"Monster is a relative word; to a canary, a cat is a monster. So far we humans were used to being cats."

After the first three movies in the series, you might think that they would have learnt of their incapacity to contain a dinosaur – precisely the reason why Jurassic Park was shut down at the end of the third movie. Twenty-two years later, the park has been reopened, renamed and revamped. The theme park, dubbed Jurassic World, is now owned by Simon Masrani (Irrfan Khan) who has taken Hammond's dream of a dinosaur amusement park to a whole new level.

No matter how many times you've seen the Mosasaurus jump out of the water and devour that great white shark in the trailer, it still takes you aback in the movie. The dinosaurs look amazing and though it's probably not as much of a technical breakthrough compared to the original Jurassic Park in '93, they still look pretty darn good. When Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt sit down to touch one of the wounded dinosaurs, you can actually see and hear their hands patting the animal. You can clearly see the light reflecting off the Triceratops' horns, the layers of eyelids when the Indominus Rex blinks and the blood dripping from its maw because it's just eaten a few people. It can be argued that the dinosaurs do not look scientifically accurate, but for what they were intended to look like, they look pretty darn real to me.

The action sequences are fairly well done, but they range from 'that could have been done better' to just being downright badass. The sounds are fantastic and they will never let you forget what a dinosaur roaring in your face sounds like. The music score fits in well with the movie and the slow, piano tribute to the '93 Jurassic Park soundtrack is chilling.

The actors, especially Pratt and Howard, do a good job portraying their characters, even if the characters themselves don't feel too realistic (hey, you came to watch a dinosaur movie). The story is especially linear and almost predictable, but that really doesn't stop
