What we thought about Jurassic World without offending Universal Studios!
Constructive criticism is great for improvement. Sometimes it can be too blunt, but seasoned producers should be able to stomach it.
Jurassic World is on a grander scale, no one is conned to going to the island. The audience are already there. The story line interesting though the thirst for a hybrid version by investors was clearly not felt in the movie. They hybrid Indominus Rex is clearly terrifying, merciless, and ruthless. The plot was not clearly developed like Part 1. Everything was rushed through and the movie was too fast paced from start to finish. At the end of it, it feels like a theme park ride. Dinosaurs everywhere, snapping, growling and chomping on people. Then there was the Dinosaur tamer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) who impressed on these animals when they were babies. Plausible, but still they can chomp you up for lunch. There were not many memorable lines. “We need more teeth,” is copied from JAWS “We’re going to need a bigger boat,” not original, but lame. Also the little boy running everywhere asking the audience to follow, “Come see this, come see that,” is annoying, but hey he’s just an eager kid. Wonder if the audience felt the urge to explore the park like the kid?
Simon Masrani ( Irrfan Khan) an Indian was in the movie, that is a great accomplishment for his agent to get him the part. However certain parts of his dialogue were not clear and one can hope he delivers them well with better enunciation next time round. Funny thing is some places, the Velociraptors seemed somewhat shorter and not fully developed by the graphic animators. We believe that the whole movie was done in a hurry. It shows, there is a clear lack of characterization. Actors come, say their lines, scream and run around the place. Chris Pratt surprised movie goers, many thought he’d not be able to pull of his role, but he has done a great job.
1. Five writers wrote the screenplay… a classic case of Too many cooks spoil the broth.
2. When the investors ask When will the dinosaur be ready? The lab techs answer, “He is already ready,” the movie is so fast paced there is no time to enjoy the plot. There is no clear, defined plot.
But don’t get us wrong. The visuals are great in some spots. Other places it is rather hurried. We wish that next time round there will be genuine story telling and a balance of dinosaurs.
