The newest installment in the Jurassic Park movies is a great summer flick. High adventure, laughs, screams...this movie has it all. The story is light and predictable, and yet still heartwarming and well done. In the same spirit as the first move, this one starts off innocent enough, "and then there is screaming and running." (quote: Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park.)
The premise is familiar. Someone decides it would be a good idea to open another dinosaur park on the same island as the original Jurassic Park. But, this time there is a twist. Kids today are jaded on regular dinosaurs, so genetic engineering is being used to create scarier monsters. How could that go wrong?
Of course they create the biggest, baddest dino ever, and of course it escapes confinement and goes on a killing spree. There are a couple of kids, again reminiscent of the original movie; a good family story; and even a little bit of romance. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt have nice chemistry and good banter. (I already loved Pratt from Guardians Of The Galaxy-another must see movie.) Vincent D'Onofrio is a great villain, and even the two boys were pretty good actors. And the effects were amazing!
I was skeptical of yet another Jurassic Park sequel, but was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Definitely worth catching on the big screen while it's still around.
