Jurassic_World_poster1. Jurassic World (Universal, 4,273 Theaters, 124 Minutes, Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril, Rotten Tomatoes Score (at press time): 70% Fresh [157 Reviews]): I have never been as fascinated by dinosaurs as most boys today are. Maybe it’s a generational thing, but I never acquired the love of all things paleolithic that most members of the XY chromosome set have.

That being said, I enjoyed the first film and will watch the sequels if and when they are on. But the concept seemed to run its course. Of course, when there is money to be made, the course will continue.

This film is set a natural 22 years after the first one, and the one bad idea to come out for that film–that a dinosaur theme park be opened to the public–has come to pass. Miraculously, there has been no eating of guests during the park’s lifespan, but the novelty is starting to wear off and attendance is down. This compels the powers that be to genetically create a “super dinosaur” to bring guests back. However, the fact that they got away with playing god one time doesn’t mean they will always succeed at it. Once the new breed of dinosaur develops homicidal tendencies, all hell breaks loose.
