to the original film Jurassic Park. Jurassic World is an amusement park, with rides and attractions and live dinosaurs. This movie revolves around brothers Gray (Ty Simpkins) and Zach (Nick Robinson) and their trip to the amusement park to have a family weekend with their Aunt Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) who is a manager at the park. But as Claire stated, kids are beginning to look at dinosaurs like “an elephant from the city zoo” and the park attendance is declining. Therefore, the park needs a new attraction to re-spark the public’s interest and as a result, the scientists at Jurassic World have created a new hybrid dinosaur called the Indominus Rex, made from the DNA of a T-Rex and other classified species. However as an animal trainer at the park, Owen (Chris Pratt) says the dinosaurs are real animals and shouldn’t be treated like something they’re not, which he learned from his bond with the park’s raptors. As time goes on, Owen finds several problems with the new hybrid, and the attraction backfires quickly when the new dinosaur gets loose, killing the other dinosaurs in the park. As Owen says, “She didn’t eat them. She’s killing for sport.” This leaves Claire and Owen to fight for the lives of the public at the park, along with trying to save the lives of Claire’s nephews.
Sequels don’t tend to be as good as the first but Jurassic World was hard to beat with its fast paced action and adventure. This movie kept viewers on the edge of their seats in anticipation. The animation affects were stunning and the characters were believable. The violence and gory deaths might be disturbing to younger viewers, as well as adult language, and for these reasons, the movie is rated PG-13 and I would only recommend this film for ages 12 and up. But otherwise, this is a great movie to see with the family and for fans of Jurassic Park who are looking for even more action than the original.
