Welcome to Jurassic World: Intense, but Well Done.
This movie is awesome. It is truly amazing to see that sequels can end up very well done. The film takes place 20 years after the original film, and deals with Jurassic World, a theme park built on the grounds of the old park. In order to gain attraction, the park makes a genetically-modified hybrid dinosaur called the Indominus Rex. In a turn of events, it escapes, and Owen Grady a velociraptor specialist, must take it down, before it threatens the lives of the park's guests, and everyone else on the island. The violence gets pretty intense. Just like the previous films, it has some blood, and dinosaurs do kill people. A raptor bites off someone's hand, and then eats the person. There are several scenes involving the I-rex stepping on, eating, and injuring several people. There is a particularly intense scene, involving pterodactyls attacking park guests, lifting people, and dropping them. We see the injuries afterwards. In the whole scene though, we see really only one death. Also not so much on violent, but we hear a major character propose to use raptors as weapons of war. The film has a few innuendos, and there is a ton of consumerism (its a theme park after all). There is some swearing, but not as much as in the first film. However in the end, the film delivers the amazing visuals, awesome storytelling and powerful acting. Owen Grady is your typical awesome character, but you see that he cares about human life, along with the dinosaurs themselves. He does all he can to protect the people he is with, and keep them alive. (Also is drives a motorcycle with a bunch of velociraptors). Claire learns the importance of family and friendship. Gray and Zach learn what brotherhood really is, and several characters learn to do what's right. The film, like the first, brings a thought provoking message about the dangers of messing with nature, and also technology. In the end, it is able to make up for the failure of the third movie (I don't mention two because I thought that one is okay). 5/5 stars go to Jurassic World.
