The park is open – a Jurassic World review

Random ramblings on music and movies


Ian Malcolm once famously told John Hammond that he was making all new mistakes in response to the elderly entrepreneur’s claims that he wasn’t repeating his previous fatal errors. While Malcolm may have been proven correct, at least Hammond was aware of his past failures. Flash forward two decades and apparently those who inherited InGen chose to completely ignore what happened the last time an attempt was made to get a dinosaur safari park off the ground, because this time they are most assuredly making the same mistakes again!
Thankfully though, that doesn’t extend beyond the fictional reality of the narrative to the filmmakers themselves. Director Colin Trevorrow and his production team at Universal have taken stock of what worked and what didn’t in the franchise’s first three outings to craft an action-packed, adrenaline-fuelled rollercoaster ride of a summer blockbuster. Jurassic World is a resounding success both as a sequel and as a standalone adventure.
