Money Grabber

So we get yet another sequel to one of the most original movies of all time...Jurassic Park. With the past two not being very good, especially the third movie still in our minds of how bad it was, we get a fourth movie, that had some good moments, but all in all to me was a let down

There were some things I did like though, let me say first I am not saying it is a bad movie, it just could have been ALOT better. The dinosaur action was great. The new holycrapasurus was actually pretty cool for how much they hyped this thing up. Seeing the raptors was awesome, and I think giving them names was a different but good approach. Chris Pratt had some good moments in this movie, but I have seen him better in other movies. Plus Vincent D'Onofrio was great, some may think he was a cartoon but I think he was the least. The movie did do enough for me to enjoy it but it also had a lot wrong with it that just bothered me

1.  The characters were very cartoonish. Especially Bryce Dallas Howard's character, she was so over the top at times in the movies I just wanted to reach in the TV and slap her. The movie also made me second guess Chris Pratt and it wasn't his fault, to me it was the script. Unlike Guardians of the Galaxy where I felt he had a lot more to go off. I felt that the writers just said to Chris "here is the script do it word for word." Speaking of the script, some of the lines were cringe worthy. Now I love one liners, but the delivery of these lines just were very off, and the timing was just off

2. The music. This could also go in with timing, but when they played the theme of the movie, was when they showed buildings. I know its not a big thing but when you put Jurassic in the tittle I want to see the music with dinosaurs not when we are looking at buildings and it made the parts very anti-climatic.

3. The opening scene with the parents was horrible. The mom was so annoying I wished she died instead of SPOILER the babysitter. All this family drama was not needed, and the love story between Pratt and Howard was awkward and very out of place, which they should of focused on this..

4. Telling us how Chris Pratt can train raptors, and why he is. They just threw it in there with not telling us why or how he can train this animals. They could have also focused on the previous park. So, alright there are images and the jeep but to me that is not good enough, talk about previous characters, tell us how you got this parked built after what happened with the last park. They could have been this movie much longer and better talking about the previous park, taking out the family drama and the loves story.

All in all I enjoyed the movie for what it was. It had good action, but it should have been called something different then Jurassic World. I would have liked it a lot more if it wasn't a  Jurassic Park sequel. I did not hate the movie but had problems with it, but like I said it is enjoyable for what it is. 5.5/10
