‘Jurassic World’ is out in theaters now and is garnering a steady influx of regular movie-goers and ‘Jurassic Park’ lovers. The movie, directed by Colin Trevorrow, stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
It is a modern addition to Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park franchise that was produced almost two decades ago. Bollywood actor Irfan Khan also holds a significant role, as the successful owner of Jurassic World.
In the movie, the events of Isla Nublar in Jurassic Park have been long forgotten, and the ambition of a dinosaur theme park has been realized. Jurassic World operates on a huge scale and is a resounding success in the movie, with visitors fascinated by the rides and various attractions.
Attempts to engineer a new species naturally go awry, and havoc is wreaked.
Despite this development, the movie refrains from sprawling into an action-driven chaotic blockbuster. It remains focused on the characters and their motivations, managing to avoid coming off as a hapless disaster movie.
The movie remains true to the feel of the original ‘Jurassic Park’, following the narrative closely. Of course, as it is a modern adaptation, there are some glaring differences. For one, the dinosaurs are digital. While this may make production and development easier, it does lack the realistic feel of the dinosaurs of the original movie.
Additionally, the script does seem to fall short at times, coming off as a bit incoherent. However, for ‘Jurassic Park’ lovers, it will be easy to see where the original and the new adaptation intersect, which is a credit to the writing.
All in all, the movie has sparked a series of mixed reviews. It could be said that it is a movie you either love or you hate. Check out some Twitter reactions below:

Jurassic World was disappointing. I really wanted it to be more than it was.

Jurassic World was disappointing. Lacked the magic of the first. Sequential and predictable, with suspect CGI and 2D characters. Shame. — Ry (@rysayswhat) June 11, 2015
