The predators are the real superheroes in the latest Jurassic Park film, from Amblin Entertainment. It almost reminds you of the original film by Steven Spielberg back in 1993. The characters are runny, incomplete, and the violence seems to enjoy the predators taking on the humans, which is good because the dinos are suppose to ride high-up in the sky in the film, and unleash their toothy-anger.
The directorial venture is similar to the kind masterminded by Spielberg which caused such a box-office splash back then. There is a storybox in every film sequence, which if you open, opens up to reveal another story inside the suspense-filled storyline. The object of Jurassic World is to run as far away as possible from the dinosaurs. In one scene, pterodactyls pick up park visitors, to prey on them which looks a little bit like Spielberg pulling all his gimmicks out to perform a Hitchcock.
Surprised? Well, that’s nothing compared to what’s about to come up? The visitors to a park movie cannot forsee that the presence of dinosaurs amongst them is about to get dangerous: when they come out of the theatres, watching predators in a zoo, they comment how this simply add to the charm behind sprucing up ticket sales. “Wise” observations such as these mean that you get random ponderings, often, over how Americans lost total interest in moon missions, after the first one and how this particular event can correlate to it – once you have seen one, you will want another much more fierce one.
These “observations” are not necessary because they are going around in a giant circle, and ending up nowhere noteworthy. The fiercer the violence, the more you have the audience hooked. No one wants to see a tearjerker, in a dino-chase movie, either, but the point is that the focus should be about why the dinos took it upon themselves to chase a perfectly lovely family, in as eerie of a landscape as possible.
Inspired by James Cameron’s Aliens, the film zooms into a parlour where dinos get killed by the thousands, rather than how environmental documentaries remind you how to spend your time admiring the creatures and marvel how they once left footprints in the sand so huge, yours look like a mice just stepped into a giant sand-dune. The dinos have humungous teeth, and they can be considered to be a classic mammal rendition of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.
Film Rating: 7/10.
