Synopsis: The park is open. John Hammond's crazy-awesome dream of a dinosaur theme park made possible by impossible science is finally a reality, but the people want more. In a desperate attempt to rekindle the magic of Jurassic World, the park's creators unleash a monstrosity.
Rating: PG-13 for some language and the obligatory dino-on-human violence.
Review: The ancient Delphic maxim "know thyself", the idea of identifying what one is good at and sticking to it, seems to have come up in early discussions before this film was made, dictating a simple formula: more dinosaurs, less of everything else.
At no point during the two-hour run time of Jurassic World does director Colin Trevorrow try to live up to the impossibly high standards set by Steven Spielberg 22 years ago. Instead, he constructs a new world for the dinosaur-obsessed to play in, with a little 1993 nostalgia sprinkled here and there. Every kid who saw the original Jurassic dreamed of what the actual functioning park would be like, desperately hoping to some day experience a place where dinosaurs once again roamed the earth -- confined to their cages, or course, and not terrorizing the kitchen staff.
