“It’s deeply flawed and incredibly thrilling and you’ll enjoy it, despite narrative holes so vast a Brachiosaurus could walk through without having to dip its head.”
So writes music and pop culture journalist, Ed Power, in his review of the movie, Jurassic World.
“A roaring, stomping triumph, with sloppy charm. Power commented on the movies’ plot, which suffered from so much incoherence, “yet still, loud and busy like the original Jurassic Park.” The movie still had the touch of Steven Spielberg, whom director, Colin Trevorrow, exerted the utmost effort to imitate.
The suspense and special effects made up for the uncharismatic actors, sometimes-disappointing dinosaurs, and broken lines. But, compared to movie contenders, Powers’ opined that Jurassic World was still sophisticatedly better.
But, the movies’ true winning streak was that it brought back memories of Jurassic Park that millions of people had loved, and those glorious sentiments over Spielberg’s dinosaur movie masterpiece were what millions of hearts were longing to feel again.
Meanwhile, Jurassic World producers defended its decision to adapt “featherless dinosaurs” in the film.
Several paleontologists have criticized Trevorrow for not keeping up with latest scientific discoveries about the giant reptiles, which ruled the world until the Cretaceous Period.
Jurassic World producers replied that it was because the dinosaurs in the film were all genetically engineered, a class of hybrid; thereby, lacking some features that original dinos possessed.
Jurassic Parks’ resident celebrity paleontologist, Jack Horner, further explained, “This science, the science of hybridization or transgenic engineering, is more plausible than bringing dinosaurs back from the past. Jurassic World is more plausible than the first movie. “We look at it as four stages that we have to go through: The tail, the hands, the teeth, and the beak. We have two of them so far. We have the beak, and we have teeth. We can change the mouth of a bird, and we can put teeth in it. So, we’re fifty percent of the way!”
