“Jurassic World” is a fun ride and a much more interesting movie compared to the previous movies in the series. It brings new life to the franchise, and does something that is different from the last two movies all while still keeping things familiar.

This time around, the park has been successfully operating without any trouble for the past ten years. The first half of the film does a great job showing the wonder and awe that movie goers and park viewers have on seeing the park for the first time and seeing what it has to offer to them. It doesn’t matter if it was the ever popular Tyrannosaurus Rex or Triceratops, Mosasaurus, or any other dinosaurs that we have (or haven’t) seen in the previous movies. But the major highlight in this: the simple sight of the park operating smoothly without any signs of trouble in sight!

But this awe and wonder doesn’t last: something does go wrong in the park, leading to a disaster that threatens the park’s ability to operate and places peoples’ lives at risk.

Once we reach this part of the movie, the wonder and awe disappears and is replaced with horror and fear, as the various characters take the chance to handle the situation as best as possible.

All of these different characters, from Chris Pratt to Bryce Dallas Howard, crush together creating conflict on the human side of the fence while on the dinosaur side, the “Indominus Rex” roams free and wild across the park.

In a way, the second half of the movie isn’t as great as the first half but in spite of this, the characters and the action is done well enough that the movie remains a fun ride. There are a number of factors for this besides the main cast, for example the two children characters are funny and interact well with the other characters as well as acting as the means of bringing Owen Grady (Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Howard) together.

Despite it’s obvious flaws, Jurassic World is a fun movie to watch and much better than the last two films of the series.
