Universal Studios has upped its game since the last Jurassic movie in 2001. Unlike the other movies, it featured today's technology and more interactions between dinosaurs and people. The special effects made the movie even more realistic with the various rides the movie promoted, the sonograms of the dinosaurs, and the park itself! It reminded me of Universal Studios, as if it was a dinosaur-filled counterpart. I watched all the movies the night before but nothing could’ve prepared me for this!
The other movies focused on being stuck on the island and trying to get off. This movie focused on more than that. A family sends their two sons on a family weekend with their aunt who works for Jurassic World. The boys are given VIP treatment, including a tour of the park. As they go throughout the park, we get to witness the beautiful atmosphere created by director Colin Trevorrow. When the boys are in the sphere which allows you to tour within the dinosaurs' environment, the dinosaur that got loose gets the sphere and crushes the ball, causing the boys to be in mortal danger in the middle of the island. The aunt and boys have to battle countless dinosaurs to get to the destruction of the dinosaur with the help of the T-Rex and the raptors. The movie had my family and I on the edge of our seats.
The cast included two young boys played by Ty Simpkins, whom you may recognize as the boy in Insidious, and Nick Robinson, the young teenager from Frenemies. The women were swooning over Chris Pratt who played the hero Owen Grady in the movie, a motorcycle-riding raptor trainer. The movie in total is about 120 minutes but time flies with all the action!
