Jurassic World

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the genetically engineered dinosaur hunting ground and after a global corporation had opened a theme park on the same island of carnage and a destruction, a hybrid mega killer that would make Godzilla stop in his tracks escapes from his paddock. Now it is up to a cocky raptor trainer (Chris Pratt) to rescue two young visitors, kin to an uptight park staffer (Bryce Dallas Howard), and restore order to the island hopefully once and for all. The long awaited sequel to supposedly do justice to the original does succeed exceedingly well in the thrill department but is so incredibly stupid, not thought out, and too much of a facsimile of the first outing. And for a movie that cost 150 mil to make and raked in over a billion dollars worldwide, its aesthetic qualites resemble something that would play for laughs on the Syfy channel. Vincent D'onofrio is fun as a campy villain.
