Elevator Pitch Jurrasic World has developed from the original Jurrasic Park into a massive tourist attraction with hotels, domes and lots of dinosaurs. Two boys go on a visit where their aunt is the operations manager. There are raptors and a man studying them, and out in the restricted area a newly developed intelligent tyranosaur; it escapes creating mayhem.
Content The boys escape their minder and go exploring, the raptor man interacts with the raptors, the tyranosaur goes on the rampage killing lots of people, there are bewindering chases through the jungle with and against the raptors, and tension in the fights with the tyranosaur. No nudity, sex or drinking.
A View We took my wife’s nephew to see this when it came out and he liked it a lot, but once you’ve seen the initial revelations there’s not really much else. However it made a fortune – one of those rare films to cover its costs on the first weekend and it cost $150 million. I don’t know whether to recommend it, your choice if you like tht sort of thing.
