Review: Is 'Jurassic World' Worth Seeing?

Is 'Jurassic World' worth going to the theaters and paying to see?

'Jurassic World' is the sci-fi adventure film directed by Colin Trevorrow. It is the fourth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise and was written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Derek Connolly, and Trevorrow. 'Jurassic World' stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, B. D. Wong, and Irrfan Khan - Wong is the only actor from any of the previous films to appear in Jurassic World. Jurassic_World_poster A fourth film was initially intended to begin production in 2004 for a summer 2005 release, but endured over a decade of "development hell" as release dates were pushed back several times while the script went through revisions. Steven Spielberg, director of the first two Jurassic Park films, acted as executive producer, as he had for the third film. 'Jurassic World' centers around twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly. The reviews have been overwhelming positive for 'Jurassic World' since the movie first premiered. Here is what the critics had to say.
Jurassic World will scare the hell out of you, and not just for the obvious reasons.
Peter Travers·Rolling Stone
Motorcycle, Chris Pratt, sprinting dinosaurs: If you require more than that out of a movie, you’re being unreasonable.
Kyle Smith·New York Post
While not exceptional, Jurassic World satisfies as a fun summer blockbuster that will get audiences excited to see dinosaurs on the big screen again.
Eric Eisenberg·Cinemablend
Jurassic World, a goofy and fitfully entertaining summer movie, understands and even winks at its place in the pecking order of blockbuster sequels.
