Jurassic Park was one of the most iconic and terrifying movies of the early nineties.  Now Jurassic World, the fourth movie reboot 22 years later, is a domestic box office record breaker beating out Avengers: Age of Ultron.   

It begins on an island off the coast of Costa Rica, which is the same setting as the first movie, where they have rebuilt the park and it’s bigger and better than ever before.  It seems as though it is a mix between the coolest zoo in the world and Disney World.  The special effects are great. This time we have a huge operational resort that has a variety of older dinosaurs and one very big new one, the Indominus Rex.  Using genetic engineering, scientists are able to create a brand new bigger, better, and scarier dinosaur that becomes a monster, and of course this monster escapes.  They must try to get the creature back in containment but as it gets closer and closer to the tourists they must change their approach from just trying to capture the Dinosaur to having to kill it.

The hero, a velociraptor trainer named Owen, played by Chris Pratt, has to find the two kids who have gotten lost in the park and with him the whole way is operations manager Claire Dearing, played by Bryce Dallas Howard.  Overall, the actors were phenomenal. Hopefully, this great film can restart the entire series.
