Jurassic World brings B Movie fun back to big screen

Jurassic World, 7/10

SPOILER alert. The dinosaurs escape.

The world that Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton originally brought to silver screens in 1993 is back with a new cast, new director and new energy in this fourth entry to the dinosaur carnage series.

Twenty-two years after entrepreneur John Hammond's original vision for a theme park filled with cloned dinosaurs ended in disaster, a new company has got the park up and running and thousands of visitors fill the Central American island every day to visit Jurassic World.

But after being open for a few years customers are getting bored of watching the same old dinosaurs, so the scientists at the park create a mutant dinosaur hybrid made from the genes of various dinosaurs to boost interest in the park.

You can guess what happens next, but director Colin Trevorrow takes the old franchise and fills it with action and humour that keeps you entertained.

The various dinos look great on the big screen, but the human cast are less memorable.

Chris Pratt is the star of the show as the roughish Owen, a dino trainer who has managed to partially tame the viscous raptors, but his supporting cast does little except serve as people to be rescued by Owen.

But it's the dino-carnage that people come to see, and in that Jurassic World excels.
