We’ve seen the previous movies of the same franchise. The name Jurassic Park had really carved its name in film history and seeing its revival with the movie Jurassic World, it’s definitely something that you’d instinctively want to see. But we’ve all seen film flops before—and I tell you now, this is not one of them. Here are the reasons why Jurassic World is a must-watch, and definitely not a movie you’d want to miss out on!
- It’s a movie you can watch over and over again.
You know that a movie is awesome when you can stand to watch it over and over and over again, and not get bored. Jurassic World is definitely one such movie. I, for one, did not get bored watching the dinosaurs. The setting and the premise of the movie—twenty-two years after the original movie came out— was also brilliant.
Though the film industry has come a long way with the way of movies and special effects, which admittedly, have raised the audience’s standards of movies, Jurassic World has met all the fantastic factor a movie goer could want. It definitely did the Jurassic Park franchise justice.
- The special effects are Grade A AWESOME!
Special Effects in a movie is a very important factor in today’s movie-making industry, and many have delivered, many have made epic flops. Guess which category Jurassic World fell into? You guessed it! The former.
No resource on special effects was spared on this movie. The animating of the long extinct dinosaurs looked legit and real! A good thing too, or the movie would have been a total bust. What kind of Jurassic movie would it be if their main idea looked fake?
- Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord Tames Dinosaurs.
Chris Pratt’s performance in the movie was also superb. It felt like watching the Star-Lord of Guardians of the Galaxy duke it out with overgrown, terrifying lizards. And he also tames and bonds with other lizards too. Who would have thought, huh?
But the silliness of the Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy was also undertoned by a measure of seriousness in Chris’s performance as Owen Grady that balances it out, and not make you think that his character was a rip-off of the Marvel franchise.
- It can be taken as a Stand-Alone.
While Jurassic Park may be a famous franchise, not everyone of this generation has seen the movie that many people talked about twenty-two years ago. There was references to the original movie, of course, but even without having seen it, Jurassic World can also be taken as a stand-alone.
That also means that even if the movie can be taken as is, it’s ending is also ambiguous enough to be open for a sequel. Fingers-crossed on that one though. I mean, come on, dinosaurs are still cool, after all these years, you have to admit! The fact that it’s now possible to digitally bring them back to life is just amazing. Surely one can’t get enough of it?
