Jurassic World is a great film that has great reviewability. The theme park itself is stunning, brimming with life and intrigue. From the roaming dinosaurs on the planes, to the megalodon jumping up to feast on the prey suspended above. That scene especially was pretty neat, as well as when the entire island show as the ever-iconic music played in the background was great. Chris Pratt was excellent throughout the entire film, performing his role incredibly well. Bryce Dallas Howard was also excellent in this film. The two brothers were okay, though for a small portion of the film they were a bit of an afterthought, while Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) hold more of the screen time. They did get closer as brothers at the end. The owner of InGen had very little impact on the film, and though his death via helicopter crash was initially shocking, it wasn’t as impactful as the film intended it to be. The film really picked-up for me when the Adominous Rex was reeking havoc, causing chaos to ensue, such as when the terrordactyls where set loose on the island, and when the Adominous Rex killed the strike team sent out to get it. Of course there is no Jurassic Park without the T-Rex, and the battle that ensued between it and the Adominous Rex was cool. All-in-all, a very good movie that I can imagine to please fans of the original Jurassic Park movies. Score: 4 / 5. @Ay-J of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this movie because it is exactly what anyone would expect. There are lots of CGI dinosaurs. There's lots of action and lots of split second, death-defying escapes for the heroes. There are some generic baddies who are up to no good and who are trying to profit from the dinosaurs. The plot itself is convoluted and silly, but none of that really matters. It was fun and entertaining. It was good popcorn movie. I was also very pleased to see Bryce Dallas Howard was wearing sensible boots when running for her life in this movie, which was a huge improvement over those ridiculous, improbable heels that she was racing around in for the first Jurassic World movie, so hurray for that.

While most here seemed disappointed in this movie, if you're a 'dinosaur action' lover, this film will NOT disappoint you! The visual technology used continues to evolve and the pace of the film is on par with any of the others. I liked the spin used with an 'auction', and the non-stop action, though its no Oscar contender, LOL. If you like Jurassic genre movies, this one is right up your alley

I have to agree with most of the comments posted. This film is okay. The dialogue is so trite and predictable I was voicing the actors next line before they did. I was able to do the same with the scenes, as the storyline is a no brainer. The sets and the CGI work were very good and almost made this worth watching without skipping chapters.

Lazy writing, but pretty good special effects. Not worth seeing in my opinion.

The only really great thing about this film for me was the special effects. Loved the dinosaurs and the events on the island. I thought the writing was weak, and the characters. It seemed like they were all waiting for the other character to make the first move. I hated the way that it ended, with absolutely no reality of what might happen on earth with a mix of humans, trying to run a normal life, and dinosaurs, who wreak havoc everywhere they go. The final decision in the film was wimpy, and not well thought out. In fact, it pissed me off. The producers must want to make a sequel, so they set themselves up for it.

Very disappointing. It really lacked the spirit of the original 3 and even of Jurassic World 1. The premise issue with the volcano was TOO ironic and cliche, the mansion scene was more reminiscent of A Series of Unfortunate Events or Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, the mutant's super slow claw scenes more like a B rate sci-fi horror film or something out of The Chronicles of Riddick. And the whole issue with the little girl was a completely different plot for a different movie. This was a sad, heartbreaking stain on the series that captivated me as a child. You're better off not watching it, and saving the fantastical spirit of the Jurassic Park.

I was happy to Goldblum though.

Jurassic World II starts weakly: despite the disastrous history of human/dinosaur interactions, characters are still debating whether they should be conserved, for some reason. However, the main place where they are conserved is a volcanic island, for some reason (when describing this film, you will use "for some reason" a lot.) The volcano erupts, shenanigans ensue, but that's not enough plot for a complete film. So it has another story about dinosaurs being illegally manufactured and sold -- criminals think dinosaurs make better weapons than actual weapons, for some reason. And then, believe it or not (another phrase you will use frequently) the story turns into a creepy old mansion mystery, with a dinosaur stalking a little girl. The mansion's owner and grandfather to the little girl, who was also a friend of the late owner of Jurassic Park, has not noticed the dinosaur manufacturing and storage facility his assistant has built underneath the house. So. Will this film turn out to be the stupidest of all the Jurassic Park-related movies, or will the next one, apparently about dinosaurs running loose on the mainland, be even worse? ETA: This is NOT a film for young children, what with all the violent dinosaur deaths and murder and things.

Ok, all I kept thinking while watching this was, are these guys under contract? Is that why they're in this movie? Honestly, so not worth it.

Claire Dearing: [imprisoned with Owen; watches two dinosaurs, a mother and a child] Do you remember the first time you saw a dinosaur? First time you see them, it's like... a miracle. You read about them in books, you see the bones in museums but you don't really... believe it. They're like myths. And then you see... the first one alive.

Owen Grady: This is not your fault.

Claire Dearing: But it is.

Owen Grady: No. This one's on me. I showed them the way.
