The last time we heard about anything Jurassic was in 2001 when Jurassic Park III was released. That might have been 14 years ago but the latest movie, Jurassic World happens 22 years after the first Jurassic Park movie.
It takes us back to Isla Nublar, the island where the first theme park was. In its place is the kind of theme park John Hammond had always dreamt about. For Jurassic newbies, Hammond was the guy who owned the park where dinosaurs chased people around in the dark – go get the movie, it is scary in an exciting way. Back to the present. Jurassic World may not be under Hammond but it features four Velociraptors similar to the ones in the first movie.
The raptors, Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo (did anyone else continue this military alphabet) are trained by Owen Grady (Pratt) who together with Claire Dearing (Howard) are always looking for new ways of bringing in more tourists. The owner, Simon Masrani (Khan) suggests a hybrid dinosaur as a new attraction. The park’s geneticists use DNA from four types of dinosaurs to create a dinosaur they name Indominus Rex. The name alone should give you a glimpse into what follows right? This is especially since Dr Henry Wu (Wong) is the head of the genecists. Dr Wu worked for Hammond and still holds a grudge.
The thrills begin when the Indominus Rex breaks out of containment wreaking havoc on the visitors, who include Dearing’s nephews. Now it is up to the park’s employees to ensure that the rex’s distraction is contained as soon as possible. It goes without saying that this is the kind of movie 3D was made for.
Given that fans have been waiting for this movie since the producers started talking about it in 2005, the anticipation alone is bound to make it a hit. However, there have been several paleontologists (those guys who study dinosaurs) who have criticised the movie for being scientifically inaccurate. But they forget that as Director Trevorrow put it, “the film… is a science-fiction movie and not a documentary”.
