Close your eyes, think hard, and look back at the 1993 super classic that set your childhood love for Dino's. Some thought of this film as the opportunity to take their children to see a Jurassic Park film as your parents had taken you, but the problem was that when you saw the original film, it was by the great Steven Spielberg who made the "childhood favorite" films of your parents or even your own. John Williams was composing the score of the film. Michael Crichton who wrote the book on which the movie was based on also wrote the screenplay.
The ILM technology was groundbreaking at the time, it was state-of-the-art. When that T-Rex first showed next to the parked cars you thought it was the real deal, everybody was gonna be eaten! Back when movies where made to be called "Films of Cinema", you were ready to relieve those days again. Then you saw Jurassic World and remembered the meaning of nostalgia. To me it was too much of a hype that was put on this, and it felt as if we didn't get anything new. These days CGI is something that we're all accustomed to and so should the filmmakers of Jurassic World. Live sized realistic dinosaurs don't impress us like they used to, they should have focused more on the character development and plot of the movie. Chris Pratt the "raptor-trainer" did a good job with his character of Owen, very straight forward with his line, but not only him. It would seem some of these actors wanted to deliver some of the same feeling we saw in the original. You got the now-it-all Dino-loving brat and his older boring useless sibling, the fat back-stabber, the lawyer, the computer/work nerd, THE JEEPS!!!
But no Goldblum. There were a great many references to the original which made one look back at it, especially a lot of recreated scenes to serve the purpose of remembering and knowing the original, but still no frozen, refrigerator trapped, raptor seen. Though Jurassic World was very original for its take on a what-if the park hadn't closed down completely, there were many questionable things in the film including (spoiler, maybe).
Why is the T-Rex exhibit at the entrance of the park, why is the king of dinosaurs in a massively populated area full of people."
The score itself had all the best parts of the original and some new fanfares for the movie's "climax", but this wasn't a film that I would personally consider a comparison to the original, this was more of a reboot, with many subtle hints pointing at sequels. But as a summer blockbuster I gotta hand it to Trevorrow for a good film that made you feel in many ways as you did with the original. A shoulder-shrugger at the end but definitely worth the watch. it is one of 2015 summer's best.
