Jurassic World Review
While watching the first Jurassic Park, passion and creativity leap from the screen and create one of the most innovative and creative films of all time. While watching Jurassic World, mediocrity sucks the life out of this once imaginative franchise. From the start of the film, we get cliche after cliche, including, but not limited to, the workaholic who needs to enjoy life, the parents going through a divorce, the distracted teen, the wide-eyed child, and many more. Each of these cliches take away any likability from the characters. The only exception is Chris Pratt’s Owen. He is not a highly original character, but he is a highly enjoyable one. That is because of Pratt’s natural charisma. The downside to his character is the forced love story between him and Claire. They have little chemistry, making their romantic scenes not at all charming, instead it just hauled the film. I do need to give credit where credit is due. The action is at least entertaining, and the final battle is pure popcorn fun! The downside to the action is the special effects. At times they great, but at others they are incredibly fake looking and feel out of place. The original had lively effects that absorbed you into the world of Jurassic Park, mixing CGI and animatronics seemlessly. Here the effects just feel like computer effects instead of the dinosaurs they are trying to replicate. Can I say Jurassic World is an awful film? Not at all, it’s just a generic summer blockbusters, nothing more, nothing less, but I would recommend it at least for a little shut your mind off fun.
