Movies: Jurassic World

(Drivebycuriosity) -What happens when you clone a very smart dinosaur? You got a problem. This is the idea of the "Jurassic Park" franchise. The topic reached a new peak in "Jurassic World", the newest installment of the series (imdb).

My wife and I invested 41 bucks into 2 tickets for the IMAX 3D-version. The money was well spent. We had a hell of a lot of fun watching the dinosaurs chasing people. Who can escape and who not? The film`s dramaturgy is well balanced, nail-biting action mixed with funny scenes, and there is even place for some romantics. As usual the makers quoted a lot of classics like Godzilla, Hitchcock`s Birds, Pitch Black, which amplified the fun.

The stars of the movie are of cause the dinosaurs, there are tiny & cute ones and funny dinosaur pets, but the story belongs to the big predatory monsters of course. I especially enjoyed the flying predators, but my favorites are the park's four - half tamed - velociraptors, named Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo; smart, swift, elegant beasts, which looked and behaved like real predators. Jurassic World looked very real thanks to the computer generated effects (CGI) by Industrial Light and Magic and the 3D was well done.

The solid cast, including Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio & Chris Pratt, had just a supporting role, but that is ok for a dinosaur spectacle.

Jurassic World is the perfect summer movie and the record box office numbers are well deserved.
