After a few delays, I am now about to share with you all on how I feel about the recently released 4th entry in the Jurassic Park film series, Jurassic World.
Just like with the third movie, this fourth movie is not directed by Steven Spielberg (since he directed the first two), for just like the last movie he is the executive producer.
I liked the symbolism behind its premise, mainly regarding the mutant abomination Dinosaur called Indominus rex. It shows how arrogant humanity can be when wanting to do things like make a ton of money. Of course, creating a hybrid was a terrible mistake. Funny to think that after being open for like a year or two, the park is closed down forever due to deaths of tourists.
The music and the visual effects were outstanding. However, there are quite a few flaws in the story's writing. For one thing, the new main characters, like Owen and Claire, weren't really given much for backstories. Like how did they end up working in the park on Isla Nublar in the first place? At least Dr. Henry Wu, once again played by R. D. Wong, was back from the first movie.
Yes, there were also lots of biological/paleontological inaccuracies in it, but the reason why they purposely did that was so they could stay close to the original movie.
I also rather disliked the idea of some of those people thinking of using the creatures as war weapons. It seems to be setting up to a fifth movie, though that might not ever happen because the idea they might have planned just doesn't feel JP-like. Plus, it doesn't give Michael Crichton a whole lot of credit.
Oh yeah, and Mr. DNA has returned! But it was only a brief cameo appearance.
All in all, I feel as though JW is sort of an unbalanced film. It, of course, cannot beat the previous movies (even though the third one is kind of weak).
At least the merchandising campaign is back with movies like this, and Hasbro/Kenner is making Creature action figures again.
