Dinosaurs rule again with the highly anticipated release of the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film series, Jurassic World.
Jurassic World returns the audience to the island of Isla Nublar. The film explores what has happened in the twenty-two years since John Hammond first played God and used DNA to recreate living dinosaurs.
Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.
After 10 years of operation, and with visitor rates declining, the park owner and eighth richest man in the world, billionaire Simon Masrani (played by Irrfan Khan) asks the scientific Director from the original Jurassic Park, Dr Henry Wu (played by BD Wong), to create a new genetically modified super-dinosaur to revive visitor interest.
Dr Wu combines the DNA from a number of dinosaurs to create the Indominus Rex, which inevitably breaks free from its enclosure causing chaos to once again reign on Isla Nublar.
This electrifying action-adventure film follows the new beast as it roams the jungle island and hunts its prey for sport.
Theme park executive Claire (played by Bryce Dallas Howard) and the animal behaviour expert Owen (played by Chris Pratt) race to rescue Claire’s nephews and to evacuate the 20,000 people in the park before they become the next victim.
Jurassic World moves at a ferocious pace with focus on a spectacular fight scene to end the carnage between the Indominus Rex and a combined effort from velociraptors that had been trained by Owen and a T-Rex.
Director Colin Trevorrow and his collaborators used incredible special effects and brilliant acting to deliver a direct sequel to the original Jurassic Park. The film injected new life into the franchise with fantastic tributes to the original film.
Jurassic World will have every viewer at the edge of their seat, delivering a satisfying experience. It will both scare and delight a new generation of intrepid dinosaur adventure movie goers, much like the original Jurassic Park did in 1993.
