Jurassic World

Twenty-two years after the disastrous events of Jurassic Park, the vision of founder John Hammond is now reality - a fully-functional theme park open to the public, and populated by dinosaurs.

While staff member Owen (Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy) conducts research into the fearsome velociraptor, scientists at the park are cooking up a new, genetically-modified dinosaur in the lab... Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village), Vincent D'Onofrio and Jake Johnson co-star, while Colin Trevorrow directs what is just his second feature film after indie charmer Safety Not Guaranteed.

Returning to the site of 1993’s Jurassic Park, now open as a fully-fledged tourist attraction, Jurassic World has endured a similarly torturous development process (albeit with fewer dinosaur-related deaths). Emerging surprisingly lean and mean after years of script splicing in Hollywood’s writers labs, comparisons with Spielberg’s original are inevitable, if perhaps unfair.

The problem isn’t that dinosaurs have ceased to impress us, but that dinosaurs alone are not enough to sustain us.

A fiendishly crafted blockbuster: old-fashioned thrills, heroism and romance, locked inside a smart, self-aware shell.

While slickly enjoyable in parts, the biggest misstep here comes by puncturing Spielberg’s grandeur.

It must be the first $150 million monster movie to question whether bigger is always better.

It’s fun, but it’s ultimately more of the same in brand-new packaging.

Fresh and thrilling, and while it often tips its hat to the original, it’s not a slavish copy...
