BWW Review: JURASSIC WORLD is Exactly the Movie You Thought it Would BeBWW Review: JURASSIC WORLD is Exactly the Movie You Thought it Would Be
by Matt Tamanini - Jun 12, 2015

Just so we are clear, JURASSIC WORLD is everything that you would expect from a movie about a theme park built around real, live genetically engineered dinosaurs; especially in a world where it's not the first park of its kind. As you may recall, starting in the 1990s, there was an ill-fated incarnation known as JURASSIC PARK, which didn't end badly enough to dissuade anyone from trying again (either on or off screen). Needless to say, things don't exactly go well this time around either. If your credulity is not strained enough by the film's basic conceits, the minutia of JURASSIC WORLD will surely finish the job. The franchise's cliché fourth film has all of the hackneyed hallmarks you have grown to love and loathe in a summer blockbuster; a man vs. beast action movie that requires the suspension of every available ounce of disbelief, but is ultimately satisfyingly entertaining; either despite, or because of, its ridiculousness.
