Jurassic World – Movie Review
In the small town of Jalpaiguri, with only four theatres, movies more often than not hit the screens weeks after release. English movies were a rarity, mainly organised by some organisation as charity shows on Sunday mornings. That was early nineties. It was one such charity show when I had my first tryst with dinosaurs, more than two decades ago. And with Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, I was transported back in time. And I must confess the journey was as memorable as the first one.
Jurassic World has every ingredient needed for a classic dinosaur movie – grandeur, new avatars of extinct reptiles of all possible species, a large theme park that hosts over twenty thousand tourists daily, a rich owner for whom morality and ethics matter over profits, two kids who are lost in the park, a crafty and sexy hero who has built the emotional bridge between man and beast, aaaaaand, a big, bad dinosaur that goes rogue.
I don’t think it would be a spoiler if I told you that Jurassic World introduces InDominus Rex, the new bad guy of the reptilian world. Raised in containment, this genetically modified organism is not a dinosaur, strictly speaking. Due to the turn of events, it escapes from its paddock and thus begins the mayhem.
Without spoiling your fun anymore, I would just mention, this tour of the Jurassic World will be worth the 130-odd minutes you spend in the theatre. Right from the Jurassic theme music, which will make you nostalgic, to the cheeky one liners in times of crisis, the film is high on entertainment quotient. And what else would I be expecting, right?
As you exit the theatre at the end, soaking in all the fun, you would surely crave for a REAL Isla Nublar theme park where you could dance with the dinos, literally.
My Rating: 4/5 stars
